Acoustic radiation force impulse imaging: normal values of spleen stiffness in healthy children

Published inPediatric Radiology, vol. 51, no. 10, p. 1873-1878

Abstract

Acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) imaging is a noninvasive ultrasound elastography technique for evaluating tissue stiffness. The association of liver and spleen stiffness provides additional information in the assessment of portal hypertension. The technique and normal values of spleen stiffness by point shear wave elastography (p-SWE) in pediatrics have not been well documented.
