Tissue Strain Analytics from Siemens Ultrasound
Tissue Strain Analytics could represent the most important development in ultrasound technology since the advent of Doppler imaging. Siemens’ comprehensive suite of Tissue Strain applications provides a new dimension of diagnostic information through either qualitative assessment or quantitative measurement of the mechanical stiffness of tissue.
A new dimension of diagnostic information
Tissue strain analytics complements conventional ultrasound exams by providing an extra dimension of information--mechanical stiffness. This additional information can be combined with anatomical (B-mode) as well as vascular (Doppler) information such that the actual diagnosis is contained by the intersection of three dimensions of information.
Method availability is subject to local regulatory requirements and therefore varies by country.
