The elastography takes about 30 to 60 minutes.
Water intake affects liver stiffness and hemodynamics. No water intake at least one hour prior to liver ultrasound elastography and Doppler sonography is recommended.
Abdominal ultrasound with elastography is a non-invasive technique used in ultrasound to determine fibrosis or stiffness of liver tissue.
Depending on the level and scope of the intervention, it can cost between INR 2000 and INR 10000.
Liver elastography involves the use of a surface ultrasound probe that emits a low-frequency pulse, hence it is completely painless.
