原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Background(#br)Real-time sonoelastography is currently used for the characterization of superficial solid lesions such as thyroid and breast masses. This study evaluates the usefulness of percutaneous sonoelastography for the characterization of solid focal liver lesions.(#br)Methods(#br)30 out of 43 patients with 38 known liver lesions were included in a prospective, diagnostic study. Qualitative analysis (pattern of deformation, elasticity type of liver tumour) and semi-quantitative measurements (strain ratio, hardness percentage, histogram) were evaluated. Sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive values were calculated and the area under the receiver operating characteristics curve was constructed.(#br)Results(#br)Patterns A and C-D are specific of benign...
