AbstractPurposeTo compare automated breast volumetric scanning (ABVS) with hand-held bilateral whole breast ultrasound (HHUS) prospectively in regards to patient workflow, woman preference, efficacy in lesion detection, and characterization.Materials and methodsSupplemental screening was performed with both ABVS and HHUS to 345 women with dense breasts and negative mammograms. Acquisition and evaluation times were recorded. Lesions were classified according to BIRADS US criteria and compared one to one. Women were recalled for a secondary HHUS examination if ABVS showed any additional lesions. Findings were compared based ...

Low back pain is one of most common musculoskeletal disorders around the world. One major problem clinicians face is the lack of objective assessment modalities. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are commonly utilized but are unable to clearly distinguish patients with low back pain from healthy patients with respect to abnormalities. The reason may be the anisotropic nature of muscles, which is altered in function, and the scans provide only structural assessment. In view of this, ultrasound may be helpful in understanding the disease as it is performed in real-time and comprises different modes that meas...

A 55-year-old woman presented with intermittent fatigue and abdominal pain. Ultrasound and CT scan showed a large heterogeneous mass in the retroperitoneum, suggestive of malignancy. 18F-FDG PET/CT was performed for staging. PET/CT images showed a hypermetabolic retroperitoneal mass. Endoscopy revealed a mass infiltrating the duodenum. Eventually, the mass was pathologically proved to be malignant melanoma. Further extensive clinical, radiological, and endoscopic investigations proved the retroperitoneum to be the primary site.

Conclusions: Risk profiles for recurring and severe UTIs were catheter-assisted voiding, cervical or thoracic levels and more complete neurological lesions and the co-existence of other SCI-related complications. There is a need for an increased understanding of the special symptoms of UTI in this patient group and a strategy to avoid unspecific antibiotic treatment.

When most people think about E coli, the first thing that comes to mind likely is eating tainted food or as a result of improper handwashing. What came as a surprise to me was that it can also show up as a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) caused by kidney stones that back up in the urethra, which prohibits the flow of urine. It is more than an academic exercise that had me researching this all too common condition in men and women. As I am writing, I am less than 24 hours post-surgery to remove these pesky critters that have been backing up the works since 2014. It was my fourth go around that culminated in a cystoscopy,...

Sandeep Diwan, Abhijit NairSaudi Journal of Anaesthesia 2020 14(2):224-227 Sternal fractures are high velocity injuries which is associated with thoracic or lumbar vertebral fractures. Severe pain associated with sternal fractures can lead to impaired ventilation, low partial pressure of arterial oxygen, need of non-invasive or invasive ventilation with an endotracheal tube thereby leading to significant morbidity. In a series of three patients with manubrium sternal dislocation, we administered continuous bilateral parasternal blocks and initiated infusion of local anesthetics for different periods of time in all patient...

Authors: Choi WJ, Ha YR, Oh JH, Cho YS, Lee WW, Sohn YD, Cho GC, Koh CY, Do HH, Jeong WJ, Ryoo SM, Kwon JH, Kim HM, Kim SJ, Park CY, Lee JH, Lee JH, Lee DH, Park SY, Kang BS Abstract Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is a useful tool that is widely used in the emergency and intensive care areas. In Korea, insurance coverage of ultrasound examination has been gradually expanding in accordance with measures to enhance Korean National Insurance Coverage since 2017 to 2021, and which will continue until 2021. Full coverage of health insurance for POCUS in the emergency and critical care areas was implemented in July 201...

We present a case report of an adult woman with AKL-positive ALCL, diagnosed by endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspirate (EBUS-TBNA).A 59-year-old women with no history of breast implants, was admitted for a four-month low back pain. Initially, the patient was treated for a spondyloarthropathy, but due to persistence of the symptoms, a lumbosacral MRI was performed, showing changes in morphology and signal intensity in the vertebral body of L3, along with edema and a paravertebral collection that affected the left psoas muscle, suggesting granulomatous spondylodiscitis. Chest CT-scan showed mild left ...

ConclusionMesenteric cysts represent a rare cause of intra-abdominal mass. Owing to low prevalence, literature is limited as is guidance on management. Careful pre-operative planning is essential so as to avoid operative complications. Imaging such as USS is of great importance; however Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) may be of more benefit, owing to the complex anatomical relations within which mesenteric cysts can present. Surgical excision is widely reported as the surgical treatment of choice for symptomatic cysts.
