Flinders Foundation to purchase a Fibroscanner thanks to Dry July fundraising

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.
