Ultrasound elastography is perhaps the most important breakthrough in the evolution of ultrasonography in the last 20 years. Elastography is a non-invasive medical imaging technique, using low frequency vibrations during an ultrasound or MRI to measure the stiffness (or elasticity) of organs inside the body. It is particularly useful for detecting the presence and severity of liver disease.
Liver disease can result from many causes, including:
Saddleback Medical Center has implemented Canon Medical's technologies to assist in diagnosing diseased liver and early stage liver disease, including steatosis and inflammation, and an assessment of steatosis. According to the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound (SRU) consensus, in select patients, elastography may eliminate the need for liver biopsy for staging fibrosis.
