680 Possible Causes for Increased Echogenicity

  • Urinary Tract Infection

    Renal parenchymal echogenicity was also increased in the upper pole. Ultrasonography-guided percutaneous drainage was performed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Doppler ultrasonography showed increased vascularity within the hypoechoic mass and surrounding parenchyma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hyperuricemia

    We describe an infant with transient renal insufficiency associated with hyperuricemia, hyperuricosuria and increased echogenicity of the renal medullary pyramids.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Essential Hypertension

    […] had increased cortical echogenicity on the right and left kidneys, respectively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The variation in cortical echogenicity between the hypertensives and controls was statistically significant; 74.0% and 75.3% of hypertensives and 28.0% and 26.0% of normotensives[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pregnancy

    , but which can be associated with increased risk of chromosomal disorder, e.g.Trisomy 21).[doi.org] Soft markers before 24 weeks' gestation (i.e. structural features in the fetus that are of little or no functional significance (e.g. choroid plexus cyst, echogenic bowel)[doi.org]

  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

    Some sonographic signs associated with tubal inflammation include: thickened/dilated fallopian tubes incomplete septa in the tube increased vascularity around the tube echogenic[radiopaedia.org]

  • Lipedema

    In contrast, lymphoedema has increased dermal thickness and decreased echogenicity.[dermnetnz.org] Ultrasound examination of lipoedema may show normal dermis, and thickened subcutis with increased echogenicity.[dermnetnz.org]

  • Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

    […] in volume of the prostate with a calculated volume exceeding 30 mL (width x height x length x 0.52) the central gland is enlarged, and is hypoechoic or of mixed echogenicity[radiopaedia.org] […] prostate specific antigen (PSA) : elevated but non-specific Ultrasound Ultrasound has become the standard first line investigation after the urologist's finger. there is an increase[radiopaedia.org]

  • Restless Legs Syndrome

    5.1%, P 0.001) and correlated inversely with SN echogenicity (r -0.61, P 0.001).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 5.1%, P 0.001) and correlated inversely with SN echogenicity ( r 0.61, P 0.001).[doi.org] Mean T2 values of all regions were higher in patients (2.9-7.8%), though significantly increased only in four regions; the mean T2 over all voxels was higher in patients ([ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Interstitial Nephritis

    A renal ultrasound was performed on hospital day 9 after the patient developed acute renal failure and showed diffusely increasing echogenicity of the renal parenchymal bilaterally[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A renal ultrasound revealed mildly enlarged kidneys with increased echogenicity.[renalfellow.blogspot.com] Renal Ultrasound: kidney size is normal to enlarged, but may be associated with increased echogenicity 2.[renalandurologynews.com]

  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

    The follicle distribution should be omitted as well as the increase in stromal echogenicity and volume.[doi.org] Although increased stromal volume is a feature of PCO ( Bucket et al ., 2003 ), it has been shown that the measurement of the ovarian volume is a good surrogate for the quantification[doi.org]
