  • Nomenclature
  • In 2001, an expert consensus committee was commissioned by the American College of Cardiology, in collaboration with the European Society of Cardiology, to provide a framework for standardization of nomenclature, methods of measurement, and reporting of intravascular ultrasonography results. (medscape.com)
  • Procedures
  • Endobronchial Ultrasonography covers all of the standard techniques and the new developments involved in EBUS as it combines two common procedures, bronchoscopy and real-time ultrasonography. (worldcat.org)
  • This practical guide to the use of EBUS to diagnose and stage lung cancer and the variety of different tumours of the chest region covers all of the standard techniques and the new developments involved in EBUS, as it combines two common procedures -- bronchoscopy and real-time ultrasonography. (worldcat.org)
  • procedural
  • In their appraisal of intravascular ultrasonography and its application in routine angioplasty, Oxford et al have noted that intravascular ultrasonography is better than contrast angiography in key procedural variables, such as measurement of postdeployment stent dimensions, confirming complete stent apposition, and excluding edge dissections that may predispose to both early and late complications, including in-stent restenosis. (medscape.com)
  • clinical
  • Thyroid ultrasonography is an important element of clinical thyroid diagnostics. (nature.com)
  • [ 11 ] Although no clinical outcome benefits with routine use of intravascular ultrasonography was demonstrated, a more effective stent expansion compared with angiographic guidance alone was noted. (medscape.com)
  • pulmonary
  • Ultrasonography in suspected deep vein thrombosis focuses primarily on the femoral vein and the popliteal vein, because thrombi in these veins are associated with the greatest risk of harmful pulmonary embolism. (wikipedia.org)
  • spleen
  • However, because spleen size varies greatly, ultrasonography is not a valid technique for assessing spleen enlargement and should not be used in typical circumstances or to make routine decisions about fitness for playing sports. (wikipedia.org)
  • thyroid
  • Between 2000 and 2012, although the incidence of thyroid cancer doubled, there was a nearly 5-fold increase in the use of thyroid ultrasonography and a 7-fold increase in thyroid FNA. (medscape.com)
  • allows
  • B-mode ultrasonography allows shows the texture and tissue borders as black and white pictures. (medscape.com)
  • 1. Pleural ultrasonography with evaluation, quantification and aspiration of pleural effusion allows for improved pre-operative staging and alters decision-making patterns for lung cancer patients. (bioportfolio.com)
  • primarily
  • Technical aspects of musculoskeletal ultrasonography, the validity and reliability of image acquisition, and interpretation in rheumatic disorders, primarily in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, are addressed in detail separately. (uptodate.com)
  • For the musculoskeletal ultrasonographer, the selection of anatomic structures to image and the planes in which two-dimensional ultrasonography (US) is performed is primarily complaint-driven. (uptodate.com)
  • requires
  • Lastly, ultrasonography requires a window that is unimpeded by bone or air, limiting the type of evaluations it offers, when compared with CT scanning or MRI. (medscape.com)
