27/03/2017

Qscan Radiology Clinics are proud to announce that Ultrasound Elastography (ARFI Technology) is now being performed at our Qscan Annerley clinic.

Did you know that chronic hepatitis C affects 80 million people worldwide with millions more new cases diagnosed annually?

As a result, more than 700,000 people are expected to die annually from hepatitis C related diseases. With this alarming rate, accurately determining the degree of liver fibrosis is extremely important in these patients to determine and predict treatment outcomes as well as the likelihood of malignancy. Ultrasound Elastography is a simple, non-invasive and reproducible method of assessing the hardness (or stiffness) of the liver in patients with chronic liver disease. It provides a “virtual biopsy” of the liver and prevents the need for painful intervention.
