What is Elastography?

Elastography is a method in non-invasive medical imaging that helps assess the stiffness of your body’s organs and other structures. Most specifically, it is used to test the liver. Whether the tissue is hard or smooth, it finds out details about the condition of the disease.

Uses of Elastography

Elastography is used to scan the liver for illness. This technique is capable of Identifying and determining how serious the liver condition is.

It also helps in assessing the risk of liver disease symptoms, such as the buildup of fluids in the abdomen.

Preparations for Elastography

Special preparations for ultrasound elastography are not needed. But make sure that all metal jewelry and accessories are stripped before the exam.

Procedure of Elastography

On the surface of the tissue, an ultrasound (US) probe or MR driver is located. The probe or driver sends painless low-frequency signals to the organ under inspection via the body.

To build a graphic map showing the stiffness of the organ, a computer uses these details.

Risks of Elastography

When acceptable safety standards are followed, Elastography provides absolutely no risk to the average patient.
