Objective The FUSION-X-US-II prototype was developed to combine 3D automated breast ultrasound (ABUS) and digital breast tomosynthesis in a single device. We evaluated the performance of ABUS and tomosynthesis in a single examination in a clinical…

Purpose: To prospectively evaluate the performance of real-time ultrasonographic (US) shear-wave elastography (SWE) in the diagnosis of peripheral zone prostate cancer in patients with high and/or increasing prostate-specific antigen levels and/or…

Objective. Both sonography and scintigraphy have been used to evaluate gallbladder function with the use of sincalide (cholecystokinin [CCK]). However, the reported ejection fractions (EFs) for the two modalities are not the same. The techniques…

With the recent FDA approval for characterization of focal liver lesions (FLL) in both pediatric and adult patients using Lumason (sulfur hexafluoride microbubbles), increased use of ultrasound contrast for routine clinical use is expected. This…

To determine the feasibility of a prototype device combining 3D-automated breast ultrasound (ABVS) and digital breast tomosynthesis in a single device to detect and characterize breast lesions. In this prospective feasibility study, the FUSION-X-US…

Objective. There is a paucity of evidence demonstrating that emergency department (ED) ultrasound changes clinical practice in trauma patients. We hypothesized that the presence of ultrasound would affect clinical decision making as evidenced through…

We present a case of intrauterine infection with parvovirus B-19 and accompanying severe nonimmune hydrops at 26 weeks' gestation. The fetus showed progressive recovery on ultrasound. A term infant was delivered with hepatosplenomegaly as the only…

OBJECTIVES: Elastography of the breast is a new technique for characterization of breast lesions. The reproducibility of elastographic techniques has been questioned. Precompression is known to effect elastographic results. This study determined the…

A previously healthy 21-year-old man presented with back pain, bilateral extremity pain, and right lower extremity weakness, paresthesias, and swelling. Sonographic examination revealed diffuse deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in the femoral and popliteal…

PURPOSE: To determine whether addition of quality measure (QM) of shear-wave (SW) velocity (Vs) estimation can increase SW elastography sensitivity for breast cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: With written informed consent, this institutional review…

Minimizing margin re-excision optimizes patient care by providing appropriate oncologic resection and reducing costs. This study aims to assess margin positivity rate in two groups: shave margin based on gross specimen (control group, CG) vs shave…

The incidence of metastases to the breast from nonbreast carcinoma is less than 1% of all breast cancers; of these, adenocarcinoma of the lung to breast is a small proportion (\textless0.1% of breast carcinomas). The imaging findings of a case of…

PURPOSE: To determine the sensitivity and specificity of a real-time elasticity imaging (EI) ultrasound (US) system in the characterization of breast lesions as benign or malignant. METHODS: A total of 208 patients with 251 lesions were scheduled to…

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate blindly breast ultrasound images corrected for the speed of sound in breast tissue compared with conventional images. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this study, 409 images from 153 patients were obtained…

Contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) is an imaging modality that shows promise in the detection and characterization of renal masses, as well as treatment through CEUS-guided percutaneous radiofrequency ablation. These techniques may be…

PURPOSE: The aims of this study were to evaluate if a dynamic automatic image optimization technique decreases examination time and number of keystrokes while maintaining or improving image quality and to determine if these variables vary with…

To determine if a significant contralateral stenosis affects interpretation tables of the ipsilateral internal carotid artery's degree of stenosis in duplex Doppler ultrasound, the records of 307 patients with carotid duplex ultrasound studies with…

Primary angiosarcoma of the breast is a rare entity. In this case report, we present a case of primary angiosarcoma of the breast in a young woman who presents with her entire right breast enlarged without skin coloration change or signs of mastitis.…

Breast lymphomas only account for approximately 0.15% of malignant breast carcinomas. Half of these are primary lymphomas, and the other half are metastatic to the breast. Ultrasound elastography has been proven to aid in the diagnosis of breast…

We present a multiseptated mesenchymal hamartoma of the liver in a 10-year-old male patient, a rare benign tumor of childhood. The characteristic ultrasound and CT appearances of this unusual tumor are reviewed. A single septal calcification…

Distinguishing malignant versus benign lymphadenopathies is a major diagnostic dilemma in clinical medicine. Metastatic deposits in normal-sized lymph nodes (LNs) can be smaller than a millimeter, thus presenting a diagnostic challenge. In most…

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether ultrasonography is helpful in predicting malignancy in patients with a thyroid nodule and atypia/follicular lesion of undetermined significance (AFLUS). METHODS: All patients with a…

Littoral cell angioma (LCA) is an extremely rare primary splenic tumor. There are few MRI and scintigraphic characteristics described. These characteristics may be most helpful in differentiating LCA from other primary vascular tumors. We present a…
