B-mode ultrasonography is a highly valuable tool in differentiating benign from malignant thyroid lesions and can almost always predict the benign nature of thyroid lesions with excellent diagnostic sensitivity and specificity.
B-mode ultrasonography demonstrated trapped air in our case.
Bruckmaier and Blum [12] conducted B-mode ultrasonography of teat and cisternal parts of the mammary glands of dairy cows, goats and sheep with 5-MHz linear array transducer in a water bath during alpha and beta-adrenergic agonist and oxytocin administration.
With B-mode ultrasonography cut-off score of 8, we found sensitivity of 80%, specificity of 50% and NPV of 84%.
B-mode ultrasonography was used to detect lower-limb DVT before the operation and 7 days after the operation in all patients.
We assessed carotid IMT by high-resolution B-mode ultrasonography in all patients, and examined the presence of atherosclerotic plaque.
High resolution B-mode ultrasonography was used to measure intima medial thickness (IMT) and velocity of both sides common carotid artery, external and internal carotid artery and vertebral artery.
The equine conceptus growth profile during early gestation was studied by GINTHER (1995), who produced a detailed description of embryonic and fetal growth from days nine to 45 after ovulation by using B-mode ultrasonography. The knowledge of a normal growth pattern for the equine conceptus development during early pregnancy allows embryo/fetal age prediction when performing pregnancy diagnosis, as well as aids in the detection of abnormalities which could indicate the ocurrence of embryonic loss.
The diagnostic accuracy of B-mode ultrasonography in CAIVC is limited secondary to its inability to evaluate noncompressible abdominal veins (especially in the retroperitoneal-space).
For qualitative assessment of renal architecture, B-mode ultrasonography is currently one of the most sensitive, least-invasive diagnostic modality, providing additional benefits of direct visualization of normal structure of internal organs, characterization and location of lesions and collection of biopsy samples.
All patients underwent B-mode ultrasonography of common carotid artery for estimating CIMT and the presence of plaques before and after the first HD session (mean 24.22 +- 2.14 months).
