Referral Forms

Fibroscan Referral Form

Fibroscan® (transient elastography) is a non-invasive method of assessing liver fibrosis based on the measurement of liver stiffness. The technique uses an ultrasound transducer probe to determine the speed of a shear wave emitted from a transducer probe directed towards the liver. The velocity of this wave is proportional to the density, stiffness or degree of fibrosis in the liver.

Intestinal Ultrasound Referral Form

Intestinal ultrasound (IUS) is a non-invasive method of assessing inflammation in the colon and small bowel to monitor inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis).
