BACKGROUND & AIMS To assess the correlation between liver stiffness measurement (LSM) by real-time shear wave elastography (SWE) and hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG) and to investigate the diagnostic performance of SWE for predicting clinically significant and severe portal hypertension (CSPH and SPH). METHODS Clinical data of 115 cirrhotic patients with haemodynamic measurement were consecutively collected. Liver stiffness (LS) was measured using SWE by repeated performance five times… CONTINUE READING
