Quali-quantitative characteristics relative to the rigidity of canine health eyes will be assessed through ARFI elastography (Acoustic Radiaton Force Impulse) aiming to establish standards for the species. For this study 42 brachycephalic canines within 1 to 6 years old, male and female will be evaluated. . The subjects will undergo to physical, laboratorial and ophthalmic examinations. Furthermore, mode A and B ultrasonography and elastography (quantitative and qualitative methods) will be used. The experiment will be completely randomized and the significance level to be considered will be 5%. The data will be previously tested for normality of residuals and homogeneity of variance (F test). If statistical significance is present, the average analysis, using paired mean test (t test) will be performed. Non-homogeneous median will be evaluated through the Mann-Whitney test. For data correlation linear regression and determination of the correlation coefficients will be adopted. (AU)
