Abstract

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.
