Thanks to the outstanding efforts of Dry July 2020 participants, Flinders Foundation will be purchasing a FibroScan - vital equipment which allows a non-invasive way of assessing the amount of fibrosis or scarring in a liver, without the need for an invasive liver biopsy.
The amount of fibrosis is a critical risk factor for liver cancer – the more fibrosis, the greater the risk of cancer. By detecting liver issues earlier through a FibroScan, more immediate intervention and treatments can be initiated which will lead to better patient outcomes.
Dry July 2020 participants support will truly be life-changing for many South Australians, including those visiting clinics at Flinders Medical Centre and in remote indigenous communities.
Flinders Foundation would like to thank Dry Julyers for their support and contribution to making a positive difference in the lives of people affected by cancer.
