Siemens Virtual Touch IQ Imaging
#395 Released On : Jul 14, 2014 | Time : 2 min
Part 1
Virtual Touch IQ is the third generation of Siemens ARFI technology for Elasticity Imaging, adding quantification to Virtual Touch imaging.
Read More
Objective :
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. X

Siemens Virtual Touch Quantification
#399 Released On : Aug 18, 2014 | Time : 1 min
Part 1
This brief video provides an overview of Siemens Virtual Touch Quantification
Read More
Objective :
Virtual TouchTM Quantification provides a quantitative assessment of tissue stiffness through measurement of shear wave speed. Shear waves are generated by displacement of tissue and attenuate approximately 10,000 times more rapidly than conventional ultrasound waves. To perform Virtual Touch Quantification a small region of interest or ROI is placed at the desired assessment location. A standard transducer is used to apply an ultrasound push pulse which runs alongside the ROI. This slightly compresses the tissue and as a result sound waves called shear waves are naturally propagated perpendicular to the push pulse throughout the tissue including through the ROI. Multiple detection pulses are sent through the ROI, measuring the speed of the shear waves by calculating the time required for each shear wave to reach its peak. Speed correlates to the tissue stiffness. The quantitative result is displayed in meters per second instantly along with the depth of the ROI. X
