Inter-rater reliability of an ultrasound protocol to evaluate the anterolateral ligament of the knee

Michel Kandel/ Erik Cattrysse/ Michel De Maeseneer/ Leon Lenchik/ Marc Paantjens/ Marco Leeuw

Abstract Objectives: The aim of this study was to validate an ultrasound protocol for evaluating the anterolateral ligament of the knee. Methods: A Thiel technique cadaveric specimen was used to validate an optimal scanning position and develop an ultrasound protocol to evaluate the anterolateral ligament. Three musculoskeletal sonographers acquired short- and long-axis images of the anterolateral ligament in 36 knees from 18 healthy volunteers. Anterolateral ligament length, thickness, width, a(..)

The primary role of radiological imaging in the diagnosis of rare musculoskeletal diseases. Emphasis on ultrasound

Federica Rossi/ Carlo Martinoli/ Giovanni Murialdo/ Angelo Schenone/ Marina Grandis/ Diego Ferone/ Alberto Stefano Tagliafico

Abstract Objective: In July 2017 a multidisciplinary clinical Center specialized in rare diseases was activated. A rare disease can involve the musculoskeletal system. A multimodality musculoskeletal imaging approach allows for a rapid diagnosis. The purpose of this study was to assess when musculoskeletal radiology, ultrasound in particular, plays a primary role in the diagnostic path of a rare disease. Methods and materials: The Center included a list of 621 main rare diseases. Pathologies in (..)

The use of a probe stabilizer to reduce musculoskeletal overload of ultrasound operators in routine diagnostic echocardiographic imaging

Sjoerd Bouwmeester/ Marloes de Kleijn/ Jan van Wijngaarden/ Patrick Houthuizen

Abstract Introduction: Echocardiography is essential in the evaluation of patients with cardiovascular disease. Repetitive movements, however, expose ultrasound operators to a high risk of musculoskeletal strain injuries. Aim: We investigated to what extent a probe stabilizer could reduce repetitive movements. Materials and methods: The study population consisted of 31 male patients referred for routine transthoracic echocardiography. A good apical acoustic window was prerequisite for inclusion.(..)

Abstract Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the inter- and intra-observer variability and accuracy of ultrasound assessment of thyroid nodules using a descriptive lexicon. Materials and methods: A prospective study was performed on complete ultrasound examinations, including sonoelastography and color Doppler ultrasound of 18 patients with 20 thyroid nodules. A total of 20 records of thyroid nodules from these techniques were duplicated, numbered, and randomly arranged. Five radiologists(..)

The role of TVT position in relation to the pubic symphysis in eliminating the symptoms of stress urinary incontinence and urethral funneling

Piotr Pędraszewski/ Edyta Wlaźlak/ Wiktor Wlaźlak/ Magda Krzycka/ Paulina Pająk/ Grzegorz Surkont

Abstract The introduction of suburethral sling was a breakthrough in the treatment of stress urinary incontinence in women. The method is highly effective. However, the mechanism of action of a sling and the reasons for surgical failures are not fully understood. Aim: The aim of the study was to assess the impact of sling-pubic symphysis distance on eliminating the symptoms of stress urinary incontinence and urethral funneling. Materials and methods: The analysis included 106 patients who report(..)

Sonographic assessment of the anatomy and common pathologies of clinically important bursae

Slavcho Ivanoski/ Violeta Vasilevska Nikodinovska

Abstract High-resolution ultrasonography has many advantages in the imaging of the musculoskeletal system, when compared to other imaging methods, particularly in superficial, easily accessible parts of the body. It is a perfect diagnostic tool for visualizing the most common pathologies of the musculoskeletal system, including the bursae. Inflammation of bursae is frequent, and it can mimic other diseases of the musculoskeletal system. Therefore, knowledge of normal ultrasound anatomy of the bu(..)

Differential diagnosis of fat-containing lesions in the inguinal canal using ultrasound

Andrzej Smereczyński/ Katarzyna Kołaczyk

Abstract Abdominal hernias are usually located in the inguinal canals. Differential diagnosis of hernias should consider other pathologies, which typically occur at this site. The aim of this review paper is to present fat-containing lesions located in the inguinal canal based on both our own experience and literature. The first part of the paper describes the embryogenesis and differences in the structure and content of male and female inguinal canal. The canal is clearly wider in men, which re(..)

Diagnostic imaging of gastrointestinal neuroendocrine neoplasms with a focus on ultrasound

Joanna Walczyk/ Anna Sowa-Staszczak

Abstract The diagnosis of gastrointestinal neuroendocrine neoplasms represents a significant diagnostic challenge since these tumours have a various, often non-specific clinical presentation. Currently, more than half of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms are detected incidentally, usually during surgery, diagnostic imaging studies or endoscopic procedures performed for other indications. Sometimes the first symptom of the disease is the presence of metastatic lesions in the liver. (..)

Duplicated inferior vena cava with coexisting multiple vascular anomalies and their clinical implications: a case report

Cezary Gołąbek/ Karolina Druć/ Zuzanna Dusińska/ Jakub Franke/ Emil Głowacki/ Agata Kuskowska/ Adrianna Mróz/ Oliwia Opacka/ Oktawia Pięta/ Anna Świderska/ Karol Welc/ Dominika Jaguś/ Agnieszka Krauze/ Maciej Jędrzejczyk

Abstract The paper presents the case of a 23-year-old man with multiple venous anomalies. The abnormalities were asymptomatic, and they were detected accidentally on routine abdominal ultrasound examination. The anomalies were found in the inferior vena cava, right testicular vein, left renal vein, and hepatic veins. Familiarity with different developmental variants within the inferior vena cava and other venous vessels plays a crucial role in ultrasound imaging. Vascular anomalies, although rar(..)
