OBJECTIVE This study assessed the clinical usefulness of shear wave elastography (SWE) during ultrasound for differentiating between focal nodular hyperplasias (FNHs) and hepatocellular adenomas (HAs). MATERIALS AND METHODS SWE was performed on 56 patients presenting with 76 liver lesions (57 FNHs and 19HAs) that were confirmed by MRI and contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) (n=55) or by histology (n=21). A mean elasticity value was obtained for each lesion. The ratios of the elasticity of the… CONTINUE READING
