The Revised Sonographic NASCET Index: A New Hemodynamic Parameter for the Assessment of Internal Carotid Artery Stenosis

G. Hathout, N. Nayak, A. Abdulla, J. Huang

A previously described Doppler parameter, the sonographic NASCET index (SNI), was derived to be more directly analogous to the North American Symptomatic Carotid Endarterectomy Trial (NASCET) methodology for assessing carotid artery stenosis. However, this index does not account for complex changes affecting the Doppler waveform. Hathout et al. propose a revised SNI (rSNI) in an effort to improve predicting carotid stenosis.

Strain Elastography for Prediction of Malignancy in Soft Tissue Tumours – Preliminary Results

I. Riishede, C. Ewertsen, J. Carlsen, M. M. Petersen, F. Jensen, M. B. Nielsen

The aim of Riishede et al. was to evaluate the ability of strain elastography to predict malignancy in soft tissue tumors in patients referred for biopsy of a soft tissue tumor with a clinical suspicion of sarcoma or metastasis. Furthermore, the aim was to compare three evaluation methods: strain ratios, strain histograms and visual scoring.

Normal Doppler Reference Values of the Pericallosal Artery

S. Pashaj, E. Merz, W. Stephan

The purpose of this study was to provide the normal reference values of the Doppler measurements of the pericallosal artery in relation to gestational age from 18 to 41 weeks of gestation.
