Hepatic cirrhosis is a potential severe complication of chronic heart failure and has major implications on treatment options. In general, patients with cirrhosis are considered ineligible for isolated cardiac transplantation. Therefore, proper diagnosis of cirrhosis is paramount. The aim of this retrospective study is to explore the diagnostic value of abdominal ultrasound, hepatosplenic scan and abdominal computed tomography scan (CT scan) for liver disease secondary to advanced heart failure.

Recent research has revealed that nanobubbles (NBs) can be an effective tool for gene transfection in conjunction with therapeutic ultrasound (US). However, an approach to apply commercially available hand-held diagnostic US scanners for this purpose has not been evaluated as of now. In the present study, we first compared in vitro, the efficiency of gene transfer (pCMV-Luciferase) with lipid-based and albumin-based NBs irradiated by therapeutic US (1MHz, 5.0 W/cm2) in oral squamous carcinoma cell line HSC-2. Secondly, we similarly examined if gene transfer in mice is possible using a clinical hand-held US scanner (2.3MHz,...

SummaryTumour thrombus is a complication that occurs when a malignancy invades into the vasculature, occluding its lumen. Here, we present a rare case of melanoma tumour thrombus of the great saphenous vein of the left thigh, which was diagnosed on18F ‐fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography and ultrasound‐guided biopsy, and responded well to immunotherapy with pembrolizumab.

CONCLUSIONS: Positional change affects the prostate translocation, however, the effect on prostate distortion appears to be negligible. Prostate translocation in latero-lateral direction can be minimized with larger bladder volumes. Thereby, prostate translocation needs to be considered alongside software misregistration error; however, positional change should not affect software registration of MRI/US fusion-guided prostate biopsy.

Purpose of review Giant cell arteritis (GCA) has classically been diagnosed by temporal artery biopsy and treated with high-dose, long-term glucocorticoid therapy. Noninvasive imaging increasingly is employed for diagnostic purposes, but further studies are needed to determine the role of imaging in monitoring longitudinal disease activity. Glucocorticoid-sparing therapy mitigates the numerous adverse effects of glucocorticoids. This review addresses new developments in these areas. Recent findings For diagnosis, when performed at a center with expertise in its use, temporal artery ultrasound has an estimated sensitiv...

The purpose of this study is to state the reliability of neonatal hip ultrasound interpretation, defining the intra and interoperator variability in the evaluation of the scans. We considered a sample of 2071 scans (coming from 798 patients who attended the screening programme for hip dysplasia), which were interpreted by the operator who obtained and read the images at the screening time and then by a different operator who saw the images for the first time. Both the intra and interoperator variability of α and β angles’ values resulted statistically not significative (intraclass correlation coefficient&g...
