There is a wide variety of causes of diffuse lung disease in the intensive care unit patient, of which adult respiratory distress syndrome is the commonest clinical consideration. Plain radiography, computed tomography, and ultrasound can be used synergistically to evaluate patients with diffuse lung disease and respiratory impairment. Imaging is not limited to characterization of the cause of diffuse lung disease but also aids in monitoring its evolution and in ventilator setting management.

ConclusionThere are numerous reports of the minimally invasive repair of CSD; however, it remains unknown in the obstetrical literature when interventions are required. Patients with minimal myometrial thinning and without evidence of serosal dehiscence may not require repair of the defect. More evidence is needed to observe obstetrical outcomes with or without repair.

ConclusionTE interfaced with ultrasound in this hybrid machine presents no learning curve effect. After a short initial training session, a novice observer is able to perform high rates of reliable and very reliable TE measurements.Key Points• When performing liver stiffness measurements using a new hybrid machine composed of transient elastography interfaced with ultrasound, the rate of failures of measurements is very low, below 5%.• After a short training session and using ultrasound planning, a novice operator, whatever its expertise in ultrasound imaging, is capable of performing high rates of reliable and v...

Publication date: Available online 13 October 2019Source: Seminars in Ultrasound, CT and MRIAuthor(s): Angelica Patino Gonzalez, Lucy Modahl, Daniel KowalAbstractImaging plays a central role in the diagnosis of pulmonary infections with the chest radiograph as the initial study of choice. CT can further delineate the extent of disease and present key imaging signs that, along with clinical history and laboratory data, can properly guide the differential diagnosis. In this article, we review and illustrate the most relevant CT imaging manifestations of common and less common pulmonary infections, including a section devoted...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the use of piezosurgery for osteotomy and odontosection in the repair of the alveoli four months after exodontia. Fifteen young patients who needed third molars extracted were included. During the extractions, one of the teeth was included in the Piezo group, in which ultrasound motor tips were used in both procedures. The other tooth was removed with a conventional rotary instrument. The values of density of the repair regions of the right and left third molars were compared using digital panoramic radiographs. There were no significant differences (p > 0.05): piezo...

AbstractCurrently, an increasing number of patients benefit from shoulder prosthesis implantation. Radiologists are therefore more often confronted with imaging examinations involving shoulder arthroplasty, whether during a dedicated examination or incidentally. Standard radiography is the first-line imaging modality in the follow-up of these implants, before the possible use of cross-sectional imaging modalities (computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging), ultrasound, or nuclear medicine examinations. Shoulder arthroplasties are divided into three categories: reverse shoulder arthroplasty, total shoulder arthropl...
