By HUGH HARVEY I’ve previously written comprehensively on where to invest in Radiology AI, and how to beat the hype curve precipice the field is entering. For those that haven’t read my previous blog, my one line summary is essentially this: “Choose companies with a narrow focus on clinically valid use cases with large data sets, who are engaged with regulations and haven’t over-hyped themselves …” The problem is… hardly any investment opportunities in Radiology AI like this actually exist, especially in the UK. I thought it’s about time I wrote down my ideas for what I...

Conclusion Management of breast fibromatosis remains controversial because of the low incidence and further efforts needed to establish evidence-based treatment guidelines.

Rationale: Infantile desmoid fibromatosis of the postcricoid area is a rare disease and is characterized by a proliferation of fibrous tissue with non-metastasis, local infiltration, and a high rate of recurrence after surgical resection. Currently, ultrasound is scarcely used in the hypopharynx and larynx area. Patient concerns: A 4-year-old boy presented with hoarseness, deep voice and snoring for 2∼4 years without any surgical history. On sonography, the lesion was found in the postcricoid area, and the left larynx showed impaired mobility in real time observation. Complete excision with a negative margin in th...

Desmoid tumors are uncommon neoplasms that are also termed desmoid-type fibromatosis and aggressive fibromatosis. Although desmoids lack metastatic potential, they often exhibit aggressive local invasion. Desmoid tumors have a typical but nonspecific appearance on multiple imaging modalities, including computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasound. Radiology plays an integral role with imaging and intervention in the management of these tumors as their location and relationship to adjacent structures determines the optimal treatment pathway.

ConclusionsEarly experience with percutaneous ultrasound-guided cryoablation to treat painful plantar fibromas suggests that it is a safe and effective treatment option, with early and near-complete symptom improvement.

We report a case of a 39-year-old woman with resistant hypertension and renal dysfunction. The patient was hospitalized 3 months earlier for dyspnea at the Department of Cardiology, where she was diagnosed with heart failure (left ventricle injection fraction: 25–30%), pulmonary hypertension, chronic kidney disease (serum creatinine: 1.58 mg/dl), and resistant hypertension and discharged with optimal heart failure treatment. At presentation to our clinic, apart from uncontrolled hypertension for more than 10 years and history of pre-eclampsia and fetal loss, the patient had obesity (BMI: 38 kg/m2) and facial fibr...

Authors: Di Stasio D, Lauritano D, Paparella R, Franco R, Montella M, Serpico R, Lucchese A Abstract Oral mucosa is constantly under the influence of various internal and external stimuli, therefore it is interested by a range of developmental disorders, irritation, inflammation, and neoplastic conditions. Traumatic fibroma is one of these lesions. The aim of this work is to obtain an ultrasound characterization of a lip fibroma with a high frequency probe (8-18 MHz) as feasibility and experimental model of this non-invasive technique in the oral mucosa compared with its histo-pathological section. Ultrasound chara...

Conclusions: The risk of malignancy of benign appearing purely solid adnexal masses in asymptomatic postmenopausal women is low. Conservative management of these lesions might be an option.

Although her parents were warned she might not breathe when she was born, the moment Francesca Durkos came into this world, she let out a gutsy cry. “It was music to our ears,” says her mom. Michelle Carino Durkos was 40 weeks pregnant when she learned there was a tumor attached to her unborn daughter’s heart — a tumor so large that doctors near her home in Pensacola, Florida, were unsure if the baby would live. “It was a shock, because at 20 weeks everything was normal,” says Michelle. “We had a wonderful ultrasound; we saw all four chambers.” Yet, call it a mother’s i...

AbstractPlantar fascia (PF) disorders commonly cause heel pain and disability in the general population. Imaging is often required to confirm diagnosis. This review article aims to provide simple and systematic guidelines for imaging assessment of PF disease, focussing on key findings detectable on plain radiography, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Sonographic characteristics of plantar fasciitis include PF thickening, loss of fibrillar structure, perifascial collections, calcifications and hyperaemia on Doppler imaging. Thickening and signal changes in the PF as well as oedema of adjacent soft tissues and...
