Ultrasound Elastography in Diagnosing Patients With Kidney or Liver Solid Focal Lesions

2014-10-30 23:08:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

Description

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

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.

OUTLINE:

Patients undergo ultrasound elastography.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
