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

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


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.


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

To examine whether EBUS with transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) can accurately and safely diagnose enlarged lymph nodes in the chest in patients without suspected malignancy

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...

Feasability Study on the Contribution of Guided Puncture With Echoendoscopy

Impact of screening nodes mediastinal by PET, at different times of the management of cancer disease, remain unclear. Benefits of combined PET and puncture with echoendoscopy for the diag...

PET and Neck Ultrasound for the Detection of Cervical Lymphadenopathy in Patients with Lung Cancer and Mediastinal Lymphadenopathy.

Cervical lymph nodes are frequently involved in patients with lung cancer and indicate inoperability. Some guidelines recommend neck ultrasound (NUS) in patients with bulky mediastinal lymphadenopathy...

High-riding Superior Pericardial Recess: A Key Pitfall in Misinterpretation During CT Evaluation of the Mediastinum.

An understanding of thoracic computed tomographic anatomy is vital for procedural planning in bronchoscopy. When reviewing computed tomographic images in preparation for endobronchial ultrasound-direc...

EBUS-TBNA Cytology Specimens are Predictive of Occupational dust Exposure in Patients with Bilateral Mediastinal and Hilar Lymphadenopathy.

To describe the cytological features of patients with significant occupational dust exposure presenting with benign bilateral mediastinal and hilar lymphadenopathy (BHL).

Endobronchial Ultrasound in Suspected Non-Malignant Mediastinal Lymphadenopathy.

 Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) bronchoscopy with transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) is a well-established tool in mediastinal staging in lung cancer and gains importance in exploration of non...

A Newly Recognized Histologic Pattern of IgG4-related Lymphadenopathy: Expanding the Morphologic Spectrum.

Immunoglobulin (Ig)G4-related sclerosing disease is a fibroinflammatory disorder characterized by tumor-forming lesions at multiple anatomic sites and by increased serum levels of IgG4. IgG4-related l...

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.
