Liver Biopsy

Introduction of Liver Biopsy

Liver Biopsy is a procedure in which a small tissue from any lump or organ in the body is taken for examination under the microscope. A biopsy is the most definitive test for any disease. If a person is diagnosed with liver disease through imaging tests or blood tests like MRI, CT Scan, or Ultrasound, then Liver Biopsy may be required to confirm the diagnosis.

Liver Biopsy is also done to gauge the extent of the diseases, especially in liver cirrhosis cases.

Why get a Liver Biopsy ?

A liver biopsy may be done to:

  • Monitor the liver after a liver transplant
  • Determine how well the treatment is working for liver disease
  • Help develop treatment plans based on the liver’s condition
  • Determining the severity of the liver disease – a procedure called staging
  • Obtain a sample of tissue from the abnormality found by the imaging study
  • Diagnosis of a liver problem that is not allowed otherwise identified

When to get Liver Biopsy ?

The doctor may recommend you a liver biopsy if you have:

  • A mass (tumor) or other abnormalities on your liver as seen on the imaging tests
  • Abnormal liver test results that are hard to explain
  • Unexplained, ongoing fevers

Preparation for a liver biopsy

Before the liver biopsy, you’ll meet with the doctor to talk about what to expect during the biopsy. It is an excellent time to ask questions about the procedure and ensure you understand the benefits and risks involved.
