Fibrospect/Fibrosure: It is a surrogate test for determination of scar tissue in the liver (fibrosis). Tests are processed in the United States. They reliable at both end of the spectrum. If low means little or no fibrosis in the liver and if high, there is already cirrhosis of the liver. The in-bnetween values are harder to precise and a liver biopsyu may still be needed.
