Does Supersonic Shear Wave Elastography Help Differentiate Biliary Atresia from Other Causes of Cholestatic Hepatitis in Infants Less than 90 Days Old? Compared with Grey-Scale US

Figure 9

Biliary atresia in a 60-days-old girl. (a) The arrow points to the triangular cord sign and its thickness was 3.9 mm. (b) The arrow points to the abnormal gall bladder, small in size, and irregularly shaped. (c) The SWE image shows Young’s modulus value of 13.7 kPa and SD of 0.9 kPa. (d) The quality control SWE images show that the shear wave propagation curve was regular.
