Expanding Access to Non-Invasive Liver Disease Management

FibroScan Mini Plus 430, uses VCTE (Transient Elastography) and controlled attenuation parameters mobile liver disease diagnostic testing.


Using patented VCTE and CAP technologies, the FibroScan® 430 Mini+ system is the latest and smallest addition to the FibroScan family of products.  FibroScan devices are indicated for use as an aid to diagnosis and monitoring of adult patients with liver disease. The FibroScan® examination is simple, fast and repeatable over time. This non-invasive device can provide extra confidence when managing patients with liver disease.

The FibroScan® system is designed to optimally serve the busy point of care clinic with the test data you need -- when you need it. FibroScan® is designed with Smart Tools to direct the operator through the examination. These Smart Tools include probe selection tools to adapt the examination to the patient’s morphology, liver targeting tools to ensure the probe is centered on the liver parenchyma, and visual cues to ensure optimal probe positioning. These tools reduce procedure time while enhancing test consistency. The FibroScan® system uses an ergonomically designed transducer to generate a controlled 50 Hz mechanical vibration to induce the shear wave. Pulse echo ultrasound is used to track shear wave speed and liver stiffness is calculated using Young’s Modulus.

The simultaneous assessment of the liver stiffness (VCTE) and ultrasound attenuation rate (CAP) provide important information for the assessment of liver health.

Fully-featured Mobility

Expanding innovation, the FibroScan® 430 Mini+ offers mobility with the same experience and consistent results that you have come to expect from the FibroScan® 502 Touch and FibroScan 530 Compact systems.

Indications For Use

The FibroScan® 430 Mini+ is intended to provide 50Hz shear wave speed measurements and estimates of tissue stiffness as well as 3.5 MHz ultrasound coefficient of attenuation (CAP: Controlled Attenuation Parameter) in internal structures of the body.

FibroScan® 430 Mini+ is indicated for noninvasive measurement in the liver of 50 Hz shear wave speed and estimates of stiffness as well as 3.5 MHz ultrasound coefficient of attenuation (CAP: Controlled Attenuation Parameter).

The shear wave speed and stiffness, and CAP may be used as an aid to diagnosis and monitoring of adult patients with liver disease, as part of an overall assessment of the liver.

Shear wave speed and stiffness may be used as an aid to clinical management of pediatric patients with liver disease.
