  • 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)
  • Clinical
  • [ 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)
  • Anticipated clinical and technological improvements in 3-dimensional ultrasonography and MRI may hopefully depict those changes in the cervical connective structures that are responsible for incompetence. (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)
  • contrast
  • 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.

  • Contrast-enhanced harmonic endoscopic ultrasonography (CH-EUS) is a novel technology which observes both parenchymal perfusion and microvasculature in the pancreas and has been reported to improve characterization of pancreatic cancers from other pancreatic diseases [ 3 , 4 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • 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)
  • 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)
