The accuracy of ultrasonography has been increased in last decades by techniques able to evaluate mechanical strain properties of tissues. This innovative and not invasive method of analyzing tissue stiffness immediately received an increasing interest during the last years owing to a revolutionary approach of studying diffuse and focal diseases, thus providing a new important diagnostic tool for making diagnosis. Tissue stiffness has ever been evaluated by clinicians and surgeons through physical palpation to detect pathological conditions.
