Incidence of intrauterine abnormalities in Pakistani women with unexplained infertility diagnosed via saline infusion sonography

Objective: To determine the frequency of intrauterine abnormalities in women with unexplained infertility using saline infusion sonography. Material and methods: This was a retrospective cohort study conducted at Aziz medical centre, Karachi, Pakistan between January and December 2015. The study population comprised of women with unexplained infertility who underwent saline infusion sonography as a part of their diagnostic workup. The frequency of uterine abnormalities in these women was

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

referred for sonography for further evaluation. The patient had no significant medical history and denied having fever or trauma to the scrotum. Physical examination revealed a 3.0 cm painless, slightly mobile and well-circumscribed, rubbery mass adjacent to but separate from the left testis. The skin overlying the mass was normal. Sonography of the scrotum demonstrated normal left and right testes and normal blood flow on Doppler imaging. An additional well-defined solid, oval mass measuring 3.0 × 2.0

Studies showing improved clinical pregnancy rates in women with unexplained infertility after removal of unsuspected polyps are being reported.

Usefulness of Doppler sonography in aesthetic medicine

Introduction Skin imaging is a relatively new, yet dynamically developing, field of ultrasonography. Advances in ultrasound are correlated with those in imaging technology. The development of aesthetic medicine and the need for safe and effective procedures, as well as the need to diagnose and treat potential complications are also important. The number of publications on the use of sonography in dermatology and aesthetic medicine has grown recently(1). Their authors pointed to the usefulness

and make the artifact clearer. This phenomenon is usually easily recognizable and avoidable, but it sometimes might cause diagnostic difficulty. Obtaining an image of double abdominal vessels on ultrasound examination in transverse sections requires further inspection of the aorta in a different (sagittal) plane. This is not always possible due to poor patient preparation for scanning. Symmetrical flow on Doppler sonography is a typical feature of this artifact. Finally, magnetic resonance imaging

Knee joint pain and disability is one of the most common musculoskeletal disorders that accounts for the greatest proportion of visits to orthopedic clinics(1). >Knee joint sonography is the second common examination technique after shoulder sonography.
