A Real-time and Computerized Sonographic Reporting System in Predicting Malignant Cervical Lymphadenopathy

2014-07-23 21:08:58 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The investigaotors want to establish a real-time and computerized score reporting system based on the significant predictors of the measured sonographic parameters and demographic data.

Description

One hundred eight patients with neck lymphadenopathy, receiving ultrasonography and ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (US-FNA), were used to construct a predictive model. This model was validated by another independent patient cohort.

A Clinical tRial of Endobronchial Ultrasound for the Diagnosis of MEDiastinal lymphadenopathY (REMEDY)

Enlarged glands in the chest (mediastinal lymphadenopathy) is a common problem and may have a variety of different causes. In the past an operation (mediastinoscopy) was required to diagno...

Accuracy and Safety of Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS) in Suspected Non-malignant Mediastinal Lymphadenopathy

Rapid On-site Evaluation of Endobronchial Ultrasound Guided Transbronchial Needle Aspiration Samples by Pulmonologists

The study is aimed at verifying if a pulmonologist in training can reliably assess the adequacy of EBUS-TBNA samples from intrathoracic lymphadenopathy after a period of training provided ...

Diagnosis of Mediastinal Tuberculous Lymphadenopathy by Endobronchial Ultrasound-guided Transbronchial Needle Aspiration (EBUS-TBNA)

Although mediastinal tuberculous lymphadenopathy is not rare in adults of such an abnormality. Isolated mediastinal without a parenchymal lung lesion in adults is unusual with the incidenc...

CT assessment of axillary lymphadenopathy in patients with rheumatoid arthritis: association with disease activity and severity.

Axillary lymph nodes (ALNs) are often seen on chest computed tomography (CT) in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients. Early reports described lymphadenopathy as one of the systemic manifestations rather...

Isolated Mediastinal Lymphadenopathy Caused by Rhodococcus equi Infection.

Mediastinal lymphadenopathy is common finding in thoracic surgery, which often requires morphological confirmation to establish the definite diagnosis. The most frequent diagnoses are metastatic lung ...

Diagnosis of clinically suspected and unsuspected tubercular lymphadenopathy by cytology, culture, and smear microscopy.

Tubercular lymphadenopathy (TBLN) accounts for 20-40% cases of extrapulmonary tuberculosis. But the common presenting symptoms of tuberculosis like fever, cough, weight loss, fatigue, and night sweats...

Bilateral inguinal lymphadenopathy presenting as tuberculosis in a case of carcinoma rectum.

Isolated bilateral inguinal tubercular lymphadenitis is a very rare presentation. A 59-year-old male, on treatment for Carcinoma rectum (T3 N1 M0) presented with bilateral inguinal lymphadenopathy. Me...

Assessment of Clinically Suspected Tubercular Lymphadenopathy by Real-Time PCR Compared to Non-Molecular Methods on Lymph Node Aspirates.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A disorder characterized by proliferation of arborizing small vessels, prominent immunoblastic proliferations and amorphous acidophilic interstitial material. Clinical manifestations include fever, sweats, weight loss, generalized lymphadenopathy and frequently hepatosplenomegaly.

Disease of LYMPH NODES which are abnormal in size, number or consistency.

A common, acute infection usually caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN). There is an increase in mononuclear white blood cells and other atypical lymphocytes, generalized lymphadenopathy, splenomegaly, and occasionally hepatomegaly with hepatitis.

Benign, non-Langerhans-cell, histiocytic proliferative disorder that primarily affects the lymph nodes. It is often referred to as sinus histiocytosis with massive lymphadenopathy.

Antigens associated with specific proteins of the human adult T-cell immunodeficiency virus (HIV); also called HTLV-III-associated and lymphadenopathy-associated virus (LAV) antigens.
