Authors: Korcakova E, Mirka H, Liska V, Hosek P, Bajcurova K Abstract AIM: Our research evaluated the ability of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) and contrast enhanced computer tomography (CECT), performed 48 h after radiofrequency ablation (RFA), to detect residual tumor tissue. As recently published studies have evaluated periprocedural CEUS performed within 24 h after procedure and their results were not satisfactory, it seems that postponing the control test by one day could increase the sensitivity of both methods. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We evaluated 33 patients with 37 lesions, who met the criteria for ...

ConclusionThe metabolomic signature of second trimester maternal serum from pregnancies affected by a fetal central nervous system anomaly is quantifiably different from that of a normal pregnancy. Maternal serum metabolomics is therefore a promising tool for the accurate and sensitive screening of such congenital defects. Moreover, the details of the most relevant metabolites and their respective biochemical pathways allow better understanding of the overall pathophysiology of affected pregnancies.

The ultrasound-assisted oxysulfonylation of different alkenes using sodium salts of organosulfinic acids under air atmosphere is described. The reaction is chemo- and regioselective and the corresponding β -keto-sulfones were obtained in good yields as major products. The use of ultrasound greatly accelerated the formation of products when compared to the conventional methods.

In this work, it was developed an alternative analytical strategy for the preparation of vegetal samples extracted with diluted acids and assisted by ultrasound and microwave radiation for the determination of nutrients elements by fast sequential flame atomic absorption spectrometer. The conditions optimized using univariate and multivariate methodologies for the procedure were as follows: 200 mg of sample; extraction solution comprising a mixture of 6.3 mL HNO3, 2.1 mL HCl, and 1.7 mL CH3COOH; extractor with a final concentration of 2.5 mol L-1; a sonication time of 30 min; and a microwave radiation time of 6 s. The accu...

Authors: Socolov D, Scripcaru D, Ferariu D, Socolov R, Carauleanu A, Ilea C, Danciu M Abstract PEComas represent a rare class of mesenchymal tumors, with different primary locations. There are less than 100 cases of uterine PEComas published in English literature until now and information considering imaging features of these PEComas is very limited, focusing on CT and MRI and not as much on ultrasounds (US). The authors present here a case of rapidly growing uterine PEComa, with local invasive potential and recurrence, and the review of literature on US characteristics of PEComas. Harboring a hyperechogeneous hete...

This study was designed to evaluate the use of human epididymis protein 4 (HE4) as a biomarker in the differential diagnosis of malignant and benign endometrial tumours. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study, conducted between July 2009 and June 2014, included a total of 150 patients with endometrioid adenocarcinoma and a control group of 150 patients with benign endometrial lesions. The serum of all patients was analyzed with respect to HE4 and CA125 levels. The median and ranges of serum levels were determined in relation to histological results. The statistical analysis procedure employed in this study utilized logarithm...

Six months ago, I had severe right flank pain. In the ER, I had an ultrasound showing a possible kidney stone. I deferred a CT scan and went home with medication. I fit the textbook picture: I had abnormal imaging, and I was given a treatment and discharged. I was advised to return if the pain worsened or failed to resolve. I briefly improved, but then the pain returned much worse. Ten days later, I returned to the ER. I was given ketorolac and had a CT, which showed no stone. The ER attending advised me to go home and take ibuprofen. At that point, my pain was 8/10, and I was having significant trouble moving despite the ...
