Cryoablation is a safe and effective nonsurgical treatment for breast fibroadenomas (FAs). The treatment response is inversely related to the tumor size, with lesions less than 2 cm showing an optimal response. Ultrasound (US) imaging follow-up of the ablated tumor is recommended at 6-month intervals for 2 years at our institution. Although a decrease in the size of the FA clinically and on US imaging is the expected treatment response, variations can be seen. Knowledge of typical US changes over time is imperative to prevent unnecessary rebiopsy or excision in patients who have undergone cryoablation...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to analyze the diagnostic accuracy of different criteria of pharmaco-penile duplex sonography in venous erectile dysfunction (ED). METHODS: The following parameters were measured after an intracavernous injection test in patients with ED from May 2016 to February 2017 at our hospital: diameter, peak systolic velocity, end-diastolic velocity, and resistance index of the cavernous artery; diameter and peak velocity (if leak occurred) of the deep dorsal vein...

OBJECTIVES: Exoanal 4-dimensional translabial ultrasound (TLUS) is increasingly used to image the anal sphincter. The aim of this study was to define the limits of normality for assessment of external and internal anal sphincters with TLUS. METHODS: This study was a retrospective analysis using data sets of nulliparous women seen antenatally. All women had a 4-dimensional TLUS examination at a mean gestational age ± SD of 36 ± 0.7 (range, 32.9-37.3) weeks...

An ultrasound (US) study is often the first imaging approach in patients with abdominal symptoms or signs related to abdominal diseases, and it is often part of the routine workup. The pancreatic gland, despite its retroperitoneal site, can be efficiently examined with US thanks to advances in US technologies. Nowadays, a pancreatic US study could be considered complete if multiparametric, including the use of Doppler imaging, US elastography, and contrast-enhanced imaging for the study of a pancreatic mass...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to investigate the effect of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) on cyclophosphamide (CTX)-induced rabbit myelosuppression. METHODS: Rabbits (n = 90) were randomly divided into a mild myelosuppression group (n = 40), a severe myelosuppression group (n = 40), and a normal control group (group Cu28 ; n = 10). The mild and severe myelosuppression models were established by daily ear vein injection of 15- and 40-mg/kg CTX for 4 continuous days, respectively...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of our study was to investigate the relationship between medial meniscal extrusion (MME) determined by dynamic ultrasound (US) and magnetic resonance imaging findings of medial-type knee osteoarthritis (OA). METHODS: Single knees of 102 patients with knee pain were assessed by radiography, dynamic US, and magnetic resonance imaging. All knee radiographs were interpreted and grouped according to the Kellgren-Lawrence (KL) scale. Medial meniscal extrusion in non-weight-bearing and weight-bearing positions and the difference of these values (ΔMME) were measured by dynamic US...

OBJECTIVES: To compare trunk muscle thickness of women with and without patellofemoral pain (PFP) and to assess the association of trunk muscle thickness with self-reported pain of women with PFP. METHODS: Forty-four women were recruited and divided into 2 groups: a PFP group (n = 22) and a pain-free group (n = 22). The thickness of the following trunk muscles was obtained by B-mode ultrasound imaging: transversus abdominis, obliquus internus (OI), obliquus externus (OE), rectus abdominis, and multifidus...

OBJECTIVES: Retrograde vertebral artery flow, the steal phenomenon, is most frequently caused by a flow-limiting stenosis of the proximal subclavian artery. The reversal of flow can be incomplete, resulting in bidirectional flow: retrograde in systole and antegrade in diastole. Less often, retrograde vertebral artery flow is the consequence of increased subclavian flow, as might occur with a well-functioning dialysis access fistula. Our objective was to evaluate bidirectional vertebral artery flow associated with dialysis access fistulas...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the intra- and inter-rater agreement for myometrial lesions using Morphologic Uterus Sonographic Assessment terminology. METHODS: Thirteen raters with high (n = 6) or medium experience (n = 7) assessed 30 3-dimensional ultrasound clips with (n = 20) and without (n = 10) benign myometrial lesions. Myometrial lesions were reported as poorly or well defined and then systematically evaluated for the presence of individual features...

OBJECTIVES: To test the reproducibility and report the reference ranges of the right diaphragmatic excursion's peak velocities recorded by pulsed wave tissue Doppler imaging in healthy term neonates. METHODS: We formerly assessed intraobserver and interobserver variability of the method for the right hemidiaphragm in a small group of neonates, including ventilated neonates. We did not attempt to test the approach for the left hemidiaphragm because of the recognized high failure rate of visualization...

OBJECTIVES: Cerebral palsy (CP) increases the risk of hip displacement during childhood. Abnormal hip muscle forces have been proposed as the predisposing factors. In CP, the amount of hip displacement is commonly evaluated by the Reimers hip migration index (MI) on an anteroposterior pelvic radiograph. To the best of our knowledge, the association between the elasticity of hip muscles measured by shear wave elastography and the MI has not been studied yet. Herein, we aimed to analyze the correlation between the elasticity of hip muscles and the MI...

The main complication of volar locking plates for distal radius fractures is flexor tendon rupture. The flexor pollicis longus (FPL) is the most commonly ruptured. Repair of the pronator quadratus (PQ) is one of the ways to prevent tendon rupture. The main purpose of this series was to evaluate the role of PQ repair after volar plating to prevent flexor tendon rupture using ultrasound (US). This work was a mono-operator prospective series of 20 consecutive patients with volar locking plates for distal radius fracture between September 2014 and May 2015...

OBJECTIVES: The diagnostic role of an ultrasound (US) and plasma renin activity (PRA) combination is unknown, despite the usefulness of Doppler US as a screening tool for renovascular hypertension (RVHT). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic usefulness of US for RVHT in children stratified according to PRA. METHODS: We identified 336 children who underwent renal Doppler US examinations for hypertension and divided them into a high-renin group (n = 177) and a normal-renin group (n = 159) based on PRA and stratified them by age...

Bloody nipple discharge in infancy and childhood is extremely rare, and mammary duct ectasia is the most common etiology. Ultrasound (US) findings of mammary duct ectasia include dilated ducts and tubular anechoic lesions that may contain echogenic debris in the subareolar region. However, mammary duct ectasia may show variable US findings, which are not well described in the literature. We report 3 cases of mammary duct ectasia in infancy and childhood with variable imaging findings, including complex cystic and solid lesions...

OBJECTIVES: To compare the accuracy of homodyned K quantitative ultrasound (QUS) with that of B-mode and Doppler ultrasound imaging for discriminating between lateral epicondylosis (LE) and asymptomatic elbows. METHODS: This prospective study received Institutional Review Board approval, and participants provided written informed consent. Between February 2015 and March 2017, 30 LE elbows in 27 patients and 24 asymptomatic elbows in 13 volunteers underwent B-mode, Doppler, and radiofrequency ultrasound imaging of the common extensor tendon (CET) and radial collateral ligament (RCL)...

OBJECTIVES: To verify whether elastographically determined remodeling of venous obliterating material formed during sclerotherapy is influenced by patient-specific factors. METHODS: The study included 60 patients who underwent sclerotherapy for venous insufficiency. Elastographic parameters of obliterating material, including relative vascular cross sections (percent) with the highest (red), intermediate (green), and lowest elasticity (blue), determined 7 ± 1, 14 ± 2, and 21 ± 2 days after sclerotherapy, were analyzed against the patients' ages, sexes, physical activity levels, and pain severities...
