Multiparametric ultrasound assessment of diffuse liver disease


Canon Medical Systems


Tuesday 31st January
12:30 - 13:30

Sheikh Maktoum Hall A




Prevalence of diffuse liver disease is increasing globally and is now a worldwide problem. In addition to alcohol abuse or chronic hepatitis, other causes such as metabolic syndrome or liver-related conditions are emerging. The wide variety of these causes and their impact on the liver require the combination of conventional ultrasound with dedicated techniques to deliver appropriate staging of the patient. This workshop will review the use and diagnostic performance of techniques such as elastography for fibrosis or attenuation imaging for steatosis, including the last updates.

Learning objectives


  • Get practical tips from the examples discussed to increase your diagnostic confidence.
  • We will learn how to evaluate multiple aspects of diffuse liver disease using ultrasound imaging techniques on Canon Medical devices.
