PURPOSE: To assess chronic liver disease (CLD) using multiparametric US in a private practice setting in a cohort of patients with increased skin-to-liver distance. METHODS: 110 consecutive patients with increased skin-to-liver distance scheduled …

Breast elastography has been available for more than 15 years but is not widely incorporated into clinical practice. Many publications report extremely high accuracy for various breast elastographic techniques. However, results in the literature are…

Objectives-The purpose of this study was to determine whether the elasticity imaging/B-mode ratio on strain elastography can predict breast cancer tumor grades. Methods-A retrospective review of patients with breast lesions who underwent strain…

Purpose: The objectives of the study were to evaluate the accuracy of the "bull's-eye" artifact of elasticity imaging (EI) in determining the benignity of cystic breast lesions and to determine the utility of such artifact in reducing the biopsy rate…

Objectives-The purpose of this study was to determine the sensitivity and specificity of real-time compression elasticity imaging in characterizing breast lesions as benign or malignant. Methods-A cohort of 578 women scheduled for sonographically…

Breast elastography is a new sonographic technique that provides additional characterization information on breast lesions over conventional sonography and mammography. This technique provides information on the strain or hardness of a lesion,…

Within the field of elastography, a relatively new approach analyzes the limiting case of shear waves established as a reverberant field. In this framework, it is assumed that a distribution of shear waves exists, oriented across all directions in 3D…

Objective Strain ratio (SR) is a semiquantitative parameter in differentiating benign from malignant tumors in breast ultrasound elastography. Currently, SR is computed manually and, thus, user dependent. The objective of this study was to evaluate…

There are 3 methods of interpreting breast strain elastography: the elastographic-to-B-mode length ratio (E/B), a 5-point color scale (5P), and the strain ratio (SR). This meta-analysis assessed which method is superior to the others. A systematic…

Distinguishing malignant versus benign lymphadenopathies is a major diagnostic dilemma in clinical medicine. Metastatic deposits in normal-sized lymph nodes (LNs) can be smaller than a millimeter, thus presenting a diagnostic challenge. In most…
