UkaonuAbsractObjectiveTo determine the significance of intravesical prostatic protrusion in evaluation of bladder outlet obstruction from benign prostatic enlargement in Jos, Nigeria.Patients and MethodA hospital based cross-sectional prospective study that included patients who presented to the Urology clinic of Jos University Teaching Hospital, Jos, Nigeria with clinical features of BPE. Each had IPSS, Qmax, IPP, PV, PVR and PSA measured. IPP was measured through transabdominal ultrasound scan along mid sagittal view in millimetre using a curvilinear probe 3.5 MHz. IPP was divided into three grades (grade I: 10 mm). Statistical analysis was done using SPSS® version 20 (SPSS, IBM, Chicago, IL, USA). Appropriate test statistics were used with p-value

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...

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.

We reported a case of intermittent massive upper gastrointestinal bleeding in a 33-year-old man with cholangiocarcinoma who underwent surgical resection followed by chemoradiation. A portoduodenal fistula due to chronic duodenal ulceration was identified. The bleeding was successfully controlled by endoscopic ultrasound-guided coil placement through the duodenal bulb using the anchoring technique. Follow-up endoscopy and computed tomography scan showed multiple coil placements between a part of the portal vein and the duodenal bulb without any evidence of portal vein thrombosis. There were no complications, and bleeding di...

AbstractObjectivesAutomated ultrasound of the breast has the advantage to have the whole breast scanned by technicians. Consequently, feedback to the radiologist about concurrent focal abnormalities (e.g., palpable lesions) is lost. To enable marking of patient- or physician-reported focal abnormalities, we aimed to develop skin markers that can be used without disturbing the interpretability of the image.MethodsDisk-shaped markers were casted out of silicone. In this IRB-approved prospective study, 16 patients were included with a mean age of 57 (39 –85). In all patients, the same volume was imaged twice using an au...

The present study investigated the effect of microencapsulation strategy on the processing stability of mulberry polyphenols (MP). The optimal preparation parameters for MP-β-cyclodextrin microcapsule (MPM) were treated by ultrasound at 450 W, 25 °C for 1.5 h w...

CONCLUSIONS: Sapheno-femoral junction morphology may affect recurrent varicose veins formation. In particular, a concomitant incompetence of the accessory saphenous vein or its directly confluence into the SFJ could represent an indication to simultaneous treatment by non-surgical techniques (RTA or laser) and avoid surgical ligation.

We describe a case of a staphylococcal lung abscess in a teenage girl with CF who presented with a two-week history of non-specific malaise followed by two days of left posterior chest pain and fever. A chest radiograph was consistent with a left sided pulmonary abscess, which was confirmed on a CT scan of the chest. The abscess was drained under ultrasound guidance and cultured methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus. The patient responded well to antibiotic treatment with the abscess cavity showing complete radiological resolution by six weeks post drainage.
