• Pre-Donation Evaluation

    Every potential liver donor will need to go through a number of exams. Completing the entire donor evaluation may take several weeks, so you should be aware that this process can be time-consuming. The evaluations for potential liver donors include:

    • Blood tests
    • Chest x-ray
    • CT scan
    • Electrocardiogram (EKG)
    • Physical exam
    • Tissue matching

    You also will need to have a consult with each member of our multidisciplinary donor evaluation team to guarantee that no detail has gone unnoticed.

    Additional testing may be needed depending on certain medical indications, your age, gender or health condition. They include:

    • Liver biopsy
    • Age-specific health screening
    • Echocardiogram
    • Psychosocial assessment
