Variability of Human Papillomavirus DNA Testing in a Longitudinal Cohort of Young Women
TLDR
The data suggest that a portion of women infected with HPV appear to eliminate the infection over a relatively short period and are at low or no risk of developing disease.
The use of ultrasound to study the prevalence of hydatid cysts in the right lung and liver of sheep and goats in Turkana, Kenya.
Ultrasound examination of the liver and right lung was performed in 260 sheep and 320 goats from the Turkana district of Kenya. Hydatid cysts were visualized in 9.2% of the sheep and 2.5% of the
Evaluation of diagnostic ultrasound as a mass screening technique for the detection of hydatid cysts in the liver and lung of sheep and goats.
TLDR
The sensitivity and specificity of ultrasound examination for detecting hydatid cysts in sheep and goats was 54.36% and 97.64%, respectively.
Ultrasound diagnosis of fibroadenoma - is biopsy always necessary?
TLDR
The majority of patients in the 25 years and under age group have benign breast pathology, most commonly fibroadenoma, and it is proposed that a palpable lump that has the ultrasound characteristics entirely consistent with a fib Roadenoma need not be biopsy unless there is overriding clinical concern.
Colposcopic and histologic findings and human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA test variability in young women positive for HPV DNA.
TLDR
It is concluded that the minority of women positive for HPV DNA have latent infection and variability in detection is common and unrelated to the presence of HPV-related disease.
Comparison between colposcopic, cytologic, and histologic findings in women positive and negative for human papillomavirus DNA.
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to compare the colposcopic findings of young women who were positive and negative for HPV DNA, and all four women who had dysplasia either on cytology or histology were positive for type 16/18.
A comparison of the cytology of endomyocardial biopsy washings from heart transplants with biopsy histologic study and peripheral blood lymphocyte counts.
TLDR
Although the recovery of a lymphocytic cytospin was specific for rejection, the sensitivity of the test was poor and this method of biopsy washings will predict only one third of cases of significant acute rejection (grade 2 or worse).
