All you need to know to master Elastography

This course took place on 19 September 2019 in The Learning Academy in Singapore. The course has been recorded and can be purchased by registering via this page until 31 December 2019. Participants of this course had the opportunity to engage in elaborate and passionate talks about Elastography for breast and liver applications. Dr Barr has illustrated his talks by sharing clinical cases, supported by hands-on sessions and sharing valuable tips and tricks. Tissue stiffness has long provided important information about presence or absence of disease. Physicians have used palpation for centuries, noting that abnormal tissue is often more stiff than healthy tissue. Elastography is a way to visualize, record and document tissue stiffness parameters.
