Assessment of 10-year changes in liver stiffness using vibration-controlled transient elastography in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

08:00 EDT 11th April 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Assessment of 10-year changes in liver stiffness using vibration-controlled transient elastography in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease."

Although a liver biopsy is golden standard for the diagnosis and staging of Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), repeated assessment of patients' liver tissue conditions are impractical. We assessed the 10-year changes in liver stiffness measurements (LSM) utilizing vibration-controlled transient elastography (VCTE) in NAFLD patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Loss of vascular ELASTICITY due to factors such as AGING; and ARTERIOSCLEROSIS. Increased arterial stiffness is one of the RISK FACTORS for many CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES.

An occupational disorder resulting from prolonged exposure to vibration, affecting the fingers, hands, and forearms. It occurs in workers who regularly use vibrating tools such as jackhammers, power chain saws, riveters, etc. Symptoms include episodic finger blanching, NUMBNESS, tingling, and loss of nerve sensitivity.

Work that is the report of a pre-planned, usually controlled, clinical study of the safety and efficacy of diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques based on a small number of healthy persons and conducted over the period of about a year in either the United States or a foreign country.

Systematic identification of a population's needs or the assessment of individuals to determine the proper level of services needed.

Evaluation procedures that focus on both the outcome or status (OUTCOMES ASSESSMENT) of the patient at the end of an episode of care - presence of symptoms, level of activity, and mortality; and the process (ASSESSMENT, PROCESS) - what is done for the patient diagnostically and therapeutically.
