AIMS The objective of the study was to investigate the value of acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) and its application in Achilles tendon elasticity of healthy volunteers. METHODS Bilateral Achilles tendons of 56 healthy individuals were included in the study. The subjects were divided into four age groups. Shear wave velocities (SWVs) of each tendon in the states of relaxation and tension were measured using ARFI technology. We selected the middle section of the Achilles tendon for ARFI… CONTINUE READING
