Rapid, easy and early pancreatic cancer diagnosis and therapeutic follow up continue to necessitate an increasing attention towards the development of effective treatment strategies for this lethal disease. The non invasive quantitative assessment of pancreatic heterogeneity is limited. Here, we report the development of a preclinical imaging protocol using ultrasonography and shear wave technology in an experimental in situ pancreatic cancer model to measure the evolution of pancreatic rigidity.
