BACKGROUND Mycobacterium leprae infection has recently been detected in wild armadillos in Brazil. Leprosy is still endemic in Brazil and although its transmission is mostly by person-to-person contact, many cases report no history of previously known leprosy contact. It has been suggested that other sources of M. leprae may contribute to the transmission(More)
AIM Assess vascular indices of 7-10 week embryos using three-dimensional power Doppler (3DPD) and correlate them with the crown-rump length (CRL). METHODS This cross-sectional study included 65 healthy pregnancies between 7 and 10 weeks. The three-dimensional volume of the embryo was obtained using an endocavitary volumetric transducer and the VOCAL(More)
We sought to establish normative data for three-dimensional ultrasound (3DUS) first-trimester embryonic volume using the extended imaging virtual organ computer-aided analysis (XI VOCAL) technique. This cross-sectional study involved 64 normal pregnancies at 7 to 10 + 6 weeks' gestation. Embryonic volume was obtained on 3DUS using the XI VOCAL technique(More)
PURPOSE to evaluate the embryo's volume (EV) between the seventh and the tenth gestational week, through tridimensional ultrasonography. METHODS a transversal study with 63 normal pregnant women between the seventh and the tenth gestational week. The ultrasonographical exams have been performed with a volumetric abdominal transducer. Virtual Organ(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare different three-dimensional (3D) methods in the assessment of gestational sac volume (GSV). DESIGN Cross-sectional study involving 74 normal pregnancies between 7 and 11 weeks. SETTING Department of Obstetrics, São Paulo Federal University (UNIFESP). METHODS GSV was measured through 3D ultrasound using the planimetric, virtual(More)
