Evaluation of fetal kidney growth using ultrasound: A systematic review( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Highlights: Review of 28 studies from January 1996 to January 2017. Some normal ranges of 2D and 3D fetal kidney size and volume available. Limited research on fetal kidney growth in abnormal fetal growth. Good reliability and reproducibility of 3D volumes has not yet been demonstrated. Abstract: Purpose: To determine the role of ultrasound imaging in evaluating fetal kidney growth. Methods: MEDLINE, CINAHL and EMBASE databases were electronically searched for studies between 1996 and January 2017 and limited to English language. Studies were included if they reported on an ultrasound technique to assess fetal kidney growth and they were not a case report or case series. There was independent selection of studies by two reviewers in consensus with one other reviewer. Data were extracted by one reviewer in consensus with two other reviewers. Results: A total of 1785 articles were identified. The full text of 39 of these were assessed for eligibility for inclusion. Twenty-eight studies were then included in the review. Standard two dimensional (2D) fetal renal measurements are easy to perform, however, this review identified that most studies had some methodological limitations. The disadvantage with 2D and three dimensional (3D) fetal renal volumes are that they include the entire kidney and good reproducibility of 3D volumes has not yet been demonstrated. Currently there is limited research on fetal kidney growth in the setting of abnormal fetal growth. Research focussing directly on fetal kidney parenchyma and blood flow is scarce. Conclusions: Some nomograms of 2D and 3D fetal kidney size and volume have been developed. Kidney length is the most popular single fetal kidney measurement; however, it does not seem to be a good indicator of growth. In IUGR fetuses, kidney length remained similar to appropriately grown fetuses whereas AP and TS dimensions were significantly decreased. New ultrasound techniques focusing on the parenchyma of the kidney and perfusion to the kidney should be explored as they may provide more meaningful information on kidney development in the fetus and future kidney function
Axial-strain sonoelastography of the Achilles tendinopathy : diagnosis, prevention and treatment monitoring by Chin Chin Ooi( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Compression elastography or axial-strain sonoelastography (SE) is a relatively new ultrasound (US) based technique that estimates the stiffness or softness of a tissue by measuring the strain (displacement) caused by tissue compression. Axial-strain SE allows characterization of the differences in stiffness between the region of interest and the surrounding tissue in a large range of lesions and pathologies. To date, several studies applying axial-strain SE to assess Achilles tendinopathy, patellar tendinopathy and common extensor tendinopathy have been published with conflicting results. The discrepancy in results reported between publications raising questions regarding its reproducibility. Moreover, there are still limited data regarding the diagnostic role of SE. This thesis builds upon previous work, evaluating the applications of axial-strain SE for the diagnosis of Achilles tendinopathy, assessing the risk of developing future symptoms and monitoring the disease progression and the efficacy of intervention. Our preliminary results demonstrated that the supplementation of axial-strain SE to traditional US imaging achieved a higher sensitivity and accuracy than routine combination technique of Colour Doppler and B-mode US. The semi-quantitative strain-ratio measurement was more related to the Achilles tendon pain and functional disability compared to conventional B-mode US. The results are clinically relevant as it may allow accurate and timely diagnosis of tendon injuries, which, in turn, allow early management planning and minimise possible tendon disability. Another important contribution of this thesis was the identification of sonographic predictors for the development of Achilles tendon injuries. Intratendinous delaminations and soft tendon properties as well as increased thickening and cross-sectional area were the potential risk factors for clinically manifesting Achilles tendon pain in elite athletes. Conventional US supplemented with axial-strain SE may be able to identify at risk athletes and allow early initiation of rehabilitative protocols to prevent further tendon damage. In addition, our research has shown that following therapy, the treated Achilles tendons showed progressive stiffening in relation to the Kager's fat, coinciding with improvement in clinical findings up to one year follow-up. This highlights the potential clinical utility of axial-strain SE as supplementary tool in routine monitoring of Achilles tendon healing after treatment. We believe the work presented in this thesis will facilitate the use of axial-strain SE for diagnosis and management of Achilles tendon injuries in routine clinical setting
