    Interesting, what do you think of the ultrasound?

    I don't think the ultrasound tells much about the amount or extent of fibrosis in the liver. It is extremely helpful in in showing other abnormalities such as cancer or enlargement. The ultrasound is also helpful in guiding the Dr. during a liver biopsy, as others have mentioned.

    Good Luck,
    Owen

    Thanks Owen, that was helpful. I suppose because Hep c basically attacks the liver, it's probably something to periodically check on? They didn't find anything but boy I've had my share of symptoms. Much appreciation-
