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 of the myometrium can be measured by using shear-wave technology. Our study involves 50 patients with a healthy pregnancy and spontaneous vaginal delivery. One co-investigator will carry out measurements at the uterine fundus, at three different time points: after fetal delivery, after placental delivery and 30 minutes after placental delivery.

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...
Assess the accuracy of the sequential measurements by 3D Shear Wave Elastography (SWE) for predicting histological response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in patients with locally advanced br...
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...
Excess blood loss from uterine bleeding associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR or CHILDBIRTH. It is defined as blood loss greater than 500 ml or of the amount that adversely affects the maternal physiology, such as BLOOD PRESSURE and HEMATOCRIT. Postpartum hemorrhage is divided into two categories, immediate (within first 24 hours after birth) or delayed (after 24 hours postpartum).
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.
Transient autoimmune thyroiditis occurring in the POSTPARTUM PERIOD. It is characterized by the presence of high titers of AUTOANTIBODIES against THYROID PEROXIDASE and THYROGLOBULIN. Clinical signs include the triphasic thyroid hormone pattern: beginning with THYROTOXICOSIS, followed with HYPOTHYROIDISM, then return to euthyroid state by 1 year postpartum.
Abnormal placentation in which all or parts of the PLACENTA are attached directly to the MYOMETRIUM due to a complete or partial absence of DECIDUA. It is associated with POSTPARTUM HEMORRHAGE because of the failure of placental separation.
A complication of OBSTETRIC LABOR in which the corpus of the UTERUS is forced completely or partially through the UTERINE CERVIX. This can occur during the late stages of labor and is associated with IMMEDIATE POSTPARTUM HEMORRHAGE.
