The role of ultrasound and lymphoscintigraphy in the assessment of axillary lymph nodes in patients with breast cancer

Michał Nieciecki/ Katarzyna Dobruch-Sobczak/ Paweł Wareluk/ Anna Gumińska/ Ewa Białek/ Marek Cacko/ Leszek Królicki

Breast cancer is the most common malignancy and the leading cause of death due to cancer in European women. Mammography screening programs aimed to increase the detection of early cancer stages were implemented in numerous European countries. Recent data show a decrease in mortality due to breast cancer in many countries, particularly among young women. At the same time, the number of sentinel node biopsy procedures and breast-conserving surgeries has increased. Intraoperative sentinel lymph nod(..)

Efficacy of high frequency ultrasound in postoperative evaluation of carpal tunnel syndrome treatment

Katarzyna Kapuścińska/ Andrzej Urbanik

Aim The aim of the study is to assess the usefulness of high frequency ultrasound in the postoperative evaluation of CTS treatment efficacy. Material and methods Sixty-two patients (50 women and 12 men aged 28–70, mean age 55.2) underwent surgical treatment of CTS. Ultrasound examinations of the wrist in all carpal tunnel sufferers were performed 3 months after the procedure with the use of a high frequency broadband linear array transducer (6–18 MHz, using 18 MHz band) of MyLab 70/Esaote. On th(..)

Urethral length measurement in women during sonographic urethrocystography – an analysis of repeatability and reproducibility

Edyta Wlaźlak/ Jacek Kociszewski/ Jacek Suzin/ Maria Dresler/ Grzegorz Surkont

Aim An assessment of repeatability and reproducibility of urethral length measurements during sonographic urethrocystography in females with a full bladder in the introital approach, using real-time two-dimensional transvaginal ultrasound. Material and methods The ultrasound was performed in accordance with a standardized technique in female patients with a full bladder containing 200–300 mL of liquid. A total of 92 patients were included in the analysis. Results The Intraclass Correlation Coeff(..)

Intra-abdominal fat. Part II: Non-cancerous lesions of the adipose tissue localized beyond organs

Andrzej Smereczyński/ Katarzyna Kołaczyk/ Elżbieta Bernatowicz

Adipose tissue does not belong to the most favorite structures to be visualized by ultrasound. It is not, however, free from various pathologies. The aim of this paper is to make abdominal cavity examiners more familiar with non-cancerous lesions found in intra-abdominal fat. The main focus is lesions that are rarely discussed in the literature. Visceral adiposity is one of important pathogenetic factors contributing to cardiovascular events, metabolic syndrome and even certain neoplasms. That i(..)

Standards in neurosonology. Part II

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 specific 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, study (..)

Role of ultrasonography in the diagnosis of rheumatic diseases in light of ACR/EULAR guidelines

Mateusz Płaza/ Anna Nowakowska-Płaza/ Grzegorz Pracoń/ Iwona Sudoł-Szopińska

In the past years, ultrasound imaging has become an integral element of the diagnostic process in rheumatic diseases. It enables the identification of a range of inflammatory changes in joint cavities, sheaths and bursae, and allows their activity to be assessed. In 2012, experts of the European Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology prepared recommendations concerning the role of ultrasonography in the diagnosis of musculoskeletal diseases. Ultrasound was considered the method of choice in imagin(..)

Diagnostic imaging of psoriatic arthritis. Part I: etiopathogenesis, classifications and radiographic features

Iwona Sudoł-Szopińska/ Genowefa Matuszewska/ Brygida Kwiatkowska/ Grzegorz Pracoń

Psoriatic arthritis is one of the spondyloarthritis. It is a disease of clinical heterogenicity, which may affect peripheral joints, as well as axial spine, with presence of inflammatory lesions in soft tissue, in a form of dactylitis and enthesopathy. Plain radiography remains the basic imaging modality for PsA diagnosis, although early inflammatory changes affecting soft tissue and bone marrow cannot be detected with its use, or the image is indistinctive. Typical radiographic features of PsA (..)

Ultrasound imaging in the general practitioner's office – a literature review

Alicja Genc/ Małgorzata Ryk/ Magdalena Suwała/ Tatiana Żurakowska/ Wojciech Kosiak

Aim The aim of this paper is to review the Polish medical literature pertaining to the usage of ultrasound imaging in general practice as well as to present advantages, disadvantages and utility associated with conducting ultrasound examinations by general practitioners based on selected publications. Material and methods The analysis involved 15 articles found in Polish medical literature published in 1994–2013 in 9 medical journals. These publications were obtained using various data bases, su(..)

Capillary hemangioma of the testis. A case report of a rare benign tumor

Waldemar Białek/ Sławomir Rudzki/ Lech Wronecki

This paper presents the case of a very rare capillary hemangioma of the testis in a 23-year-old patient. Physical examination revealed a tumor located in the upper pole of the left testis, which was suspected of being malignant due to its significantly increased density and irregular contours. Blood levels of the following tumor markers were determined: alpha-fetoprotein, human chorionic gonadotropin and lactate dehydrogenase. No abnormalities were found in any of these tests. A gray-scale ultra(..)
