Ultrasound Elastography has been shown to be an accurate non-invasive method of assessing the progression of liver disease by depicting the level of fibrotic change. In the 850, Hitachi has combined the two methods of Elastography (strain and shearwave) into a single liver Elastography exam. This fast examination is able to produce the quantitative data provided by Shearwave Elastography while also exploiting Strain Elastography’s unique advantages in patients with inflammation, fatty replacement, and ascites. The combination provides a comprehensive picture of liver health including indices that reflect
Multi-modality Image Fusion with Real-time Virtual Sonography
Hitachi continues to expand its RVS fusion capabilities with a new suite of visualization and efficiency tools to enhance its ability support a variety of interventional procedures.
Contrast Harmonic Imaging
With multiple acquisition modes and analytical tools like Inflow Time Mapping, which displays a color-coded graphical representation of enhancement and wash-out times, the 850 positions users to increase utilization of a technique that has been adopted throughout the rest of the world.
