Heart failure (HF) is the most common cause of transudative pleural effusion and the second most common cause of pleural effusion overall 1-3. The incidence of pleural effusion in acute HF is estimated at 46% based on the plain radiographic diagnosis. Its incidence may reach as high as 85-90% when using a more sensitive diagnostic modality such as ultrasound or computerized tomography scan 1,4. Thoracentesis (THR) is widely utilized to improve symptoms of patients with HF 5. However, the actual prognostic value of THR in HF has been sparsely reported with only one study reporting a 22% mortality rate at 30-days and 53% at ...

Purpose of review Several imaging modalities exist for the assessment of Peyronie's disease. However, comprehensive recommendations for using these objective modalities based on large-scale evidence-based studies do not yet exist. Our objective is to evaluate current imaging techniques and provide a model that we follow in our clinic in the workup and management of Peyronie's disease. Recent findings Computed tomography and radiography excellently visualize penile plaque calcifications, and MRI adeptly identifies plaques in complex locations, such as the corporal septum. Ultrasonography has extensive applications in p...

‚ÄčThe wrist is not commonly aspirated in the emergency department, but emergent arthrocentesis may be indicated for extreme or concerning cases, and tapping the wrist to determine the underlying pathology or relieve pain may be of great value. The synovial fluid from the joint space can be analyzed for crystals, infection, and blood. This information may help determine the overall plan and aid in decision-making and consultation. The ultimate treatment plan may include admission, intravenous antibiotics, multiple aspirations, and even surgical washout.A swollen, painful wrist that is hot to the touch is concerning for sep...

Conclusions Our study found a complete agreement assessing the quality of intraoperative reduction of supracondylar fractures by radiographs and ultrasonography. These results confirm that ultrasound imaging is suitable for demonstrating secondary displacements of supracondylar fractures in children. We postulate that in Gartland types II and III fractures treated by Blount procedure, a negative ultrasound result at day 8 follow-up may reduce the need for further radiographs. However, in any doubtful situation, the need for conventional radiographs remains. Level of Evidence Diagnostic study, level II.

ConclusionUltrasound is a reliable method for detection of CVC positioning. Even so, with the four-chamber cardiac view, this method is unable to identify catheters inside heart chambers, therefore, needing to confirm the positioning with CR.

Purpose of review Musculoskeletal ultrasonography (MSUS) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) play important roles in diagnosis, monitoring, and prognostication of rheumatoid arthritis. This review highlights recent literature in this field and aims to provide insight into the future use in clinical practice. Recent findings Recent studies concerning the use of MSUS and MRI in clinical practice show how MSUS and MRI can improve diagnosis and monitoring of rheumatoid arthritis and how they can predict both radiographic progression and clinical outcome (e.g., successful tapering of medical treatment). Moreover, novel te...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis review discusses imaging modalities for fracture repair assessment, with an emphasis on pragmatic clinical and translational use, best practices for implementation, and challenges and opportunities for continuing research.Recent FindingsSemiquantitative radiographic union scoring remains the clinical gold standard, but has questionable reliability as a surrogate indicator of structural bone healing, particularly in early-stage, complex, or compromised healing scenarios. Alternatively, computed tomography (CT) scanning enables quantitative assessment of callus morphometry and mechanics through ...

ConclusionsWe demonstrate that an appropriate and limited training allows pediatric emergency physicians to correctly identify foreign body in the esophagus or stomach. Point-of-care ultrasound in foreign body ingestion in the Emergency Department may allow to prioritize the escalation of care in children and it can contribute to reduce the time to endoscopic management when needed.

Conclusions: The first interstitial and surface HDR brachytherapy for cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma of a finger interspace for hand function preservation is presented. The initial experience revealed that brachytherapy was tolerated but with notable acute and late side effects. Treatment did result in tumor shrinkage with organ preservation and function of two rays. A larger cohort of patients will be required for additional conclusions related to long-term clinical benefits in patients who refuse ray amputation. PMID: 32190070 [PubMed]
