Authors: Ryu S, Chang Y, Kim YS, Kim HJ Abstract OBJECTIVES: We aimed to examine the relationship between sitting time and the development of ultrasonography-diagnosed gallstone disease (GSD) in young and middle-aged Korean men and women. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We conducted a cohort study of 147,237 participants without GSD at baseline who underwent a health checkup examination between 2011 and 2015 and were followed annually or biennially until December 2016. Sitting time and physical activity were measured using the validated Korean version of the international physical activity questionnaire short form. GSD w...

Amir A. Zadpoor A rigid surface–volume registration scheme is presented in this study to register computed tomography (CT) and free-hand tracked ultrasound (US) images of the talocrural joint. Prior to registration, bone surfaces expected to be visible in US are extracted from the CT volume and bone contours in 2D US data are enhanced based on monogenic signal representation of 2D US images. A 3D monogenic signal data is reconstructed from the 2D data using the position of the US probe recorded with an optical tracking system. When registering the surface extracted from the CT scan to the monogenic signal fe...

Conclusion and significance: Non-invasive 3-D surveillance of arteriovenous fistulae is possible, and a patient-specific geometry was created using ultrasound and optical tracking. Access to this non-invasive 3-D surveillance technique will enable future studies to determine patient-specific remodeling behavior, in terms of geometry and hemodynamics over time.

AbstractPurposeCerebral palsy (CP) is a disorder characterized by an increased muscle stiffness that can be contingent on both neurological and biomechanical factors. The neurological aspects are related to hyper-excitability of the stretch reflex, while the biomechanical factors are related to modifications in muscle structure. We used smart-shear wave elastography (S-SWE) to analyze muscle properties and to compare shear wave speed in soleus muscles of patients affected by CP and typically developing children.MethodsWe enrolled 21 children (15 males and 6 females; age range 3 –16) with spastic hemiplegia CP and 21 ...

CONCLUSION: - in cases of a bilateral second branchial arch sinus, the branchio-oto-renal (BOR) or branchio-otic (BO) syndromes must be excluded; - ultrasound scan can be used for the thorough evaluation of the sinus anatomic course and the relationship with the adjacent anatomic structures; - rompt diagnosis and early therapeutic intervention, even during neonatal period, ensures an uneventful post-operation course.

In conclusion, the results of the present study indicate that LFU and microbubbles combined with simvastatin promotes the apoptosis of MCF‑7 cells via the LATS1/YAP/RHAMM pathway. The present study suggested a possible strategy for the treatment of breast cancer. PMID: 30015955 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Whole-body PET/CT and abdominal ultrasound complement each other in the staging of uveal melanoma. Benign hepatic abnormalities found using ultrasound is common. Of importance, a second asymptomatic primary malignancy associated with uveal melanoma was detected almost one in 10 patients.
