BACKGROUND The accurate evaluation of liver fibrosis stage is important in determining the treatment strategy. The limitations of percutaneous liver biopsy as the gold standard are obvious for invasion. Real-time elastography with conventional ultrasound probes and a new quantitative technology for diffuse histological lesion is a novel approach for staging of liver fibrosis. PURPOSE This study aimed to evaluate the value of real-time tissue elastography with a new quantitative technology for… CONTINUE READING
