Instruct patient to breath normally and then to momentarily stop breathing during acquisition. Obtain 10 measurements at same site Multiple measurements to ensure the median value is reliable. Fewer than 10 measurements can be made (at least 5); however, the IQR /Median ratio should be within the recommended range. Maintain an Interquartile Range (IQR)/ Indicates variability of measurements lie within reasonable Median ratio of m/s, of ≤ 0.3 for values variability range. The recommended quality control measure for in kilopascals and ≤ 0.15 for values in adequate technical quality. The IQR/Median ratio for elasticity in meters per second units of kPa will be twice the IQR/Median ratio for shear wave velocity in units of m/s as the conversion of m/s to kPa is nonlinear. 1 Barr, RG, et al.
