Ultrasound transient elastography for detecting hepatic fibrosis in patients with hepatitis C

Record ID 32015000335
Authors' objectives: Ultrasound transient elastography (TE) involves the ultrasonographic analysis of wave propagation and tissue deformation in patients suspected of or known to have chronic liver disease. TE is based on the principle that fibrosis changes the elasticity and viscosity of tissue. By assessing the propagation of acoustic waves through liver tissue, the extent of fibrosis can be measured.
