Hydatid cyst (HC) is a parasitic disease that is endemic particularly to the sheep-breeding regions of the world, our country included. Given their propensity to materialize most commonly in the liver, our study evaluates the value of ultrasound elastography in the differential diagnosis of simple cyst and type I HCs of the liver.
