Statistical analysis of the data revealed the following: (1) Moving two-point values were of lesser magnitude than stationary two-point values(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate how the approximate Young's modulus of the uterine cervix assessed by quantitative sonoelastography in patients undergoing induction of labor is associated with the cervical dilation time and to evaluate the approximate Young's modulus as a predictor of prolonged cervical dilation time. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. SETTING Aarhus(More)
The MUSA (Morphological Uterus Sonographic Assessment) statement is a consensus statement on terms, definitions and measurements that may be used to describe and report the sonographic features of the myometrium using gray-scale sonography, color/power Doppler and three-dimensional ultrasound imaging. The terms and definitions described may form the basis(More)
OBJECTIVES To describe the junctional zone and determine the intraobserver and interobserver repeatability of junctional zone measurements using 3-dimensional (3D) transvaginal sonography in healthy fertile women. METHODS We examined 82 consecutive women with 3D transvaginal sonography. The maximum and minimum junctional zone thickness was measured in all(More)
