SWE Elastography

Hepatic fibrosis accompanies improbably the evolution of chronic hepatitis. In the diagnostic, staging and treatment protocols, the assessment of liver fibrosis is absolutely mandatory in the correct gestation. Liver biopsy is an invasive method with risks. Currently, there are a number of non-invasive tests that offer the correct staging of fibrosis and are admitted in the therapeutic decision and monitoring of chronic hepatitis.

ShearWave elastography is a technological achievement that allows ultrasound to provide complementary information accurately measuring tissue elasticity; this is appreciated by the propagation velocity of the waves in the tissue. ShearWave elastography is used on many organs such as liver, prostate, thyroid, breast or gynecology.
