The clinical part of these Guidelines and Recommendations produced under the auspices of the European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology EFSUMB assesses the clinically used applications of all forms of elastography, stressing the evidence from meta-analyses and giving practical advice for their uses and interpretation. Diffuse(More)
The technical part of these Guidelines and Recommendations, produced under the auspices of EFSUMB, provides an introduction to the physical principles and technology on which all forms of current commercially available ultrasound elastography are based. A difference in shear modulus is the common underlying physical mechanism that provides tissue contrast(More)
Real-time elastography is a method for visualization of the elastic properties of soft tissue and may potentially enable differentiation between malignant and benign pathologic lesions. Our aim was to validate the method on a tissue-mimicking (TM) phantom and to evaluate the influence of different scanning parameters and investigator variability. A(More)
The fifth section of the Guidelines on Interventional Ultrasound (INVUS) of the European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (EFSUMB) assesses the evidence for all the categories of endoscopic ultrasound-guided treatment reported to date. Celiac plexus neurolysis and block, vascular intervention, drainage of fluid collections,(More)
The purpose of this study was to develop a sonographic method to monitor postprandial size of the proximal stomach. Twenty-three healthy persons were scanned in a sitting position with a 3.25 MHz transducer after ingestion of 500 ml meat soup. The area in a sagittal section and the maximal diameter in an oblique frontal section were chosen as standard(More)
In an outbreak of waterborne giardiasis where 1300 subjects were diagnosed, with Giardia lamblia, 139 continued to have abdominal symptoms of whom two of three had negative stool culture and microscopy. These were considered to have a postinfectious functional gastrointestinal disorder. We investigated visceral hypersensitivity in patients with persisting(More)
Adenocarcinoma of the pancreas remains one of the most lethal human cancers. The high mortality rates associated with this form of cancer are subsequent to late-stage clinical presentation and diagnosis, when surgery is rarely possible and of modest chemotherapeutic impact. Survival rates following diagnosis with advanced pancreatic cancer are very low;(More)
The aims of this study were to investigate gastric antral geometry and stress-strain properties by using transabdominal ultrasound scanning during volume-controlled distensions in the human gastric antrum. Seven healthy volunteers underwent stepwise inflation of a bag located in the antrum with volumes up to 60 ml. The stretch ratio and Cauchy stress and(More)
This is the first part of the Guidelines on Interventional Ultrasound of the European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (EFSUMB) and covers all general aspects of ultrasound-guided procedures (short version; the long version is published online).
