Hepatic and renal lesions detected during ultrasound examinations frequently require subsequent contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for characterization, delaying time to imaging diagnosis and increasing overall health care expenditures....
The aims of this study were to determine the change of interstitial fluid pressure (IFP) after therapy using pulsed low-frequency ultrasound combined with microbubbles and to determine the change of doxorubicin penetration in VX2 tumor. In this study, all 48 tumor-bearing rabbits were...
This review describes techniques for sonographic evaluation of the brachial plexus and multiple regional nerve branches in the neck, essential for successful implementation of neurosonology in the neck. High-frequency ultrasound transducers have the ability to produce superior,...
This study aimed to visualize sciatic nerve injury in rats using ultrasound imaging in a crushed injury model.
Adult male Sprague-Dawley rats were subjected to a left sciatic nerve crush operation. Then, high-frequency ultrasound was used to image both sciatic nerves at 2...
Piriformis syndrome is a common cause of lumbar, gluteal, and thigh pain, frequently associated with sciatic nerve symptoms. Potential etiologies include muscle injury or chronic muscle stretching associated with gait disturbances. There is a common pathological end pathway involving...
Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is still a common and important disorder of childhood, with a prevalence of 0.1 to 2/1000 children. Using ultrasonography (US) in screening of DDH reduces the rates of open reductions and complications. In the current study, we aim to detect...
We introduce an ergonomic positioning for sonographic scanning of elbow joint where the patient is lying semisupine on the examination bed. This is in contrast with the conventional positioning where the patient is sitting on the edge of the bed or across the table on a chair. Our...
Patients with vitamin D deficiency (VDD) have potential to have increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. In this study, we aimed to discover the findings of early atherosclerosis in patients with VDD by measuring carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) and epicardial fat...
The aim of our study was to investigate the efficiency and feasibility of shear-wave elastography (sound touch elastography [STE], sound touch quantification [STQ]) compared with transient elastography (FibroScan) assessment in noninvasively and quantitatively identifying the degree of...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the reproducibility of measurement of spleen stiffness at the time of the initial detection of splenomegaly, whether it is found incidentally or not, in determining the etiology of splenomegaly.
The pathologies that brought about the...
