Blood tests are: Just that, tests. Scan is an image, a picture. You didn't say how elevated your liver enzyme tests are, but if they are really high and stay there or get worse, it means that your liver cells are not working well, even though your liver's image is good. Ask your doctor who ordered the tests why you still have nausea after 4 months. Could be hepatitis.
