Introduction: Elastography is a noninvasive imaging technique based on estimation of the tissue flexibility. There are two methods of elastography: Static Elastography and Shear Wave Elastography. Scale of deformation under pressure is presented as a colourful map – elastogram, where red colour signify soft tissues, green colour signify middle tough tissues and blue colour signify tough tissues. Analysis of elastograms enable us to present results as ROI1/ROI2 index. In a...
