MRI is it complementary or mandatory to ultrasound in classification of different congenital anomalies of female reproductive tract?

ConclusionThe use of diverse imaging modalities, in conjunction with clinical information, provided important clues to the diagnosis of MDAs. The imaging work-up for MDAs usually begins with ultrasound. Although it might have been suffice to detect the presence of a uterine abnormality, MRI was generally needed to classify the abnormality into a specific MDA category.

CONCLUSIONS: A 4-hour introductory eFAST training intervention can effectively train conventional military medics to perform the eFAST exam. Online, asynchronously available platforms may effectively mitigate some of the resource requirement burden associated with point-of-care ultrasound training. Future studies evaluating medic eFAST performance on real-world battlefield trauma patients are needed. Skill and knowledge retention must also be assessed for this degradable skill to determine frequency of refresher training when not regularly performed.

Peripheral FMD was lower in young healthy smokers than that in nonsmokers, indicating that habitual smoking attenuates peripheral endothelial function. In contrast, cerebral endothelial function was preserved in young healthy smokers. These findings suggest that the response of cerebral endothelial function to smoking is different from that of peripheral vasculature. AbstractIn the present study, we hypothesized that habitual cigarette smoking attenuates endothelial function in the cerebral circulation as well as that of the peripheral circulation in young adults. To test this hypothesis, we measured cerebrovascular and pe...

Anyone have any cool ultrasounds that are highly mobile and have a relatively decent picture? The Butterfly IQ US looks really cool at a decent price (especially considering it's 3 probes in one), but it requires an annual subscription. I'm not doing. Looking for something that could be used in a field environment for everything from starting IVs and draining abscesses to eFAST exams. Thanks

This study aimed to analyse the features of lymphadenopathy and estimate the role of imaging methods, including computed tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography-CT (PET/CT), in the diagnosis of lymphadenopathy in patients with POEMS syndrome. We conducted a retrospective analysis of 23 patients with confirmed POEMS syndrome. All of the patients received chest and abdominal CT scan and/or superficial ultrasound examinations. Four patients underwent PET/CT examinations, and 6 patients received lymph node biopsies. Enlarged lymph nodes (short diameter ≥ 1 cm) were found in 48% (11/23) of patients, but only 1 patie...

CONCLUSIONS: VTE occurrence in this real-world patient cohort was high, reaching almost 20% in certain groups, like those with disseminated pancreatic, lung or ovarian cancer receiving first-line chemotherapy. Furthermore, VTE occurs mostly as a symptomatic event, being likely a result of the prothrombotic state of malignancy. PMID: 32057213 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Ultrasound-based elastography has rapidly replaced the need for liver biopsy in most patients with chronic liver disease in recent years. The technique is now widely supported by many manufacturers. This review will introduce various current ultrasound-based elastography techniques, review the physics and scanning techniques, discuss potential cofounding factors as well as summarising the evidence for its use in staging liver fibrosis using shear-wave elastography among different disease aetiologies.

The local anesthetic dosages used in the current literature in regional applications of local anesthetics are frequently high for surgical purposes, and there are no sufficient dosage studies for emergency department (ED) management.

In this work, we aimed to design ligands-conjugated, nanosized, lipid ultrasound contrast agents (UCAs) and apply the agents in the ultrasound imaging of atherosclerotic plaque. Anti-VEGFR-2 ligands were conjugated to UCAs using the noncovalent biotin-avidin linker method. Several investiga...

Gardner, Tarun PandeyAbstractSoft-tissue sarcomas are a diverse group of rare mesenchymal malignancies accounting for only 1% of all solid adult malignancies. These have been categorized in 12 broad groups by the World Health Organization (WHO) with their recent update in 2013. Majority of them lack specific imaging features serving as imaging conundrums for a radiologist. These are often large masses at presentat...
