The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of low intensity ultrasound therapy over the cartilage morphology (thickness and volume) of patients with mild or moderate knee osteoa...
This is a six-cohort, double-blinded, randomized, sham-controlled feasibility trial to determine whether organ-specific biological effects are achievable through selective ultrasound of th...
In this study, we investigate the potential of the ultrasound imaging technique to diagnose the severity of knee osteoarthritis (OA). In parallel, measurements will also be conducted using...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether osteopathic manipulative treatment (a type of spinal manipulative therapy used by osteopathic physicians) and ultrasound physical therapy ...
Hip osteoarthritis (HOA) is a common cause of pain and disability in aging population. Conservative treatment is based on lifestyle modifications, physical therapy, analgesic and anti-infl...
Many osteoarthritis patients persist symptomatic despite nonsurgical treatment. Pulsed ultrasound might be a viable alternative for such cases, but its real clinical relevance remains unclear.
The aims of this study were to systematically review clinimetrics of commonly assessed ultrasound pathologies in knee, hip and hand osteoarthritis (OA), and to conduct a meta-analysis for each clinime...
To explore the potential molecular mechanism of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) in the treatment of temporomandibular joint osteoarthritis (TMJ-OA), and identify the target genes for therapy o...
Intra-articular steroid injection (IASI) is an effective therapy for hip osteoarthritis (OA), but carries risks and provides significant pain relief to only two thirds of patients. We attempted to pre...
The objective of this research was to study the effects of salt reduction and the application of ultrasound (nominal current of 600 W cm for 10 min) on the physicochemical properties, the micros...
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)
Use of ultrasound to increase the percutaneous adsorption of drugs.
The application of high intensity ultrasound to liquids.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
Arthritis is by definition the inflammation of one or more joints, characterized by swelling, pain, warmth, redness and diminished range of joint movement (Oxford Medical Dictionary). There are many different types; Noninflammatory; Osteoarthritis, N...
