A preliminary study of acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) quantification for the assessment of skin in diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis (dSSc).

 

ARFI quantification is feasible and reliable for assessing the skin involvement in dcSSc and may be a valuable adjunct to skin evaluation in patients with SSc. PubMed, J Rheumatol, 2015 Mar;42(3):449-55. (Also see Skin Fibrosis)
