It is important to have your FibroScan® examination on an empty stomach. Do not eat or drink anything for at least 3 hours prior to your examination. Wear comfortable clothes that will allow access to the right side of your rib cage. It is important to tell your health care provider if you are pregnant, or if you have any active implantable devices, such as pacemakers, defibrillators or pumps.
**Please note: In order to schedule this procedure, your primary care physician must refer you.
