By Richard G. Barr
This practical manual brings together knowledge gained from the world's leading authorities on the use of ultrasound elastography. Tissue stiffness or softness visualized by elastography provides an accurate radiological diagnosis of pathologic processes including cancer, inflammation, and fibrosis. It is an effective and accurate imaging modality that helps to avoid invasive biopsies. The first two chapters address the fundamental principles of elastography, subsequent chapters explore its use in specific pathologies. The authors address the extensively validated and implemented use of elastography for diffuse liver disease, breast disease, and thyroid gland disease. They also discuss potential benefits and limitations for the prostate, spleen, pancreas, kidneys, musculoskeletal system, salivary glands, lymph nodes and testes. They also present a chapter on the possible future applications of this constantly evolving technology. This work provides fundamental knowledge on visualizing quantifiable differences in tissue elasticity and on applying this information to improve therapeutic strategies for various pathologies. It is essential reading for radiologists, sonographers, and imaging technicians.
