|Soft Tissue Lesions||Device: Ultrasound|
The investigators propose UltraSound Elastography as an imaging method which allows for a better evaluation of soft tissue and organ lesions compared to the conventional US modalities used nowadays in the dayly clinical routine.
This is a prospective, single-center, non-randomised, non-blinded trial with US Elastography of Patients referred to our institution to assess soft tissue and organ lesions. All patients will undergo next to the clinical indicated conventional US-examination, US Elastography after informed consent. After completion of these three examinations, the participation in the study is completed.
