Quantitative ultrasound can help detect hepatic steatosis
By Erik L. Ridley, AuntMinnie.com staff writer
“A quantitative ultrasound technique can be highly sensitive for detecting hepatic steatosis. Researchers have found that ultrasound-derived fat projection yielded 94.1 percent sensitivity in the area of detection for MRI which exceeds a commonly used threshold for clinically hepatic steatosis. In their study the researchers evaluated the new methods developed by ultrasound vendors for detecting and quantifying hepatic steatosis on ultrasound.”
This research is creating innovations in improving treatments for those with hepatic steatosis creating more efficient results.
What are your thoughts on this research? Do you think quantitative ultrasounds are an efficient way to detect hepatic steatosis as they a highly sensitivity result?
