ShearWave™ Elastography by Jeremy Bercoff, PhD

Today, a new diagnostic imaging modality has emerged, called elastography, which uses ultrasound to assess tissue differences in stiffness (or elasticity). It provides an imaging representation of what was historically assessed qualitatively by palpation. The main objectives of elastography are to improve diagnostic confidence and increase specificity of the ultrasound exam.

SuperSonic Imagine’s ShearWave™ Elastography is a new ultrasound imaging concept designed to achieve these objectives. Based on automatic generation and analysis of transient shear waves, the mode has the major advantage of being quantitative, real-time and user-skill independent.
