Diagnostic accuracy of sonoelastography in different diseases

The objective of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of sonoelastography in patients of primary and secondary health care settings. Google scholar, PubMed, Medline, Medscape, Wikipedia and NCBI were searched in October 2017 for all original studies and review articles to identify the relevant material. Two reviewers independently selected articles for evaluation of the diagnostic accuracy of sonoelastography in different diseases based on titles and abstracts retrieved by the

Infiltrative non-mass-like hepatocellular carcinoma initially presenting with isolated malignant portal vein thrombosis: A case report and review of the literature

. Additionally, we provide a brief review of the literature regarding the infiltrative type of HCC. To our knowledge, the use of sonoelastography for the targeted liver biopsy has not been reported so far. Case report A 46-year-old woman was referred to our ultrasonography (US) department with the initial presumed clinical diagnosis of acute cholecystitis. She initially presented to the emergency department with epigastric and right upper quadrant pain. Physical examination revealed abdominal tenderness in

Clinical applications of spleen ultrasound elastography – a review

In the last few years, notable technical progress has taken place in ultrasound elastography. Qualitative methods have been replaced by quantitative ones, such as: transient elastography, acoustic radiation force impulse and shear wave elastography. Owing to the fact that the spleen is superficially located, it is possible to obtain reliable measuring accuracy of its hardness using sonoelastography. Lately, many researchers have been investigating how spleen elasticity changes in patients

Sonoelastic response of median nerve to rehabilitation in carpal tunnel syndrome

therapy(4–6). The cross-sectional area (CSA) of the median nerve within the carpal tunnel inlet and outlet is the parameter of interest measured to reflect the severity of CTS(7). As an extension to conventional US, sonoelastography (SE) has been introduced to map the local distribution of elasticity in biological tissues(8,9). Elasticity is defined as the ability of an object to maintain its original size and shape after being stretched or compressed(10). Pathologically abnormal tissue exhibits

Modified sonoelastographic scale score for lymph node assessment in lymphoma – a preliminary report 

suffering from reactive lymphadenopathy was the control group. The size, appearance, vascularity and elastogram of lymph node was analyzed. Results: Type C elastogram correlated stronglywith lymph nodes which presented at least three pathologic features in 2D image. Large lymph nodes with long axis diameter over 3 cm may have ‘cheese with holes’ appearance rather than common type C elastogram. Conclusion: According to our simplifi ed sonoelastography scoring system, type C elastogram was present mainly

Prospective analysis of inter-observer and intra-observer variability in multi ultrasound descriptor assessment of thyroid nodules

, microcalcifications, and a taller-than-wide shape are the B-mode features with the highest level of specificity for the detection of malignant thyroid nodules(6–8). However, none of these features, taken individually, are exclusive to malignant lesions, and benign nodules with a single abnormal feature are relatively common(2,9–11). Thus, new, non-invasive imaging methods capable of supporting the differentiation of thyroid lesions are being developed. Recently, sonoelastography has become an increasingly used

Sonoelastographic evaluation for benign neck lymph nodes and parathyroid lesions

Abstract Aim: The aim of the study was to evaluate the performance of real-time strain sonoelastography for comparison of perithyroidal lymph nodes of Hashimoto thyroiditis patients, jugular lymph nodes of healthy individuals and parathyroid lesions. Material and methods: Fifty parathyroid lesions (Group 1), 52 lymph nodes in Hashimoto thyroiditis patients (Group 2) and 51 reactive jugular lymph nodes (Group 3) were examined by ultrasound, and elastography was performed for a total of 95
