US ELASTOGRAPHY: REVIEW of TECHNIQUES and CLINICAL APPLICATIONS













Conclusion
Evaluation of diffuse liver disease is the best validated  application of USE and has been widely adopted for non-invasive detection and staging of liver fibrosis as well as monitoring liver treatment response. Focal breast lesion USE has also been well studied and has been incorporated as an associated feature in the 2nd edition of the BI-RADS US lexicon.
There is encouraging data that USE may also be used to assess malignancy of focal liver lesions, thyroid nodules, focal renal masses, and lymph nodes, grade renal fibrosis, and guide TRUS-directed prostate biopsies, but further research with unbiased large scale studies are still required. Also, technique standardization to allow comparison of values between studies and development of new solutions for current technical limitations and biologic/physiologic confounders need to be pursued. USE holds immense potential for various clinical applications, and continued development will lead to widespread clinical adoption in the upcoming years.
