BACKGROUND & AIMS Quantitative shear wave elastography was shown to be an effective tool for the non-invasive diagnosis and staging of chronic liver diseases. The liver shear modulus, estimated from the propagation velocity of shear waves, is correlated to the degree of fibrosis and can therefore be used for the non-invasive staging of fibrosis. METHODS We performed a clinical prospective study in a total of 120 patients with various chronic liver diseases to compare the accuracy of… CONTINUE READING
