Superiority of Dynamic Needle Tip Positioning for Ultrasound-Guided Peripheral Venous Catheterization in Patients Younger Than 2 Years Old: A Randomized Controlled Trial*
Conclusions: Dynamic needle tip positioning increased the first-attempt and overall success rates of ultrasound-guided peripheral venous catheterization in pediatric patients less than 2 years old.
CONCLUSIONS: there is a significant deficit of gastroenterology departments capable of providing training in digestive ultrasound to residents, causing a significant training inequality. Until this situation can be reversed, the AEED has designed a training project in digestive ultrasound aimed at providing adequate training to all residents in gastroenterology as required.

GoodmanAbstractResearch questionIs T-shaped uterine cavity morphology associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes after transfer of a single thawed euploid blastocyst?DesignIn this secondary analysis of a prospective cohort study, 648 patients with three-dimensional ultrasound (3D-US) data obtained on the day before embryo transfer were categorized into three groups according to uterine cavity morphology: normal (n = 472), intermediate (n = 166) ...
A 41-year-old female patient from Afghanistan was referred to our hospital because of multiple cysts in both liver and kidneys accompanied by recurrent left flank pain and hematuria. Despite inconclusive family history, the patient was suspected of suffering from autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) on the basis of a medical history of adult-onset polycystic kidneys. Abdominal ultrasound revealed multicystic liver and kidneys with many typical cysts, but also an atypical, echogenic, and partially calcified lesion in liver segment VI as well as an atypical, septated, and partially calcified lesion in the spl...
ConclusionAlthough rare, imperforate hymen with retrograde menstruation that causes dilatation of the vagina and uterus (i.e., hematocolpometra) is an important consideration in the differential diagnosis of abdominal pain in premenarchal females with abdominal pain. It is easily diagnosed by physical examination. However, if patient or parents refuse genital exam evaluation, imaging studies can greatly help with diagnosis. Ultrasound will show an echogenic fluid accumulation in the vagina that can extend to uterus.
The objective of this study was to review the outcomes of varicose veins originating from the popliteal fossa at a single center.
Duplex ultrasound examination, computed tomography scans, and magnetic resonance angiography have traditionally been used as noninvasive methods to assess carotid stenosis severity. The degree of stenosis in asymptomatic patients has often been used as the main criterion to assess risk for plaque embolization and stroke. There has been an effort to find alternate methods to assess vulnerable plaques. This has included many modalities, including magnetic resonance imaging and other ultrasound techniques.

DiscussionPCOs measured in studies of mpMRI or MRI-guided biopsy thus far have mostly been physical outcomes, with some evidence that MRI tests are associated with less frequent adverse outcomes compared with transrectal ultrasound biopsy. There was very little evidence for the effect of mpMRI and MRI-guided biopsy on emotional, cognitive, social, or behavioral outcomes.
