What SWE adds to traditional ultrasound scan? Elastography offers enhanced diagnostic capabilities beyond traditional ultrasound by measuring tissue stiffness, crucial for identifying diseases like liver fibrosis or helping better differentiation between malignant and benign tumors. It provides quantitative data, allowing for early disease detection and monitoring treatment effects. Unlike traditional ultrasound, which only visualizes tissue structures, elastography adds functional information, improving accuracy in distinguishing between benign and malignant lesions. This non-invasive, painless technique improves patient comfort and reduces the need for biopsies, offering a safer, more informative diagnostic tool.
