ConclusionTransgluteal ultrasonography can be used as an excellent modality to examine the position of the femoral head in relation to the posterior rim of the acetabulum in spica cast. The position of the femoral head can be viewed properly needless of perineal opening in the cast. Thus, transgluteal ultrasonography can replace the CT scan to assess the position of the femoral head. Sonography does not expose patients to radiation and does not require sedation.

In recent years, work has been done to understand the mechanisms of Doppler ultrasound twinkling artifacts (TAs) and why they appear over kidney stones. In the work described here, twinkling artifacts were evaluated as a possible method of locating and characterizing kidney stones. Doppler ultrasound scanning was used to evaluate 47 stones of different types and sizes in the range 1.31 –55.76 mm2 in cross-sectional area (average = 9.65 mm2). An isolated stone study was used to understand the behavior of the TAs.

Purpose To examine the validity of ultrasound (via cloud-based software that measures pixilation intensity according to a scale of 0–100) to noninvasively assess muscle glycogen in human skeletal muscle. Methods In study 1, 14 professional male rugby league players competed in an 80-min competitive rugby league game. In study 2 (in a randomized repeated measures design), 16 recreationally active males completed an exhaustive cycling protocol to deplete muscle glycogen followed by 36 h of HIGH or LOW carbohydrate intake (8 g·kg−1 vs 3 g·kg−1 body mass). In both studies, muscle biopsies a...
