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...
The aim of this investigation is to compare the effects of continuous (CUS) and pulsed (PUS) ultrasound associated with a program of exercises on pain, range of motion, muscle strength, fu...
To determine the effects of ultrasound therapy and neuromuscular electrical stimulation on the muscle architecture and functional capacity of patients with knee osteoarthritis.
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...
To establish "normal" ranges for synovial thickness and effusion detected by ultrasound (US) and to determine cut-offs associated with knee pain (KP) and radiographic knee osteoarthritis (RKOA) in the...
This study evaluates the use of ultrasound simulators for retaining and improving ultrasound skills acquired in undergraduate ultrasound training.
Introduced at the end of the '50s, ultrasound has widely developed and spread since then. Not limited to morphological information, sonography more and more includes elements of functional imaging. Th...
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...
Ultrasound simulators are increasingly used for teaching and training purposes, but development has been limited by the need for dedicated and often expensive hardware. The objective of this study was...
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...
