  • Image Processing Pipeline for Liver Fibrosis Classification Using Ultrasound Shear Wave Elastography. [Journal Article]
    Ultrasound Med Biol. 2020 Jul 02 [Online ahead of print]Brattain LJ, Ozturk A, … Samir AE
  • The purpose of this study was to develop an automated method for classifying liver fibrosis stage ≥F2 based on ultrasound shear wave elastography (SWE) and to assess the system's performance in comparison with a reference manual approach. The reference approach consists of manually selecting a region of interest from each of eight or more SWE images, computing the mean tissue stiffness within eac…
  • Fighting liver fat. [Review]
    Endocr Connect. 2020 Jul 01 [Online ahead of print]Koeckerling D, Tomlinson JW, Cobbold J
  • Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is a chronic liver disease which is closely associated with components of the metabolic syndrome. Its high clinical burden results from the growing prevalence, inherent cardiometabolic risk and potential of progressing to cirrhosis. Patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease show variable rates of disease progression through a histological spectrum ranging f…
  • Vascular Shear Wave Elastography in Atherosclerotic Arteries: A Systematic Review. [Review]
    Ultrasound Med Biol. 2020 Jun 30 [Online ahead of print]Pruijssen JT, de Korte CL, … Hansen HHG
  • Ischemic stroke is a leading cause of death and disability worldwide, so adequate prevention strategies are crucial. However, current stroke risk stratification is based on epidemiologic studies and is still suboptimal for individual patients. The aim of this systematic review was to provide a literature overview on the feasibility and diagnostic value of vascular shear wave elastography (SWE) us…
  • Multiparametric Ultrasound of Nonpalpable Focal Testicular Lesions. [Journal Article]
    Semin Ultrasound CT MR. 2020 Aug; 41(4):402-408.Withey SJ, Horsfield CJ, Prezzi D
  • Indeterminate nonpalpable focal testicular lesions have emerged as a clinical problem with the increasing use of scrotal ultrasound, particularly in the context of infertility. Conventional morphological ultrasound and color Doppler have been unreliable at differentiating benign from malignant lesions. Multiparametric ultrasound (mpUS) comprises real-time elastography and contrast-enhanced ultras…
  • Importance of shear-wave elastography in prediction of Achilles tendon rupture. [Journal Article]
    Int Orthop. 2020 Jun 29 [Online ahead of print]Ivanac G, Lemac D, … Brkljacic B
  • CONCLUSIONS: Irrespective of the lack of difference in the subjective feeling assessed by AOFAS, the contralateral tendon in the patients with reconstructed Achilles tendon has significantly lower stiffness than healthy individuals. Therefore, contralateral tendons in patients who suffered from rupture are more prone to future ruptures.
  • Ultrasonography of vulnerable atherosclerotic plaque in the carotid arteries: B-mode imaging. [Journal Article]
    J Ultrason. 2020; 20(81):e135-e145.Fedak A, Ciuk K, Urbanik A
  • The most common type of stroke, i.e. ischemic stroke, is a great challenge for contemporary medicine as it poses both diagnostic and therapeutic difficulties. Atherosclerosis, which is rapidly beginning to affect more and more social groups, is the main cause of cerebrovascular accidents. Atherosclerosis is currently defined as a generalized, dynamic and heterogeneous inflammatory and immune proc…
  • Ultrasound Shear Wave Velocity Varies Across Anatomical Region in Ex Vivo Bovine Ovaries. [Journal Article]
    Tissue Eng Part A. 2020 Jun 30 [Online ahead of print]Gargus ES, Jakubowski KL, … Woodruff TK
  • The physical properties of the ovarian extracellular matrix (ECM) regulate the function of ovarian cells, specifically the ability of the ovary to maintain a quiescent primordial follicle pool while allowing a subset of follicles to grow and mature in the estrous cycle. Design of a long-term, cycling artificial ovary has been hindered by the limited information regarding the mechanical properties…
  • Assessment of diaphragmatic function by ultrasonography: Current approach and perspectives. [Review]
    World J Clin Cases. 2020 Jun 26; 8(12):2408-2424.Boussuges A, Rives S, … Brégeon F
  • This article reports the various methods used to assess diaphragmatic function by ultrasonography. The excursions of the two hemidiaphragms can be measured using two-dimensional or M-mode ultrasonography, during respiratory maneuvers such as quiet breathing, voluntary sniffing and deep inspiration. On the zone of apposition to the rib cage for both hemidiaphragms, it is possible to measure the th…
  • Speckle-Tracking Echocardiography in Cardio-Oncology and Beyond. [Journal Article]
    Tex Heart Inst J. 2020 Apr 01; 47(2):96-107.Quintana RA, Bui LP, … Banchs J
  • Speckle-tracking echocardiography has enabled clinicians to detect changes in myocardial function with more sensitivity than that afforded by traditional diastolic and systolic functional measurements, including left ventricular ejection fraction. Speckle-tracking echocardiography enables evaluation of myocardial strain in terms of strain (percent change in length of a myocardial segment relative…
  • [Evaluation of the effectiveness of ultrasound shear elastography and liver steatometry]. [Journal Article]
    Ter Arkh. 2020 May 19; 92(4):17-22.Tarasova OI, Kuhareva EI, … Ogurtsov PP
  • CONCLUSIONS: Results obtained in all groups correlate with the data obtained in studies on Fibroscan. When working with system Angiodin we got a simultaneous comparative analysis of elasticity with the results of liver steatosis. Results appear to be much more stable and compact than those obtained in studies on the Fibroscan. A new diagnostic criterion was revealed the phenomenon of independence of fibrosis and steatosis indices.
