AIM: This meta-analysis aimed to assess the precision of Sonazoid contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) to distinguish hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) from focal liver lesions (FLLs). MATERIAL AND METHODS: The Cochrane Library, Embase, PubMed, and Web of Science databases were systematically searched and checked for studies using Sonazoid CEUS to characterize HCC. A comprehensive meta-analysis was conducted, involving data pooling, subgroup analyses, meta-regression, and investigation of publication bias...

AIM: To explore the performance of single or combined ultrasound (US) in diagnosing malignant breast lesions, and then compare the results with a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) aspect. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Patients' demographics, tumor markers, and imaging examination were collected. Diagnostic models based on B-mode, color Doppler ultrasounds (CDU), strain elastography (SE), MRI, B-mode US + CDU, B-mode US + SE, and B-mode US + CDU + SE were developed using logistic regression analysis...

AIM: Prostate cancer (PCa) is one of the most common neoplasms in men. However, the value of ultrasound-based radiomics for diagnosing PCa remains uncertain. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed ultrasonic and clinical data from 373 patients. Patients were divided into two groups according to the pathological results. Radiomics features wereextracted from TRUS, and we screened the optimal features to construct radiomics models. Relationships between clinical characteristics and prostate lesions were identified by univariate and multivariate logistic regression analysis...

The most common complication during esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) under sedation is hypoxemia. There is a scarcity of indicators to predict the risk of hypoxemia during EGD under sedation accurately. The width of the lower tongue base measured by ultrasound (US) is considered to be a significant predictor of the presence and severity of obstructive sleepapnea syndrome (OSAS), which develops hypoxemia by a similar mechanism to EGD under sedation. This study aimed to observe its ability to predict hypoxemia during EGD under sedation...

AIMS: Normalization is a method used to account for body mass in clinical practice and research. It is unclear if this method will improve the correlation between muscle cross-sectional area (CSA) and physical performance. We examined the correlations between quadriceps muscle morphology parameters and physical performance outcomes in older women. Material and methods: Twenty older women participated in this study. Ultrasound imaging was used to measure quadriceps muscle CSA and echo intensity...

AIM: In rheumatoid arthritis (RA), forefoot bursitis is prevalent, with limited studies comparing ultrasonography (US) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). This study aims to evaluate these bursae, providing a comparative analysis of US and MRI, and explore associations with demographic, disease-related factors, pain, clinical examination, and baropodometryin RA patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Participants with RA were recruited from the day-hospital clinic...

We presented the case of a patient with a slowly developing right parotid tumor over the course of several years. Multimodal ultrasonography proved relevant for malignancy. Subsequent imaging identified tumors in numerous organs, considered metastases. Ultrasonography consolidated all identified aspects. Biopsy from an adrenal mass and histological examination evidenced the presence of a malignant, metastatic melanoma with cutaneous origin. Considerations are made regarding the role of ultrasonography in such cases...

The diagnosis or rare, non-hematologic malignant lesions of the liver may be a challenge owing to the rarity of the disease, and is usually made by histological confirmation. Ultrasound with color Doppler and contrast-enhanced, if required, taking into account the clinical background of the patient, may help to focus the differential diagnosis. In this review, we describe the pathological and ultrasound features of rare malignant neuroendocrine and predominantly epithelioid liver lesions including primary neuroendocrine tumor of the liver, Invasive mucinous cystic neoplasm of the liver, and also hepatoblastoma...
