About This Lecture:

Provides an overview of Virtual TouchTM, Siemens' first commercially available implementation of Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse (ARFI) technology. 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. Virtual Touch Imaging provides a qualitative grayscale map (elastogram) of relative stiffness for a user-defined region of interest. Using this method, stiff tissue may be differentiated from soft tissue even if appearing isoechoic using conventional ultrasound imaging.
