The objective of this academic research is to assess the efficacy of conventional endorectal ultrasound (ERUS), ultrasonic shear wave elastography (SWE), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques in evaluating the impact of neoadjuvant therapy (nCRT). Forty-five patients with advanced low rectal cancer (T ≥ 3) were included. Before and after nCRT, ERUS, SWE, and MRI evaluations were conducted. The T staging of ultrasound (uT) and MRI (mT) were evaluated and compared with the pathological T staging (ypT)...

Ultrasound-targeted microbubble destruction (UTMD) technology combines ultrasound with a variety of functional microbubble vectors to enhance the transfection and expression of target genes, and has become a promising noninvasive method for localized gene transfer, which is widely used in gene therapy for cancer. This research aimed to explore the role of UTMD-mediated miR-145-5p on breast cancer (BC) tumorigenesis and the underlying mechanisms. To achieve UTMD-mediated miR-145-5p overexpression, BC cells were cotransfected with microbubbles (MBs) and miR-145-5p mimics...

OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to predict these stages of hepatic fibrosis and necroinflammation using measurements from two-dimensional shear wave elastography (2D-SWE), transient elastography (Fibroscan, TE), and shear wave dispersion (SWD). MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this prospectively designed study, chronic liver patients with nonspecific etiology whose biopsy was performed for up to 1 week were included. Two-dimensional SWE, SWD, and TE measurements were performed...

Transient elastography (TE) and point shear wave elastography (pSWE) are 2 elastographic ultrasound examinations used in liver stiffness (LS) measurement. It was shown that the LS value detected by TE in pediatric β-thalassemia major patients has increased, and there was no LS evaluation obtained with pSWE in literature. Thus, in this study, it was aimed to evaluate LS with pSWE examination in children with thalassemia major and to determine LS-related parameters in these patients. Sixty-three schoolchildren with a diagnosis of β-thalassemia major and 21 healthy controls between the ages of 7 and 18 years were included...

This study aimed to evaluate the clinical value of automated breast volume scanner (ABVS) compared with hand-held ultrasound (HHUS). From January 2015 to May 2019, a total of 912 breast lesions in 725 consecutive patients were included in this study. κ statistics were calculated to identify interobserver agreement of ABVS and HHUS. The diagnostic performance for ABVS and HHUS was expressed as the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve, as well as the corresponding 95% confidence interval, sensitivity, and specificity...

The aim of our study was to compare the placental elasticity values between normal pregnancies and preeclamptic pregnancies and evaluate the utility of shear-wave elastography of the placenta as a predictor for preeclampsia in high-risk pregnancy. A prospective study was performed with 90 singleton high-risk pregnancies having any of the 7 risk factors for developing preeclampsia (primigravida, history of preeclampsia, family history of preeclampsia, history of pregestational diabetes, chronic hypertension, advanced maternal age [≥40 years], and body mass index ≥26 kg/m2) were enrolled in the study...

Patients with compensated advanced chronic liver disease (cACLD) can safely spared screening esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) when they meet the Baveno VI criteria as assessed by transient elastography. Recently, the cutoff values of the Baveno VI criteria assessed by 2-dimensional shear wave elastography (2D-SWE) were proposed. We aimed to validate it to rule out high-risk varices (HRVs) in cACLD patients; combine spleen diameter (SPD) with the Baveno VI criteria and assess whether it can spare more screening EGD...

This study aimed to assess the detection rate of small (<10 mm) pancreas cyst and intrareader reliability for cyst size measurements on transabdominal ultrasonography (US). From 2020 to 2022, 194 pancreas cysts in 173 patients, incidentally detected on computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging, were evaluated on US by 1 of 2 radiologists (readers 1 and 2). Intrareader agreements of cyst size measurements on US were assessed by intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC). Bland-Altman plot was used to visualize the differences between the first and second size measurements in each reader...

Fetal anomalies suspected on fetal ultrasound may cause significant stress for patients. Some findings resolve or have minimal clinical significance for the neonate. Our purpose is to evaluate fetal ultrasound accuracy and false-positive results and determine the clinical impact on maternal counseling. A retrospective review was performed on electronic medical records for women receiving prenatal care at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center who had abnormal findings on fetal ultrasounds between January 2015 and December 2018...

High-frequency ultrasound is the imaging modality of choice for evaluating penile pathology because of its easy access, low cost, and patient tolerance (The Penis, Diagnostic Ultrasound, second edtion. Boca Raton: CRC Press; 2007:957-978). This pictorial review will illustrate the sonographic features of emergent and nonemergent penile conditions such as penile fracture, spongial tear, urethral injury, various types of priapism, erectile dysfunction, penile abscess, and Mondor disease.

Percutaneous core-needle biopsy (PCNB) plays a growing and essential role in many medical specialties. Proper and effective use of various PCNB devices requires basic understanding of how they function. Current literature lacks a detailed overview and illustration of needle function and design differences, a potentially valuable reference for users ranging from early trainees to experts who are less familiar with certain devices. This pictorial aims to provide such an overview, using diagrams and magnified photographs to illustrate the intricate components of these devices...

The right ventricular fetal tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion index (FTI) can be used to evaluate right ventricular systolic function. The purpose of this study was to establish the reference range of the FTI in normal fetuses and evaluate its diagnostic value in hypertensive disorders during pregnancy. In this prospective observational study, the right ventricular FTI was measured in 208 normal single-gestation fetuses between 20 and 40 weeks. With the increase in gestational age, the right ventricular FTI did not significantly fluctuate...

This study aims to evaluate the role of shearwave elastography (SWE) and superb microvascular imaging (SMI) for preoperative prediction of axillary lymph node metastasis (ALNM) in patients with breast cancer. In a cohort of 214 women with breast cancer, B-Mode ultrasonography (US), SMIvascular-index (SMIvi), and SWE (E-mean, E-ratio) values were recorded before tru-cut biopsy. Axillary fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) and sentinel lymph node sampling results were collected. Imaging findings and histopathological data were statistically compared...

Estimated fetal weight (EFW) is frequently used for clinical decision-making in obstetrics. The goals of this study were to determine the accuracy of EFW assessments by Leopold and ultrasound and to investigate any associations with maternal characteristics. Postgraduate years 1 and 2 obstetrics and gynecology resident physicians from Harbor-UCLA Medical Center from 2014 to 2020 performed EFW assessments on 10 preterm (<37 weeks' gestational age) fetuses by ultrasound biometry and 10 full-term (≥37 weeks' gestational age) fetuses by ultrasound biometry and Leopold maneuver...
