      Color-coded SMI demonstrates flow and greyscale information with high temporal and spatial resolution simultaneously.




      • The principle behind SMI

      Traditional color Doppler imaging (left) removes clutter from the images by suppressing low velocity components, resulting in a loss of flow in tiny vessels. SMI (left) separates flow from overlaying tissue motion effectively, while preserving even the subtlest low-flow components with unmatched detail and definition.

      • The principle behind shear wave elastography

      Shear waves are generated inside the human body by means of an ultrasonic burst (up). Depending on tissue stiffness, shear waves travel at varying speed, but generally very slowly through the human body. Their propagation can be followed and visualized using conventional ultrasound imaging techniques (down). The propagation speed of the shear waves directly correlates with tissue stiffness.
