  • The aim of the present study was to quantify the stiffness of the median nerve (MN) at the carpal tunnel inlet by acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) elastography and to evaluate whether ARFI can be used in diagnosis and staging of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). (readbyqxmd.com)

  • The 13 patients studied, which included a combination of patients having an initial diagnostic workup or who were receiving follow-up treatment for pSS, had ARFI elastometry performed in conjunction with conventional ultrasound exams. (appliedradiology.com)

  • Any of these conditions that occurs in a family can indicate a diagnosis of Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome, though it is only confirmed by a genetic test for a mutation in the FLCN gene, which codes for the protein folliculin. (wikipedia.org)
  • Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome can manifest similarly to other diseases, which must be ruled out when making a diagnosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • examinations
  • Siemens, Germany)) was performed in the renal cortex of 528 healthy kidneys using a 1-6 MHz convex and a 4-9 MHz linear ultrasound probe in ventrolateral and dorsal examinations. (readbyqxmd.com)
  • In recent times, armed with a better understanding of the occurrences and observable features of this condition, surgeons are increasingly depending upon pre-operative ultrasonography along with Fine-needle aspiration cytological (FNAC) examinations to make an accurate presumptive diagnosis, and according to one estimate, about 44% of patients undergoing submandibular resection are found to have this condition. (wikipedia.org)
  • Disorders
  • SS is associated with a number of other medical conditions, many of which are autoimmune or rheumatic disorders, such as celiac disease, fibromyalgia, SLE (lupus), autoimmune thyroiditis, multiple sclerosis and spondyloarthropathy, and several malignancies, principally non-Hodgkin lymphoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissue
  • Eventual periductal and interlobular (inside the gland) sclerosis (replacement of regular tissue with hard connective tissue). (wikipedia.org)
  • lesions
  • These include tuberous sclerosis, which causes skin lesions similar to fibrofolliculomas, and Von Hippel-Lindau disease, which causes hereditary kidney cancers. (wikipedia.org)
  • fibrosis
  • We found fibrosis in 7 patients (26.9%), and these patients were not different when compared to the group without it, regarding the RTS global score, B-mode global score, age and chemokine and cytokines levels, but tended to have a longer disease duration. (bmj.com)
  • underwent
  • We performed a retrospective chart review of patients who were found to have Cushing disease and who underwent transnasal transsphenoidal surgery for pituitary adenomas between January 1, 2007, and July 1, 2014, at a tertiary academic medical center. (readbyqxmd.com)
  • obstruction
  • Swelling of the gland, also usually intermittent, often suddenly appearing or increasing before mealtimes, and then slowly going down (partial obstruction). (wikipedia.org)
  • novel
  • This novel autoantibody is highly specific in the diagnosis of sSS, and the underlying molecular mechanism of the disease might be epitope spreading involved with vimentin. (sclero.org)
  • Facial
  • Some authors have reported excellent sensitivity with ultrasonography, though this study typically does not help the surgeon to understand the 3-dimensional (3D) relationship of the tumor to the parotid gland and the facial nerve. (medscape.com)
