ShearWave Elastography (SWE)TM is an ultrasound-based elastography technique that has the ability to map and measure liver stiffness1. It has been implemented on a complete ultrasound imaging system, the Aixplorer®, and therefore might address the limitations of conventional US imaging to characterize liver fibrosis. This modality could also become part of the routine examination of liver nodules (e.g. HCC) in cirrhotic contexts.

This White Paper is a review of the clinical results that have been reported in the literature up to September 2013 and it provides an interpretation of these reports.
