Elastography is Changing Radiology

Radiologists have new opportunities to support patient care

With elastography technologies, radiologists can support and influence patient care with clinical information available only through elastography. But to do so, radiologists must become experts in guiding adoption of these tools, including understanding how they work.

Understanding Elastography
ARFI elastography compresses tissue within a user-defined region of interest using an acoustic beam. ARFI technology also generates and tracks the propagation of shear waves to provide a quantitative measurement of tissue stiffness.
