Hi all

is there much difference between a Fibro and a Doppler. I have had only Fibro Scans and recently had a Doppler.
it didn't impress me as being very accurate.a couple of radiographers gave different readings. apparently the radiologist takes an average.
the first radiographer gave a low reading-minimal liver fibrosis and the other radiographer's was serve fibrosis. the discrepancy is too great for me to take it seriously. does anyone else rely on the Doppler for accessing the damage? kindly berrinice

Fibroscan is better.

APRI score seems pretty good with predicting people who are close to or at cirrhosis and should run longer.
YMMV
