Signs and Symptoms of End Stage Liver Disease
When diagnosing liver disease, specialists will perform a thorough evaluation, listen to the patient’s symptoms, and look for signs of liver disease through a complete physical examination. In addition, the doctor may request additional studies, including a liver biopsy, liver function tests, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) scan, and/or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan.
