Intrapartum sonography – eccentricity or necessity?

Marzena Dębska/ Piotr Kretowicz/ Romuald Dębski

Ultrasonography has been extensively used in obstetrics and gynecology since 1980’s.It found application in pediatric gynecology, procreation period, post-menopause, pregnancy monitoring and after delivery. Although the fi rst reports on the use of ultrasonography in assessing delivery mechanism were published in 1990’s, yet to date labor progress is evaluated by means of physical examination in most delivery units. Intrapartum sonography is not routinely performed despite the fact that numerous(..)

Perihepatic lymphadenopathy in children with chronic viral hepatitis

Dagmar Schreiber-Dietrich/ Margret Pohl/ Xin-Wu Cui/ Barbara Braden/ Christoph F. Dietrich/ Liliana Chiorean

Objective. To assess whether lymph node enlargement in the hepatoduodenal ligament occurs in children with chronic viral hepatitis B and C in comparison to healthy controls. Subject and methods. In 49 patients with chronic viral hepatitis (38 with chronic hepatitis B, 11 with chronic hepatitis C, 31 male, 18 female; age range 1 to 17 years), and in 51 healthy controls (25 male, 26 female; age range 4 to 16 years), the total perihepatic lymph node volume was assessed using transabdominal ultrason(..)

Assessment of the utility of ultrasonography with high-frequency transducers in the diagnosis of postoperative 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 postoperative peripheral neuropathies. The study was conducted in a group of 71 patients who in 2009–2011 were referred to ultrasound examinations due to a clinical suspicion of peripheral neuropathies. For the purposes of this analysis, the suspected postoperative neuropathies were divided into three groups: after surgical tre(..)

Breast ultrasound scans – surgeons’ expectations

Piotr Bednarski/ Katarzyna Dobruch-Sobczak/ Eryk Chrapowicki/ Wiesław Jakubowski

Recent years have witnessed a dynamic development of mammary gland imaging techniques,particularly ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging. A challengerelated to these studies is the increase in the precision of the anatomical assessment of breast, particularly for early detection of subclinical lesions, performance of ultrasound-guided biopsy procedures, and accurate preoperative location of pathological lesions so as to optimize the surgical treatment. Ultrasound imaging is a primary an(..)

Wrist ultrasound examination – scanning technique and ultrasound anatomy. Part 1: Dorsal wrist

Cyprian Olchowy/ Mateusz Łasecki/ Urszula Zaleska-Dorobisz

Ultrasound imaging of the musculoskeletal system is superior to other imaging methods in many aspects, such as multidimensional character of imaging, possibility of dynamic evaluation and precise assessment of soft tissues. Moreover, it is a safe and relatively inexpensive method, broadly available and well-tolerated by patients. A correctly conducted ultrasound examination of the wrist delivers detailed information concerning the conditionof tendons, muscles, ligaments, nerves and vessels. Howe(..)

Is pneumoperitoneum the terra ignota in ultrasonography?

Andrzej Smereczyński/ Katarzyna Kołaczyk

In most cases, pneumoperitoneum is caused by gastrointestinal perforation, which usually requires surgical treatment. Many authors believe that ultrasound imaging of pneumoperitoneum is at least as effective as conventional radiography, or even that its effi cacy is superior. In such a situation, it is imperative to make this modality one of the main tools in the diagnostic arsenal of emergency medicine. This is the main aim of this paper. First,ultrasound anatomy of so-called thoracic-abdominal(..)

Enthesopathies and enthesitis. Part 2: Imaging studies

Iwona Sudoł-Szopińska/ Brygida Kwiatkowska/ Monika Prochorec-Sobieszek/ Grzegorz Pracoń/ Marta Walentowska-Janowicz/ Włodzimierz Maśliński

The pathologies of tendon and ligament attachments are called enthesopathies. Enthesitis is one of enthesopathies and it is considered a characteristic sign of rheumatic diseases from the spondyloarthritis group, including peripheral spondyloarthritis. Therefore, enthesitis has been included in a number of clinical classifi cations for diagnosing these diseases. Clinical diagnosis of enthesitis is based on rather non-specifi c clinical signs and results of laboratory tests. It is believed that i(..)

Standards of the Polish Ultrasound Society. Ultrasound examination of the portal system and hepatic vessels

Robert Lechowicz/ Michał Elwertowski

Increased incidence of liver diseases, the development of liver surgery and other invasive methods for managing portal hypertension, plus an increasing number of liver transplant procedures pose more and more new challenges for ultrasonography. Ultrasonography,being an effective and clinically verifi ed modality, has been used for several decades for diagnosing diseases of the liver, its vessels and portal hypertension. It is used for both initial and specialist diagnosis (performed in reference(..)

Abnormal portal vein waveform as an indicator of constrictive pericarditis – a case report

Joanna Ścieszka/ Józefa Dąbek/ Paweł Cieślik

We report a case of a 17-year-old patient referred to our outpatient Doppler Department due to clinical suspicion of liver cirrhosis. The patient presented with non-specifi c symptoms,such as malaise, pain in the right subcostal region, peripheral oedema. Until then,diagnostic imaging, including echocardiography was inconclusive. We performed the Doppler sonography of the portal system, which revealed normal diameter of the portal vein with abnormal, phasic and markedly pulsatile waveform. Hepat(..)
