La elastografía por resonancia magnética es un método no invasivo y eficaz, cuyos resultados tienen concordancia con la biopsia hepática, presenta. O procedimento de elastografia em tempo real foi realizado por dois operadores independentes, cegos entre si e para o resultado da biópsia hepática. Resumen. La fibrosis es un destino donde convergen variados trastornos hepáticos. Al tratarse de un proceso dinámico y reversible.

Value of two non-invasive methods to detect progression of fibrosis among HCV carriers with normal aminotranderases. Elastogrwfia clinical spectrum of disease. However, there are few studies evaluating its usefulness in the differential diagnosis of solid liver lesions.

Elastografía hepática guiada por ultrasonografía endoscópica

heptaica Imaging of the elasticity properties of tissue-a review. A year-old woman with no previous medical history, except a lumbar vertebra broken at the age of 35, was first admitted because of abdominal pain in the right hypochondria for the last few weeks, together with anorexia and weight loss of 6 kg.

Ultrasound Med Biol ; In Pathology of the liver.

Median liver stiffness was Diagnosis of cirrhosis and its complication by transient elastography Fibroscan: A non invasive method to evaluate fibrosis in chronic HCV patients.

University Hospital of Santiago de Compostela. A prospective controlled study abstract. The probe is pressed against the wall with only the pressure needed for an optimal and stable B-mode image at 7. This is possible due to the proximity of the liver mainly left liver lobe to the gastric and duodenal wall.


Liver stiffness measurement selects patients with cirrhosis at risk of bearing large oesophageal varices. Elasyografia ultrasound elastography – a new imaging technique for the hspatica of tissue elasticity distribution.

The technology is based on the detection of small structure deformations within the B-mode image as caused by compression, so that strain is smaller hepaticq hard tissue versus soft tissue. Chawla Y, Santa M, R. Evaluation of fibrosis regression using fibroscan in HCV responder patients.

Saftoiu A, Vilman P. During EUS we performed an elastographic evaluation of the solid liver lesion, and obtained a heterogeneous blue-predominant pattern with slight green areas and red lines resulting in a geographic appearance characteristic of malignant tumors ; the mass was clearly differentiated hepatcia normal tissue Fig.

Histological assessement of hepatic iron stores.

Ultrasound in Med and Biol. Prediction of liver fibrosis in non-alcoholic steatohepatitis NASH: The median in 25 controls was 4. In conclusion, liver EUS-guided elastography could be a useful tool in the evaluation of some patients with solid liver tumors. Discussion Transient liver elastography is mainly used for the quantification of liver fibrosis.

Thieme E-Journals – Revista Argentina de Radiología / Argentinian Journal of Radiology / Abstract

Formulation and application of a numerical scoring system for assessing histological activity in assymptomatic chronic active hepatitis. Endoscopic ultrasound EUS elastography of the liver. In order to obviate hepatcia bias related to the subjective interpretation of the color map, a quantitative analysis is possible with second-generation elastogragphy.


Noninvasive assessment of liver fibrosis by measurement of stiffness in patients with chronic hepatitis C.

A helical CT scan identified an enlarged choledocus with an associated dilatation of the intrahepatic biliary tree. Finally, the patient underwent an endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography that confirmed the presence of a 2-cm filiform stenosis in the middle portion of the common bile duct Fig.

Transient liver elastography is mainly used for the quantification of liver fibrosis.
