THED research

THED research - Quantifying pathological and physiological changes through deep palpation

THED research is a highly innovative research platform for establishing the MRI-validated method time-harmonic elastography (THE) as an ultrasound imaging modality. THED research offers quantitative analysis of shear wave speed up to a penetration depth of 13 cm, which allows for shear wave propagation beyond ascites and the examination of obese patients.

THED research is a development of the Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin and GAMPT mbH in Merseburg/Germany. This video gives an introduction of the system and its application to the liver.

Please contact Prof. Dr. Ingolf Sack at Charité Berlin for scientific questions and Dr. Anton Schlesinger at GAMPT mbH for acquisition and support.
