Depends: it depends on your definition of decompensated cirrhosis, since cirrhosis itself is a de-compensated condition by definition. Liver function tests( blood draw), ultrasound, and specific types of scans( fibroscan, MRI, CT) can add to the picture. See you internal medicine doc for more specific info, or contact us here at HealthTap for a live consultation
