PURPOSE The aim of the study was to evaluate the intraobserver reproducibility and to determine the elasticity characteristics of focal liver lesions (FLLs) by shear wave elastography (SWE). METHODS One hundred thirty-six FLLs in 118 patients were examined with SWE for quantitative and qualitative assessment of stiffness. Three SWE images were obtained for each lesion and liver parenchyma by 1 radiologist. Intraobserver reproducibility was assessed by intraclass correlation coefficients (ICCs… CONTINUE READING
