ABSTRACT


The purpose of the study is to investigate the usefulness of acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) elastography in the characterization of focal solid liver lesions as benign, malignant, or metastatic using ARFI two-dimensional (2D) imaging and ARFI quantification (shear wave velocities [SWVs]).
Keywords: Acoustic radiation force impulse, elasticity imaging, elastography, liver tumors, shear wave velocities
