ECOGECOG - Eastern cooperative oncology group - The Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) began in 1955 as one of the first publicly funded cooperative groups to perform multi-center clinical trials for cancer research.
ECMO | ECLSECMO - Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation - In intensive care medicine, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) or extracorporeal life support (ECLS) is an extracorporeal technique of providing both cardiac and respiratory support to patients whose heart and lungs are unable to provide an adequate amount of gas exchange to sustain life.
ECHOECHO - Expected consequences of Hearing Aid Ownership - The ECHO survey has been designed to measure prefit expectations of hearing aid use. It was developed as a companion instrument to the SADL questionnaire. As with the SADL, it produces a global score and four subscales: Positive Effect, Service & Cost, Negative Features, and Personal Image. These scale scores can then be compared with the range of scores representing realistic expectations for hearing aid use.
EFMEFM - Electronic fetal monitoring - Electronic fetal heart monitoring (EFHM) is done during pregnancy, labor, and delivery to keep track of the heart rate of baby (fetus) and the strength and duration of the contractions of your uterus. Baby's heart rate is a good way to tell whether baby is doing well or may have some problems.
EECP | ECPEECP - Enhanced external counterpulsation - External counterpulsation therapy (ECP) is a procedure performed on individuals with angina or heart failure or cardiomyopathy in order to diminish symptoms of ischemia, improve functional capacity and quality of life.
EVAREVAR - Endovascular aneurysm repair - Endovascular aneurysm repair (or endovascular aortic repair) (EVAR) is a type of endovascular surgery used to treat pathology of the aorta, most commonly an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA).
ESWTESWT - Extracorporeal shock-wave therapy - ESWT is a method of treatment for multiple tendonopathies, derived from lithotripsy.
EUSEUS - Endoscopic ultrasonography - Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) or echo-endoscopy is a medical procedure in which endoscopy (insertion of a probe into a hollow organ) is combined with ultrasound to obtain images of the internal organs in the chest and abdomen.
EBCT | EBTEBCT - Electron beam computed tomography - Electron beam tomography (EBT) is a specific form of computed tomography (CAT or CT) in which the X-ray tube is not mechanically spun in order to rotate the source of X-ray photons. This different design was explicitly developed to better image heart structures which never stop moving, performing a complete cycle of movement with each heart beat.
ELTELT - Endovenous laser therapy - Endovenous laser treatment (ELT) treats varicose veins using an optical fiber that is inserted into the vein to be treated, and laser light, normally in the infrared portion of the spectrum, shines into the interior of the vein. This causes the vein to contract, and the optical fiber is slowly withdrawn.
