Acoustic structure quantification (ASQ) analysis images obtained from a patient with portal hypertension, right lobe of liver. a Histogram display of the right lobe; b the corresponding ASQ curve for the difference ratio (Cm²). The red curve represents the value of Cm² in the region of interest; higher inhomogeneous inconsistent values are indicated by the blue curve

Background: Acoustic structure quantification (ASQ) has been applied to evaluate liver histologic changes by analyzing the speckle pattern seen on B-mode ultrasound. We aimed to assess the severity of portal hypertension (PHT) through hepatic ultrasonography. Methods: Sixty patients diagnosed with PHT and underwent surgical treatment with portos...

Background Portal vein thrombus (PVT) in cirrhotic patients is associated with worsening portal hypertension, leads to increased complexity of necessary interventions such as transjugular liver portosystemic shunt or liver transplantation, and is associated with worse outcomes after liver transplantation. Additionally, there are no established cons...
