With the recent FDA approval for characterization of focal liver lesions (FLL) in both pediatric and adult patients using Lumason (sulfur hexafluoride microbubbles), increased use of ultrasound contrast for routine clinical use is expected. This…

Purpose: The objective of this study was to evaluate electronic beam steering to improve needle visualization. Methods: Various needles ranging from 27 to 12 gauge were evaluated with a modified CX50 (Philips Ultrasound, Bothell, Wash) using a 12-MHz…

There is a large body of published material that supports the use of elastography, both strain and shear wave, for characterization of breast lesions. To a lesser extent, elastography can be used in the detection of breast abnormalities. This article…

Breast elastography is a new sonographic technique that provides additional characterization information on breast lesions over conventional sonography and mammography. This technique provides information on the strain or hardness of a lesion,…

Objectives-The purpose of this study was to determine the sensitivity and specificity of real-time compression elasticity imaging in characterizing breast lesions as benign or malignant. Methods-A cohort of 578 women scheduled for sonographically…

Objective. Both sonography and scintigraphy have been used to evaluate gallbladder function with the use of sincalide (cholecystokinin [CCK]). However, the reported ejection fractions (EFs) for the two modalities are not the same. The techniques…

Purpose: The objectives of the study were to evaluate the accuracy of the "bull's-eye" artifact of elasticity imaging (EI) in determining the benignity of cystic breast lesions and to determine the utility of such artifact in reducing the biopsy rate…

Objective Strain ratio (SR) is a semiquantitative parameter in differentiating benign from malignant tumors in breast ultrasound elastography. Currently, SR is computed manually and, thus, user dependent. The objective of this study was to evaluate…

This multidisciplinary update of the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound consensus statement on liver elastography incorporates the large volume of new information available in the literature since the initial publication. The recommended procedure…

The Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound convened a panel of specialists from radiology, hepatology, pathology, and basic science and physics to arrive at a consensus regarding the use of elastography in the assessment of liver fibrosis in chronic…

PURPOSE: To determine whether addition of quality measure (QM) of shear-wave (SW) velocity (Vs) estimation can increase SW elastography sensitivity for breast cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: With written informed consent, this institutional review…

OBJECTIVE. We sought to compare image quality, contrast enhancement, and radiation dose in patients undergoing ECG-triggered high-pitch helical CT or non-ECG-synchronized helical CT of the thoracoabdominal aorta. MATERIALS AND METHODS. We…

Aortic pseudocoarctation is a congenital abnormality consisting of an elongated aortic arch with a kink at level of the isthmus. However, unlike coarctation, significant flow obstruction is not associated with pseudocoarctation, although there is an…

Calciphylaxis is a deadly disease that is currently diagnosed through a skin biopsy of resultant necrotic lesions despite many cases lacking this characteristic finding. Recently, research has demonstrated the ability of various radiologic …

PURPOSE: High-dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy boost in prostate cancer allows dose escalation and delivery of higher biologically effective dose (BED). We evaluated the outcomes of intensitymodulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and HDR boost in a…

Purpose: To prospectively evaluate the performance of real-time ultrasonographic (US) shear-wave elastography (SWE) in the diagnosis of peripheral zone prostate cancer in patients with high and/or increasing prostate-specific antigen levels and/or…

Objectives-The purpose of this study was to determine whether the elasticity imaging/B-mode ratio on strain elastography can predict breast cancer tumor grades. Methods-A retrospective review of patients with breast lesions who underwent strain…
