Abstract Objective: Neoadjuvant chemotherapy was initially used in locally advanced breast cancer, and currently it is recommended for patients with Stage 3 and with early-stage disease with human epidermal growth factor receptors positive or triple-negative breast cancer. Ultrasound imaging in combination with a quantitative ultrasound method is a novel diagnostic approach. Aim of study: The aim of this study was to analyze the variability of the integrated backscatter coefficient, and to evalu(..)

Zbigniew Czyrny/ Bartłomiej Kordasiewicz/ Maciej Kiciński/ Małgorzata Brzozowska

Abstract Aim: The aim of the study was to determine the thickness of the tendinous and capsuloligamentous layers in the supraspinatus and infraspinatus zones of the shoulder. Materials and methods: Anatomical and ultrasonographic assessment of three fresh anatomical specimens consisting of the humeral head together with the capsuloligamentous layer called the superior complex and the supraspinatus and infraspinatus myotendinous units cut off at the level of the scapular glenoid rim. The first sp(..)

Minimally invasive ultrasound-guided parotid gland biopsy in cadavers performed by rheumatologists

Raphael Micheroli/ Ulrich Wagner/ Magdalena Mueller-Gerbl/ Mireille Toranelli/ Christian Marx/ George A.W. Bruyn/ Sandrine Jousse-Joulin/ Giorgio Tamborrini

Abstract Introduction: Surgical biopsy of minor salivary glands is routinely performed for the diagnosis of Sjögren syndrome. However, surgical biopsies of the minor labial glands may result in various complications in up to 6% of patients. On the other hand, adverse events following core needle biopsies of the parotid gland in non-rheumatological settings have been reported as very rare. Aim: The objective of this study was to assess the feasibility and determine the presence of parotid gland t(..)

Guidelines for ultrasound examination in ophthalmology. Part III: Color Doppler ultrasonography

Monika Modrzejewska

Abstract The aim of this article was to present the possibilities of use and application of color-coded Doppler ultrasonography in the diagnosis of various diseases of the eyeball and orbit which result from vascular disorders. Color-coded Doppler ultrasonography is recommended for the assessment of blood flow velocity in the retrobulbar arteries. That is why the article contains current recommendations for Doppler imaging in ophthalmology. The paper provides detailed recommendations for patient(..)

High resolution ultrasound for imaging complications of muscle injury: Is there an additional role for elastography?

Eleni E. Drakonaki/ Iwona Sudoł-Szopińska/ Christos Sinopidis/ Panagiotis Givissis

Abstract Muscle healing after injury occurs within a period of weeks following a three-phase physiological process. Disruption of the normal healing process may lead to a number of complications, including excessive scar formation, myositis ossificans, muscle atrophy, muscle cysts and hernias. Complications of muscle injury are important because they may be symptomatic, are associated with high risk of re-injury and compromise muscle performance, thus delaying return to sporting activity and req(..)

Ultrasound features of sole of foot pathology: a review

Claire Filippini/ James Teh

Abstract Foot pain is a common problem among adults, with approximately 19% of men and 25% of women describing significant daily foot pain that limits their ability to function. Older adults, the obese, and active adults participating in sports involving running and jumping are at increased risk of developing pathology. Problems affecting the sole of the foot are often the cause of pain. Ultrasound is an extremely useful method of quickly and accurately localizing and characterizing pathology of(..)

Juvenile spondyloarthritis and chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis overlap syndrome in a 16-year-old adolescent. A case report and literature review

Michał Znajdek/ Agnieszka Gazda/ Piotr Gietka/ Marta Wysmołek/ Iwona Sudoł-Szopińska

Abstract The authors present a very rare case of juvenile spondyloarthritis and chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis overlap syndrome in a 16-year-old girl and discuss diagnostic difficulties associated with this case. Juvenile spondyloarthropathies are a type of rheumatic diseases characterized by non-symmetrical peripheral arthritis and enthesitis as well as by spondylitis. Chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis is a rare, possibly autoimmune disease found primarily in children and a(..)

Sonographic appearance of angiomyofibroblastoma-like tumor of the scrotum

Tamar Kass/ David Cohen/ Paul Gottlieb/ Simon Strauss

Abstract A variety of extratesticular tumors and tumor-like conditions can occur in the scrotum. Angiomyofibroblastoma is a rare, slow-growing, well-circumscribed mesenchymal tumor, found predominantly in women, and is even a more unusual occurrence in the male genital tract. We describe a case of a 64-year-old male presenting with a scrotal painless mass. On sonography, a well-circumscribed extratesticular mass was present. As no specific imaging findings were present, it was a surprise to lear(..)

Sonographic diagnosis of large-cell calcifying Sertoli cell tumor

Osman Ocal/ Dilek Ertoy Baydar/ Ilkay Sedakat Idilman/ Hasan Serkan Dogan/ Serdat Tekgul/ Mustafa Ozmen

Abstract Large-cell calcifying Sertoli cell tumor is a very rare neoplasm of the testis with less than 100 reported cases. It is associated with some genetic syndromes, and it has some features that help to distinguish benign and malign cases. An 11-year-old boy presented with testicular lesions in both testicles. He underwent right radical orchiectomy in another institution and was referred to our hospital for further treatment. The lesions were reported as large-cell calcifying Sertoli cell tu(..)

Intraoperative decision to change the course of management based on an ultrasonographic image of urinary bladder paraganglioma – a case study

Waldemar Białek/ Piotr Kawecki/ Katarzyna Dyndor/ Lech Wronecki/ Sławomir Rudzki

Abstract This case study concerns a 69-year-old woman qualified for transurethral resection of a primary tumor in a urinary bladder. Since a cystoscopic image did not correspond with typical urothelial carcinoma, an intraoperative ultrasonographic transrectal imaging was carried out, on the basis of which it was believed to be urinary bladder paraganglioma. Endoscopic treatment was abandoned. The patient was directed for further examination and next, on suspicion of extra-bladder phaeochromocyto(..)

A developmental variant of the thyroid cartilage

Sanaa Jamali/ Etienne Danse

Abstract Neck sonography is commonly used as the first imaging method for acute and chronic neck pain or swelling. Adequate knowledge of normal sonography findings is needed for optimal patient work-up. Although thyroid cartilage is rarely sonographically analyzed, there are anatomical variants detectable with sonography. These variants should not be confused with pathologies. Our case report is focused on cyst-like lesions of the thyroid cartilage, which are uncommon incidental findings when im(..)
