Acoustic radiation force impulse imaging of kidneys – a phantom study

Szymon Cygan/ Magdalena Januszewicz

Aim of the study: Since there have been only few works reporting the diagnosis of kidneys using Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse technique and those works do not provide consistent results of shear wave velocity measurements in renal tissue, we have decided to use kidney phantoms with known properties to examine the reliability of the method itself in a controlled setup similar to kidneys examination. Materials and methods: Four gelatin-based phantoms imitating different clinical situations were(..)

Comparison of voiding cystourethrography and urosonography with second-generation contrast agents in simultaneous prospective study

Maciej Piskunowicz/ Dominik Świętoń/ Dorota Rybczyńska/ Piotr Czarniak/ Arkadiusz Szarmach/ Mariusz Kaszubowski/ Edyta Szurowska

Background: The invasiveness and exposure to radiation in voiding cystourethrography led to the introduction of alternative methods of diagnosis of vesicoureteral reflux, including contrast enhanced voiding urosonography. While there is a limited number of studies comparing these methods using new generation ultrasound contrast agents, none of them compared both methods simultaneously. This study is aimed at assessing agreement between contrast enhanced voiding urosonography with second-generati(..)

Inability of shear-wave elastography to distinguish malignant from benign prostate tissue – a comparison of biopsy, whole-mount sectioning and shear-wave elastography

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

Aim: This study was designed to assess the possible usefulness of shear-wave elastography in differentiating between benign and malignant tissue in prostate neoplasia. Patients and methods: A total of 120 prostate tissue samples were obtained from 10 patients treated by radical prostatectomy and investigated pre-operatively by ultrasound elastography followed by directed biopsy. After resection, whole-mount sectioning and histological examination was performed. The predictions based on shear-wav(..)

The value of ultrasonography in the diagnosis of varicocele

Tomasz Lorenc/ Leszek Krupniewski/ Piotr Palczewski/ Marek Gołębiowski

A varicocele is described as pathologically enlarged, tortuous veins of the pampiniform plexus, leading to an increased testicular temperature and adrenal metabolite reflux into the testes. Varicocele can impair spermatogenesis and is considered to be the most common cause of male infertility. Patients may palpate a thickening in the scrotum or complain of dull scrotal or inguinal pain, which increases when standing or during erection. In the case of a sudden onset of varicocele in elderly men, (..)

Kidney ultrasound – what is important for a urologist?

Tomasz Szopiński/ Elżbieta Keller/ František Záťura

Kidney ultrasound is one of the basic procedures in the practice of a urologist. Apart from the location and the size, description of renal morphology should contain the thickness of the anterior lip parenchyma in a transverse section and the location of possible narrowings. Uneven outline of the kidney is a sign of past inflammatory conditions. In the case of the pelvicalyceal system dilation, it is advised to specify the dimensions of the pelvis and calyces. Convex shape of the calyces proves (..)

The standards of an ultrasound examination of the prostate gland. Part 1

Janusz F. Tyloch/ Andrzej Paweł Wieczorek

The article discusses the principles of the proper performance of the ultrasound examination of the prostate gland. The paper has been divided into two parts: the general one and the detailed one. The first part presents the necessary requirements referring to the ultrasound apparatus for performing transabdominal examinations of the urinary bladder and the prostate gland as well as for transrectal examinations of the prostate gland. The paper also describes the techniques of performing both exa(..)

Standards for scrotal ultrasonography

Janusz F. Tyloch/ Andrzej Paweł Wieczorek

The paper presents a description of essential equipment requirements for scrotal ultrasonography, including current ultrasound techniques, as well as a review of the most common scrotal pathologies. Patient preparation for the examination as well as ultrasound methodology for the assessment of scrotal and inguinal canal structures are discussed. The standard for scrotal ultrasound examination includes a precise B-mode evaluation, including testicular volumetric assessment performed using automat(..)

Granulomatous prostatitis after intravesical immunotherapy mimicking prostate cancer

Waldemar Białek/ Sławomir Rudzki/ Paweł Iberszer/ Lech Wronecki

Intravesical immunotherapy with attenuated strains of Mycobacterium bovis is a widely used therapeutic option in patients with non-muscle-invasive transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder. A rare complication of intravesical therapy with the Bacillus Calmette-Guérin vaccine is granulomatous prostatitis, which due to increasing levels of prostate-specific antigen and abnormalities found in transrectal examination of the prostate may suggest concomitant prostate cancer. A case of extensive granu(..)

Mucinous borderline ovarian tumor: a case report with diagnostic insights on ultrasound findings

Anna Szymańska-Dubowik/ Marcin Śniadecki/ Agnieszka Bianek-Bodzak/ Marcin Liro/ Edyta Szurowska

Borderline ovarian tumors represent about 10% of all epithelial ovarian cancers, but in contrast to epithelial ovarian cancers, they constitute a group of tumors with a much better prognosis. An assessment of clinical presentation, physical examination, radiological and biochemical findings is necessary to tailor management strategies for patients with ovarian tumors. The article, which is based on a case report, describes different approaches for preoperative diagnosis as well as discusses appr(..)
