OBJECTIVE To evaluate the reproducibility of real-time shear wave elastography in assessing liver elasticity in healthy volunteers. METHODS Forty-two volunteers were studied in day 1. Shear wave elastography studies were performed by using the ultrasound system Aixplorer™ (SuperSonic Imagine S.A., Aix-en-Provence, France) with a convex broadband probe. Measurements were carried by two operators, an expert (operator 1) and a novice (operator 2). Examinations were performed on the right lobe of… CONTINUE READING
