BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility of using acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) elastography, AST-to-platelet ratio index (APRI), and FIB-4 in assessing liver fibrosis and free portal pressure in patients with hepatitis B. MATERIAL AND METHODS We enrolled 126 patients with hepatitis B who underwent liver surgery at the General Surgery Department of the First Affiliated Hospital of Shihezi University Medical School from February 2013 to August 2015. Preoperatively, shear wave velocity (SWV) of the liver was measured with the Siemens S2000 ultrasound system to reflect liver stiffness...

In previous studies of acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) elastography, using Virtual Touch tissue quantification (VTQ) (Siemens Acuson S2000), it was reported that the measurement of renal shear wave speed in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) is not influenced exclusively by renal fibrosis. The purpose of the present study was to analyze the role of VTQ in patients with diabetic kidney disease, considered the main cause of CKD. The study group included 164 patients: 80 patients with diabetic kidney disease (DKD) and 84 without renal disease or diabetes mellitus...

OBJECTIVES: Liver fibrosis (LF) is crucial for the individualized management of patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV). We evaluated the concordance between two noninvasive methods for staging LF, transient elastography (TE) and acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI), in patients coinfected with human immunodeficiency virus and HCV. We propose an algorithm for optimal use of both techniques in routine clinical practice. METHODS: A total of 89 human immunodeficiency virus/HCV-coinfected patients underwent TE and ARFI on the same day...

BACKGROUND: Elastography is a promising way to assess tissue differences regarding stiffness or elasticity, which has been historically assessed manually by palpation. Combined with conventional imaging modalities, shear wave elastography can potentially evaluate the stiffness of a breast lesion and consequently help detect malignant breast tumor from benign ones. The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic role of shear wave elastography in breast lesions in the Indian population...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to evaluate the diagnostic value of acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) imaging and strain elastography in differentiating malignant from benign thyroid nodules. METHODS: This study included 128 patients (104 female and 24 male; mean age ± standard deviation, 48 ± 11 years; range, 23-76 years) with 152 pathologically proven thyroid nodules. Conventional sonography, strain ratio (SR) of strain elastography, virtual touch tissue imaging (VTI) grade, and virtual touch tissue quantification (shear wave velocity [SWV]) from ARFI imaging data were generated for each nodule...

We compared a quasi-static ultrasound elastography technique, referred to as electrode displacement elastography (EDE), with acoustic radiation force impulse imaging (ARFI) for monitoring microwave ablation (MWA) procedures on patients diagnosed with liver neoplasms. Forty-nine patients recruited to this study underwent EDE and ARFI with a Siemens Acuson S2000 system after an MWA procedure. On the basis of visualization results from two observers, the ablated region in ARFI images was recognizable on 20 patients on average in conjunction with B-mode imaging, whereas delineable ablation boundaries could be generated on 4 patients on average...

OBJECTIVES: To assess if elasticity score (ES) and shear wave velocity (SWV) measurement obtained using ARFI elastography can differentiate between parathyroid lesions and thyroid nodules. MATERIALS AND METHODS: ARFI elastography was performed on patients with primary hyperparathyroidism or solid thyroid nodules who were being considered for surgery using virtual touch quantification and virtual touch imaging (VTI) software. Only patients with surgical histopathology (47 parathyroid lesions, 38 benign thyroid nodules and 55 malignant thyroid nodules) were included for final analysis...

The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the efficacy of B-mode, Doppler, contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS), and Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse (ARFI) elastography in predicting malignancy in canine mammary masses. This was a prospective cohort study from 2014 to 2016, which included 153 bitches with one or more mammary masses. A total of 300 masses were evaluated by ultrasonography (B-mode, Doppler, CEUS, and ARFI) and subsequently classified as benign or malignant by histopathology. Each ultrasound parameters studied were compared between benign and malignant masses by Chi-square or Student tests and differences were considered significant when P < 0...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the role of ultrasound elastography using acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) quantification in characterizing and differentiating malignant versus benign thyroid nodules. A total of 40 thyroid nodules were evaluated with conventional sonography and ultrasound elastography using ARFI quantification. The final diagnosis was obtained from histologic findings. A total of 14 malignant and 26 benign nodules were diagnosed on the basis of histologic examination. Majority of the malignant thyroid nodules demonstrated presence of intranodular vascular flow, hypoechoic echotexture, absent halo, irregular margins and microcalcifications...

In clinical decision making, in addition to anatomical information, biomechanical properties of soft tissues may provide additional clues for disease diagnosis. Given the fact that most of diseases are originated from micron sized structures, an elastography imaging system of fine resolution (~100 µm) and deep penetration depth capable of providing both qualitative and quantitative measurements of biomechanical properties is desired. Here, we report a newly developed multi-functional ultrasonic micro-elastography imaging system in which acoustic radiation force impulse imaging (ARFI) and shear wave elasticity imaging (SWEI) are implemented...

AIMS: To assess the safety and feasibility of acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) elastography in the eyes of rats. Material and methods: One hundred and twenty-six SD rats were divided into 7 groups. Group 1 was the control group and Group 2 to Group 7 were investigated by ARFI elastography using increased powers of 5%, 10%, 20%, 50%, and 100% and repetitions of 5 or 10. The changes of ocular architecture structures and functions were examined by phthalmoscopic, histopathologic, and light reflex examination, and the expression level of IL-6, IL-8, and TNF-α was determined in days 1, 3, and 7 after ARFI elastography, respectively...

OBJECTIVES: The accurate assessment of liver fibrosis is clinically important in patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB). Blood tests and elastography are now widely used for the noninvasive diagnosis of liver fibrosis in CHB patients. The aim of this study was to develop a new and more accurate predictive model, which combines elastography data, serum biomarkers, and individual characteristics, to discriminate between CHB patients with and without significant liver fibrosis. METHODS: Two noninvasive methods, specifically, an ultrasound elastography technique termed acoustic radiation force impulse imaging (ARFI) and a blood test, were used to assess a cohort of 345 patients (estimation group, 218 patients; validation group, 127 patients) with CHB...

Severe alpha-1-antitrypsin (AAT) deficiency (PiZZ) is a risk factor for liver disease, but the prevalence of liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular cancer in PiZZ adults is unknown. The risk of liver disease in adults with moderate AAT deficiency (PiSZ) is also unknown. A cohort of 127 PiZZ, 2 PiZnull, 54 PiSZ, and 1 PiSnull individuals were identified by the Swedish national neonatal AAT screening program between 1972 and 1974, when all 200,000 newborn infants in Sweden were screened for AAT deficiency. The cohort has been followed up since birth...

PURPOSE: To compare and correlate the diagnostic efficiency of acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) elastography with biochemical markers for assessing hepatic changes in overweight and obese children. METHODS: This prospective study was approved by the institutional ethics committee. It included 54 overweight and obese children and 50 normal children (as a control group) in the age range 5-18 years. For all children, we performed grayscale ultrasonography to diagnose fatty liver, ARFI elastography to measure liver stiffness, and biochemical evaluation for aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), and serum triglyceride (TG) levels...
