Many studies mentioned possible flaws in evaluation of malignancy by elastography
. Calcifications and necrotic or cystic change have been noted to interfere with elastographic readings; however, this is less of a problem in cervical lymph nodes in the setting of PTC, where these findings would be highly specific for malignancy.
Accordingly, the so-called Baveno VI criteria stated that patients with LSM < 20kPa (assessed by transient elastography
(TE)) and with normal platelet count (PLT > 150,000/[m.sup.3]) can be considered very unlikely to have HVR (based on a reasonable risk of 5% of missed varices requiring treatment).
In the past 2 decades, EUS elastography
has emerged as a noninvasive tool for estimating the mechanical characteristics of tissues .
Many radiologic methods for staging liver fibrosis, including ultrasound-based and vibration-controlled transient elastography
(VCTE), have recently been increasingly used in clinical practice instead of liver biopsy.
review paper "Transient Elastography
for Significant Liver Fibrosis and Cirrhosis in Chronic Hepatitis B" performed the meta-analysis describing diagnostic accuracy of transient elastography
(TE) for predicting CHB-related fibrosis.
Due to these reasons, a main purpose of this study was to verify the hypothesis of a tension change in the patellar tendon (ligamentum patellae) after application of HIMS, using 2D shear-wave ultrasound elastography
As a new tool to measure the tissue stiffness, US elastography
has been utilized in assessing the thyroid cancer among thyroid nodules .
This edition has new chapters on general MR safety, contrast safety, MR elastography
, MR relaxometry, and motion correction; 100 new board-style questions in a separate chapter; and discussion of susceptibility-weighted imaging, including other potential spin-off uses beyond hemorrhage detection.
TEHRAN (FNA)- To determine why more aerobically fit individuals have better memories, scientists used magnetic resonance elastography
(MRE), which measures the elasticity of organs, and found that fit individuals had a firmer, more elastic hippocampus-a region of the brain associated with memory.
Objective: In this study, the contribution of ultrasound (US) elastography
in the characterization of solid breast masses was investigated.
The presence of asthma did not have a significant impact on the elastography
For those with chronic HCV infection, noninvasive controlled transient elastography
(FibroScan) was used to determine the presence of fibrosis or cirrhosis.
