On an elastogram, low strain values are usually displayed as dark and large strain values as bright (Figure 3).
The strain image, or elastogram, is an image of relative hardness, since the amount of pressure applied by the transducer will change the amount of tissue displacement and the rate of change in displacement.
Because many relatively dark areas that have no clinical significance may appear on the elastogram, the elastogram is always viewed alongside the sonogram from precisely the same position; or the elastogram is superimposed on the sonogram as a color overlay.
The elastogram was exhibited over the B-mode image in a colour scale: red (greatest strain, softest component) and blue (no strain, hardest component) tissue.
The images of wave propagation are interpreted and processed by inversion algorithms, which results in a tissue stiffness map called an elastogram from which the tissue stiffness is measured.
The mean ([+ or -] SD) hepatic stiffness measured on the elastogram was 3.
Of the 140 biopsies, the elastogram image correlated with the standard B-mode ultrasound image in 58 of the 59 cancers (98%), said Dr.
Of the 69 benign findings observed, the elastogram and B-mode ultrasound images correlated in 54 (78%) of cases.
1% strain and uses temporal persistency strategy to enhance the descriptive pattern in the elastogram.
While performing an ultrasound on a patient with a known breast lesion(s), both the standard B-mode image and the elastogram are displayed side-by-side (Figure 1).
You can export FibroScan(R) data, manage data for each patient, guarantee better visualization of the examination results, and re-read elastograms on the physician's computer.
Its unique version of elastography (ShearWave elastography) simplifies obtaining reproducible elastograms and provides quantitative readouts of the Young's modulus.
