Philips shear wave elastography simplifies liver assessment, making obtaining liver stiffness measurements surprisingly easy and fast.
Simplify liver assessment with noninvasive tools
Obtaining liver stiffness measurements with Philips shear wave elastography is surprisingly easy and fast even on difficult-to-image patients. It’s noninvasive, making it a quick, simple step for sonographers and virtually painless for patients.
What is it?
Philips elastography generates shear waves inside the liver by using acoustic force from a focused ultrasound beam. The system monitors shear wave propagation and measures its velocity, then displays it in a format that is easy to interpret.
