Diagnotic value of Shear Wave Elastography in differentiating parathyroid adenomas from thyroid nodules

Vlad Mihaela , Golu Ioana , Oprea Maria , Amzar Daniela , Balas Melania , Sporea Ioan

Parathyroid adenomas are situated nearby thyroid gland or even intrathyroidal and could be confounded with thyroid nodules. Ultrasound elastography is a noninvasive technique that explores the elasticity and stiffness of different tissue.Aim: To assess the value of 2D-shear wave elastography (2D-SWE), a new technique of sonoelastography, in the differentiation of parathyroid adenomas from thyroid nodules.Subjects and methods: We st...

Real-time shear wave ultrasound elastography (SWE) is a new technique, which evaluates elasticity and stiffness of the different structure.Aim: To determine the values of the elasticity index (EI) measured by SWE in parathyroid gland adenomas and to compare with those of normal thyroid tissue.Subjects and methods: We studied 50 cases (F/M=42/8), ten with primary or tertiary hyperparathyroidism, diagnosed by specific tests, and 40 h...

The impact of strain elastography and 4d doppler in improving the presurgical evaluation of thyroid nodules with intermediate cytology results

Borlea Andreea , Mihaela Cepeha Cristina , Sporea Ioan , Cotoi Laura , Dana Stoian

Fine needle aspiration (FNA) is recommended for diagnosing thyroid nodules with suspicious ultrasound (US) features. Bethesda categories III and IV have conflicting management approaches: follow-up or thyroidectomy. This study aimed to evaluate a multimodal US assessment of the lesions in order to clarify the therapeutic strategy in intermediate cytology cases. 64 successive Bethesda III or IV cases were included. US evaluation consisted of greyscale US, qualitative strain ela...

Thyroid imaging reporting and data systems (TI-RADS) and advanced ultrasound techniques: Compared stratification of the cancer risk

Borlea Andreea , Cotoi Laura , Sporea Ioan , Mihaela Cepeha Cristina , Dana Stoian

The prevalence of thyroid nodules is increasing in the general population, thus detecting the ones at risk represents the main concern in clinical practice. The aim of the study was to compare four important Thyroid Imaging and Reporting Data Systems (TI-RADS) and assess how elastography and 4D Color Doppler vascularity evaluation improve the estimation of the malignancy risk. 133 nodules were evaluated by means of conventional ultrasound (US), elastography and 4D Doppler. All...

Elastography in hyperparathyroidism – decision algorithm

Cotoi Laura , Borlea Andreea , Amzăr Daniela , Sporea Ioan , Schiller Adalbert , Schiller Oana , Nicuşor Pop Gheorghe , Dana Stoian

Background: Primary hyperparathyroidism is a common disorder of the parathyroid glands and the third most frequent endocrinopathy, especially among elderly women. Secondary hyper-parathyroidism is a common complication of chronic kidney disease, associated with high cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. In both primary and secondary hyperparathyroidism, the need to correctly identify the parathyroid glands is mandatory for a better outcome. Elastography can be an effective t...

Shear wave elastography role in localizing secondary hyperparathyroidism

Cotoi Laura , Andreea Borlea , Florin Borcan , Ioan Sporea , Amzar Daniela-Georgiana , Oana Schiller , Adalbert Schiller , Cristina Dehelean , Nicusor Pop , Dana Stoian

Introduction: Secondary hyperparathyroidism (sHPT) is a prevailing complication of chronic kidney disease (CKD) caused by the disturbance of calcium, phosphate, and vitamin D, with high concentrations of serum parathormone (PTH) leading to high rates of cardiovascular and bone disease. The incidence and prevalence of chronic kidney disease, including kidney failure requiring renal replacement therapies (RRT) is rising in Europe. The objective of this study is to determine usin...
