"An AIUM member responds: There is no doubt that shear-wave elastography will be the future of elastography in the musculoskeletal (MSK) system. The strain elastography is too user dependent to be of real value in the long run. We have not pursued…"

Anyone using the Supersonic Aixplorer for their general MSK diagnostic scanning and procedures -- nerves, spine, tendons, ligs, etc ... in addition to its eleastrography strength ?How does the general image quality compare to an IU-22 or GE E9/S8 ?  How is this company as a brand and for support ? Any issues with machine breakdown prematurely ?My IU-22 a cart is dying and I need a new intermediate to high end machine for my MSK practice of diagnostic & procedures anywhere in body, but I…See More

"Comments from other AIUM members Tendons are quite stiff and have high shear wave propagation speed. Therefore, it is important to have high frame-rate imaging platform for optimal Shear wave imaging performance. I think the iU22 may not be optimal…"

"I was in the same situation in 2015, we own an IU22 and wanted to do elastography on rodents which would require a higher frequency than available for the IU22.  We ended up choosing a Supersonic Imagine system that goes up to 15MHz (they also…"

Looking for any guidance on right machine for elastography research on tendons, muslce & fascia

HiI currently own an a-cart IU-22, but am looking to update to something that can handle elastography. I have read a bit on benefits and issues of strain vs shear wave, and though I understand the basics, not sure which is really best from clinical standpoint.My cheapest upgrade path is to a g-cart IU-22. But from what I read, the IU-22 supports strain with linear probes, and shear with only a curvilinear.  Also read there are a lot of differences between companies on how they actually process…See More
