This study was done to compare parameters of strain elastography (SE) and shear-wave elastography (SWE) for differentiation of benign and malignant breast masses and determine their best cut-offs.
Both strain elastography and shear wave elastography have been shown to have high sensitivity and specificity for characterizing breast lesions as benign or malignant. Training is important for both strain and shear wave elastography. The unique feature of benign lesions measuring smaller on elastography than B-mode imaging and malignant lesions appearing larger on elastography is an important feature for characterization of breast masses. There are several artifacts which can contain diagnostic information...
In this study, we aimed to determine reference values for normal breast and areolar skin elasticity using shear wave elastography.
Assessment of intraoperative quantitative shear wave elastography (SWE) and contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) for the characterization of focal liver lesions (FLLs) during liver surgery using postoperative histopathological results as the gold standard.
In the early stages of retrobulbar neuritis (RN), the optic disc appears normal on ophthalmoscopy. Therefore, the diagnosis of RN is usually made clinically. However, imaging tools are needed for precise diagnosis of RN, and usually MRI is used. In this study, we investigated the diagnostic performance of strain elastography (SE) and shear wave elastography (SWE) in patients with RN. Elastography is a new sonographic technique and a noninvasive ultrasound method for evaluating the elastic properties of tiss...
Shear wave elastography is emerging as a clinically valuable diagnostic tool to differentiate between benign and malignant breast masses. Elastography techniques assume that soft tissue can be modelled as a purely elastic medium. However, this assumption is often violated as soft tissue exhibits viscoelastic properties. In order to explore the role of viscoelastic parameters in suspicious breast masses, a study was conducted on a group of patients using shear wave dispersion ultrasound vibrometry in the fre...
The objective of our study was to evaluate whether shear wave elastography (SWE) can differentiate benign from malignant microcalcifications of the breast when detected on ultrasound (US). Between February 9, and June 23, 2016, 74 patients with mammographically detected suspicious microcalcifications underwent breast US. When microcalcifications were identified on US, stiffness was assessed using SWE. Biopsy was subsequently performed under US guidance using a 10-gauge vacuum-assisted needle. Qualitative a...
Quantitative Assessment of Liver Stiffness Using Ultrasound Shear Wave Elastography in Patients With Chronic Graft-Versus-Host Disease After Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation: A Pilot Study.
The purpose of this study was to compare hepatic stiffness on ultrasound (US) shear wave elastography (SWE) in patients with chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation versus patients with no underlying liver disease.
Complications of ventral hernia repair (VHR) may be investigated by computed tomography or ultrasound (US) but neither modality gives a quantifiable metric of repair quality short of identifying hernia recurrence. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a growth factor-rich autologous blood product, has been shown to improve incorporation of native tissue with bioprosthetics. In this study, we investigate the effect of PRP on the incorporation and mechanical integrity of a non-crosslinked porcine acellular dermal matri...
Ultrasound shear wave elastography is an imaging modality for noninvasive evaluation of tissue mechanical properties. However, many current techniques overestimate lesions dimension or shape especially when small inclusions are taken into account. In this study we propose a new method called local phase velocity based imaging (LPVI) as an alternative technique to measure tissue elasticity. Two separate acquisitions with ultrasound push beams focused once on the left side and once on the right side of the in...
The plantar fascia is exposed to repetitive tensile stress induced by cyclic loads associated with daily activities, such as walking and running. Due to overuse or abnormal foot alignment, insertional and distal (i.e., mid-substance) regions within the plantar fascia may exhibit microtears, which leads to plantar fasciopathy. Ultrasound shear wave elastography is an imaging technique to measure shear wave velocity propagating through biological tissues, considered herein as an index of tensile stress. This ...
The purpose of this study was to compare the diagnostic value of Young's modulus (E) and shear modulus (G) in the differential diagnosis of benign and malignant breast masses using sound touch elastography (STE) and to explore the relationship between G and E in breast lesions.
Shear wave propagation in the liver has been a robust subject of research, with shear wave speed receiving the most attention. The correlation between increased shear wave speed and increased fibrosis in the liver has been established as a useful diagnostic tool. In comparison, the precise mechanisms of shear wave attenuation, and its relation to diseased states of the liver, are less well-established. This study focused on the hypothesis that steatosis adds a viscous (lossy) component to the liver, which i...
Quantifying stiffness of the lumbar spine musculature using shear-wave elastography (SWE) maybe beneficial in the diagnosis and treatment of non-specific low back pain (LBP). The primary purpose of this study was to establish normative parameter and variance estimates of lumbar spine muscle stiffness at rest and during submaximal contraction levels using SWE in healthy individuals. A second aim was to determine the relationship between lumbar spine muscle stiffness and a variety of demographic, anthropometr...
Objective of the study was to assess the performance of ultrasound strain elastography combined with conventional B-mode ultrasound to diagnose suspicious breast lesions (BI-RADS 4 and 5).
The aim of this study was to determine the contribution of Shear Wave Elastography (SWE) to the diagnosis of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
In this article, we describe our experience with shear wave propagation imaging (SWPI) as an adjunct to 2-dimensional (2D) shear wave elastography (SWE) in a cohort of patients being evaluated for diffuse liver disease. Two-dimensional SWE has been extensively studied in previous publications; however, 2D SWE using propagation images has not been widely described in the literature to date. We observed that when certain artifacts occurred on the color elastograms, highly characteristic changes to shear wave ...
Ultrasound elastography is an emerging imaging technique that provides an objective method to assess the relative or absolute stiffness of soft tissues. The authors have not found any description in the use of ultrasound elastography in vascular anomalies, and we want to share our experience in different cases with ultrasound elastography and its applications in these pathologies.
We aimed to investigate the relation between renal cortical stiffness (CS) obtained by shear-wave elastography (SWE) and contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) development in interventional treatment-planned acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients.
The aim of this study was to analyze the correlation between the severity of idiopathic Garulomatous Mastitis (IGM) and the pre-treatment Shear-Wave Elastography (SWE) findings.
The occurrence of presbyopia and cataract is closely related to changes in the mechanical properties of the crystalline lens. There are no established methods so far for in vivo assessment. By introducing ultrasound elastography, we proposed group velocity (V) of an induced shear wave as a new biomarker to characterize the mechanical properties of the lens in our previous study. Here, we investigated the effect of the ultrasound frequency on measurement accuracy and validated the results with a conventional...
The present study applied the shear wave elastography (SWE) to the median nerve in order to investigate the feasibility and reliability of its use in 40 healthy volunteers. Shear wave velocities of the median nerve on bilateral forearms and right carpal tunnel were obtained with relaxing or stretching conditions. The inter- and intraobserver agreements and differences of nerve elasticity among groups were evaluated using intraclass correlation coefficients, the paired t test, and the Wilcoxon signed-rank te...
Accurate measurements of microelastic properties of soft tissues in-vivo using optical coherence elastography can be affected by motion artifacts caused by cardiac and respiratory cycles. This problem can be overcome using a multielement ultrasound transducer probe where each ultrasound transducer is capable of generating acoustic radiation force (ARF) and, therefore, creating shear waves in tissue. These shear waves, produced during the phase of cardiac and respiratory cycles when tissues are effectively s...
