Application of ultrasound multimodal score in the assessment of endometrial receptivity in patients with artificial abortion

This study aimed to evaluate the value and feasibility of ultrasound multimodal score in the evaluation of endometrial receptivity in patients with artificial abortion (AA).MethodsSixty-eight patients with AA (AA group) and 70 women of the childbearing age without any history of abortion (control group) were recruited between January 2018 and December 2018. All subjects received the examination of endometrium in the middle luteum phase (7 –9 days after ovulation) with two-dimensional gray-scale ultrasound, two-dimensional color Doppler ultrasound, and three-dimensional ultrasound, and the quantitative scores were obtained and compared between two groups.ResultsThe quantitative score of endometrial receptivity was 10.46  ± 2.99 in the AA group and 13.49 ± 2.21 in the control group showing significant difference (p

In this retrospective study, tissue acquisition per pass was compared between 22-gauge Franseen FNB and standard fine needle aspiration (FNA) needles in patients with solid pancreatic lesions. Methods: Consecutive patients who underwent EUS-FNA or EUS-FNB for solid pancreatic...

Accurate monitoring of physiological temperature is important for many biomedical applications, including monitoring of core body temperature, detecting tissue pathologies, and evaluating surgical procedures involving thermal treatment such as hyperthermia therapy and tissue ablation. Many of these applications can benefit from replacing external temperature probes with injectable wireless devices. Here we present such a device for real-time in vivo temperature monitoring that relies on “chip-as-system” integration. With an on-chip piezoelectric transducer and measuring only 380 μm × 300 μm × ...

Ultrasound (US) imaging systems typically employ a single beamforming scheme which is the delay and sum (DAS) beamforming due to its reduced complexity. However, DAS results in images with limited resolution and contrast. The limitations of DAS have been overcome by, delay multiply and sum (DMAS) beamforming, making it especially preferable in cases where finer image details are required in larger depth of scans for an accurate diagnosis. But, DMAS is confined to transducer frequencies where the generated harmonics also fall in the processable frequency range of the US system. However, if US systems could provide the flexi...

Purpose of review Enthesitis is a hallmark feature of the spondyloarthropathies (SpA). This review provides an overview of recent insights on diagnosis and management of enthesitis. Recent findings Recent studies support the use of imaging for diagnosis because of its higher sensitivity and specificity compared with clinical examination. Several new MRI and ultrasound scoring systems have been developed for enthesitis, which may facilitate the use of imaging in research. Enthesitis has been evaluated as a primary study outcome mainly in psoriatic arthritis (PsA); however, the use of different indices and definitions o...

AbstractFelty ’s syndrome (FS) is a deforming disease, characterized by the triad of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), neutropenia, and splenomegaly. Currently, FS patients are treated mainly with immunosuppressants, such as methotrexate and glucocorticoids, which however are not suitable to some patients and may caus e severe side effects. Here we report a clinical FS case that was treated with Tocilizumab (TCZ) successfully. The patient had symmetrical swelling and pain of multiple joints, deformity of elbow joints with obvious morning stiffness. Joint color Doppler ultrasound showed synovial hyperplasia and bo ne erosion...

AbstractWe aimed to identify predictors of inadequate response to glucocorticoid (GC) treatment in patients with polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR). We retrospectively studied 32 patients as a derivation cohort and 24 patients as a validation cohort. The patients were divided into two groups according to the response to GC treatment: GC-responders and GC-inadequate responders (GC-IRs). We compared laboratory data and bilateral shoulder ultrasound findings between the groups. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis was performed to determine the optimal cutoff value of candidate predictors of treatment response; the pred...

i S Abstract Ultrasound of the Shoulder (Adapted According to SGUM Guidelines) Abstract. This review paper explains the simplified ultrasound anatomy of the shoulder. The adapted basic standard planes are described in detail according to SGUM guidelines and illustrated with a selection of high-resolution ultrasound images. A profound knowledge of the sonographic anatomy is essential for the detection of pathologies. PMID: 32456588 [PubMed - in process]

The aim was to assess grey-scale intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and virtual histology (VH-IVUS) characteristics of culprit lesion in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).Methods: A total of 295 consecutive patients with STEMI underwent coronary angiogram and IVUS. Following PCI, patients divided into two groups; SF (thrombolysis in myocard...
