    • Thyroid round tableDr. Antonio Pio Masciotra Campobasso
    • THE HISTORY OF SONO-ELASTOGRAPHY
    • Strain Shear wave
    • STRAIN with different compressionsInhomogeneous elasticity Uniform low elasticity
    • SHEAR WAVENormal gland 8.29 kPa Normal gland 1.66 m/secNodule 8.46 kPa Nodule 1.68 m/sec
    • Strain Shear wave
    • Soft or Hard ? STRAIN SHEAR WAVEMainly ‘soft’ thyroid nodule Mainly ‘hard’ thyroid nodule
    • Hard or Soft?Shear wave Shear wave kPa 65.87 3.69 m/sec
    • Are our measurements really indicative of tissue elasticity values?QA sono-elasticitography phantom
    • We need to have standards of unity measures BACKGROUND ELASTICITY• Material : Zerdine® • Background: 25 kPa• Speed of sound : 1545 m/s 10 m/s • Lesion Type I: 08 kPa• Attenuation Coefficient : 0.50 dB/cm-MHz • Lesion Type II: 14 kPa • Lesion Type III: 45 kPa LESIONI • Lesion Type IV: 80 kPa• Material : Zerdine®• Attenuation Coefficient : 0.50 dB/cm-MHz
    • Different reference values in quantification and staging of hepatic fibrosis
    • Aims of elastographyCorrect tissue elasticity quantificationIdentification of ‘cut off’ elasticity values for correct diagnosis of diffuse and focal diseases
    • SO WE NEED TO HAVE STANDARDS BOTH IN TECHNIQUES OFACQUISITION AND IN THE MEASUREMENTS
    • Thanks to my Technicians Mr. Nicolino Spina and Mrs. Carmela Leccese By Dr. Antonio Pio Masciotra Campobasso-Molise- Italy To ZAPRAD
