    I had one done in January 2007 and as far as I can remember it involves lying on your back while an ultra-sound type thing is done to you. It's painless - but the gel may be a little cold! DD

    Hello Mig

    Glad you now have the results but sorry that the consultant is still not happy with them. Really hope it doesn't take long for your scan appt to come through.

    Thinking of you.

    As dreamdaisy has said there is nothing to a liver scan - you just lie there.
