Hardness is one of the most important factors in water chemistry as it affects fish physiology and metal toxicity. The aim of this study was to investigate osmoregulatory responses in the Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus exposed to copper and cadmium (1.0μg/mL) in soft water (SW) (hardness 80mg CaCO3/L and conductivity 1.77mS/cm) and hard water (HW)(More)
Acoustic radiation force impulse imaging is a kind of shear wave elastography that can be used in children for differentiating thyroid pathologies. Possible changes in the healthy thyroid gland in children may create difficulties in the use of shear wave velocities (SWV) in thyroid pathologies. The aim of this study was to define the normal values of SWV(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to evaluate the shear wave velocity (SWV) of the thyroid gland with acoustic radiation force impulse elastography in children with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D). MATERIALS AND METHODS Between November 2015 and April 2016, 35 T1D patients who were referred to our hospital's endocrinology outpatient clinic (mean age,(More)
Ectopic intrathyroidal thymus is caused by a hesitate in the migration of thymus from the angle of the mandible to the anterior mediastinum during embryogenesis [1]. If misdiagnosed as a thyroid nodule, unnecessary interventions and inappropriate treatment may cause unwanted results [2]. Acoustic radiation force impulse-imaging (ARFI) is a quantitative(More)
Whey protein particles have several applications in modulating food structure and for encapsulation, but there is a lack of methods to prepare particles with a very high internal protein content. In this study whey protein particles with high internal protein content were prepared through emulsification and heat gelation of 25% (w/w) whey protein isolate(More)
Cholesteatoma is a benign epithelial lesion affecting the middle ear and/or mastoid process, causing otorrhea and hearing loss. Here, we retrospectively evaluated the temporal multidetector computed tomography and audiological findings of acquired cholesteatoma in children. Forty-three patients younger than 18 years old with middle ear acquired(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the parenchymal elasticity of the thyroid gland with acoustic radiation force impulse imaging in pediatric patients with Hashimoto thyroiditis and to compare it with healthy volunteers. METHODS Twenty-six patients with Hashimoto thyroiditis and 26 healthy volunteers between 6 and 17 years were included. The shear wave velocity (SWV)(More)
Tracheal diverticulum (DV) is a type of paratracheal air cyst (PTAC) that is often asymptomatic and usually detected incidentally by imaging methods. Tracheal DV are divided into two subgroups: congenital and acquired. Dysphagia, odynophagia, neck pain, hoarseness, hemoptysis, choking, and recurrent episodes of hiccups and burping can also be seen in(More)
