A patient sent me this emailI had a query. I have conceived through IVF and ET was on Jan 6 th and my LMP was on Dec 20th.I got my ultrasound done on 16th Feb and in scan it showed the pregnancy is 5 weeks 6 days.If I calculate the growth of the baby from the date of the transfer, this seems fine, but if I calculate from the date of the LMP , it seems to be lagging behind.I am completely confused - can you please help ?This is a common problem, because IVF patients use their common sense and assume that doctors would calculate pregnancy dates based on the age of the embryo. Since they know the date of the embryo transfer, ...

In the decades since the introduction of ultrasound into routine obstetric practice, the advantages of ultrasound have moved beyond the simple ability to identify multiple pregnancies antenatally to the possibility of screening them for fetal anomalies, pre-eclampsia, preterm birth, and the complications specific to monochorionic pregnancies. Screening studies have often excluded twins because physiological differences impact on the validity and sensitivity of the screening tests in routine use in singletons, and therefore, the evidence of screening performance in multiple pregnancy lags behind the evidence from singleton pregnancies.

Effect of pretreatment with gonadotropin-releasing hormone analog GnRH-α on high-intensity focused ultrasound ablation for diffuse adenomyosis: a preliminary study. Int J Hyperthermia. 2018 Feb 15;:1-19 Authors: Zhang XY, Guo YS, Chen JM, Wang JJ, Ye H, Zang CY, Duan H Abstract OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of GnRH-α pretreatment with HIFU ablation for diffuse adenomyosis. METHODS: From January 2014 to December 2016, 61 patients were divided into two groups. Twenty-three patients with larger uteri received pretreatment with GnRH-αand were then subjected to HIFU, ...

AbstractPlacement of a central venous catheter (CVC) in the brachiocephalic vein (BCV) via the ultrasound (US)-guided supraclavicular approach was recently described in children. We aimed to determine the CVC maintenance-related complications at this site compared to the others (i.e., the femoral, the subclavian, and the jugular). We performed a retrospective data collection of prospectively registered data on CVC in young children hospitalized in a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) during a 4-year period (May 2011 to May 2015). The primary outcome was a composite of central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI...

Authors: Farrell SA Abstract OBJECTIVE: To provide clinical guidelines for the evaluation of women with stress urinary incontinence prior to primary anti-incontinence surgery. OPTIONS: The modalities of evaluation range from basic pelvic examination through to the use of adjuncts including ultrasound and urodynamic testing. OUTCOMES: These guidelines provide a comprehensive approach to the preoperative evaluation of urinary incontinence to ensure that excessive evaluation is avoided without sacrificing diagnostic accuracy. EVIDENCE: Published opinions of experts, supplemented by evidence from clinical t...

Authors: Lim K, Butt K, Crane JM Abstract OBJECTIVES: To review (1) the use of ultrasonographic-derived cervical length measurement in predicting preterm birth and (2) interventions associated with a short cervical length. OUTCOMES: Reduction in rates of prematurity and/or better identification of those at risk, as well as possible prevention of unnecessary interventions. EVIDENCE: Published literature was retrieved through searches of PubMed and The Cochrane Library up to December 2009, using appropriate controlled vocabulary and key words (preterm labour, ultrasound, cervix, incompetent cervix, transvagin...

ace Pancreas cancer is a lethal cancer as the majority patients are diagnosed at an advanced incurable stage. Despite improvements in diagnostic modalities and management strategies, including surgery and chemotherapies, the outcome of pancreas cancer remains poor. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is an important imaging tool for pancreas cancer. For decades, resected pancreas cancer and other cancer specimens have been used to identify tissue biomarkers or genomics for precision therapy; however, only 20% of patients undergo surgery, and thus, this framework is not useful for unresectable pancreas cancer. With advancements...

Conclusions Ultrasound elastography is helpful for the diagnosis of lymph node metastases in patients with head and neck cancer. Due to its non-invasive character, it can be used safety in combination with other radiological techniques to support or improve their diagnostic performance.

Confirmation of the endotracheal tube placement (CoETP) has the utmost importance in the management of an airway. Visualization of tracheal rings or carina with a fiber-optical bronchoscope (FOB) has considered to be a reliable method for the CoETP. However, FOB is expensive, time-consuming, and not always practical. Inexpensive endoscopic USB-cameras were shown to aid intubation successfully and reliably. On the other hand, there have been no studies investigating their use for the CoETP. Tracheal ultrasonography (TUS) is also a new, inexpensive and widely available alternative.
