E-Cervix™, A tool for measuring the stiffness of cervix using elastographic images

The cervix is usually long and roughly cylindrical in shape, but this changes during pregnancy. Elastography has been used to access the cervix, as it can estimate tissue stiffness. Recent articles [1-11] on elastogarphy for cervical assessment during pregnancy show its usefulness for the prediction of preterm birth and successful labor induction. There is a clinical need for cervical elastography, as an evaluation of biomechanical factor, because cervical length only assesses morphological changes and has a low predictive positive value.
