Abstract

Ultrasound elastography has become available in everyday practice, allowing direct measurement of tissue elasticity with important and expanding clinical applications. Several studies that have evaluated pathological and non-pathological tissues have demonstrated that ultrasound elastography can actually improve the diagnostic accuracy of the underlying disease process by detecting differences in their elasticity. Ocular and periocular tissues can also be characterized by their elastic properties. In this context, a comprehensive review of literature on ultrasound elastography as well as its current applications in Ophthalmology is presented.

Keywords: Ultrasound elastography, strain elastography, shear wave elastography, ocular tissues, periocular tissues, imaging.
