Ultrasound Studies in Chronic Urogenital Pain Conditions

Ultrasound Studies

In conjunction with Europe’s prominent Radiologist, Professor Paweł Wieczorek and his team, Marek Jantos, Dr Ewa Baszak-Ramonska and Sherie Johns have commenced trial studies on the impact of myofascial therapy on pelvic vascularity in chronic urogenital pain cases. A cohort of women suffering severe chronic urogenital pain underwent ultrasound studies pre and post treatment to study to impact of therapy on blood perfusion in the pelvic region. The data is currently being analysed and prepared for publication. Further radiology studies are being planned.

New Innovations for the Assessment of Chronic Urogenital Pain

Marek Jantos has developed and is patent right holder on two new patented projects, one a new 4 Channel EMG project to be tested using MRI and Electromyography which has the potential to change the way pelvic muscle function is evaluated. The other project developed in conjunction with Sherie Johns involves electronic pain mapping software to be used with a patient tablet and office computer during patient assessment.

Pain Mapping Studies

Marek Jantos, Sherie Johns and Ewa Baszak-Radomanska are conducting further validation studies for the pain mapping protocols. This marks the next stage of the development of the pain mapping instrument. They are preparing several new upcoming publications based on the analysis of data from approximately 350 pain maps of various chronic urogenital pain conditions, gynaecological disorders and control groups. The initial data analyses show interesting trends that will have implications for the diagnosis and management of chronic urogenital pain conditions.

Annual National Conference of Gynaecologists in China

Marek Jantos has been asked to address the Annual National Conference of Gynaecologists in China, in March 2015 outlining developments in the management of chronic urogenital pain. The conference has an expected attendance of approximately 7-8000 delegates.
