New opportunities in Ultrasonography using Elastography

On 8th December 2017 The Baltic Academy of Radiology in cooperation with Toshiba Medical Europe, A.Medical and Medical Center ARS organized an elastography workshop for Latvian radiologists to introduce the latest ultrasonography possibilities, which significantly improve the diagnostic accuracy in assessing tissue elasticity.

Leading Latvian radiologists DM Maija RADZINA (The Baltic Academy of Radiology, Medical Center ARS), Dr. Kaspars Stepanovs (VC4), Wesam Ibrahim (Toshiba Medical Systems) read lectures to Latvian radiologists and ultrasonography specialists on the modern elastography diagnostic possibilities, which can be used in USG examinations of liver chronic diseases, breast and thyroid nodules, as well as conducted practical training using the advanced Toshiba Aplio  i800 ultrasonography equipment, which ensures top-quality diagnostic opportunities of sonoelastography, which can be used as a method complementary to USG examinations to specify diffuse changes in the liver or the nature of formations in superficial tissues.
