Salah Nouran , Madkour Sherihane , Soliman Khaled

Background: Little is known about the pancreatic changes during type 1diabetes (T1D) progression. Recently shear wave elastography (SWE) has emerged as a tool of pancreatic stiffness assessment in chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer with few studies assessing it in diabetes.
