Noninvasive Assessment of Liver Disease—Measurement of Hepatic Fibrosis Using Shear Wave Elastography (SWE)

The evaluation of liver fibrosis is said to be one of the factors of the liver cancer development. The noninvasive testing is considered for abdominal echography, MRI, a blood marker in various ways. We announce the evaluation as an article by liver fibrosis using the probe for the heart before, too. This time is shear wave elastography using the echo probe for the abdomen (SWE). We used and examined it in normal, chronic hepatitis patients with cirrhosis. We tried it, but, in the patients with cirrhosis, there was no examination in the change in a value after ascites time and ascitic drainage. The future examination thinks about a comparison with the liver biopsy, the comparison with the liver fibrosis marker. Also, we think that a malignancy and the benign differentiation should be possible for a liver tumor.
