Their story

Their story

Since its creation in 2001, Echosens has been able to drive its development and branch out its technology into several product ranges, with sustained growth in France and abroad (US, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, China, Europe) with more than 90% of sales made outside of France.

Given the increase in liver diseases, particularly NASH, or “fatty liver” disease, Echosens is continuing its expansion on a global scale.

Today, many pharmaceutical companies are developing treatments for NASH, and FibroScan® is established as a standard-setting solution.
