A 1-month-old boy presented to the pediatric urologist with antenatally detected hydronephrosis. He was born at 39 weeks via cesarean delivery with no history of oligo or polyhydramnios. His parents described some straining and grunting with urination. Renal ultrasound showed bilateral duplicated collecting systems with grade 4 hydronephrosis of the right upper and lower poles. The patient was receiving antibiotic prophylaxis with amoxicillin and had not had any urinary tract infections. MAG3 nuclear medicine renal scan showed minimal function in the right upper pole.

(Ruhr-University Bochum) Thanks to a new method of analyzing ultrasound images, conventional scanners can be used for generating high-res images of blood vessels in tumors. This approach makes it easier to distinguish between different types of tumors, and it facilitates the tracking of the progress and success of chemotherapy.

Publication date: Available online 17 April 2018 Source:The Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Author(s): Seema Patel Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is an endocrine disorder, afflicting females of reproductive age. This syndrome leads to infertility, apart from a gamut of other metabolic co-morbidities such as insulin resistance, obesity, cardiovascular problems, including a litany of other health issues. PCOS is a polygenic, polyfactorial, systemic, inflammatory, dysregulated steroid state, autoimmune disease, manifesting largely due to lifestyle errors. The advent of biochemical tests and ultrasound...

In a circular scanning photoacoustic computed tomography (PAT/PACT) system, a single-element ultrasound transducer (SUT) (rotates in full 360 ° around the sample) or a full-ring array transducer is used to acquire the photoacoustic (PA) data from the target object. SUT takes several minutes ...

Authors: Mustafa J, Asher I, Sthoeger Z Abstract BACKGROUND: Upper extremity deep vein thrombosis (UEDVT) is defined as thrombosis of the deep venous system (subclavian, axillary, brachial, ulnar, and radial veins), which drains the upper extremities. It can be caused by thoracic outlet anatomic obstruction, such as Paget-Schroetter syndrome, (primary) or by central intravenous catheters (secondary). UEDVT may be asymptomatic or present with acute severe pain and arm swelling. Clinical suspicion should be confirmed by diagnostic imaging procedures such as duplex ultrasound, computed tomography scan, or magnetic res...

We present two cases of abdominal pregnancy, one primary and another secondary, both diagnosed and successfully managed in our institution. The first patient, a para 2 at 14 weeks gestation, presented with abdominal pain, distension, and dizziness, which had started four days prior. The initial radiological scan reported an intrauterine pregnancy with ascites, but a bedside ultrasound revealed an empty uterus and a viable pregnancy located in the Pouch of Douglas (POD). This was a secondary abdominal pregnancy managed successfully by laparotomy. The second patient, a para 3 + 4 miscarriages with seven weeks amenorrhea was ...

ConclusionsB-lines, subpleural consolidations, and cystic changes are suggestive of PJP. Lung consolidation with air bronchograms and pleural effusion should prompt suspicion of other etiologies. These findings have the potential to be useful in the daily management of HIV-positive patients in resource-limited settings where other diagnostic tools are rarely available.

Giuseppe Cicero, Tommaso D'angelo, Sergio Racchiusa, Ignazio Salamone, Carmela Visalli, Antonio Bottari, Alfredo Blandino, Silvio MazziottiJournal of Clinical Imaging Science 2018 8(1):14-14 Clinical evaluation and ultrasound examination are the first steps in the evaluation of a patient with a swelling of the parotid region. After the detection of a nodular lesion, cytological or histological confirmation is usually performed to achieve the diagnosis, while the choice of cross-sectional imaging (computed tomography scan and magnetic resonance imaging) may significantly vary from one physician to another, on the basis...
