The purpose of this study is to determine the usefulness of contrast in ultrasonography of the joints.
To determine if using intra-articular contrast (substance injected into a joint) will provide clearer, more precise ultrasound images of the joints then an ultrasound done without the use of a contrast agent.

The purpose of this study is to see if the investigators can use ultrasound imaging to determine the type of clots in patients to help better manage their care.
The purpose of this study is to determine how well changes can be determined in malignant masses from ultrasound scans.
Objective: To compare 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional ultrasound measurements with the actual myomas volume after surgical removal, to clinically test the validity and usability of 3D ultr...
This study evaluates the use of ultrasound simulators for retaining and improving ultrasound skills acquired in undergraduate ultrasound training.
Ultrasound elastography is an emerging imaging technique that provides an objective method to assess the relative or absolute stiffness of soft tissues. The authors have not found any description in t...
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...
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...
Ultrasound assessment of the kidneys in patients with renal impairment has been described in various ways in the critical care, nephrology, and radiology literature, resulting in a somewhat heterogene...
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.

Use of ultrasound to increase the percutaneous adsorption of drugs.
Arthritis Fibromyalgia Gout Lupus Rheumatic Rheumatology is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and management of disease involving joints, tendons, muscles, ligaments and associated structures (Oxford Medical Diction...
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...
