Ultrasound assessment of extensor pollicis longus tendon rupture following distal radius fracture: a sonographic and surgical correlation

Louy Ghazal/ Mohammed Nabi/ Christopher Little/ James Teh

Abstract Aim of the study: To assess the features identified on ultrasound in patients presenting with suspected extensor pollicis longus tendon rupture, and correlate this with surgical findings. Material and methods: A retrospective case series review was performed in 11 patients (8 female, 3 male) with suspected extensor pollicis longus tendon rupture. All ultrasound examinations were performed by an experienced musculoskeletal radiologist using a high-resolution linear-array probe. The study(..)

The interrater reliability of ultrasonography for Achilles tendon structure

Marc Paantjens/ Marco Leeuw/ Pieter Helmhout/ Amanda Isaac/ Michel De Maeseneer

Abstract Aim of the study: Reliable assessment of Achilles tendon structure (architecture and morphology) may help prevent clinical symptoms or progression of Achilles tendinopathy. The objective of this study was to determine the interrater reliability of musculoskeletal ultrasonography for the assessment of the mid-portion of the Achilles tendon: (1) structure, (2) anteroposterior diameter and (3) neovascularization, in asymptomatic military personnel. Material and methods: Two sonographers ac(..)

Effect of adding a capsule with activated charcoal to abdominal ultrasound preparation on image quality

Ahmed Abdul Jabar/ Ibrahim Abbas/ Nabeel Mishah/ Mohammed Wazan/ Motaen Tomehy

Abstract Background: Patient preparation for routine abdominal ultrasound, such as fasting for 8 hours and having a light meal the night before the examination, is a common practice employed to avoid digestive motility and gases, which are considered the main causes of artifacts and image quality degradation. Importance of this study: Patient preparation before abdominal ultrasound plays a major role to ensure better visualization of internal organs and pathologies by minimizing artifacts, but b(..)

Renal echotextural changes in Nigerian workers chronically exposed to petroleum-based liquid fuels

Angel-Mary C. Anakwue/ Felicitas U. Idigo/ Raphael C. Anakwue

Abstract Background: Exposure to hydrocarbon is associated with an increased risk of development of chronic kidney disease. Ultrasound, which is a non-invasive imaging modality, provides very important information about kidney morphology. Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of chronic exposure to some petroleum products on the kidney of exposed workers using sonography. Materials and methods: This was a prospective cross-sectional study involving 415 workers with chronic(..)

Internet-based digital video atlas of sonographic findings for clinical and educational purposes

Daniel Merkel/ Christoph Schneider/ Michael Ludwig

Abstract Introduction: A professional and valid ultrasound examination is dependent upon an extensively experienced examiner. Recognition and classification of rare or minimally distinctive findings are a particular source of uncertainty on the part of the examiner. By creating an online-based video database of sonographic findings, we tried to share our own experience for clinical and educational purposes. Material and methods: More than a thousand video clips of documented ultrasound findings (..)

Optimization of diagnostic ultrasonography of the gallbladder based on own experience and literature

Andrzej Smereczyński/ Katarzyna Kołaczyk/ Elżbieta Bernatowicz

Abstract Although transabdominal imaging of the gallbladder has become a gold standard, new light should be shed on some aspects, which will prove useful in everyday practice. Therefore, based on our own experience and the available literature, we would like to draw attention to those elements of gallbladder ultrasound imaging which may increase its diagnostic efficacy. The paper draws attention to the difficulty in assessing certain anatomical structures, such as the inferior wall, the bottom a(..)

Imaging in dermatomyositis in adults and children

Iwona Sudoł-Szopińska/ Thibaut Jacques/ Piotr Gietka/ Anne Cotten

Abstract Dermatomyositis is a rare autoimmune disorder in which an abnormal immune reaction against vascular endothelial antigens and endomysium leads to obstructive inflammatory changes of blood vessels within muscles, skin and other tissues. The disease is characterized by involvement of muscles, and less frequently of other systems, including the gastrointestinal tract, heart and lungs. Dermatomyositis may be diagnosed based on a detailed patient history, through clinical examination, detecti(..)

Indications for abdominal imaging: When and what to choose?

Cosmin Caraiani/ Dong Yi/ Bianca Petresc/ Christoph Dietrich

Abstract Imaging has a very important role in evaluating abdominal pathology. A good knowledge of indications is of crucial importance in the management of the patient with abdominal pathology. Ultrasound, which on its own can lead to an accurate diagnosis, plays a pivotal role in the management of abdominal pathology. The use of ultrasound contrast agents has significantly improved ultrasound diagnostic capacities in both hepatic and non-hepatic pathology. The use of computed tomography should (..)

Infiltrative non-mass-like hepatocellular carcinoma initially presenting with isolated malignant portal vein thrombosis: A case report and review of the literature

Anıl Çolaklar/ Namık Kemal Altınbaş

Abstract Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) shows a rising incidence and mortality rates worldwide. HCC is divided into several distinct subtypes, both morphologically and histopathologically. Among these subtypes, infiltrative HCC may be the most challenging subtype to diagnose, given its characteristic myriad of tumor nodules blended with normal hepatocytes without a distinct mass-like lesion. Herein, we report an unusual case of an infiltrative HCC initially presenting with isolated malignant por(..)

Multimodality imaging in a diagnostic and therapeutic process of a patient with infective endocarditis

Maria Binkiewicz-Orluk/ Marcin Konopka/ Katarzyna Sierakowska-Sitkiewicz/ Wojciech Król/ Leszek Królicki/ Marek Kuch/ Wojciech Braksator

Abstract Despite the fact that more and more guidelines that systematize our knowledge are being published, infective endocarditis remains a considerable diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. This is partially caused by the variable course of the disease process and numerous potential complications with high mortality. We present a case of a 48-year-old police officer with an inflammatory process within the aortic valve that led to the development of peripheral emboli in the central nervous syst(..)

Transient venous air embolism after ERCP: worrisome or not?

Theodor Alexandru Voiosu/ Andrada Viorela Gheorghe/ Gabriel Lepădat/ Radu Bogdan Mateescu/ Mihai Rimbaș

Abstract The paper describes the occurrence of a rare complication – portal and systemic venous air embolism – after endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, related to the endoscopic procedure. It can be associated with the more frequently encountered post-endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography complications pancreatitis or cholangitis. However, it can also be noted with perforation. The presented case suggests that in the clinical context an early abdominal ultrasound examinatio(..)
