The goal of this study is to determine if ultrasound tools can be used to detect liver stiffness. Acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) elastography and backscatter will be used to see i...
The investigators will assess the ability of ultrasound (US) to measure liver stiffness (cirrhosis) and liver fat content (steatosis).
Pilot study examining changes in liver stiffness measured by ultrasound before and after TIPS creation
The purpose of this study is to look at liver stiffness with a MRI sequence called Magnetic Resonance Elastography (MRE). The study will let the investigators know whether the subject's li...
A prospective, pilot study using acoustic radiation force imaging (ARFI) ultrasound (US) to quantify liver stiffness in children and young adults with chronic liver disease. ARFI results w...
Two-dimensional (2-D) shear wave elastography is a new sonographic elastography method for noninvasive measurement of liver stiffness.
Quantitative Assessment of Liver Stiffness Using Ultrasound Shear Wave Elastography in Patients With Chronic Graft-Versus-Host Disease After Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation: A Pilot Study.
The purpose of this study was to compare hepatic stiffness on ultrasound (US) shear wave elastography (SWE) in patients with chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) after allogeneic hematopoietic ste...
Children receiving multiple blood cell transfusions are prone to iron overload and successive tissue damage in liver parenchyma, making noninvasive screening options desirable. Ultrasound (US) elastog...
Liver stiffness increases after the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Transient elastography for liver stiffness measurement (LSM) using fibroscan is a simple noninvasive method of proven...
The present document describes the SIUMB (Italian Society of Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology) guidelines for the use of ultrasound in the management of focal liver disease. The aim of the paper is ...
Loss of vascular ELASTICITY due to factors such as AGING; and ARTERIOSCLEROSIS. Increased arterial stiffness is one of the RISK FACTORS for many CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES.
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).
Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect, with frequency-shifted ultrasound reflections produced by moving targets (usually red blood cells) in the bloodstream along the ultrasound axis in direct proportion to the velocity of movement of the targets, to determine both direction and velocity of blood flow. (Stedman, 25th ed)
Sudden liver failure in the presence of underlying compensated chronic LIVER DISEASE (e.g., LIVER CIRRHOSIS; HEPATITIS; and liver injury and failure) due to a precipitating acute hepatic insult.
