A contemporary review of non-invasive methods in diagnosing abdominal aortic aneurysms

avoidable death. The USPSTF recommends screening by US(5) and it is also the preferred screening tool of the SVS(6). Ultrasound has a high sensitivity (94–100%) and specificity (98–100%) (3). It is noninvasive, easy to perform, and does not require exposure to radiation. CT is a very accurate imaging modality, but not recommended as a screening tool due to potential harm from exposure to radiation(3). Physical examination is also not recommended as a screening tool due to its low sensitivity (39–68

Signed Networks for the US Supreme Court Overturning its Prior Decisions

The Supreme Court is placed at the top of the US judicial system. This Court can hear all civil cases between states and cases between a state and all federal institutions. Also, it can review all decisions made by lower courts. As such, it is one of the three fundamental branches of the US government. Its decisions can have far reaching effects on all areas of life in the USA. There is a large legal literature on the workings of the Supreme Court. In this context, Fowler and Jeon (2008

Changes in the impact of US macroeconomic news on financial markets the example of the Warsaw Stock Exchange

Due to the high importance of the American economy, in the past, announcements of US macroeconomic data were shown to have a significant impact on financial markets in general, and on European stock markets in particular. However, as this effect may vary in time, this paper examines the changes in the impact of US macroeconomic news on the WIG20, the main index of the Warsaw Stock Exchange. Based on intraday data from 2004- 2019 we study the changes in significance and in the strength of the

. However, the knowledge of anatomy is crucial to establish a correct ultrasound diagnosis, also in wrist assessment. An ultrasound examination of the wrist is one of the most common US examinations conducted in patients with rheumatological diseases. Ultrasonographic signs depend on the advancement of the disease. The examination is equally frequently conducted in patients with pain or swelling of the wrist due to non-rheumatological causes. The aim of this publication was to present ultrasound images

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

clinical settings, which describe the interplay of anatomical, mechanical and vascular factors, making the tendon inherently vulnerable to rupture(1,3). Ultrasonography (US) plays an important role in the assessment for the presence of EPL tendon ruptures. US depicts the tendon in real time and allows rapid assessment of its integrity(12), thereby providing a prompt diagnosis for the surgeon to plan their most appropriate course of action. The location of the incision is dependent on the level of the

Peripheral arterial response during haemodialysis – is two-dimensional speckle-tracking a useful arterial reactivity assessment tool?

allowed us to observe the arterial reaction to body fluid loss. The present study confirmed a decrease in carotid CS for the whole circumference after HD. The finding was contrary to our expectations. We assumed that after HD the CS values would be higher because of blood volume contraction and the resultant lower diastolic artery filling. The opposite result is probably due to compensatory mechanisms such as plasma refilling from the interstitial space, venoconstriction, and increased arterial tone

Assessment of the utility of ultrasonography with high-frequency transducers in the diagnosis of postoperative neuropathies

treatment of the median nerve (1), after surgical treatment of the ulnar nerve (2) and other postoperative neuropathies (3). All patients underwent the interview, physical examination and ultrasound examination. The ultrasound examinations were performed with Esaote MyLab 50 and MyLab 60 systems. Based on the clinical and US examinations, the patients were qualified for either surgical (51 cases) or conservative treatment (20 cases). An EMG examination was also performed in certain patients (60 cases
