Introduction: The American Consensus established risk groups for urinary tract dilation (UTD), however it has not been validated. Purpose: To validate the usefulness of the upper UTD risk groups according to a long-term outcome of patients stratified with a homologous classification. Read More

Pediatric carotid artery Intima-Media Thickness (IMT) is a non-invasive ultrasound marker of early atherosclerosis. Obesity in children is associated with increased IMT. The objective of this meta-analysis is to report IMT values in children living with overweight/obesity in the literature. Read More

Final Pr. ID: Poster #: EDU-02 (R)

The purpose of this education is to provide direct practical experience using a simulator to Radiographers on catheterizing the female pediatric patient. The simulator will allow the Radiographer to develop the skills and techniques required for the procedure without exposing patients to unnecessary risks. Read More

Morphological and functional carotid artery alteration can occur already in youth ages, essentially in presence of cardiovascular risk factors. Studies have showed that sonographic assessment of carotid artery (CA) Intima-Media Thickness (IMT) serves as prognostic factors for cardio-vascular disease also in youth patient population. As functional changes occur earlier than vessel wall morphological changes, this might be indicated by a decrease in vessel elasticity prior to the increase of IMT. This hypothesis indicates to use an early functional parameter for cardiovascular risk assessment.
This study was designed to assess and evaluate IMT as well as CA vessel elasticity in three groups, in young sportsmen and youth volunteers without any cardio-vascular risk factors (CV-RF) comparing to youth volunteers with CV-RF.
