Liver biopsy abroad
A liver biopsy is a procedure to remove a small piece of liver tissue, so it can be examined under a microscope for signs of damage or disease. Your doctor may recommend a liver biopsy if blood tests or imaging studies suggest you might have a liver problem. A liver biopsy is also used to determine the severity of liver disease.
Why it's done?
A liver biopsy may be done to: Diagnose a liver problem that can't be otherwise identified Obtain a sample of tissue from an abnormality found by an imaging study Determine the severity of liver disease — a process called staging Help develop treatment plans based on the liver's condition Determine how well treatment for liver disease is working Monitor the liver after a liver transplant
Your doctor may recommend a liver biopsy if you have: Abnormal liver test results that can't be explained A mass (tumor) or other abnormalities on your liver as seen on imaging tests Ongoing, unexplained fevers A liver biopsy also is commonly performed to help diagnose and stage certain liver diseases, including: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease Chronic hepatitis B or C Autoimmune hepatitis Alcoholic liver disease Primary biliary cirrhosis Primary sclerosing cholangitis Hemochromatosis Wilson's disease
