By Dirk-André Clevert, Mirko D'Onofrio, Emilio Quaia

With assistance from an intensive sequence of top of the range photographs, this atlas describes the entire strength functions of elastosonography in regimen medical perform. After a short advent on technical and actual facets, the diagnostic merits of elastosonography in quite a number settings are illustrated by way of a variety of consultant instances. The insurance encompasses pathologies of the liver, spleen, pancreas, kidney, breast, thyroid, testis, musculoskeletal method, and vascular procedure. furthermore, worthwhile correlations with imaging appearances on ultrasound and computed tomography are integrated. Elastosonography is a strong, really new diagnostic process that assesses the pliancy of tissues as a trademark of malignancy. Readers will locate this ebook to be a very good relief to take advantage of and interpretation of the technique.
