ARTICLE INFO Abstract We have described the experience using the acoustic coupler for subcutaneous angiolipoma comprehensively diagnosed in the lower extremity. The feature of ultrasonography (US) image with the acoustic coupler is more clearly depicted, particularly in superficial or near-field location. The usefulness of this procedure has been demonstrated as stableness state, equipped condition, and satisfactory observation for vasculature status due to the low attenuation material as

The author will also recommend the observation with acoustic coupler for dermatologic superficial lesion, especially, rough, unevenness part in hand, foot, and joint location without copious amount of gel. We will indicate that acoustic coupler is useful for the appropriate condition to depict the accurate imaging on Real-Time Tissue Elastography (RTE). The author will suggest that this procedure can contribute to the accurate US diagnosis for dermatological superficial lesion, especially dermal involvement without a generous amount of gel.
