Shearwave Elastography-Medical Device Update
Proven Benefits of ShearWave(TM) Elastography: Radiology and European Radiology Journals Report High Reproducibility and Significant Improvement of Breast Ultrasound Specificity. Unlike conventional elastography methods, which rely on manual compression and measure tissue displacement, ShearWave Elastography requires no manual compression and computes true tissue elasticity by measuring the velocity of shear waves as they propagate in tissue.
