Tal Cohen, Richard G Barr
There are multiple factors that affect the shear wave speed in the assessment of liver stiffness. In this case report, we present a case of hemochromatosis that has elevated liver stiffness suggestive of significant fibrosis or cirrhosis; however on liver biopsy, no fibrosis was identified. This article will discuss the possibility that liver iron deposition may affect SWE measurements of the liver, leading to inaccurate assessment of liver fibrosis. In these cases, a liver biopsy may be required for accurate liver assessment...

A 38-week pregnant patient with history of cesarean delivery was admitted to the hospital for induction of labor after diagnosis of fetal demise. When the clinical picture became concerning for uterine scar dehiscence, an ultrasound was ordered. After targeted ultrasound of the lower uterine segment, the sonographer initially reported thin but intact lower uterine segment and normal positioning of the fetus. By keeping a high level of suspicion, the radiologist analyzed the images submitted and found other clues suggesting possible dehiscence or rupture...

Uterine cervical adenofibroma, a very rare benign neoplasm, has rarely been reported in imaging features in the English literature. Herein, we describe a case of uterine cervical adenofibroma that was depicted as a multilocular cystic lesion with enhanced solid portions.

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study is to determine the ability of ultrasound guided needle biopsy of a neck lymph node to provide adequate tissue for complete pathologic evaluation of suspected metastatic lung cancer, including molecular testing for epidermal growth factor receptor gene mutations by pyrosequencing and anaplastic lymphoma kinase gene rearrangement by fluorescence in situ hybridization. METHODS: Institutional review board approval was obtained and the requirement for informed consent was waived...

Hepatic Kaposi sarcoma (KS) is the most commonly seen hepatic neoplasm in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), found in 34% of patients in an autopsy series. However, the incidence of hepatic KS has significantly declined since the advent of highly active antiretroviral therapy and is not as commonly seen on imaging. We present a case of hepatic KS in a patient with AIDS, which was initially mistaken for hepatic abscesses on computed tomography. We discuss the computed tomography, grayscale ultrasound, and contrast-enhanced ultrasound appearance of hepatic KS and how to distinguish this hepatic neoplasm from other common hepatic lesions seen in patients with AIDS...

Reliable and reproducible tumor measurement is fundamental in the oncologic decision making. In this article, we first highlight the importance of a precise tumor measurement, reviewing the correct modality of measuring tumor lesions at ultrasound. Then we analyze the measurement discrepancies between ultrasound and pathology as well as the discrepancies reported between ultrasound and other imaging modalities. Thereafter, basing on the existent literature and on our experience, we discuss the factors influencing the tumor size measurements at ultrasound...

To determine the conus distance between the end of the conus medullaris and the distal end of the last vertebral body in healthy fetuses with various gestational ages using ultrasonography for its diagnostic value in tethered cord syndrome (TCS). This retrospective study included 540 healthy and 8 autopsy-confirmed TCS fetuses. Ultrasonographic measurement of the conus distance was performed when the fetus was in a prone position within the spine in the near field at 14 to 41 weeks of gestational age. Linear correlation analysis was performed to analyze the relationship between the conus distance and the gestational age, biparietal diameter, femur length, head circumference, and abdominal circumference...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate the ultrasonographic features for differentiation of follicular thyroid lesions. METHODS: Ultrasonographic features of surgically confirmed 56 follicular adenoma (FA), 22 follicular carcinoma (FC), and 100 nodular hyperplasia (NH) were evaluated using univariable and multivariable multinomial logistic regression analyses, receiver operating characteristic analyses, and areas under the curve. RESULTS: Tumor diameter, margin, echotexture, cystic changes, calcification, hypoechoic rim, and vascularity were significant on univariable analysis...
