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. T he 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.

Public Comment for Version 1.0 of the Profile, QIBA US Measurement of Shear Wave Speed for Estimation of Liver Fibrosis, closed December 18, 2019.
