Fibroscan in the United States

Here is a link to find hospitals who offer Fibroscan in the US.  I don't think it's a complete list because Rainbowray said he got one at University of the Pacific Hospital in California and that's not on the map.

It's a start tho.

There's not a lot of this machines available in the US. There's only 1 in Ohio, which is in Cincinnati.
