Shear Wave Elastography (SWE) Imaging Webinar
A conversation about Shear Wave Elastography (SWE) Imaging | SonoVol®
Description: Join Dr. Ryan Gessner and guest Dr. Chris Moore from SonoVol for a conversation about shear wave elastography (SWE) imaging.
Tissue Stiffness, derived from SWE, is a biomarker for liver disease: As a result of repetitive or long-lasting injury or inflammation in the liver, scarring (fibrosis) occurs causing the tissue to get stiffer, which increases SWE measurements. In the clinic, SWE is used to non-invasively monitor the onset and progression of nearly every type of chronic liver disease including hepatitis B and C, alcoholic diseases, dysmetabolic steatopathies (NASH), and biliary conditions.
SWE has also been explored in a variety of other tissues, including kidney, muscle and many more which are discussed in this video.
