Liver Biopsy

A liver biopsy is done to examine the tissue of the liver for a new disease or changes in a known disease. If your child is known to have liver disease, a biopsy may help to see how he or she is responding to the medical treatment.

The nurse, doctor and/or Child Life staff will explain the test to you and your child.
