Dynamic ultrasonography in the diagnosis of acute anterior cruciate ligament injury – a case report

Introduction In cases of acute anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, standard diagnostic methods have their limitations. When findings vary, or worse, are contradictory, a clinical problem arises, and decisions about necessary operative treatment might be compromised. The estimated sensitivity (SE) and specificity (SP) levels of physical examination (PE) and diagnostic tests are as follows: Lachman test 87.1%, 97%; pivot-shift test 49%, 97.5%; anterior drawer test 72.5%, 92.7%(1); magnetic

Intrapartum sonography – eccentricity or necessity?

Ultrasonography has been extensively used in obstetrics and gynecology since 1980’s.It found application in pediatric gynecology, procreation period, post-menopause, pregnancy monitoring and after delivery. Although the fi rst reports on the use of ultrasonography in assessing delivery mechanism were published in 1990’s, yet to date labor progress is evaluated by means of physical examination in most delivery units. Intrapartum sonography is not routinely performed despite the fact that

Mucinous borderline ovarian tumor: a case report with diagnostic insights on ultrasound findings

Borderline ovarian tumors represent about 10% of all epithelial ovarian cancers, but in contrast to epithelial ovarian cancers, they constitute a group of tumors with a much better prognosis. An assessment of clinical presentation, physical examination, radiological and biochemical findings is necessary to tailor management strategies for patients with ovarian tumors. The article, which is based on a case report, describes different approaches for preoperative diagnosis as well as discusses

Infraspinatus atrophy due to Bennett lesion causing suprascapular nerve palsy

Case report A 19-year-old professional volleyball player presented to the emergency department complaining of long-standing and progressively worsening right shoulder pain, which exacerbated during sports activity. Physical examination revealed right subtle supraspinatus and obvious infraspinatus muscle atrophy. The range of motion was preserved, and there were no signs of instability or muscle weakness. There was no neck pain, numbness, or tingling in her arm or any previous shoulder

Portal vein tumor thrombus from gastric cancer

Abstract A 53-year-old woman presented with left-sided abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting for the past 3 months with associated loss of appetite and weight. On physical examination, there was a large, ill-defined, firm mass at the epigastrium. Ultrasonography showed heterogeneously hypoechoic filling defect within the dilated main portal vein. The filling defect showed florid signals on Doppler mode and it appeared to be an extension of a larger periportal mass. Contrast enhanced abdominal

Bacterial meningitis in neonates and infants – the sonographic picture

Bacterial meningitis is a major diagnostic and therapeutic problem among children and neonates, with severe, rapidly progressing course and potentially life-threatening complications. Early antibacterial treatment is essential for the patient’s favorable prognosis. Cerebral imaging plays an important role in the diagnostic process alongside physical examination and laboratory tests. Magnetic resonance imaging is the gold standard for diagnosing bacterial meningitis. Because of limited

Sonoelastic response of median nerve to rehabilitation in carpal tunnel syndrome

Introduction Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most common type of neuropathy with a prevalence estimated at between 0.1–0.5%(1). The condition involves the entrapment of the median nerve under the flexor retinaculum, causing weakness, paresthesia and pain at the wrist and hand, and thus decreasing the quality of life. The severity of the disorder and effectiveness of any therapeutic intervention are typically determined by physical examination involving functional, performance and pain

The diagnosis and management of shoulder pain

Diagnosis is crucial in decision-making when treating a patient with shoulder pain. Ultrasound is also very important in the diagnostic and therapeutic pathway, especially when surgery is being considered. This article outlines the diagnostic pathway using the patient’s history, physical examination and ultrasound examination. It is important to correlate the clinical assessment with the imaging signs. It is also important to treat the patient and not the images as there may be abnormalities

The value of ultrasonography in the diagnosis of varicocele

, it is necessary to exclude renal tumor and extend diagnostic ultrasound with the assessment of the abdominal cavity. The diagnosis of varicocele is based on medical history and physical examination, which involves palpation and observation of the scrotum at rest and during the Valsalva maneuver. Ultrasound is the imaging method of choice. The width and the number of vessels in the pampiniform plexus as well as the evaluation and measurement of regurgitation during the Valsalva maneuver are

Capillary hemangioma of the testis. A case report of a rare benign tumor

This paper presents the case of a very rare capillary hemangioma of the testis in a 23-year-old patient. Physical examination revealed a tumor located in the upper pole of the left testis, which was suspected of being malignant due to its significantly increased density and irregular contours. Blood levels of the following tumor markers were determined: alpha-fetoprotein, human chorionic gonadotropin and lactate dehydrogenase. No abnormalities were found in any of these tests. A gray-scale

Abnormalities in physical examination include limited hip abduction, leg length discrepancy, and thigh or buttock fold asymmetry(2). The most sensitive clinical test to detect hip instability is the Ortolani maneuver, in which abducting the infant’s hip causes the dislocated femoral head to relocate into the acetabulum with a palpable clunk

The role of ultrasound and lymphoscintigraphy in the assessment of axillary lymph nodes in patients with breast cancer

node biopsy preceded by lymphoscintigraphy is used in breast cancer patients with no clinical signs of lymph node metastasis. Due to the limited sensitivity and specificity of physical examination in detecting metastatic lesions, developing an appropriate diagnostic algorithm for the preoperative assessment of axillary lymph nodes seems to be a challenge. The importance of ultrasound in patient qualification for sentinel lymph-node biopsy has been discussed in a number of works. Furthermore
