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.

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...
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...
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...
Transient elastography (TE) and acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) imaging enable a noninvasive assessment of liver stiffness measurement (LSM) and liver fibrosis/cirrhosis staging. However, thei...
Transient elastography and fibrosis-4 index (FIB-4) have been proposed to access hepatic fibrosis and steatosis for patients with chronic liver disease. This study was to determine the changes of live...
Hypothesis: The severity of portal hypertension in compensated advanced chronic liver disease (cACLD) can be assessed using vibration controlled transient elastrography (VCTE) via the Fibr...
Whole body vibration is an exercise modality that could modulate tissue blood perfusion and neural reflexes, and thus may have the potential to alter muscle stiffness through modulation of...
The purpose of this study is to look at liver stiffness with a MRI sequence called Magnetic Resonance Elastography (MRE). The study will let the investigators know whether the subject's li...
The goal of this study is to determine if ultrasound tools can be used to detect liver stiffness. Acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) elastography and backscatter will be used to see i...
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...
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.
Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
