The purpose of this study was to validate the accuracy and reliability of volume measurements using three-dimensional (3D) endoluminal ultrasound (ELUS) in canine pseudotumor esophageal specimens in vitro. Pseudotumors were created by injecting various volumes of US gel (0.1-1.0 ml) into canine esophageal specimens. A stepping-motor was used to pull either a 9, 12.5 or 20 MHz transducer through the lumen of the specimen at 1.5 mm/s. Images were downloaded to a LIFE computer system for 3D… CONTINUE READING
