Shear Wave Elastography Ultrasound

What is a shear wave elastography ultrasound?

Liver elastography is a specialized ultrasound technique that assesses the stiffness or elasticity of liver tissues. It is primarily used to evaluate liver conditions such as fibrosis and cirrhosis. By measuring tissue stiffness, liver elastography helps healthcare providers diagnose liver diseases and assess disease progression. This non-invasive method is especially valuable for monitoring liver health and guiding treatment decisions, particularly in individuals with chronic liver conditions.
