AIM: This study aimed to examine the feasibility and potential benefits of an optical see-through head-mounted display (OST-HMD) during real-time ultrasound-guided thoracentesis simulations. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Six physicians performed a thoracentesis simulation using an OST-HMD and a wireless image transmission system. The time required, puncture needle visibility, pleural fluid collection success rate, and head movement during the procedure using a smart glass equipped with an inertial measurement unit were all recorded and compared with and without the HMD...

AIM: Abnormal uterine vascular pattern can be observed during transvaginal ultrasound examination used for investigating post-abortion bleeding and secondary postpartum hemorrhage. The purpose of this series of cases was to evaluate almost all the rare causes of uterine vascular abnormalities linked to pregnancy complications, and determine how to arrive at the diagnosis to optimize patient management, which is crucial for preventing life-threatening massive vaginal bleeding. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective observational case series study including 20 women with postpartum or post-abortion vaginal bleeding who were found to have an abnormal uterine vascular pattern during a transvaginal color duplex assessment...

Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) is a rare, heterogeneous, highly lethal tumor of the biliary tract. Due to the lack of effective treatments, an early identification of ICC is essential to achieve the best outcome in terms of therapy and prognosis aiming for a curative intent. ICC may arise on a normal liver or with an underlying liver disease, making the diagnosis more difficult and complex. Contrast-enhancement ultrasound (CEUS) is an accurate procedure able to detect ICC-specific contrast vascular pattern, and thus facilitating the correlation between radiological and histopathological findings with high specificity and sensitivity...

AIM OF THE STUDY: Spontaneous splenic rupture is a serious complication of pathologically altered spleen tissue, associated with a high mortality rate. CASE DESCRIPTION: We describe a spontaneous splenic rupture in a patient with acute lymphoblastic leukemia undergoing chemotherapy. Ultrasound revealed splenomegaly, and diffuse splenic acute lymphoblastic leukemia-infiltration was suspected. In addition, only color Doppler sonography and contrast-enhanced ultrasound diagnosed splenic vascular ectasias with a venous-flow-profile...

Hydrocele of the canal of Nuck is a rare condition which is commonly misdiagnosed as an inguinal hernia due to the unfamiliarity of clinicians with this pathology. There are three different types of hydrocele of the canal of Nuck, with type 1 being the most common, typically presenting as a unilocular cystic lesion with no communication with the peritoneal cavity. We present a case of a two-month-old female patient with an enlarging inguinal swelling raising the suspicion for an inguinal hernia or lymphadenopathy, with sonographic imaging revealing a fluid collection in the canal of Nuck, suggestive of a hydrocele...

AIM: Ultrasound elastography is a simple non-invasive method for measuring tissue elasticity in relation to tissue fibrosis. The aim of this study was to compare echogenicity, volume and shear wave velocities of undescended vs normally descended testes. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Sixty-six boys with undescended testes were included in this study. The median age range was 35.5 (10-118) months old. The cases included in this prospective study consisted of 66 patients with non-operated undescended testes, with 51 of them being affected unilaterally and 15 affected bilaterally, as diagnosed by physical examination...

An intricate and unique combination of ligamentous, fibrocartilaginous, and osseous structures stabilize the thumb metacarpophalangeal joint. Both ultrasound and high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging are extremely useful in evaluating these critical structures. This article reviews common injuries of the thumb metacarpophalangeal joint, while highlighting the merits, limitations, and pitfalls of the two imaging modalities. A clear appreciation of each method, paired with anatomic knowledge, will lend greater confidence and accuracy to diagnosing impactful injuries and guiding intervention...

Upper extremity entrapment neuropathies are common conditions in which peripheral nerves are prone to injury at specific anatomical locations, particularly superficial regions or within fibro-osseous tunnels, resulting in pain and potential disability. Although neuropathy is primarily diagnosed clinically by physical examination and electrophysiology, imaging evaluation with ultrasound and magnetic resonance neurography are valuable complementary non-invasive and accurate tools for evaluation and can help define the site and cause of nerve dysfunction which ultimately leads to precise and timely treatment...

Radiography is the appropriate initial imaging modality to assess for midfoot and forefoot pathology before turning to advanced imaging techniques. While most lesions of the mid- and forefoot can be diagnosed clinically, the exact nature and severity of the pathology is often unclear. This review addresses the use of the ultrasound, as well as the added value of magnetic resonance imaging, in diagnosing conditions of the midfoot and forefoot. Ultrasound allows a dynamic assessment as well as enabling imaging-guided interventions for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes...

During the past four decades, musculoskeletal ultrasound has become popular as an imaging modality due to its low cost, accessibility, and lack of ionizing radiation. The development of ultrasound technology was possible in large part due to concomitant advances in both solid-state electronics and signal processing. The invention of the transistor and digital computer in the late 1940s was integral in its development. Moore's prediction that the number of microprocessors on a chip would grow exponentially, resulting in progressive miniaturization in chip design and therefore increased computational power, added to these capabilities...

Soft tissue and osseous musculoskeletal infections are common but can be difficult to diagnose clinically. Signs, symptoms, and physical examination findings may be nonspecific, and laboratory values can be inconclusive. The extent of disease may also be underestimated on physical examination. Soft tissue infections most commonly occur secondary to direct inoculation from broken skin and less frequently due to the seeding of the soft tissues from hematogenous spread, while osseous infections are more commonly due to hematogenous seeding...

This paper reviews ultrasound of the hip, which is a commonly requested examination for symptomatic hip issues. This includes both intra-articular and extra-articular causes of hip pain. Ultrasound is easily accessible, lacks radiation exposure, and allows for evaluation of the contralateral hip as well as assessment of dynamic maneuvers. Ultrasound can be used to guide interventional procedures. Ultrasound of the hip can be challenging due to the deep location of structures and complex anatomy. Typically, high-frequency transducers are used to examine the hip, however the choice of ultrasound transducer depends on the patient's body habitus, with lower frequency transducers required to penetrate deep structures in obese patients...
