Conclusions These findings indicate that the mechanical responses of the deep dorsal neck muscles differ between individuals with WAD and healthy controls, possibly reflecting that these muscles use altered strategies while performing a neck extension task. This finding provides new insight into neck muscles pathology in patients with chronic WAD and may help improve rehabilitation programs.

We present a rare case of acute tibialis posterior gouty tenosynovitis. An 82-year-old man with a history of well-controlled gout presented with acute onset of left ankle pain, occurring without inciting event. The medial ankle was slightly erythematous with moderate dorsal-medial swelling and mild dorsal-lateral swelling, with severe tenderness to palpation over the medial retro-malleolar region. Range of motion and manual muscle testing were pain limited throughout. Ultrasound examination revealed a left posterior tibialis tendon sheath tenosynovitis with effusion and overlying soft tissue edema. Tendon sheath aspirate r...
Authors: Mihcin S, Melzer A Abstract Focused ultrasound (FUS/HIFU) relies on ablation of pathological tissues by delivering a sufficiently high level of acoustic energy in situ of the human body. Magnetic Resonance guided FUS (MRgFUS/HIFU) and Ultrasound guided (USgFUS/HIFU) are image guided techniques combined with therapeutic FUS for monitoring purposes. The principles and technologies of FUS/HiFU are described in this paper including the basics of MR guidance techniques and MR temperature mapping. Clinical applications of FUS/HIFU gained CE and FDA approvals for the treatment of various benign and few malignant ...

Conclusion Detection of KRAS or p53 mutation in plasma is not an effective screening tool for pancreatic cancer because accumulation of multiple mutations is required for malignant transformation in the pancreas.
CONCLUSIONS: Diagnostic ultrasound is used to assess venous and arterial disease and guide appropriate treatment for ulcers. Therapeutic low-frequency ultrasound is used to debride the wound bed, as an adjunctive topical wound treatment with standard of care, and to guide the application of other advanced therapies to chronic wounds. Better trial designs and consistent data are needed to support the effectiveness of ultrasound therapy on venous and arterial ulcers.
