Description

In adults with chronic liver diseases, ultrasound and magnetic resonance shear wave elastography (SWE) can replace liver biopsy in several clinical scenarios. Several guidelines on the use of ultrasound SWE for the adult population have been published. However, the number of publications in the pediatric population is limited, and available guidelines on SWE do not specifically address pediatric chronic liver diseases. In this article, we review the literature on the use of SWE for pediatric chronic liver diseases and provide expert opinion on how to use SWE, both ultrasound and magnetic resonance techniques, in the pediatric population.
