Bloodwork and images: Depending on what the insult to the liver was, we can often see changes in the patients bloodwork. In patients who have had chronic damage to the liver due to alcohol or hepatitis, the bloodwork can remain fairly well preserved until late in the course of the disease. Ultrasound, MRI and ct are used to look at changes in the appearance of the liver architecture and bloodflow.
