Offering an exceptional, easy-to-use and complete solution for liver disease assessment, treatment planning and monitoring, the Philips ultimate liver solution for liver assessment is available across a wide range of PureWave transducers to accommodate different body habitus. The quantifiable outcomes from the latest addition: liver fat quantification and shear wave elastography allow radiologists and hepatologists to complete screening, diagnosis and management with ultrasound only. The solution provides tools that maintain excellent detail resolution and Doppler sensitivity, and allows for high performance in elastography, quantification of liver fat, 3D/4D and contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS), even in technically difficult-to-scan patients.
The solution includes quantitative tools across the entire liver disease management spectrum.
- The Liver Fat Quantification solution is designed to assess liver disease management using ultrasound. Attenuation measurement correlates with the amount of fat content in the liver. Hepatorenal Index compares the relative brightness of the liver with the kidney. Both tools can be included in routine abdominal imaging and provide a rapid, non-invasive quantitative measure that correlates with fat. This allows for a more complete liver assessment and can be used to screen patients for NAFLD/NASH and for surveillance of patients on therapy.
- ElastQ imaging is a real-time, large region of interest, colour-coded quantitative assessment of tissue stiffness. Clinicians can easily assess liver tissue stiffness using real-time feedback and make quantitative measurements with multiple sample points.
- Ultrasound contrast agents can transform the role of ultrasound in the liver, allowing the user to study the enhancement patterns of suspicious liver lesions in real time for fast, confident diagnosis.
