Evaluation of liver tissue by ultrasound elastography and clinical parameters in children with multiple blood cell transfusions.

08:00 EDT 29th March 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Evaluation of liver tissue by ultrasound elastography and clinical parameters in children with multiple blood cell transfusions."

Children receiving multiple blood cell transfusions are prone to iron overload and successive tissue damage in liver parenchyma, making noninvasive screening options desirable. Ultrasound (US) elastography using acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) imaging enables evaluation of liver parenchyma stiffness, and MRI allows for quantification of liver iron concentration.

Normal Liver Stiffness Values in Children - A Comparison of Three Different Elastography Methods.

Noninvasive tests for the evaluation of liver fibrosis are particularly helpful in children to avoid general anesthesia and potential complications of invasive tests. We aimed to establish reference v...

Towards quantitative quasi-static ultrasound elastography using a reference layer for liver imaging application: A preliminary assessment.

Changes in tissue elasticity are generally correlated with pathological phenomena. For example, diffuse liver disease progressively reduces the elasticity of the liver. Quasi-static elastography is po...

Two-dimensional (2-D) shear wave elastography is a new sonographic elastography method for noninvasive measurement of liver stiffness.

Magnetic Resonance Elastography of Liver: Current Update.

The first clinical application of magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) was in the evaluation of chronic liver disease (CLD) for detection and staging of liver fibrosis. In the past 10 years, MRE has ...
