Chronic liver disease represents a major and rising public healthcare issue, affecting more than one billion people worldwide. It can be caused by a virus, such as hepatitis B or C, by excessive alcohol consumption or by dietary habits, resulting in conditions such as Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) and Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH). These diseases generally remain symptomless and undetected until their very late stages but they progressively worsen over time and might ultimately lead to life-threatening complications, such as liver cirrhosis and liver cancer.

FibroScan is an accurate and efficient solution that quantifies liver fibrosis and steatosis non-invasively in just a few minutes bringing extra clinical confidence to support the management of patients with chronic liver diseases, thus avoiding painful liver biopsies. FibroScan relies on proprietary technology "Vibration-Controlled Transient Elastography", or VCTE, which relies on the combination of shear waves and ultrasound generated at the tip of the device's probe.

The new flagship FibroScan enhances the exam's efficiency, extends the patient's applicability and expands clinical capabilities.

FibroScan 630 Expert features a high performance elastography engine, improved ergonomics, embedded ultrasound guidance system, spleen-dedicated exam, intuitive user interface, touchscreen and advanced keyboard, as well as an integrated barcode reader.

The new device will be launched at the International Liver Congress 2018 that takes place from April 11 to April 15, 2018 in Paris.
