To evaluate the relationship between renal elasticity which was determined with shear wave elastography (SWE) and hemorrhage in patients who undergone percutaneous renal parenchyma biopsy (PRB).
This article was published in the following journal.

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...
Ultrasound elastography including transient elastography (TE), point shear wave elastography, (pSWE) and two (three)- dimensional shear wave elastography (2D-SWE) have been introduced mainly for the e...
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...
Evaluation of nerve mechanical properties has the potential to improve assessment of nerve impairment. Shear wave velocity, as measured using shear wave ultrasound elastography, is a promising indicat...
Two-dimensional shear wave elastography (2D-SWE) is the latest generation of ultrasound elastography for the non-invasive assessment of liver fibrosis in chronic hepatitis B (CHB). We aimed to identif...
Prospective study evaluating the feasibility of shear-wave elastography of the uterus during the third stage of labour and following placental delivery. We hypothesize that the stiffness o...
A single-center, observational, prospective, single cohort study with before-after design. Evaluation by shear-wave elastography, measured in kilopascals (KPa), of the muscle, tendon and c...
The patients treated in our clinic for epididymoorchitis will be given scrotal shear wave elastography by the Department of Radiology and affected testis will be compared to non affected t...
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...
Tissue elasticity is being increasingly used as diagnostic parameter, since at the macroscopic level benign breast lesions tend to be stiffer than normal breast tissue but softer than brea...
Percutaneous excision of a herniated or displaced intervertebral disk by posterolateral approach, always remaining outside the spinal canal. Percutaneous nucleotomy was first described by Hijikata in Japan in 1975. In 1985 Onik introduced automated percutaneous nucleotomy which consists in percutaneous aspiration of the nucleus pulposus. It is carried out under local anesthesia, thus reducing the surgical insult and requiring brief hospitalization, often performed on an outpatient basis. It appears to be a well-tolerated alternative to surgical diskectomy and chymopapain nucleolysis.
A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
The internal resistance of a material to moving some parts of it parallel to a fixed plane, in contrast to stretching (TENSILE STRENGTH) or compression (COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH). Ionic crystals are brittle because, when subjected to shear, ions of the same charge are brought next to each other, which causes repulsion.
Surgical removal of large KIDNEY CALCULI by means of a percutaneous nephroscope which is passed into the KIDNEY PELVIS through a track created in the patient's back.
Predicting the time of OVULATION can be achieved by measuring the preovulatory elevation of ESTRADIOL; LUTEINIZING HORMONE or other hormones in BLOOD or URINE. Accuracy of ovulation prediction depends on the completeness of the hormone profiles, and the ability to determine the preovulatory LH peak.
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...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
