New aspects in shear-wave elastography of prostate cancer

Markus Porsch/ Johann Jakob Wendler/ Uwe-Bernd Liehr/ Anke Lux/ Martin Schostak/ Maciej Pech

Aim: This study was designed to evaluate the performance of shear-wave elastography as a diagnostic tool for prostate cancer in a larger cohort of patients than previously reported. Patients and methods: Seventy-three patients with suspected prostate carcinoma were investigated by ultrasound elastography followed by directed biopsy. The elastographic and histological results for all biopsies were compared. Results: After exclusion of invalid and non-assessable results, 794 samples were obtained (..)

Assessment of the utility of ultrasonography with high-frequency transducers in the diagnosis of posttraumatic neuropathies

Berta Kowalska

The primary aim of this paper was to assess the relevance of high-frequency ultrasound examination in qualifying patients for either surgical or conservative treatment of posttraumatic peripheral neuropathies. The study was conducted in a group of 47 patients aged 16–65 (mean age 33) who in 2009–2011 were referred to ultrasound examinations due to a clinical suspicion of posttraumatic peripheral neuropathies. The group included 30 females and 17 males. The patients examined presented with neurop(..)

Correlation of findings in clinical and high resolution ultrasonography examinations of the painful shoulder

Raphael Micheroli/ Diego Kyburz/ Adrian Ciurea/ Beat Dubs/ Martin Toniolo/ Samuel Pascal Bisig/ Giorgio Tamborrini

Objective: High resolution ultrasonography is a non-painful and non-invasive imaging technique which is useful for the assessment of shoulder pain causes, as clinical examination often does not allow an exact diagnosis. The aim of this study was to compare the fi ndings of clinical examination and high resolution ultrasonography in patients presenting with painful shoulder. Methods: Non-interventional observational study of 100 adult patients suffering from unilateral shoulder pain. Exclusion cr(..)

Modified sonoelastographic scale score for lymph node assessment in lymphoma – a preliminary report 

Mateusz Łasecki/ Cyprian Olchowy/ Dąbrówka Sokołowska-Dąbek/ Anna Biel/ Radosław Chaber/ Urszula Zaleska-Dorobisz

Elastography is a new method of assessment of lymph node consistency. The majority of papers focus on metastases detection of head and neck or breast tumors. The typical desmoplastic reaction in connective tissue stroma in cancer, which is responsible for tissue’s hardening, is seen in lymphoma less frequently. Material and methods: Study of 15 patients with active Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas and 16 previously treated patients with no evidence of recurrence. A total of 60 patients sufferin(..)

Applications of intraoperative ultrasound in the treatment of complicated cases of acute and chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer – own experience

Grzegorz Ćwik/ Michał Solecki/ Grzegorz Grzegorz

Both acute and chronic infl ammation of the pancreas often lead to complications that nowadays can be resolved using endoscopic and surgical procedures. In many cases, intraoperative ultrasound examination (IOUS) enables correct assessment of the extent of the lesion, and allows for safe surgery, while also shortening its length. Aim of the research: At the authors’ clinic, intraoperative ultrasound is performed in daily practice. In this paper, we try to share our experiences in the application(..)

Enthesopathies and enthesitis. Part 1. Etiopathogenesis

Iwona Sudoł-Szopińska/ Brygida Kwiatkowska/ Monika Prochorec-Sobieszek/ Włodzimierz Maśliński

The pathologies of tendon and ligament attachments are called enthesopathies. One of its types is enthesitis which is a characteristic sign of peripheral spondyloarthropathy. Clinical diagnosis of enthesitis is based on rather non-specifi c clinical signs and results of laboratory tests. Imaging examinations are highly promising. Numerous  publications prove that enthesitis can be differentiated from other enthesopathic processes in an ultrasound examination or magnetic resonance imaging. Howeve(..)

Standards of the Polish Ultrasound Society – update. Ultrasound examination of the visceral arteries

Michał Elwertowski/ Robert Lechowicz

Ultrasound examination is a valuable method in diagnosing visceral vasoconstriction of atherosclerotic origin, as well as constriction related to the compression of the celiac trunk. Given the standard stenosis recognition criteria of >70%, the increase in peak systolic velocity (PSV) over 200 cm/s in the celiac trunk; of PSV > 275 cm/s in the superior mesenteric artery, and of PSV > 250 cm/s in the inferior mesenteric artery, thelikelihood of correct diagnosis is above 90%. In the case of steno(..)

Radial sesamoid fracture of the second MCP joint – a case report

Grzegorz Pracoń/ Marta Walentowska-Janowicz/ Paweł Nowicki/ Mateusz Płaza/ Iwona Sudoł-Szopińska

A fracture of the sesamoid bone of the hand is rarely seen. In most cases, it is strictly associated with the trauma. The patient complains of a long-lasting, due to unclear  diagnosis, painful swelling of the joint with an inability to fl ex the affected fi nger. Limited blood supply makes the untreated fracture prone to avascular necrosis. Thus, it is extremely important to make a proper diagnosis early. Bilateral comparing the affected areas with ultrasonography seems to be the method of choi(..)
