Hi,Vincent,thanks for query.out of normal range by just 2 points is acceptable.The reason for advising scan may be he wanted to know about something which causing this elevation of enzymes.Marginal rise may occur due to various reasons,some drugs,alcohol.high fatty foods prior to test etc.So do not worry and go for the scan.bye and take care.
