OBJECTIVE Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an important and costly health problem in developed countries and has a tendency to progress to end-stage renal disease regardless of the aetiology. This progress ends in interstitial fibrosis, which decreases the elasticity of tissue. Elastography is a developing technique to assess tissue elasticity. The aim of(More)
OBJECTIVE Chronic autoimmune thyroiditis (CAT) (chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis-Hashimoto's thyroiditis), which is the most common inflammatory disorder of the thyroid gland, causes hypothyroidism. Ultrasound elastography is a newly developed sonographic technique that provides an estimation of tissue elasticity by measuring the degree of tissue(More)
BACKGROUND We planned to investigate contribution of DWMR to the treatment efficacy with ADC values which were measured in acute and chronic plaque before and after MS treatment. ADC changes in normal appearing white matter (NAWM) in patients with MS and healthy volunteers were also evaluated in this study. MATERIAL/METHODS 25 patients with MS and 30(More)
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a disorder progressing to end-stage kidney failure. Early diagnosis and treatment are important for medical care. The aim of this prospective study was to define the strain index (SI) and resistivity index (RI) values in the same CKD group for each kidney separately at the same time, and also to compare the efficacy of SI and(More)
A 58-year-old man was admitted to neurosurgery outpatient clinic with the complaint of backache reflecting to the pelvic region in the prone position. There was no problem in erect position. In neurologic examination, there was mild motor weakness in the feet. Other findings were normal. Magnetic resonance imaging of the lumbar spine showed a posterolateral(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the diagnostic value of dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) for laryngeal cancers after inadequate CT results. MATERIAL/METHODS The study comprised 45 patients investigated for primary laryngeal cancer or recurrence-residue in which CT was considered inadequate. A(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to determine the strain index for parotid glands in children by using ultrasound elastography. METHODS In this prospective study, apparently healthy children were referred from the ear-nose-throat clinic to the radiology clinic for elastographic examinations. Conventional sonographic and elastographic examinations of(More)
