Virtual Touch Quantification

Virtual Touch Quantification

Virtual Touch™ tissue quantification* is a real-time measurement technique that utilizes Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse (ARFI) imaging technology to gently displace tissue for quantitative evaluation of tissue stiffness properties. A complete package for Tissue Strain Analytics includes Virtual Touch Tissue Imaging, Virtual Touch™ Tissue Quantification* and eSie Touch™ elasticity imaging.

Benefits

  • Provides accurate measurements of tissue stiffness, including relative stiffness calculation between normal and abnormal tissues
  • Can assist to highlight changes in tissue stiffness due to liver fibrosis

Applications

  • Liver
  • Breast
  • Thyroid
  • Abdominal

Additional Information
Siemens’ second generation implementation ARFI technology has even greater sensitivity and accuracy. With the addition of the 9L4 linear transducer, Virtual Touch™ HD* is now optimized for small parts, including breast and thyroid as well as abdominal imaging.
