Ioan Sporea and Roxana Şirli
Scientific papers regarding ultrasound based elastographic techniques have
been published in great numbers since new elastographic methods are constantly
appearing in the market. Thus it is mandatory that professional societies and experts in
the field should try to organize the available data in order to assess the clinical
usefulness of elastography. In this regard, guidelines were issued by national and
international ultrasound societies, as well as by other professional societies. These
guidelines are presented in this chapter.
