Cambridge Consultants, a UK firm, and OmniVision, based in California, have developed an impressive intravascular camera. It produces native images at 400 x 400 pixel resolution, considerably better than existing fiber-optic angioscopes, but engineer...

Publication date: November 2018Source: Journal of Vascular Surgery: Venous and Lymphatic Disorders, Volume 6, Issue 6Author(s): Jan Sloves, Jose Ignacio AlmeidaAbstractVenous duplex ultrasound imaging of the retroperitoneal iliac veins and vena cava has been slow to be adopted into everyday use; however, current ultrasound technology allows more depth of penetration with improved image resolution. Gray-scale, color flow, and pulsed wave Doppler modalities are ideal for evaluation of the femoral-iliocaval outflow tract. Additional tools, such as chroma tint, power Doppler, and penetration harmonics, are useful for image opt...
ConclusionsOur current protocol of lower extremity venous DU is not an effective tool in diagnosis of iliac vein thrombosis. All patients with clinically suspected iliac vein thrombosis should be evaluated with specific pelvic ultrasound protocols or cross-sectional imaging.

This study verified the value of a computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) technique assisting in ultrasonography (US) diagnosis of 2-deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose (18FDG)-avid thyroid incidentalomas on positron emission tomography. A total of 82 18FDG-avid thyroid incidentalomas from 74 non-thyroid cancer patients were retrospectively analyzed with respect to US and CAD parameters (anechoic area, hyper-echoic foci, hypo-echogenicity, heterogeneity, margin, taller-than-wide shape, eccentric area) and were compared with 38 other non-18FDG-avid nodules found in the same patient group.
We demonstrated that sound can push fluid through a tissue-mimicking material. Although acoustic streaming in tissue has been proposed as a mechanism for biomedical ultrasound applications, such as neuromodulation and enhanced drug penetration, streaming in tissue or acoustic phantoms has not been directly observed. We developed a material that mimics the porous structure of tissue and used a dye and a video camera to track fluid movement. When applied above an acoustic intensity threshold, a continuous focused ultrasound beam (spatial peak time average intensity: 238 W/cm2, centre frequency: 5 MHz) was found to push the d...
ConclusionsThe thickening of the pulleys in the flexor tendons is an easy-to-detect sign with good sensitivity for the diagnosis of PsA. Its specificity and positive predictive value are not very high; however, if it is included in a complete classification process, sonographers should report it during hand evaluations of patients with arthritis.
