Delineation of microwave ablated hepatocellular carcinoma tumor regions using electrode displacement elastography

2017 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium (IUS), 2017

An effective imaging modality to delineate the ablated region after microwave ablation (MWA) therapy is crucial to yield promising treatment outcomes. Ultrasound B mode imaging is widely used to guide the ablation needle. However, the image quality suffers from relatively low imaging contrast due to the similar echogenicity between the ablated and surrounding liver tissue. In this study, we applied ...

Therefore, the shear speed may be a sensitive method to determine muscle fiber orientation in vivo. The purpose of this study is to develop a reproducible method to determine anisotropy in muscle fibers using Shear Wave Elastography (SWE). This technique was ...

  • Delineation of microwave ablated hepatocellular carcinoma tumor regions using electrode displacement elastography

    An effective imaging modality to delineate the ablated region after microwave ablation (MWA) therapy is crucial to yield promising treatment outcomes. Ultrasound B mode imaging is widely used to guide the ablation needle. However, the image quality suffers from relatively low imaging contrast due to the similar echogenicity between the ablated and surrounding liver tissue. In this study, we applied a quasi-static ultrasound elastography technique, referred to as electrode displacement elastography (EDE), to delineate the thermally ablated regions for patients diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) treated with MWA procedures.

  • Principal strain vascular elastography using compounded plane wave imaging

    Principal strain imaging could enhance the diagnostic performance of vascular elastography, but conventional ultrasound system cannot measure lateral displacements precisely, information needed to compute principal strain. The goal of this study is to investigate the feasibility of using compounded plane wave imaging to visualize principal strain within the carotid artery. To compare the quality of principal strain relative to radial and circumferential (polar) strain elastogram, we performed a simulation study. We synthesized radio-frequency (RF) echo frames of homogeneous and heterogeneous vessels. The simulated ultrasound scanner acquired plane wave images from transmission angles of -14 to 14 in steps of 2 using a linear transducer array operating at 5. The accuracy of principal and polar strains were comparable (both varied between 7 % to 12 %), but principal strain offered considerably higher elastographic contrast-to-noise ratio (4 - 14 dB). The results also revealed that the elastographic contrast-to-noise ratios of principal strain elastograms were significantly larger than those of polar (p <; 0.05). The results suggest that compounding plane wave vascular elastography can produce useful principal strain elastograms.

  • Characterization of local muscle fiber anisotropy using shear wave elastography in patients with chronic myofascial pain

    Previous studies have reported that shear wave speed along muscle fibers is distinct from the speed across the fibers. Therefore, the shear speed may be a sensitive method to determine muscle fiber orientation in vivo. The purpose of this study is to develop a reproducible method to determine anisotropy in muscle fibers using Shear Wave Elastography (SWE). This technique was used to study myofascial trigger points (MTrPs) which are palpable tender nodules found in skeletal muscle. MTrPs are a characteristic finding in myofascial pain syndrome (MPS), a widely prevalent chronic pain condition. The relationship between MTrPs and the pathophysiology of MPS is still largely unknown. We hypothesized that muscle containing MTrPs have heterogeneous fiber orientation within the affected zone and surrounding areas compared to normal muscle.

  • B-mode subwavelength vibration imaging

    Shear wave elastography relies on acoustic radiation force to generate shear wave vibration. In magnetomotive ultrasound (MMUS), magnetic excitation along with magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) induces magneto-vibration. Both types of tissue vibrations are in the range of few micrometers and not observable in conventional B-mode imaging. Computationally intensive sub-wavelength motion tracking is required to visualize the shear wave propagation for shear wave speed estimation and to localize magneto-vibration sources for mapping MNP distribution. In this study, we propose a novel vibration visualization technique - B-mode subwavelength vibration (B-SV) imaging, which can reveal such invisible vibrations in B-mode images without the need of sub-wavelength motion estimation. Simulations and MMUS experimental data (not shown here) are used to verify the proposed technique. From the results it is easy to locate the vibration source and visualize the shear wave in B-mode images, using the proposed B-SV imaging technique. The proposed B-SV imaging technique provides straightforward B-mode visualization of the originally invisible vibrations. It is expected that the proposed B-SV imaging would be beneficial to the shear wave elastography and MMUS.

  • Simulation, design and implementation of external mechanical vibration for shear wave elastography imaging

    Ultrasound shear wave elastography (SWE) imaging is commercially available on expensive systems. ARF-based shear wave generation requires complex electronics and may induce thermal stress to the tissue. There is need and interest to develop external mechanical vibration (EMV) as a low-cost approach to generate shear waves. Commercial development of mechanical vibration using a single-element transducer has been successful but lacks 2D imaging as guidance. Here we present the simulation, design and implementation of a new way of performing external mechanical vibration that could be adopted by commercial ultrasound probes for SWE imaging.

  • A model-free approach to probe motion artifacts suppression for in vivo imaging with probe oscillation shear wave elastography (PROSE)

    Probe oscillation shear wave elastography (PROSE) can achieve high frame-rate two-dimensional (2D) shear wave elastography by utilizing a continuously vibrating ultrasound probe to simultaneously generate and detect shear waves (Mellema, IEEE TMI 0278-0062). Strategically detecting when the probe returns to the same physical location allowed the shear waves to be decoupled from probe motion artifacts; however, complicated wave patterns observed when imaging in vivo liver prevented full suppression of these artifacts. This work proposes Empirical Mode Decomposition (EMD) as a model-free approach to decouple probe motion artifacts from the shear wave signal.

  • Improved delineation rate of thermally ablated liver tumors with electrode displacement elastography compared to commercial acoustic radiation force impulse imaging

    Ultrasound elastography is an effective imaging modality to delineate thermally ablated regions after ablative liver tumor treatments. The image contrast is based on the difference in the Young's modulus of local tissue. In this work, we compared our previously introduced electrode displacement elastography (EDE) with a commercially available acoustic radiation force impulse imaging (ARFI) technique, for delineating the post ablation regions.

  • Ultrafast myocardial elastography using coherent compounding of diverging waves during simulated exercise

    Objective myocardial deformation assessment during exercise could help the clinician to better diagnose myocardial ischemia. However, the use of conventional focus echocardiography is compromised at increased heart rates due to its limited lateral view field and frame rate. Ultrafast echocardiography using coherent compounding of diverging waves improves temporal resolution while maintaining a large view field (Jonahan, IEEE TMI, 2016) and could be a valuable alternative during exercise. This study aimed to demonstrate that ultrafast echocardiography combined with a Lagrangian speckle model estimator (LSME) can offer high-quality myocardial strain measurements at increased heart rate.

  • Strain and strain rate generated by shear wave elastography in ex vivo porcine aortas

    In shear wave elastography (SWE), acoustic radiation forces (ARF) are employed to generate shear waves within the tissue. Although the transmitted pulses are longer than those in conventional clinical ultrasound, they typically obey the mechanical and thermal regulatory limits. In arterial applications, specific safety concerns may arise, as ARF-induced stresses and strain rates could potentially affect the arterial wall. A previous simulation study (Doherty et al., J Biomech, 2013 Jan; 46(1):83-90) showed that stresses imposed by the ARF used in SWE are orders of magnitude lower than those caused by blood pressure. ARF-induced strain rates have not been investigated yet, therefore the aim of this study was to assess such strain rates in an ex vivo setup.

  • Ultrasound Elastography Utilizing Pre-Beam-Formed Data

    Herein, a novel algorithm is proposed for strain estimation in free-hand palpation quasi-static ultrasound elastography. In all previously proposed methods for strain estimation, post-beam-formed ultrasound Radio-Frequency (RF) data have been utilized. However, we propose to exploit pre-beam-formed RF data (often called channel data) for displacement estimation in ultrasound elastography in this paper. Our novel technique builds on our recently proposed GLobal Ultrasound Elastography (GLUE) method, a regularized optimization-based approach for displacement estimation. Here, we propose Channel data based GLUE (CGLUE), which uses channel data instead of the post- beam-formed RF data. Phantom experiments show that considering channel data improves the displacement estimation results substantially.
