Assesses tissue strain in real time and displays the measured differences in tissue stiffness as a color map. Its application has been validated in a wide variety of clinical fields: for the breast, thyroid gland and urinary structures.
Using the abdominal convex transducer, it can also provide an estimation of liver fibrosis staging in patients with hepatitis C (LF Index) *1.
It is possible to evaluate tissue stiffness by generating shear waves and measuring Vs, its propagation velocity in the tissue. An index to estimate the degree of hepatic adipogenesis (ATT) can also be measured at the same time.
