This clinical trial studies ultrasound elastography in diagnosing patients with kidney or liver solid focal lesions. New diagnostic procedures, such as ultrasound elastography, may be a less invasive way to check for kidney or liver solid focal lesions.
I. To determine the utility of ultrasound elastography in correlation with kidney or liver biopsy or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) results.
Patients undergo ultrasound elastography.

In this study the researchers will scan the thyroid nodules of patients scheduled for surgical removal of these nodules. During their preadmission testing, but prior to their surgery, the ...
This clinical trial studies an ultrasound-based imaging procedure called elastography using the Aixplorer system in diagnosing prostate cancer in patients undergoing biopsy. Ultrasound is ...
The primary objective is to perform a pilot trial evaluation of a novel prostate ultrasound imaging software utilizing tissue elasticity measurements to identify tumor foci among men who w...
The purpose of this study is to see if the investigators can use ultrasound imaging to determine the type of clots in patients to help better manage their care.
This clinical trial studies if kilo-voltage cone beam computed tomography (KV-CBCT) and ultrasound imaging works in guiding radiation therapy in patients with prostate, liver, or pancreati...
BACKGROUND This study aimed to compare the application value of intraoperative fluorescence navigation technology (FNT) and intraoperative ultrasound (IOUS) in primary liver cancer surgery. MATERIAL A...
Changes in tissue elasticity are generally correlated with pathological phenomena. For example, diffuse liver disease progressively reduces the elasticity of the liver. Quasi-static elastography is po...
Epidemiological studies of statin use and liver cancer risk have produced conflicting results. We examined the association between statin use and risk of primary liver cancer in two large independent ...
Liver cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death worldwide. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common type of primary liver cancer in adults. The aim of this study was to define the ro...
Zebrafish has been recently considered an ideal vertebrate for studying developmental biology, genetics, particularly for modeling tumorigenesis, angiogenesis, and regeneration in vivo. However, when ...
Non-invasive imaging methods based on the mechanical response of an object to a vibrational or impulsive force. It is used for determining the viscoelastic properties of tissue, and thereby differentiating soft from hard inclusions in tissue such as microcalcifications, and some cancer lesions. Most techniques use ultrasound to create the images - eliciting the response with an ultrasonic radiation force and/or recording displacements of the tissue by Doppler ultrasonography.
The use of ultrasound to guide minimally invasive surgical procedures such as needle ASPIRATION BIOPSY; DRAINAGE; etc. Its widest application is intravascular ultrasound imaging but it is useful also in urology and intra-abdominal conditions.
Tissue ablation of the PROSTATE performed by ultrasound from a transducer placed in the RECTUM. The procedure is used to treat prostate cancer (PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA).
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.
Use of ultrasound for imaging the breast. The most frequent application is the diagnosis of neoplasms of the female breast.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
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...
