Why do doctors prefer fibrospect to liver biopsy for detection of liver damage in HCV patients?

Why do doctors prefer fibrospect to liver biopsy for detection of liver damage in HCV patients?

Less invasive: Knowing the amount of inflammation and level of fibrosis in the liver can help in deciding what hepatitis therapy a patient needs. Though the liver biopsy is considered the gold standard, the newer generation of tests, when taken in clinical context, can estimate the amount of inflammation and level of fibrosis in the liver. ...Read more

I am looking for atop rated cardiologist who specializes in congestive heart failure and valve replacement.  Please give me name also what hospital in seattle wa specializes in cardiology.  Thank you.

There : There are several excellent cardiologists in seattle and the surrounding areas, many of whom would be very capable of managing these conditions. But, they may not all be available within your health insurance plan. I would recommend that you ask your primary care doctor for a referral to a cardiologist that they know and trust. Don't be afraid to be your own advocate, and make sure that your cardiologist is an expert in the area of care you require. If you are concerned they are not, you can be referred elsewhere. It is also important to understand that cardiologists do not perform valve surgery. If indeed you do require a surgical valve replacement, you would be referred to a cardiac surgeon. If this is the case, you will want to make sure you are seeing an experienced surgeon. ...Read more

38 yr male, good shape, avid runner.Traces of blood in urine.Dad diagnosed with kidney cancer at 40. Dr ordered ultrasound. Would this show cancer?

Not necessarily: Traces of blood in urine can result from many reasons, running and exercise is amongst few of the benign reasons, however it can be an early sign of cancer as well. A thorough investigation is mandatory for anyone with strong family history. One should consult the PCP right away and ideally should be evaluated by a Urologist.

I have been taking Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) 325/10 for chronic back pain diagnosis degenerative disk disease.  Looking for doctor in San Bernardino who can prescribe it.
