Ultrasound elastography is an emerging imaging technique that provides an objective method to assess the relative or absolute stiffness of soft tissues. The authors have not found any description in the use of ultrasound elastography in vascular anomalies, and we want to share our experience in different cases with ultrasound elastography and its applications in these pathologies.

On the basis of 2-dimensional fetal echocardiographic findings, we investigated 4 different fetal vascular ring cases using spatiotemporal image correlation (STIC) combined with high-definition (HD) flow imaging. An in-depth 3-dimensional perspective of aortic arch branching (ie, the brachiocephalic arteries) was created by application of glass body and HDlive flow rendering algorithms (GE Healthcare, Zipf, Austria). Additionally, complete (U- or O-shaped) or incomplete (C-shaped) vascular rings were clearly differentiated in utero, and articulations around the trachea and esophagus were more easily imaged...

OBJECTIVES: Ultrasound (US) is increasingly being used as an extension of the physical examination on the sidelines, in training rooms, and in clinics. Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury in sport is common, but the literature on US findings after acute ACL rupture is limited. Three indirect US findings of ACL rupture have been described, and this study assessed the validity of these indirect signs. METHODS: Patients with an acute knee injury (<6 weeks) underwent US examinations to determine whether there was evidence of a femoral notch sign, posterior cruciate ligament wave sign, or capsular protrusion sign...

OBJECTIVES: In this study, we aimed to determine reference values for normal breast and areolar skin elasticity using shear wave elastography. METHODS: The right breasts of 200 female participants were evaluated. The age, weight, body mass index, menopausal status, and parity number of all participants were noted. The elasticity values and thickness of the areolar skin and 4 quadrants of the breast skin of all participants were measured. To assess the reproducibility of shear wave elastography, a randomly selected subgroup of 35 participants was reevaluated by a second observer...

Scapulothoracic pain is a common ailment, but the underlying cause can be difficult to diagnose in a timely manner, and treatment options are limited. We retrospectively review our experience using ultrasound-guided therapeutic scapulothoracic interval steroid injections to treat scapulothoracic pain and review correlative magnetic resonance imaging findings over a 5-year period. Although a variety of structural causes are known to cause scapulothoracic pain, in our experience, most cases lack correlative imaging findings...

OBJECTIVES: Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common dermatologic malignant skin cancer. Infiltrative histologic variants are more aggressive and require wider surgical margins or Mohs surgery, in contrast with noninfiltrative variants, which are commonly treated with standard surgical excision. Elastography has not been used to date to differentiate between the histologic variants of BCC. The purpose of this study was to differentiate infiltrative from noninfiltrative BCCs on elastography...

Nowadays, shear wave elastographic techniques have brought a substantial reduction of liver biopsies performed to stage liver fibrosis in patients with chronic hepatitis. The availability of accurate noninvasive methods for the assessment of liver fibrosis was an important breakthrough and prompted ultrasound federations of societies as well as clinical and radiologic societies to issue international guidelines or consensus statements on the clinical applications of shear wave elastographic techniques. This article reviews the guidelines that have been published as of today...
