Going Beyond the Biopsy
Dedicated to accelerating the acceptance and adoption of non-invasive diagnostics as an alternative to biopsy
Global Liver Institute’s Beyond the Biopsy program is a multifaceted awareness campaign dedicated to accelerating the acceptance and adoption of non-invasive diagnostics as an alternative to liver biopsy. The initiative encourages advocates to support greater adoption of non-invasive diagnostics by directly influencing legislative, regulatory, and coverage/reimbursement changes.
