The purpose of this study is to investigate the association of kidney stiffness and histopathological findings measured by shear wave elastography (SWE) imaging. 75 patients referred for renal biopsy were included. Using an ultrasound system (Philips EPIQ 7, Bothell, Washington) equipped with SWE software (Philips ElastPQ, Bothell, Washington), Young’s modulus (YM) measurement in kilopascal (kPa) from SWE were correlated with histological parameters.
