AIM Until recently, gastric cancer was the most frequent digestive neoplasia in our country. Our study presents the first synthesis of data regarding mortality rates from digestive cancers, for a period covering 50 years, in Romania. METHODS Age-standardized mortality rates /100,000 population, general and/or per gender, concerning six digestive cancers,(More)
AIMS Non-invasive methods are required to diagnose presence and grading of esophageal varices in patients with hepatic cirrhosis and in this respect we have evaluated the role of transient elastography and abdominal ultrasound parameters. MATERIAL AND METHODS Cirrhotic patients were prospectively evaluated by transient elastography and Doppler ultrasound(More)
BACKGROUND Steady and persisting falls in gastric cancer (GC) mortality rates have been observed worldwide in the last 50 years, and in Romania too. Colorectal cancer (CRC) is presently the most frequent digestive neoplasia in the Western countries. An increase of CRC incidence and mortality rates has been reported recently in Eastern European countries,(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate whether there is a correlation between peripheral blood expression of angiogenic transcriptional factors/receptors and colorectal cancer (CRC). METHODS Eighty six blood samples collected from patients with CRC (N=42), adenomas and/or hyperplastic polyps(AP, N=30) and individuals without colon pathology(More)
Adrenal gland ultrasonography is one of the corner stones of the abdominal ultrasonography examination for many medical specialties. The adrenal areas can be easily overlooked though adrenal gland pathology is diverse. We present the normal aspects and various transabdominal ultrasonography findings of the adrenal glands, both common and rare. Even though(More)
Pleural ultrasonography (US) represents nowadays a useful diagnostic tool in the management of pleural diseases. Detection and evaluation of pleural effusions, pneumothorax and pleural-based lesions can be performed with US, which has the advantages of wide availability, low cost, absence of radiation exposure, and portability. It is the best method for(More)
Burkitt's lymphoma is an aggressive B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. It is less common in adults accounting for less than 5% of non-Hodgkin lymphoma cases. Radiological methods (ultrasonography, computed tomography) are indispensable for the initial evaluation and appreciation of organ extension; complete diagnosis is confirmed by the histopathological(More)
AIMS Ultrasound (US) is a highly valuable imagistic tool used to guide numerous interventional procedures. The US guided bone lesions biopsy has not yet received a consensus or a guideline. We aimed to evaluate the evidence to support the US role in guiding bone lesions biopsies. MATERIAL AND METHODS A computer literature search of PubMed was conducted(More)
