All of the tests required for diagnosis and monitoring are available on site and can be performed during (fibroscan, liver, ultrasound) or after the consultation (endoscopy, MRI, biological tests).
Hepatology is the diagnosis and treatment of conditions of the liver and the biliary tract
The primary diseases are:
- Acute or chronic hepatitis secondary to viral infection (hepatitis A, B, C, D, E, etc.)
- Metabolic and hereditary disorders (hepatic steatosis with or without diabetes, hemochromatosis, Wilson’s disease, etc.)
- Inflammatory and autoimmune diseases (autoimmune diseases, autoimmune hepatitis, cholangitis and primary biliary cirrhosis, sclerosing cholangitis)
- Benign and malignant tumors (cancer of the liver and the biliary tract, hepatocarcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma, etc.)
- Hereditary cholestatis in children and adults
- Biliary lithiasis and its complications.
Diseases of the liver and the biliary tract, with the exception of stones and tumors, are typically asymptomatic. Their presence is most often indicated by biological anomalies that primarily affect the following tests: gamma GT, transaminases, alkaline phosphatase, bilirubin, gammaglobulin, blood and platelet count or by abdominal ultrasound abnormalities. Symptoms such as abnormal fatigue or itching may also lead to a diagnosis.
