Siemens Virtual Touch Quantification
#399 Released On : Aug 18, 2014 | Time : 1 min
Part 1
This brief video provides an overview of Siemens Virtual Touch Quantification
Read More
Objective :
Virtual TouchTM Quantification provides a quantitative assessment of tissue stiffness through measurement of shear wave speed. Shear waves are generated by displacement of tissue and attenuate approximately 10,000 times more rapidly than conventional ultrasound waves. To perform Virtual Touch Quantification a small region of interest or ROI is placed at the desired assessment location. A standard transducer is used to apply an ultrasound push pulse which runs alongside the ROI. This slightly compresses the tissue and as a result sound waves called shear waves are naturally propagated perpendicular to the push pulse throughout the tissue including through the ROI. Multiple detection pulses are sent through the ROI, measuring the speed of the shear waves by calculating the time required for each shear wave to reach its peak. Speed correlates to the tissue stiffness. The quantitative result is displayed in meters per second instantly along with the depth of the ROI. X

Siemens Virtual Touch IQ Imaging
#395 Released On : Jul 14, 2014 | Time : 2 min
Part 1
Virtual Touch IQ is the third generation of Siemens ARFI technology for Elasticity Imaging, adding quantification to Virtual Touch imaging.
Read More
Objective :
Virtual Touch IQ combines imaging and quantification in a single image and can be complimentary to information obtained from eSie Touch elasticity imaging. Designed to focus on a user-defined region of interest (ROI), Virtual Touch IQ applies push pulses sequentially across the ROI which slightly compress tissue. This causes lateral sound waves or shear waves to transmit across the ROI. A series of ultrasound detection pulses follow immediately in a quick push pulse detect pulse sequence. Velocities are then calculated for each area within the ROI. X

Objective :
Virtual Touch imaging, available on the ACUSON S2000TM and ACUSON S3000TM ultrasound systems, implements Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse (ARFI) technology for evaluation of deep tissues not accessible by superficial compression elastography.

Siemens eSie Touch Elasticity Imaging
#386 Released On : Jun 02, 2014 | Time : 40 min
Part 1
This brief video provides an introduction to eSie Touch Elasticity Imaging, one of the Siemens technologies for Tissue Strain Analytics.
Read More
Objective :
eSie Touch Elasticity Imaging provides a visual assessment of tissue stiffness and can, for example, allow a subtle lesion in soft tissue to be more clearly visualized and assessed. The stiffness or elasticity of different tissue types varies. When a uniform stress is applied each will deform differently and the resulting mapping of these different degrees of deformation clearly illustrates relative tissue stiffness. to use eSie Touch simply place a region of interest box on the desired area then activate the technology. The B-mode image will then display side-by-side with the elastogram. Using real-time correlation methods the system continuously estimates the degree of tissue deformation and displays the relative stiffness on either a gray-scale or colorized elasticity image. X
