Reliability of Transient Elastography-Based Liver Stiffness for Diagnosing Portal Hypertension in Patients with Alcoholic Liver Disease: A Diagnostic Meta-Analysis with Specific Cut-Off Values.

 Transient elastography-based liver stiffness value (TE-LSV) has been studied for the diagnosis of portal hypertension. Liver stiffness is influenced by the disease etiology. We aimed to perform a m...

Liver stiffness in chronic hepatitis C virus infection.

The severity of liver fibrosis can be assessed noninvasively today by liver stiffness measurements. Vibration-controlled transient elastography, shear wave elastography or magnetic resonance elastogra...

Accuracy of FibroScan Controlled Attenuation Parameter and Liver Stiffness Measurement in Assessing Steatosis and Fibrosis in Patients With Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease.

We estimated the accuracy of FibroScan vibration-controlled transient elastography controlled attenuation parameter (CAP) and liver stiffness measurements (LSMs) in assessing steatosis and fibrosis in...

Is Fasting Necessary for Individuals With Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease to Undergo Vibration-Controlled Transient Elastography?

To investigate the effect of meal intake on liver stiffness measurement (LSM) and controlled attenuation parameter (CAP) in patients with biopsy-proven nonalcoholic fatty liver disease undergoing vibr...

Evaluation of acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) elastography as non-invasive diagnostic tool in living donor liver transplantation.

Role of acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) elastography, in transplant setting, is not well established. We aimed to define the normal mean values of the liver stiffness by ARFI Elastography in h...

SWE Liver Stiffness as a Predictor of Progression of Chronic Liver Diseases

This study is a multicenter individual patient-based meta-analysis that will assess the performances of liver stiffness measurements performed with supersonic shear imaging shearwave elast...

Transient Elastography in Autoimmune Hepatitis

Recent, research has focused on the evaluation of non-invasive methods for the assessment of liver fibrosis in patients with chronic liver disease. Among these methods, transient elastogra...

Iron Overload and Transient Elastography in Patients With Myelodysplastic Syndrome

Patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) have an ineffective hemopoiesis and often suffer from anemia. This can lead to red blood cell transfusion dependency and iron overload. Iron ov...

Combining MRI Steatosis Assessment and Transient Elastography to Improve Liver Fibrosis Diagnosis in Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease

The main objective is to compare the accuracy of transient elastography taking into account liver steatosis determined by MRI, to liver biopsy for the diagnosis of liver fibrosis ≥F2 in ...

Quantitative Real-time Ultrasound Elastography for Characterisation of Liver Tumors

Shear Wave Elastography (SWE™) is a quantitative elastography method for measuring tissue stiffness. The difference in stiffness between benign and malignant tumors has been demonstrate...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Meta-analysis of randomized trials in which estimates of comparative treatment effects are visualized and interpreted from a network of interventions that may or may not have been evaluated directly against each other. Common considerations in network meta-analysis include conceptual and statistical heterogeneity and incoherence.

Works consisting of studies using a quantitative method of combining the results of independent studies (usually drawn from the published literature) and synthesizing summaries and conclusions which may be used to evaluate therapeutic effectiveness, plan new studies, etc. It is often an overview of clinical trials. It is usually called a meta-analysis by the author or sponsoring body and should be differentiated from reviews of literature.

Techniques of nucleotide sequence analysis that increase the range, complexity, sensitivity, and accuracy of results by greatly increasing the scale of operations and thus the number of nucleotides, and the number of copies of each nucleotide sequenced. The sequencing may be done by analysis of the synthesis or ligation products, hybridization to preexisting sequences, etc.

Activation analysis in which the specimen is bombarded with neutrons. Identification is made by measuring the resulting radioisotopes. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)

Predicting the time of OVULATION can be achieved by measuring the preovulatory elevation of ESTRADIOL; LUTEINIZING HORMONE or other hormones in BLOOD or URINE. Accuracy of ovulation prediction depends on the completeness of the hormone profiles, and the ability to determine the preovulatory LH peak.
