A novel evaluation of density differences in subcutaneous abdominal adipose tissue layers in pregnancy using elastography

Kennedy, N.J.; Quinton, A.E.; Peek, Michael; Robledo, Kristy P; Benzie, R; Nanan, Ralph K. H.


Introduction: Chronic inflammation leads to adipose tissue (AT) fibrosis through excessive accumulation of extracellular matrix proteins. An increasing degree of fibrosis in AT is associated with increasing body mass index (BMI) and insulin resistance. Anecdotally AT has been observed to vary with ease of ultrasound penetration on medical examinations. Ultrasound strain elastography (SE) is a useful tool in assessing fibrosis in liver disease but has not previously been used to assess AT...[Show more]
