TMC’s Liver Management Unit Upgrades to the FibroScan 502 Touch

The Medical City |

The Medical City Center for Liver Disease Management and Transplantation (CLDMT) recently launched an innovation in liver disease management, the FibroScan 502 Touch.

The FibroScan 502 Touch system uses elastography as, a painless alternative to liver biopsy, to evaluate severity of liver disease. Elastography is a medical imaging modality that maps the elastic properties of soft tissue to give diagnostic information about the presence or the status of disease.

The launch was held at the Conference Room of The Medical City in Ortigas, Pasig City on February 28, 2017. Present during the launch were CLDMT head Dr. Ma. Vanessa De Villa, Hepatologists Dr. Janus P. Ong, Dr. Madalinee Eternity D. Labio, and Dr. Edhel S. Tripon, TMC doctors and staff.

Dr. Tripon discussed new concepts and tools in Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD), while Dr. Labio talked about the use of the FibroScan device in the clinics.

If you or anyone you know is at risk of or suffer from a liver disease, ask your doctor about the FibroScan test at The Medical City.
