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.

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...

AbstractDisorders affecting the ulnar nerve in the elbow are common in clinical practice. The diagnosis is based on clinical evaluation and electrodiagnostic tests, but imaging examinations are frequently necessary, particularly for the identification of the structures associated with nerve compression. The purpose of this video article is to review the anatomy, the pathology, scanning techniques, and sonographic appearance of the ulnar nerve in the elbow.

CONCLUSION: CEUS demonstrated good sensitivity in detecting breast cancer, and the combined use with MRI can optimize the diagnostic specificity and accuracy in breast cancer prediction. ADVANCES IN KNOWLEDGE: Few studies have compared the diagnostic efficacy of CEUS and MRI, and this study is the first attempt to seek out the diagnostic values for breast lesions of variable sizes (lesions with ≤20 mm and>20 mm).

ConclusionIn spite of advancement of Orbscan 3, still there are wide agreement limits between CCT measurements obtained via Orbscan 3, Pentacam HR and ultrasound pachymetry; thus, interchangeable use in clinical practice is not recommended.
