OBJECTIVE It is difficult to evaluate the function of levator ani with no defect encountered in routine practice. Elastography is a new adjunct to real-time ultrasound imaging that overlays traditional B-mode imaging with a color graphic representation of tissue elasticity. The aim of this study is to specifically evaluate the function of levator ani with no defect by ES (elastography). METHODS This was a prospective, observational study. All patients were examined by MRI and the cases with… CONTINUE READING
