Interest of HI-RTE Elasticity in Obstetric

2014-08-27 03:17:17 | BioPortfolio


In obstetric, the investigators can't predict accurately with current means (BISHOP score, traditional cervix ultrasonography and fibronectin) the childbirth time and delay.

If ultrasonography can determine the length, the cervix opening, it can't define its flexibility. Indeed, the conventional cervix ultrasonography can't inform us about the consistency of the uterine cervix.

The elastography (elasticity imagery) is an innovating technology. It is a new technology currently used as part of breast cancer estimate. This diagnosis mean use the ultrasonography to measure the tissues answer under pressure.

Its contribution in obstetric must be estimated to improve patients minimum fare.

The main target of the investigators study is to estimate the interest of the measure of cervix elasticity degree by elastography in prediction of premature birth within a population of pregnant women

This study aims to provide the information of tissue elasticity in different etiologies of pulmonary lesions and to validate the predictive value of shear-wave elastography in differentiat...

Elastography in Thyroid Nodules

Nodular goiter is a highly prevalent disease in iodine-deficient areas. Usually nodule assessment includes ultrasonography (US) and fine-needle aspiration (FNA), but some benign nodules ca...

Quantitative Assessment of Palatine Tonsils in Healthy Children and Adolescents With Shear-Wave Elastography.

The normal elasticity and velocity values for palatine tonsils (PTs) in healthy children and adolescents were defined using shear wave elastography, and the relationship with potential factors affecti...

Determination of Normal Breast and Areolar Skin Elasticity Using Shear Wave Elastography.

In this study, we aimed to determine reference values for normal breast and areolar skin elasticity using shear wave elastography.

Towards quantitative quasi-static ultrasound elastography using a reference layer for liver imaging application: A preliminary assessment.

Changes in tissue elasticity are generally correlated with pathological phenomena. For example, diffuse liver disease progressively reduces the elasticity of the liver. Quasi-static elastography is po...

Liver elasticity in healthy individuals by two novel shear-wave elastography systems-Comparison by age, gender, BMI and number of measurements.

Establishing normal liver stiffness (LS) values in healthy livers is a prerequisite to differentiate normal from pathological LS values. Our aim was to define normal LS using two novel elastography me...

Interobserver variability and stiffness measurements of normal common extensor tendon in healthy volunteers using shear wave elastography.

The purposes of our study are to determine the quantitative elasticity values of normal common extensor tendon (CET) and to assess the interobserver variability of stiffness measurements using shear w...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Onset of OBSTETRIC LABOR before term (TERM BIRTH) but usually after the FETUS has become viable. In humans, it occurs sometime during the 29th through 38th week of PREGNANCY. TOCOLYSIS inhibits premature labor and can prevent the BIRTH of premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE).

The use of mental images produced by the imagination as a form of psychotherapy. It can be classified by the modality of its content: visual, verbal, auditory, olfactory, tactile, gustatory, or kinesthetic. Common themes derive from nature imagery (e.g., forests and mountains), water imagery (e.g., brooks and oceans), travel imagery, etc. Imagery is used in the treatment of mental disorders and in helping patients cope with other diseases. Imagery often forms a part of HYPNOSIS, of AUTOGENIC TRAINING, of RELAXATION TECHNIQUES, and of BEHAVIOR THERAPY. (From Encyclopedia of Human Behavior, vol. 4, pp29-30, 1994)

A type of cardiac arrhythmia with premature contractions of the HEART VENTRICLES. It is characterized by the premature QRS complex on ECG that is of abnormal shape and great duration (generally >129 msec). It is the most common form of all cardiac arrhythmias. Premature ventricular complexes have no clinical significance except in concurrence with heart diseases.

The premature cessation of menses (MENSTRUATION) when the last menstrual period occurs in a woman under the age of 40. It is due to the depletion of OVARIAN FOLLICLES. Premature MENOPAUSE can be caused by diseases; OVARIECTOMY; RADIATION; chemicals; and chromosomal abnormalities.

A type of cardiac arrhythmia with premature atrial contractions or beats caused by signals originating from ectopic atrial sites. The ectopic signals may or may not conduct to the HEART VENTRICLES. Atrial premature complexes are characterized by premature P waves on ECG which are different in configuration from the P waves generated by the normal pacemaker complex in the SINOATRIAL NODE.
