Quantitative assessment of scleroderma using ultrasound surface wave elastography

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Skin stiffening is an early biomarker of many systemic sclerosis or fibrosis diseases. The Modified Rodnan Skin Score (MRSS) is considered the gold standard measurement in the majority of clinical studies of scleroderma or systemic sclerosis (SSc). However, the MRSS is a subjective palpation method. We have developed a noninvasive ultrasound surface wave elastography (USWE) technique for measuring skin elastic properties. The purpose of this abstract is to demonstrate the clinical use of USWE for assessing patients with SSc.
