Diagnostyka obrazowa jąder

Michał Studniarek/ Katarzyna Skrobisz-Balandowska/ Elza Modzelewska

Pathological lesions within the scrotum are relatively rare in imaging except for ultrasonography. The diseases presented in the paper are usually found in men at the age of 15–45, i.e. men of reproductive age, and therefore they are worth attention. Scrotal ultrasound in infertile individuals should be conducted on a routine basis owing to the fact that pathological scrotal lesions are frequently detected in this population. Malignant testicular cancers are the most common neoplasms in men at t(..)

Value of ultrasonography in assessment of recent injury of anterior talofi bular ligament in children

Joanna Szczepaniak/ Beata Ciszkowska-Łysoń/ Robert Śmigielski/ Urszula Zdanowicz

Introduction: Sprained ankle is a very common injury in children. Proper treatment of ligament injuries enables full recovery. X-ray and US examinations are commonly available diagnostic methods. Material and methods: Two hundred and six children (113 girls and 93 boys, mean age 10.6) with recent ankle joint sprain (up to 7 days of injury) were subject to a retrospective analysis. All patients underwent an X-ray and US examination of the ankle joint within 7 days of injury. In 19 patients, anter(..)

Ultrasound assessment of the jugular and vertebral veins in healthy individuals: selected physiological aspects and morphological parameters

Dorota Czyżewska/ Kamil Krysiuk/ Konrad Dobrzycki/ Andrzej Ustymowicz

Aim: Ultrasound assessment of morphological parameters of the internal jugular veins and vertebral veins in healthy individuals as well as their dependence on the patient’s position. Material: The examinations were conducted in 185 healthy individuals (101 females and 84 males) aged 18–89. Ultrasound examinations were conducted with the use of a linear probe with the frequency of 5–9 MHz in the supine (0°) and sitting position (90°). Results: In 154 cases (83.2%) on the left side and in 150 case(..)

Mesenteric changes in an ultrasound examination can facilitate the diagnosis of neuroendocrine tumors of the small intestine

Andrzej Smereczyński/ Teresa Starzyńska/ Katarzyna Kołaczyk

Neuroendocrine tumors make up an interesting pathology of a variable clinical picture, prognosis, localization, endocrine activity and degree of malignancy. Aim: The aim of this paper is to assess whether ultrasonography can be helpful in diagnosing neuroendocrine tumors in the small intestine by analyzing changes in the mesentery. Material and methods:From 1996 to 2013, we encountered 17 patients (9 women and 8 men at the mean age of 57) with a neuroendocrine tumor in the small intestine. The d(..)

High-frequency ultrasound in carpal tunnel syndrome:assessment of patient eligibility for surgical treatment

Katarzyna Kapuścińska/ Andrzej Urbanik

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most common entrapment neuropathy and a frequent cause of sick leaves because of work-related hand overload. That is why an early diagnosis and adequate treatment (conservative or surgical) are essential for optimal patient management. Aim: The aim of the study is to assess the usefulness of high-frequency ultrasound in CTS for the assessment of patient eligibility for surgical treatment. Material and methods: The study involved 62 patients (50 women and 12 me(..)

Ultrasound imaging of the liver and bile ducts – expectations of a clinician

Krzysztof Skoczylas/ Andrzej Pawełas

Since diseases of the liver and bile ducts are common, a clinician is faced by the need to implement an appropriate diagnostic process. It is necessary to apply diagnostic methods that enable appropriate assessment of the most common pathologies of the liver, i.e. fi brosis, steatosis and focal lesions, as well as initial assessment of the bile ducts. These goals can be achieved using ultrasound methods based on conventional sonography, contrast-enhanced sonography and elastography. The assessme(..)

Standards in neurosonology. Part I

Joanna Wojczal/ Tomasz Tomczyk/ Piotr Luchowski/ Grzegorz Kozera/ Radosław Kaźmierski/ Zbigniew Stelmasiak

The paper presents standards related to ultrasound imaging of the cerebral vasculature and structures. The aim of this paper is to standardize both the performance and description of ultrasound imaging of the extracranial and intracranial cerebral arteries as well as a study of a specifi c brain structure, i.e. substantia nigra   hyperechogenicity. The following aspects are included in the description of standards for each ultrasonographic method:equipment requirements, patient preparation, stud(..)

intra-abdominal fat, reflection patterns, localization, ultrasound, diagnostic criteria

Andrzej Smereczyński/ Katarzyna Kołaczyk/ Elżbieta Bernatowicz

Unaltered fat is a permanent component of the abdominal cavity, even in slim individuals. Visceral adiposity is one of the important factors contributing to diabetes,  cardiovascular diseases and certain neoplasms. Moreover, the adipose tissue is an important endocrine and immune organ of complex function both when normal and pathological. Its role in plastic surgery, reconstruction and transplantology is a separate issue. The adipose tissue has recently drawn the attention of research institute(..)

The value of ultrasound in the diagnosis of limited scleroderma – a case report

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

Systemic sclerosis, popularly referred to as scleroderma, is a chronic connective tissue disease with present autoantibodies against platelet-derived growth factor receptor. These antibodies activate directly fi broblasts causing the dermis and internal organs’ fi brosis and vascular damage. Additionally, calcifi c collections, including hydroxyapatite crystals, may develop in subcutaneous tissue and juxta-articular soft tissue. Herein, we report a case of a 72-year-old woman, referred by a rheu(..)
