The Validation of Ultrasound-Guided Target Segment Identification in Thoracic Spine as Confirmed by Fluoroscopy.

Conclusions: Ultrasound-guided detection using the 12th rib as a starting landmark for scanning could be a promising technique for successful target segment identification in the thoracic spine. PMID: 29201300 [PubMed - in process]

BOSTON (CBS) – There has been some concern that prenatal ultrasounds could increase the risk of autism in children but a new study suggests otherwise. Researchers at Boston Medical Center looked at more than 400 kids born at the hospital and found that the mothers of those with autism had no more prenatal ultrasounds and no greater duration of ultrasound exposure than moms of kids without autism. In fact, the kids with autism had on average less ultrasound exposure during the 1st and 2nd trimesters than the other children. The study did raise one question. Does the depth of the ultrasound scan make a difference? The ...

CONCLUSIONS: REVAS remain a major and still unsolved problem in patients following varicose veins surgery. Their clinical pictures and symptoms are heterogeneous and require a watchful analysis in order to identify both etiology and natural history. PMID: 29385790 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractChronic pain is a common medical condition. Patients who suffer uncontrolled chronic pain may require interventions including spinal injections and various nerve blocks. Interventional procedures have evolved and improved over time since epidural injection was first introduced for low back pain and sciatica in 1901. One of the major contributors in the improvement of these interventions is the advancement of imaging guidance technologies. The utilization of image guidance has dramatically improved the accuracy and safety of these interventions. The first image guidance technology adopted by pain specialists was flu...

ery D Abstract INTRODUCTION: Obesity impairs the quality of ultrasound images. All ultrasound scanners are calibrated for an ultrasound propagation velocity of 1540 m/s, although the propagation in fatty tissue is slower (1450 m/s). Our objective was to evaluate the quality of images obtained considering various ultrasound propagation velocities, in situation of mid-trimester fetal scans in obese women. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This cross-sectional study collected image triplets of four recommended scanning planes from 32 obese pregnant women at their mid-trimester fetal scan. Each of them was built with images...

Conclusion Although PUS remains the gold standard for the diagnosis of PCOS in most cases, its limitations in overweight and obese girls are real and must be considered. If utilization of endovaginal transducer not being feasible in young virginal girls, PMRI could be a useful alternative, allowing greater delineation of structural components of the ovary and better appreciation of both its volume and structural alterations.
