Abstract
A meta-analysis was performed to assess the accuracies of shear wave elastography (SWE) and compare SWE with other elastography technology in predicting significant fibrosis (stage F2-F4) and cirrhosis (stage F4). Electronic and manual bibliographic searches until June 2014 were used. A bivariate binomial model was used to combine the sensitivity, specificity and the area under summary receiver operating characteristic (AUC) curve and their 95% confidence intervals (95% CI) were derived to indicate the diagnostic accuracy of imaging modalities. In total, eight studies with 1632 patients were included. The sensitivity, specificity, and AUC (with 95% CIs) of SWE were 0.85 (0.81-0.89), 0.85 (0.80-0.88), and 0.92 (0.89-0.94) for significant fibrosis, respectively; 0.88 (0.83-0.92), 0.90 (0.87-0.93), and 0.96 (0.94-0.97) for cirrhosis, respectively. The mean optimal cut-off value of liver stiffness assessed by SWE for the detection of significant fibrosis and cirrhosis was 7.4?0.40 kPa (median 7.2 kPa) and 10.9?0.70 kPa (median 10.7 kPa). Thus, SWE is reliable for staging hepatic fibrosis, with a high combination of sensitivity and specificity.
Biography
Quanyuan Shan has completed her MD at the age of 26 years from Sun Yat-Sen University. She is now working in department of Medical Ultrasound of First Affiliated Hospital and Institute of Diagnostic and Interventional Ultrasound of Sun Yat-Sen University. As a doctor of ultrasonography she has used a great deal of ultrasonic machines, and has a deep understanding of SWE, which has emerged as a novel technological development in the field of elastography and is based on shear waves integrated into a conventional ultrasound device.
