Cell-Free DNA Testing IDs Trisomy 21 in Twin Pregnancies

FRIDAY, June 7, 2019 -- Performance of cell-free DNA (cfDNA) testing for trisomy 21 in twin pregnancies is similar to that reported in singleton pregnancies, according to research published online June 4 in Ultrasound in Obstetrics&...

Conclusion: The presented method does not require a learning stage and enables a duty cycle close to 100%, higher average acoustic intensity and avoidance of side lobe effects versus performing HIFU beam steering to compensate tissue motion. Significance: To our knowledge, the proposed method provides the first experimental validation of the self-scanning HIFU ablation paradigm via a real-time hybrid MRI/US imaging, opening the path toward self-scanning in vivo therapies.

CONCLUSION: A multifacility protocol using intraoperative ultrasonography to visualize hydrogel clips was implemented, which decreased WL procedures and produced no significant difference in margin positivity between the WL and non-WL groups. This technique can be a cost-effective alternative to WL in patients who are candidates for hydrogel clip placement. PMID: 31314730 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract Fascioliasis is a food-borne anthropozoonotic disease caused by Fasciola hepatica that affects multiple hosts, including humans. We herein report the first case of human fascioliasis in the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil. A 57-year-old female patient complaining of abdominal pain was admitted to the hospital for a clinical investigation. The diagnosis of F. hepatica was confirmed by ultrasound and indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Authorities of the Northern coast of Santa Catarina were notified to investigate other cases and risk factors for contamination. The disease is also prevalent in cattle, which...
