Strain elastography as used in EUS (EUS-real-time tissue elastography [RTE]) is a qualitative technique and provides information on the relative stiffness between one tissue and another. This article reviews the principles, technique, and interpretation of EUS-RTE in various organs. It includes information on how to optimize the technique as well as a discussion on pitfalls and artifacts. We also refer to the article describing RTE using conventional ultrasound transducers.
