The diagnosis and classification of idiopathic inflammatory myopathies are based mainly on clinical and histological features. The discovery of myositis-specific and myositis-associated antibodies has...
Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies are a group of autoimmune diseases that are characterized by muscle inflammation resulting in elevated muscle enzyme release and distinctive biopsy findings. This gr...
A high prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD), not fully explained by the prevalence of traditional risk factors only, is reported in patients with idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIMs). Thus,...
Evidence suggest an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases including acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIM). The aim of this study was to investigate the risk of ...
S100A11 (calgizzarin), a member of the S100 family, is associated with oncogenesis, inflammation and myocardial damage. Our aim was to analyse S100A11 in idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIMs) and ...
Physical training may improve physical capacity and health parameters in various systemic autoimmune diseases, including idiopathic inflammatory myopathies. Therefore, the present study wi...
As a T2T, our patients with idiopathic inflammatory myopathies will receive pulse therapies with methyprednisolone and/or human intravenous immunoglobulin, or only methyprednisolone at dis...
The aim of our study was to assess the performance of compression-strain US elastography in patients with idiopathic inflammatory myopathies over time and to study these findings with clin...
1. To assess changes in impedance parameters in Idiopathic Inflammatory Myopathies (IIMs). 2. To assess whether EIM parameters are reflective of disease severity, based on clinical ...
The diagnosis of the different forms of inflammatory myopathies (polymyositis, dermatomyositis, inclusion-body myositis...) remains difficult which may lead to unappropriate patient care. ...
Devices or objects in various imaging techniques used to visualize or enhance visualization by simulating conditions encountered in the procedure. Phantoms are used very often in procedures employing or measuring x-irradiation or radioactive material to evaluate performance. Phantoms often have properties similar to human tissue. Water demonstrates absorbing properties similar to normal tissue, hence water-filled phantoms are used to map radiation levels. Phantoms are used also as teaching aids to simulate real conditions with x-ray or ultrasonic machines. (From Iturralde, Dictionary and Handbook of Nuclear Medicine and Clinical Imaging, 1990)
The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.
A nursing specialty that deals specifically with the care of patients undergoing diagnostic, neurological, cardiovascular, interventional, ultrasonography, computerized tomography, nuclear medicine, magnetic resonance, radiation oncology or other related procedures .
A type of MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING that uses only one nuclear spin excitation per image and therefore can obtain images in a fraction of a second rather than the minutes required in traditional MRI techniques. It is used in a variety of medical and scientific applications.
