Project Snapshot - Shear Wave Speed (SWS)

An Ultrasound Quantitative Biomarker Planning Meeting was held on Thursday, March 29, 2012 at the 2012 American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) Annual Convention, in Phoenix, AZ. The purpose of this meeting was to plan an effort by the biomedical ultrasound community to create and support implementation of a QIBA Profile for a quantitative biomarker in ultrasound imaging. Shear Wave Speed was selected as the qualifying biomarker at this meeting and planning efforts continue.

Profile Development

Status - Cleaning up Profile to approve/publish for Public Comment in early 2017
