To evaluate the diagnostic performance of two-dimensional shear-wave elastography (SWE) for staging hepatic fibrosis in the background liver parenchyma in patients with liver tumors before hepatic resection, using resected tissue pathology as a reference standard.

A single-center, observational, prospective, single cohort study with before-after design. Evaluation by shear-wave elastography, measured in kilopascals (KPa), of the muscle, tendon and c...
The aim of this study is to test a non-invasive imaging technique to reliably diagnose NAFLD in children and adolescents with obesity and assess the degree of fibrosis.
Tissue elasticity is being increasingly used as diagnostic parameter, since at the macroscopic level benign breast lesions tend to be stiffer than normal breast tissue but softer than brea...
Shear Wave Elastography (SWE™) is a quantitative elastography method for measuring tissue stiffness. The difference in stiffness between benign and malignant tumors has been demonstrate...
Assess the accuracy of the sequential measurements by 3D Shear Wave Elastography (SWE) for predicting histological response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in patients with locally advanced br...
To assess the performance of two-dimensional shear wave elastography (2D-SWE) on the GE LOGIQ E9 ultrasound system in a cohort of healthy subjects and to investigate its accuracy in the staging of ...
This prospective study was conducted to assess the diagnostic accuracy of two-dimensional shear wave elastography (2D SWE) in the diagnosis of liver fibrosis in patients with chronic liver disease and...
To prospectively evaluate the diagnostic performance of 3-dimensional (3D) shear wave elastography (SWE) for assessing thyroid nodules.
To explore the association between liver stiffness and the Child-Pugh classification of liver function by shear wave elastography (SWE).
The first aim of this study was to analyze the relationships between liver stiffness measurement, hepatic venous pressure and liver fibrosis. The second aim was to demonstrate the utility of real-time...
The internal resistance of a material to moving some parts of it parallel to a fixed plane, in contrast to stretching (TENSILE STRENGTH) or compression (COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH). Ionic crystals are brittle because, when subjected to shear, ions of the same charge are brought next to each other, which causes repulsion.
Echocardiography amplified by the addition of depth to the conventional two-dimensional ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY visualizing only the length and width of the heart. Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging was first described in 1961 but its application to echocardiography did not take place until 1974. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)
A benign epithelial tumor of the LIVER.
A human liver tumor cell line used to study a variety of liver-specific metabolic functions.
The process of generating three-dimensional images by electronic, photographic, or other methods. For example, three-dimensional images can be generated by assembling multiple tomographic images with the aid of a computer, while photographic 3-D images (HOLOGRAPHY) can be made by exposing film to the interference pattern created when two laser light sources shine on an object.
Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
