Conclusion: If the thyroid nodule is detected with flouro-2-deoxy-D-glucose uptake, to differentiate benign nodule from malignant, cytological examination is noteworthy to diagnose the more aggressive type of thyroid nodule and also thyroid metastasis from primary cancer.

CONCLUSION: Metastases and lymphoma of the gallbladder are rare. Traditional imaging methods prior to cholecystectomy may miss gallbladder malignancies. A liberal approach of histopathological analysis of the gallbladder should be applied. PMID: 31035806 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion The most common benign salivary tumour in our study was Warthin’s tumour and the majority of these patients had a primary lung carcinoma. Given that the main predisposing factor for both pathologies is smoking, potentially this suggests an association between the incidence of primary lung carcinoma and Warthin’s tumour. Ten (14%) patients in our study had a standardized uptake value of below 3.2 (using the VUE Point HD algorithm). These patients had either no identifiable lesion on ultrasound or no malignant features on histology; therefore, we propose that a cut-off of 3.2 on PET/CT could be used ...

In the seven years since the original Wheat Belly book hit bookstores and turned the nutritional world topsy-turvy and millions of people have engaged in a grain-free lifestyle, many unique lessons have been learned. Even though I had engaged the practices of this lifestyle for a number of years and in thousands of people before I broadcast these ideas through books, expanding the audience to many more people yielded feedback on an enormous scale, new lessons that even surprised me. Among the new lessons learned along the way: Plantar fasciitis—I did not expect to have so many people report that this painful conditi...

CONCLUSIONS: Whole-body PET/CT and abdominal ultrasound complement each other in the staging of uveal melanoma. Benign hepatic abnormalities found using ultrasound is common. Of importance, a second asymptomatic primary malignancy associated with uveal melanoma was detected almost one in 10 patients.

That statement from a recent patient was a summary to me of what is bad in our health care “system.”  It’s a terrible summary of what is seen all over this country with people who must make the choice between financial solvency and health. Here’s what happened:  It was a new patient I saw, who is a veteran who owns two businesses.  He went out on his own when he “kept getting laid off.”  He has largely been successful in what he’s doing, but as is the case with many these days, he couldn’t afford health insurance.  This was especially bad because he h...

CONCLUSION: Most thyroid hypermetabolic incidentalomas are benign lesions, while higher values of SUV max are in favor of malignancy. This mandates further evaluation of incidentally found thyroid hypermetabolic lesions on routine PET/CT scans. PMID: 28913004 [PubMed]

BY LOUISE VESANEN, MSC, &AHMED RAZZIUDIN, MD​​A 53-year-old woman was brought to the ED from a nursing home for hypotension and hypoxia. She appeared septic. Her blood pressure was 80/60 mm Hg, and she was pale, cyanotic, and jaundiced. The patient was nonverbal at baseline due to underlying cerebral palsy, so information about her present illness was provided by her nursing home. Recent records listed elevated alkaline phosphatase and gallstone finding on ultrasound. Physical exam demonstrated abdominal distension and tenderness on palpation of her right upper quadrant.​Initial workup included CBC, CMP, blood gl...

We report the case of a 53-year-old female patient who was transplanted with the liver of a 71-year-old male donor for advanced primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) and who additionally was diagnosed with a histologically non-classifiable colitis shortly before transplantation. Upon follow-up abdominal ultrasound 4 months after transplantation, a liver lesion measuring 16 × 23 mm was detected in the transplanted liver. This lesion had not been noticed immediately after transplantation and showed a pattern suspicious for malignancy in contrast-enhanced ultrasound. In line, a biopsy revealed the presence of a met...

Publication date: Available online 17 August 2016 Source:Seminars in Ultrasound, CT and MRI Author(s): Ali Devrim Karaosmanoglu, Mehmet Ruhi Onur, Mustafa Ozmen, Deniz Akata, Musturay Karcaaltincaba Liver magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is becoming the gold standard in liver metastasis detection and treatment response assessment. The most sensitive MR sequences are diffusion weighted images and hepatobiliary phase images after Gd-EOB-DTPA. Peripheral ring enhancement, diffusion restriction and hypointensity on hepatobiliary phase images are hallmarks of liver metastases. In patients with normal ultrasonography (US), comp...
