Ultrasound elastography has become a promising noninvasive approach for assessing liver fibrosis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the diagnosis ability of liver stiffness detected by shear wave elastography (SWE) for predicting the presence of esophageal varices (EVs) in cirrhotic patients. Four hundred sixty-eight cirrhotic patients were enrolled consecutively. Liver stiffness and EVs were detected by SWE and endoscopy, respectively. The baseline characteristics were recorded, and areas under the...
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 patients affected by hepatitis C virus (HCV) and to understand which patient-related factors are associated with disagreement.
The aim of the study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of cervical elastography in predicting preterm delivery (PTD).
Liver MR elastography is an imaging technique used to measure liver stiffness in the evaluation for possible fibrosis or cirrhosis. Liver stiffness measurement (LSM) is useful for predicting the stage of liver fibrosis. However, obtaining and reporting accurate and reliable LSMs with MR elastography require an understanding of the three core components of liver MR elastography: optimization of imaging technique, prompt quality control of images, and proper interpretation and reporting of elastogram findings...
We aimed to assess the diagnostic performance of MR elastography (MRE) in predicting esophageal varices (EVs) in patients with chronic liver disease.
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 evaluation of the liver. All the techniques are also feasible for the examination of spleen, whereas pSWE and 2D-SWE can be used for the assessment of the pancreas, kidney, gastrointestinal tract and other organs. Strain elastography also plays a role for non-liver applications. The aim of the current report is ...
To assess the performance of shear wave elastography (SWE) and an extended model in predicting malignant cervical lymph nodes (LNs).
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).
Renal dysfunction is a common finding in cirrhotic patients and has a great physiologic, and therefore, prognostic relevance. The combination of liver disease and renal dysfunction can occur as a result of systemic conditions that affect both the liver and the kidney, although primary disorders of the liver complicated by renal dysfunction are much more common. As most of the renal dysfunction scenarios in cirrhotic patients correspond to either prerenal azotemia or hepatorenal syndrome (HRS), physicians te...
As a relatively new sonographic technique, tissue elastography has emerged as a qualitative and potentially quantitative adjunctive tool to provide additional information on tissue stiffness, aiming to further improve diagnostic confidence in discriminating benign from malignant focal testicular lesions. The purpose of this review is to provide an overview of the elastography techniques used to assess focal testicular lesions and their typical appearance on tissue elastography.
Primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fifth most frequently reported malignancy, and it is also the second most common cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. Although most HCC cases have been reported to develop from cirrhosis, accumulating data suggest that HCC is also closely related to non-cirrhotic chronic liver disease. Traditionally, HCC was thought to develop mostly from cirrhosis; however, an increasing number of reports have found that HCC can develop directly from inflammation without c...
During endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA), the sonographic findings of B-mode imaging, as well as endobronchial elastography, can be obtained noninvasively and used for the prediction of nodal metastasis.
We retrospectively compared chest trauma scoring systems in patients with rib fractures without major extrathoracic injury for predicting respiratory complications. We also evaluated the predictive power according to the presence or absence of pulmonary contusion.
and study aims: EUS elastography is a real-time imaging technique that analyzes the tissue elasticity. The aim of this study was to investigate the applicability of the quantitative EUS elastography in the differential diagnosis of the gastric subepithelial tumors (SETs).
We aimed to determine the identities in explants of indeterminate hepatic nodules (IDNs) that had been scanned by dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), in order to establish clinico-radiological parameters predicting which IDNs are hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs). This study included 88 cirrhotic patients who underwent gadoxetic acid-enhanced MRI in pre-LT workup followed within 90 days by primary liver transplantation (LT). The MRI detected 168 hepatic nodules that were classified into 6 benign tumors...
Cirrhotic patients are susceptible to Clostridium difficile infection (CDI), however, the high risk factors are not clear. The present study aimed to identify the risk factors in cirrhotic patients with CDI.
Cirrhotic patients with gastroesophageal varices and non-tumoral portal vein thrombosis have a higher risk of re-bleeding and poor prognosis. This study aimed to analyze inflammatory biomarkers and thromboelastography in cirrhotic patients with portal vein thrombosis.
Evaluation of mandibular lymph nodes in a patient with head and neck cancer is important for stage determination and prognosis development, and, in human medicine, the use of sonoelastography for differentiating between non-metastatic and metastatic lymph nodes has been reported. Our prospective, cross-sectional study aimed to evaluate the diagnostic performance of strain elastography and to determine elastographic cut-off values for predicting malignancy. Sixty-six mandibular lymph nodes were included (cli...
Thyroid nodular disease is common, but predicting the risk of malignancy can be difficult. In this prospective study, we aimed to assess the diagnostic accuracy of shear wave elastography (SWE) in predicting thyroid malignancy. Patients with thyroid nodules were enrolled from a surgical tertiary unit. Elasticity index (EI) measured by SWE was registered for seven EI-outcomes assessing nodular stiffness and heterogeneity. The diagnosis was determined histologically. In total, 329 patients (mean age: 55±13 y...
To validate the diagnostic value of a new point shear-wave elastography method, S-shearwave elastography (S-SWE; Samsung Medison Co., Ltd.), in noninvasive assessment of liver fibrosis.
To evaluate the diagnostic performance of strain ratio elastography (SRE) and shear wave elastography (SWE) alone and in combination with Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System (TIRADS) classification parameters to improve differentiation between benign and malignant thyroid nodules.
The occurrence of endothelial alterations in the liver and in the splanchnic vasculature of cirrhotic patients and experimental models of liver diseases has been demonstrated. However, the pathological role of the portal vein endothelium in this clinical context is scarcely studied and, therefore, deserves attention. In this context, we aimed to investigate whether pathological endothelial activation occurs in the portal vein of cirrhotic rats.
