Objectives: The BI-RADS© classification provides a standardized way to describe ultrasound findings in breast cancer diagnostics. However, there is little information regarding which BI-RADS© descriptors are most strongly associated with malignancy,…

Ultrasound is very effective in performing procedures and assessment of complications in peritoneal dialysis. The ultrasound examination can be applied for preoperative assessment, during the peritoneal catheter placement, for the detection and…

BACKGROUND: ultrasound-based shear wave elastography (SWE) can non-invasively assess prostate tissue stiffness. This systematic review aims to evaluate SWE for the detection of prostate cancer (PCa) and compare diagnostic estimates between studies …

Objective: The Hartley guinea pig develops articular cartilage degeneration similar to that seen in idiopathic human osteoarthritis (OA). We investigated whether the application of pulsed low-intensity ultrasound (PLIUS) to the Hartley guinea pig…

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…

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 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…

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…

Minimizing margin re-excision optimizes patient care by providing appropriate oncologic resection and reducing costs. This study aims to assess margin positivity rate in two groups: shave margin based on gross specimen (control group, CG) vs shave…

Tissue stiffness assessed by palpation for diagnosing pathology has been used for thousands of years. Ultrasound elastography has been developed more recently to display similar information on tissue stiffness as an image. There are two main types of…

Distinguishing malignant versus benign lymphadenopathies is a major diagnostic dilemma in clinical medicine. Metastatic deposits in normal-sized lymph nodes (LNs) can be smaller than a millimeter, thus presenting a diagnostic challenge. In most…

Although contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) has become a widely utilized and accepted modality in much of the world, the associated contrast agents have only recently received approval in the United States. As with all radiological techniques, image…

BACKGROUND: Ultrasonography is considered the most appropriate initial imaging study in the evaluation of acute appendicitis in children but has recently come under criticism with reports of low specificity and high indeterminate study rates,…
