Our aim was to improve the detection of prostate cancer by evaluating whether contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) or sonoelastography (SE) is more helpful in guiding targeted biopsy (TB) performed before systematic biopsy (SB).
To compare elastography measurements in men with normal testicular tissue, testicular microlithiasis and testicular cancer.
A total of 248 consecutive patients were included. All men provided written informed consent.
Carcinoma of the prostate gland is the most common neoplasm in men. Its treatment depends on multiple factors among which local staging plays a significant role. The basic method is transrectal ultrasound imaging.
To evaluate the relationship between erection grade, erectile function score, Doppler ultrasonography (US) indexes, and elasticity score (ES) according to Doppler US diagnosis in patients with erectile dysfunction (ED).
The objective of this study is to review the diagnostic performance of shear-wave elastography (SWE) in the detection of prostate cancer (PCa).
The MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane library databases were searched up to December 23, 2016.
Strain elastography (SE) is a new technique of parametric imaging that allows quantification of the elasticity of tissue. The aim of our study was to determine if the elasticity of para-urethral tissue correlates with urethral mobility and urinary incontinence (UI).
To evaluate the performance of a combination of real-time strain elastography (RTSE) and contrast-enhanced transrectal ultrasound (CETRUS) for prostate cancer detection. Patients with serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels of ≥4.
