Acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) elastography of adrenal glands in healthy adult dogs

Abstract: To describe the ARFI elastography in the evaluation of the adrenal glands in adult dogs, to evaluate the stiffness of adrenal parenchyma and to determine the qualitative and quantitative standards of the ARFI technique, which have not yet been described in veterinary medicine. Sixty adrenal glands from thirty healthy adult dogs were evaluated by B-mode and qualitative and quantitative ARFI elastography to assess the stiffness of healthy parenchyma and to determine the quality and quantity (shear velocity) stan… Show more

“…The chosen breed (Beagle) can be considered small-sized, as demonstrated by the average weight of Beagles (mean = 8.5±3.19kg) and body condition score of 6 (on a scale of 1 to 9) in the study by Fernandez et al (2017). However, individual specimens may exceed the weight limit of 10 kg (small size), a category established in the study by Soulsby et al (2015).…”

“…In the qualitative, images with specific focus, white areas (more elastic, soft, and deformable and less rigid tissue) and dark areas (more rigid, harder, and non-deformable) were evaluated. In the qualitative stage, the absolute speed capture function was activated and the caliper was positioned in the area of interest of the adrenals (interest box dimensions were 10 mm × 10 mm); six measurements in each portion of the left and right adrenal glands (body, caudal and cranial pole) were measured (depth between 1.3 and 3.1 cm) to determine the sheer velocities (means and standard deviations [SD]), following what was reported by Fernandez et al (2017).…”

“…With the development of novel elastographic techniques, numerous studies have been performed on the use of elastography to assess muscle, tendon and thyroid disorders as well as neoplastic disorders (Bhatia et al 2012). In veterinary medicine, several studies have looked into the clinical application of elastography (Kallel et al 1999, Fernandez et al 2017, Glińska--Suchocka et al 2017). The results of these studies indicate that elastography may be used in the diagnosis of mammary gland, testicular, hepatic, adrenal and prostate lesions.…”
