Figure 1 Selection process and distributions of the diseases among the patients (flow chart). In the process, EUS elastography images and histopathologic results of subjects included in the study were acquired from the system and sent to the designated computer for further analysis by researcher A. Next, researcher B selected qualified images from included subjects’ EUS elastography images and numbered all qualified images with random numbers. Hue histogram analysis of numbered images and statistical analysis were carried out by researcher C and researcher D, respectively. Among the researchers, B, C, and D were blinded to patient history and the aim of the study.
