In this study we report on a 15-week male fetus, diagnosed with hyperechogenic lungs, midline heart position and inverted diaphragm. Sonographic findings suggest congenital High Airway Obstruction Syndrome (CHAOS) An ultrasound scan and fetal MRI were not able to point out the exact obstruction level. In spite of extensive counselling, the parents opted to carry on with the pregnancy. Fetal demise was noted on a scan at 19 weeks gestation. After the elective termination of pregnancy, a post-mortem examination showed partial tracheal atresia with no other anomalies. Despite technological progress in CHAOS syndrome, a precis...

J Clin Med. 2021 Nov 19;10(22):5394. doi: 10.3390/jcm10225394.ABSTRACTMolecular profile of breast cancer provides information about its biological activity, prognosis and treatment strategies. The purpose of our study was to investigate the correlation between ultrasound features and molecular subtypes of breast cancer. From June 2019 to December 2019, 86 patients (median age 57 years; range 32-88) with 102 breast cancer tumors were included in the study. The molecular subtypes were classified into five types: luminal A (LA), luminal B without HER2 overexpression (LB HER2-), luminal B with HER2 overexpression (LB HER2+), h...

ConclusionUltrasound-guided 14g core biopsy established a malignant diagnosis in 91% of invasive cancers and in 48% of DCIS/pLCIS cases. This relatively non-invasive, technically easy to perform and low-cost biopsy procedure can be used immediately when targeted ultrasound shows a correlate for a suspicious MRI scan finding. Careful imaging-pathologic correlation is required after 14g biopsy, and a discordant result will usually prompt recourse to an MRI-guided VAB or hook-wire localisation.

Positron emission tomography (PET) offers an incredible wealth of diverse research applications in vascular disease, providing a depth of molecular, functional, structural, and spatial information. Despite this, vascular PET imaging has not yet assumed the same clinical use as vascular ultrasound, CT, and MR imaging which provides information about late-onset, structural tissue changes. The current clinical utility of PET relies heavily on visual inspection and suboptimal parameters such as SUVmax; emerging applications have begun to harness the tool of whole-body PET to better understand the disease. Even still, without a...

We report a case of a 74-year-old man with inferior epigastric artery (IEA) pseudoaneurysm secondary to an 8-mm port placement during a robot-assisted laparoscopic radical cystectomy with ureteroileocutaneostomy. The pseudoaneurysm was initially diagnosed by contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS); subsequently, a computed tomography (CT) scan and an angiography test were performed. The pseudoaneurysm was then treated successfully with embolization of the inferior epigastric artery. Awareness of this rare complication is of clinical importance to avoid excessive morbidity of affected individuals.

AbstractBackgroundExtended focused abdominal sonography for trauma (e-FAST) is part of the primary survey in patients with high-energy trauma. However, it does not identify patients with retroperitoneal haemorrhage associated with significant pelvic trauma. A traumatic diastasis of pubic symphysis, as well as an ‘open book’ (OB) pelvic injury, is a diagnostic clue to recognize unstable pelvis with higher risk of bleeding. FAST–PLUS (FAST–PL pleural –US ultrasound of symphysis) protocol is an addendum to the e-FAST, which takes into account the study of the pubic symphysis in a single tran...

We report a patient who developed specific lesions of sarcoidosis infiltrating some xanthelasmata 6 months after starting treatment with atezolizumab. A 69-year-old woman was referred to the dermatology department for infiltration of xanthelasmata. The patient was being treated with atezolizumab for metastatic uterine carcinosarcoma. Cutaneous biopsy from an infiltrated xanthelasma and from still yellow, no infiltrated xanthelasma showed differing proportions of foamy histiocytes and sarcoid granulomas. On physical examination, erythemato-marronaceous papules clustered on both knees, and not previously detected by the pati...

Int Angiol. 2021 Nov 26. doi: 10.23736/S0392-9590.21.04771-4. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: The death due to stroke is caused by embolism of the arteries which is due to the rupture of the atherosclerotic lesions in carotid arteries. The lesion formation is over time, and thus, early screening is recommended for asymptomatic and moderate-risk patients. The previous techniques adopted conventional methods or semi-automated and, more recently, machine learning solutions. A handful of studies have emerged based on solo deep learning (SDL) models such as UNet architecture.METHODS: The proposed research is the first...
