Case report

Two case reports of synchronous unilateral pleomorphic adenoma and cystadenolymphoma of the parotid gland with literature review

Abstract Background: Synchronous unilateral tumors in the parotid glands account for less than 5–10% of all salivary gland neoplasms. Mostly these are cystadenolymphomas, but tumors of different histological types can be found as well. In these cases it is often pleomorphic adenoma in combination with cystadenolymphoma. Ultrasound is the first choice imaging modality. Case report: We present two patients with two simultaneous tumors in a unilateral parotid gland. In each case, B-mode ultrasound

Ultrasonography of vulnerable atherosclerotic plaque in the carotid arteries: B-mode imaging

plaque should then include: fibrous cap thickness; size of the lipid necrotic core; identification of plaque neovascularization; identification of the direction of plaque remodeling; detection of fibrous cap damage or risk of its occurrence. Ultrasonography is the most available, the cheapest and noninvasive method of examining arteries to identify and assess the morphology and condition of atherosclerotic plaque. Within the past 20 years, two-dimensional ultrasound (2D, B-Mode) and Doppler imaging

Shear wave elastography in medullary thyroid carcinoma diagnostics

Aim:The aim of the study was to assess the clinical usefulness of SWE in medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) diagnostics.Materials and methods:A total of 169 focal lesions were identified in the study group (139 patients), including 6 MTCs in 4 patients (mean age: 45 years). B-mode ultrasound and SWE were performed using Aixplorer (SuperSonic, Aix-en-Provence), with a 4–15 MHz linear probe. The ultrasound was performed to assess the echogenicity and echostructure of the lesions, their margin, the

B-mode US showed a compound, nodular lesion at the bifurcation of the right common carotid artery The lesion measured 28 mm × 24 mm, with clear border, low echogenicity and homogeneous structure. The dilatation between the bifurcation of the carotids, presented an image of a smooth repulsion with a widened space between the internal and external carotids. Triplex US imaging showed high vascularization from collateral

Currently, in the monitoring of patients treated with NAC, clinical breast examination (CBE), mammography (MMG), traditional B-mode ultrasound imaging (US), magnetic resonance imaging with a contrast agent (CA-MRI), or diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) can be used(9). CBE has been shown to be a

and the possibility of recurrent injury(1–3). High-resolution ultrasound imaging is extensively used in the workup of muscle injuries. With the advent of the latest generation high-resolution ultrasound scanners equipped with high-frequency probes and advanced B-mode and Doppler technology, muscle tissue can be imaged in exquisite detail allowing the depiction of subtle abnormalities. The sensitivity of high-resolution ultrasound can be comparable to that of MRI in the acute setting (between 2–48

Prospective analysis of inter-observer and intra-observer variability in multi ultrasound descriptor assessment of thyroid nodules

, microcalcifications, and a taller-than-wide shape are the B-mode features with the highest level of specificity for the detection of malignant thyroid nodules(6–8). However, none of these features, taken individually, are exclusive to malignant lesions, and benign nodules with a single abnormal feature are relatively common(2,9–11). Thus, new, non-invasive imaging methods capable of supporting the differentiation of thyroid lesions are being developed. Recently, sonoelastography has become an increasingly used

Standards for scrotal ultrasonography

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

Comparison of scintigraphy and ultrasound imaging in patients with primary, secondary and tertiary hyperparathyroidism – own experience

patients with documented primary, secondary and tertiary hyperparathyroidism were retrospectively analyzed. All patients underwent a 99mTc hexakis-2-methoxyisobutylisonitrile scintigraphy of the neck with the use of subtraction and two-phase examinations. Ultrasonography of the neck was performed in all the patients in B mode 2D presentation. A total number of 172 parathyroid glands were analyzed. Results Results The sensitivity and specificity of scintigraphy was 68% and 60%, respectively. The
