Titel:
ARFI-based tissue elasticity quantification in comparison to histology for the diagnosis of renal transplant fibrosis. 
Abstract:
Until recently clinical diagnosis of chronic renal allograft dysfunction could only be established invasively by renal biopsy. Given the risks of that procedure, a non-invasive, diagnostic test would be very advantageous. Novel ultrasound-based elasticity tools, using "Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse (ARFI)" technology are now available. Previously this technique has been utilised to quantify liver fibrosis. First results of these studies are promising. The purpose of our study was to investiga...    »
