Phyllodes tumors are an uncommon differential diagnosis of axillary mass

AbstractPhyllodes tumors are rare fibroepithelial neoplasm that account for less than 0.5% of all breast tumors and presentation in ectopic breast tissue is even rarer. In this paper, we describe a case of a phyllodes tumor in the ectopic breast tissue of the axilla. A 40-year-old woman presented with a well-circumscribed, firm, and freely mobile mass in the left axilla from 1  year ago. Ultrasound revealed a 5.5 × 4.5 × 4.5 cm homogenous and hypoecho lesion. The histopathologic analysis revealed that it was a benign phyllodes tumor. Phyllodes tumors in ectopic breast tissue may be confirmed to be a diagnostic difficulty, and this concept must be kept in mind whil e dealing with an axillary mass.

We present a case-based review of abdominal postoperative complications, organized by organ system affected, including wound/superficial, hepatobiliary, pancreatic, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and vascular complications. Both general complications and specific considerations for certain types of operations are described, as well as potential pitfalls that can be confused with complications. Representative cases are shown using all relevant imaging modalities, including CT, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, MRI, and nuclear medicine. Management options are also described, highlighting those that require radiologist input or int...

Abstract Abdominal pain is a common cause for emergency department visits in the United States, and biliary tract disease is the fifth most common cause of hospital admission. Common causes of acute hepatobiliary include gallstones and its associated complications and multiple other hepatobiliary etiologies, including infectious, inflammatory, vascular, and neoplastic causes. Postoperative complications of the biliary tract can result in an acute abdomen. Imaging of the hepatobiliary tree is integral in the diagnostic evaluation of acute hepatobiliary dysfunction, and imaging of the biliary tree requires a multimo...

Abstract There is a wide variety of causes of diffuse lung disease in the intensive care unit patient, of which adult respiratory distress syndrome is the commonest clinical consideration. Plain radiography, computed tomography, and ultrasound can be used synergistically to evaluate patients with diffuse lung disease and respiratory impairment. Imaging is not limited to characterization of the cause of diffuse lung disease but also aids in monitoring its evolution and in ventilator setting management. PMID: 31731896 [PubMed - in process]

This study aims to predict fetal weight at varying gestational age in the absence of ultrasound examination within a certain accuracy. We consider that machine learning can provide an accurate estimation for obstetricians alongside traditional clinical practices, as well as an efficient and effective support tool for pregnant women for self-monitoring. We present a robust methodology using a data set comprising 4,212 intrapartum recordings. The cubic spline function is used to fit the curves of several key characteristics that are extracted from ultrasound reports. A number of simple and powerful machine learning algorithm...
