Prospective Evaluation of Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse (ARFI) Elastography and High-Frequency B-Mode Ultrasound in Compensated Patients for the Diagnosis of Liver Fibrosis/Cirrhosis in Comparison to Mini-Laparoscopic Biopsy

L. Pfeifer, S. Zopf, J. Siebler, J. Schwitulla, D. Wildner, D. Wachter, M. F. Neurath, D. Strobel

Ultrasound is a well-established noninvasive test for assessing patients with liver disease. The study aims to prospectively compare ultrasound to the new technique elastography (ARFI) for the assessment of liver fibrosis/cirrhosis.

J. E. R. Waage, S. R. Rafaelsen, N. R. Borley, R. F. Havre, E. T. Gubberud, S. Leh, T. Kolbro, K. K. Hagen, G. E. Eide, F. Pfeffer

Elastography is a promising method for the identification and differentiation of malignant tissue in several organ systems. The primary aim of the study was to evaluate the inter- and intraobserver reproducibility of endorectal strain elastography differentiation of adenomas and adenocarcinomas. The secondary aim was to compare the performance of strain elastography to endorectal ultrasonography (ERUS) examinations.

This is the second part of the EFSUMB Guidelines on Interventional Ultrasound. It deals with the diagnostic interventional procedure. General points are discussed which are pertinent to all patients, followed by organ-specific imaging that will allow the correct pathway and planning for the interventional procedure. This will allow for the appropriate imaging workup for each individual interventional procedure.
