1. Sharma, Avish. Inter and intra-examiner reliability of ultrasound elastography for assessment of the anterior thigh in healthy adults.

Degree: 2016, Unitec New Zealand

BACKGROUND: To date there are few studies of acceptable methodological quality investigating the reliability of elastography ultrasound use in the lower limb. The aim of the study was to investigate the inter and intra-reliability of EUS assessment of anterior thigh soft-tissues. METHODS: Twelve healthy subjects (9 females, 3 males, mean ± SD age=28.9 ± 5.8 years, height = 169.6 ± 9.2cm, weight 69.6 ± 13.4kg) were recruited using convenience sampling. A repeated measures test retest design was used to compare EUS measures between (inter) and within (intra) 3 examiners (2 novices, 1 expert) using acoustic radiation force impulse elastography. The subjects attended one session where each examiner collected measures from each subject two times. Colour hue histograms were derived from elastogram images. RESULTS: Extraction reliability for images was excellent with ICC of 0.99 (95% CI= 0.99 – 1.00). The intra-examiner reliability was ‘fair to good’ for the experienced examiner and mostly ‘excellent’ for the novices. The inter-examiner reliability ranged between ‘fair to good’ and ‘excellent’. CONCLUSIONS: There was acceptable reliability for both inter and intra-examiner reliability for EUS assessment of anterior thigh soft-tissue stiffness. However, the small number of examiners may limit the generalisability of these findings. Advisors/Committee Members: Unitec Institute of Technology.

2. Takashima, Makiko. Quantitative evaluation of masseter muscle stiffness in patients with temporomandibular disorders by shear wave elastography : せん断波エラストグラフィを用いた顎関節症患者の咬筋硬さの定量的評価.

Degree: 博士(歯学), 2016, Niigata University / 新潟大学

学位の種類: 博士(歯学). 報告番号: 甲第4144号. 学位記番号: 新大院博(歯)甲第342号. 学位授与年月日: 平成28年3月23日

We aimed to quantify masseter muscle stiffness in patients with masticatory myofascial pain. Masseter muscle stiffness was measured by acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) imaging, which expresses stiffness as shear wave velocity (Vs). Muscle stiffness was 1.96 m/s (4.28 kPa) in 11 patients in Research Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders (RDC/TMD) group Ia, 2.03 m/s (4.53 kPa) in 11 patients in RDC/TMD group Ib and 1.37 m/s (2.10 kPa) in 13 control subjects. Vs was significantly greater in groups Ia and Ib than in control (Steel–Dwass test, p <0.05). Characteristic pain intensity (CPI) became clear as an independent factor impacting Vs (partial regression coefficient = 0.625; multiple regression analysis, p < 0.05). Masseter muscles stiffness correlated with CPI (Spearman’s rank order test, p < 0.05) and was about two-fold greater in groups Ia and Ib than in healthy subjects.
