Ultrasound Elastography for Hand Soft Tissue Assessment.
Giambini H, An KN.
Hand clinics. 2022; 38(1): 119-128

Abstract

Over the past decade, ultrasound elastography has emerged as a new technique for measuring soft tissue properties. Real-time, noninvasive, and quantitative evaluations of tissue stiffness have improved and aid in the assessment of normal and pathological conditions. Specifically, its use has substantially increased in the evaluation of muscle, tendon, and ligament properties. In this review, the authors describe the principles of elastography and present different techniques including strain elastography and shear-wave elastography; discuss their applications for assessing soft tissues in the hand before, during, and postsurgeries; present the strengths and limitations of their measurement capabilities; and describe directions for future research.
