Validation of noninvasive focal depth measurements to determine epithelial thickness of the vaginal wall.

08:00 EDT 10th June 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Validation of noninvasive focal depth measurements to determine epithelial thickness of the vaginal wall."

This study investigates whether noninvasive focal depth (FD) measurements correlate with vaginal wall epithelial thickness (ET). If FD accurately reflects ET of the vaginal wall, this would allow noninvasive longitudinal assessment of (newly developed) treatment modalities aiming to increase ET, without the need for invasive biopsies.

Validation of the blood gas analyzer for pH measurements in IVF culture medium: Prevent suboptimal culture conditions.

Measurement of pH in IVF-media using the blood gas analyzer (BGA) requires validation, because IVF-media is outside the intended scope of the BGA. To determine whether the Siemens Rapidpoint 500 BGA i...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A prenatal ultrasonic measurement of the thickness or translucent area below the SKIN in the back of the fetal NECK, or nape of the neck, during the first 11-14 weeks of gestation (PREGNANCY TRIMESTER, FIRST). Abnormal thickness or nuchal translucent measurements resulting from fluid collection, is associated with increased risks of CHROMOSOME ABNORMALITIES. (Nicolaides et al., 1992)

A measurement of the thickness of the carotid artery walls. It is measured by B-mode ULTRASONOGRAPHY and is used as a surrogate marker for ATHEROSCLEROSIS.

Vitamin K-dependent calcium-binding protein synthesized by OSTEOBLASTS and found primarily in BONES. Serum osteocalcin measurements provide a noninvasive specific marker of bone metabolism. The protein contains three residues of the amino acid gamma-carboxyglutamic acid (Gla), which, in the presence of CALCIUM, promotes binding to HYDROXYAPATITE and subsequent accumulation in BONE MATRIX.

A noninvasive (noninfiltrating) carcinoma of the breast characterized by a proliferation of malignant epithelial cells confined to the mammary ducts or lobules, without light-microscopy evidence of invasion through the basement membrane into the surrounding stroma.

A noninvasive technique that uses the differential absorption properties of hemoglobin and myoglobin to evaluate tissue oxygenation and indirectly can measure regional hemodynamics and blood flow. Near-infrared light (NIR) can propagate through tissues and at particular wavelengths is differentially absorbed by oxygenated vs. deoxygenated forms of hemoglobin and myoglobin. Illumination of intact tissue with NIR allows qualitative assessment of changes in the tissue concentration of these molecules. The analysis is also used to determine body composition.
