Pediatric Liver Transplant Evaluation: Tests

Blood Tests

Some blood tests help determine how well your child's liver is functioning:

Abdominal Ultrasound

An ultrasound is a safe, painless way to take pictures of the inside of the body, using high-frequency sound waves and a computer. Your child's doctor may order an abdominal ultrasound to get a closer look at the liver. Ultrasounds can be done on an outpatient basis.

If your child's ultrasound is scheduled at a CHOP facility, consult this page for instructions and more information.
