This report describes the case of a 15-year-old female with constitutional symptoms evolving for a year, combined with headache, nausea, and vomiting, in addition to frequent visits to emergency services and insufficient clinical examination. The patient worsened significantly six months after the onset of symptoms and developed acute pulmonary edema, oliguria, acute kidney injury, and difficult-to-control hypertension, at which point she was admitted for intensive care and hemodialysis. Initial ultrasound examination showed she had normal kidneys and stenosis-free renal arteries. The patient was still anuric after 30 days...

[Acute abdomen - a practical approach]. Radiologe. 2019 Jan 16;: Authors: Kulinna-Cosentini C, Röhrich S, Arnoldner MA Abstract CLINICAL PROBLEM: Acute abdomen describes a critical clinical condition which includes a heterogeneous group of clinical presentations. Several diseases require immediate surgical treatment. Therefore, fast radiological assessment is demanded. STANDARD RADIOLOGICAL METHODS: Stable patients presenting at the emergency department with acute abdominal pain require an abdominal x‑ray, an ultrasound examination and/or a computed tomography (CT) scan...

Publication date: Available online 15 January 2019Source: Food ChemistryAuthor(s): Junzhou Ding, Jodee Johnson, YiFang Chu, Hao FengAbstractPower ultrasound as an emerging processing technology has been investigated for stimulating seeds to enhance germination and accumulation of health-promoting metabolites, such as γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and phenolic compounds. This work was undertaken to evaluate the effects of power ultrasound (25 kHz) on the nutritional properties of germinated oats, and the microstructure of oat groats after treatment. The changes in the external and internal microstructures of the ultrasou...

By Sandee LaMotte, CNN (CNN) — Here’s another reason why getting a good night’s sleep should be on your must-do list: Sleeping fewer than six hours a night or waking frequently raises your risk of developing damaging plaque in arteries throughout your body, not just your heart. Previous research has shown poor sleep to be strongly associated with coronary heart disease, but “This is the first study to show that objectively measured sleep is independently associated with atherosclerosis throughout the body,” José Ordovás, director of nutrition and genomics at the Jean Mayer USDA H...

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), a condition of extra fat buildup in the liver, is on the rise — it now affects roughly 20% to 40% of the US population. It usually doesn’t cause any symptoms, and is often first detected by accident when an imaging study (such as an abdominal ultrasound, CT scan, or MRI) is requested for another reason. A fatty liver may also be identified on an imaging test as a part of investigating abnormal liver blood tests. NAFLD is intimately related to conditions like diabetes and obesity. It’s also linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Understanding NAFLD...

Abstract The inter-fragmentary gap size (IFGS) is a critical factor affecting the propensity of bone healing. In this paper, we present a study to analyze ultrasound strain elastographic numerical features in samples with distinct IFGS using both simulations and experiments. Six fractured rabbit hind leg samples in total were used in this study with controlled IFGS of 1 mm, 5 mm and 1 cm. For the simulation, computed tomography (CT) scans of all six samples were used to create solid models. Finite element analysis (FEA) and subsequent elastography simulations were performed on the 3D models to...

CONCLUSION:: Sonographic patterns based on high resolution ultrasonography provide early clues to the non-invasive diagnosis of primary cutaneous lymphomas and PET-CT is the recommended modality of imaging for staging and follow-up. ADVANCES IN KNOWLEDGE:: High resolution ultrasound with colour Doppler and PET-CT imaging are complimentary to the clinical diagnosis of primary cutaneous lymphomas.

CONCLUSION: Scar endometriosis may be difficult to diagnose as it is an unfamiliar entity to general surgeons. This condition can be confused with other surgical conditions. Imaging methods, such as ultrasound or CT-scan should be used for differential diagnosis. The prevention of scar endometriosis may also be important. Surgical excision is the treatment of choice for scar endometriosis. KEY WORDS: Abdominal wall, Caesarian, Endometriosis, Scar. PMID: 30588917 [PubMed - in process]
