To assess liver steatosis, the controlled attenuation parameter (CAP; giving an estimate of ultrasound attenuation ∼3.5 MHz) is available with the M probe of the FibroScan. We report on the adaptation of the CAP for the FibroScan XL probe (center frequency 2.5 MHz) without modifying the range of values (100-400 dB/m). CAP validation was successfully(More)
Ultrasonic transient elastography (TE), enables to assess, under active mechanical constraints, the elasticity of the liver, which correlates with hepatic fibrosis stages. This technique is routinely used in clinical practice to assess noninvasively liver stiffness. The Fibroscan system used in this work generates a shear wave via an impulse stress applied(More)
Vibration-controlled transient elastography (VCTETM) technique is routinely used in clinical practice to assess non-invasively the liver stiffness which is correlated to hepatic fibrosis. Adequate use of the VCTETM probe requires the knowledge of the distance between the skin and the liver parenchyma. This paper compares two methods to estimate this(More)
Transient elastography can be used to measure tissue elasticity by applying a mechanical stress constraint and measuring the velocity of propagation of the induced shear wave, assumed to be proportional to tissue elasticity. In this paper we study two original maximum-likelihood (ML) approaches for shear wave velocity estimation on RF ultrasound signals(More)
Ultrasonic elastography, via vibration-controlled transient elastography (VCTE), enables to assess, under active mechanical constraints, the elasticity of the liver, correlating with fibrosis stages. On the other hand, the same VCTE probe can also be used in passive mode, acquiring RF lines at different locations in the liver. This paper presents a thorough(More)
