Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS), which causes congestive hepatopathy and aggravates cirrhosis, is typically treated by interventional angioplasty to ameliorate blood flow. X-ray venography is useful for the evaluation of inferior vena cava (IVC) stenosis and determination of treatment timing, but it is invasive and thus unsuitable for repeated examinations. The development of a simple method for the prediction of IVC stenosis would reduce the burden on patients with BCS.

To assess the agreement of one-dimensional transient elastography (1D-TE), two-dimensional shear wave elastography (2D-SWE), and magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) in a consecutive cohort of patien...
This study aimed to investigate the association between the findings of Doppler ultrasonography and transient elastography using FibroScan® and to determine the cut-off points, sensitivity, and speci...
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is currently the most common chronic liver disease worldwide. Although it has become one of the leading causes of cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma in the...
To perform head-to-head comparisons of the feasibility and diagnostic performance of transient elastography (TE), point shear-wave elastography (pSWE), and magnetic resonance elastography (MRE).
Two-dimensional shear wave elastography (2D-SWE) can noninvasively evaluate hepatic elastic modulus as shear wave velocity (SWV). Additionally, it may predict the presence of clinical relevant hepatic...
To determine if transient elastography (TE), when combined with ultrasound (US) pattern characterization can improve the prediction of progression to a nodular pattern on US. To confirm t...
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...
Diagnosis of hepatic fibrosis is challenging as specific tests for detection of fibrosis in pediatric Cystic Fibrosis associated liver disease (CFALD) have not been developed and existing ...
The main objective is to study the effect of polyphenol supplementation on hepatic steatosis as measured by hepatic ultrasound, hepatic elastography and magnetic resonance hepatic spectros...
To evaluate the diagnostic performance of two-dimensional shear-wave elastography (SWE) for staging hepatic fibrosis in the background liver parenchyma in patients with liver tumors before...
A type of surgical portasystemic shunt to reduce portal hypertension with associated complications of esophageal varices and ascites. It is performed percutaneously through the jugular vein and involves the creation of an intrahepatic shunt between the hepatic vein and portal vein. The channel is maintained by a metallic stent. The procedure can be performed in patients who have failed sclerotherapy and is an additional option to the surgical techniques of portocaval, mesocaval, and splenorenal shunts. It takes one to three hours to perform. (JAMA 1995;273(23):1824-30)
The measurement of the amplitude of the components of a complex waveform throughout the frequency range of the waveform. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed)
A short thick vein formed by union of the superior mesenteric vein and the splenic vein.
Blockage of the RETINAL VEIN. Those at high risk for this condition include patients with HYPERTENSION; DIABETES MELLITUS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; and other CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES.
The vein accompanying the femoral artery in the same sheath; it is a continuation of the popliteal vein and becomes the external iliac vein.
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...
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
