Dear Annals of Medical Research Readers

As of the end of March 2021, I have started to work as Chief Editor at Annals of Medical Research. Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 28 years.  Our Journal, which is online as an open access journal with monthly free access, is being scanned in many national and international indexes (ULAKBIM TR Dizin, Turkish Medline, EBSCO, Google Scholar, etc.). I would like to thank the Editors before me who contributed to this level. Our primary goal is to ensure the maintenance of this good state of the journal and to ensure that it is scanned in prestigious international indexes (Pubmed Central, SCI-Expended, etc.). In order to achieve these goals, it depends on the original research articles that can be cited and the articles published in our Journal to be cited sufficiently in other international journals. The contributions of our readers, reviewers and authors in achieving this goal are of great importance.

I hope to announce the news that we have reached our goals as soon as possible.

Abstract

Aim: To investigate the diagnostic value of acoustic radiation force impulse imaging in the detection of cervical cancer, and to assess the contribution of this imaging method in distinguishing histological subtypes of cervical carcinoma.
Materials and Methods: Twenty four patients with malignant cervical mass and 25 healthy volunteers were included in this prospective study. Ultrasonographic evaluation were performed using a 3.5–6-MHz convex abdominal transducer and adequate software for performing elastographic examinations in quantitative acoustic radiation force impulse mode (Virtual Touch Quantification®). Every examination consisted of at least three independent shear wave velocity measurements. The mean shear wave velocity values were calculated, and used for statistical analysis. Postoperative pathology results of the lesions were used as the reference standard.
Results: The mean shear wave velocity values were calculated as 2.79±1.03 m/s in cervical carcinomas, and as 1.86±0.62 m/s in control group. The mean shear wave velocity value of cervical carcinomas was significantly higher than the control group (p=0.003). The mean shear wave velocity values in squamous carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, and adenosquamous carcinoma subtypes were calculated as 2.78±0.93 m/s, 3.16±1.46 m/s, and 1.90±0.21 m/s, respectively. There were no significant differences between cervical carcinoma subtypes in terms of their shear wave velocity values (p=0.247).
Conclusion: Acoustic radiation force impulse imaging is a non-invasive and cost-effective, promising adjunct modality that enables objective quantitative measurement, which may contribute to the diagnosis of malignant cervical masses.

Keywords: Acoustic radiation force impulse; ARFI; cervical carcinoma; ultrasonography

Annals of Medical Research is the scientific official journal of the Inonu University Faculty of Medicine. It is published monthly. The essential aim of the Annals of Medical Research is to publish scientifically high quality clinical and experimental research articles on fields of medicine which can contribute to the literature data. In addition, review articles, case reports, editorials, letters to the editors and manuscripts on publication ethics and medical history, which can contribute to the education and practices of physicians and health sector professionals within the scope of the journal’s target audience and which can increase the level of scientific communication between the authors and readers, are included in the scope of the journal.
