Image guided quantification of liver tissue stiffness
- Real-time ShearWave™ Elastography
Do you see Hepatitis B or C patients in your practice?
ShearWave Elastography (SWE™) is a comfortable, non-invasive technology that can be used for imaging patients with chronic liver disease. SWE offers the advantage of a real-time image of liver anatomy, while also providing a color coded map and quantitative measurement of liver stiffness.
The real-time ShearWave Elastography exam:
- Can be performed in a hospital or private practice
- Takes as little as 60 seconds
- Provides imaging and liver stiffness quantification simultaneously
The B-Mode ratio tool, also available on Aixplorer, can be used to assess liver echogenicity against a reference tissue (renal cortex for example), which can be used as an indicator of the extend of liver steatosis.
