Siemens Virtual Touch IQ Imaging
#395 Released On : Jul 14, 2014 | Time : 2 min
Part 1
Virtual Touch IQ combines imaging and quantification in a single image and can be complimentary to information obtained from eSie Touch elasticity imaging.Designed to focus on a user-defined region of interest (ROI) Virtual Touch IQ applies push pulses sequentially across the ROI which slightly compress tissue.This causes lateral sound waves or shear waves to transmit across the ROI. A series of ultrasound detection pulses follow immediately in a quick push pulse detect pulse sequence. Velocities are then calculated for each area within the ROI and exceptionalresolution providing more clinical data to support a better diagnosis.

Objective :
Virtual Touch IQ is the third generation of Siemens technology for Elasticity Imaging, adding quantification to Virtual Touch imaging. X

Siemens eSie Touch Elasticity Imaging
#386 Released On : Jun 02, 2014 | Time : 40 min
Part 1
This brief video provides an introduction to eSie Touch Elasticity Imaging, one of the Siemens technologies for Tissue Strain Analytics.
Read More
Objective :
eSie Touch Elasticity Imaging provides a visual assessment of tissue stiffness and can, for example, allow a subtle lesion in soft tissue to be more clearly visualized and assessed. The stiffness or elasticity of different tissue types varies. When a uniform stress is applied each will deform differently and the resulting mapping of these different degrees of deformation clearly illustrates relative tissue stiffness. to use eSie Touch simply place a region of interest box on the desired area then activate the technology. The B-mode image will then display side-by-side with the elastogram. Using real-time correlation methods the system continuously estimates the degree of tissue deformation and displays the relative stiffness on either a gray-scale or colorized elasticity image. X
