Thelina Amaratunga, Iain Kirkpatrick, Yi Yan, Fern Karlicki
Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by aplasia or hypoplasia of the uterus and vagina due to arrest in the development of the müllerian ducts. Women with this syndrome have the normal 46 XX karyotype, normal female secondary sex characteristics, and primary amenorrhea. Only a few cases have been described in the literature where a fibroid develops from a rudimentary, nonfunctioning uterus in patients with MRKH syndrome. In even rarer instances, a fibroid can develop in patients with a congenitally absent uterus...

PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to compare the performances of second-look digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) and ultrasonography (US) for additional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-detected suspicious lesions in patients referred for breast cancer. METHODS: Fifty-five patients (52.5 [9.3] years) with breast cancers newly diagnosed at a referring hospital underwent MRI and afterward DBT and US in our institution. The frequency for detecting additional MRI-detected suspicious lesions on DBT and US and performances of DBT and US were compared...

BACKGROUND: Fetal weight estimation is one of the most important aspects of antenatal care. The effects of amniotic fluid volume on the accuracy of estimated fetal weight (EFW) depend on the amount of fluid, in particular whether it is polyhydramnios or oligohydramnios. Previous studies have reported conflicting results of the effects of amniotic fluid volume on EFW accuracy. AIM: The aim of the study was to evaluate the effects of isolated oligohydramnios cases and polyhydramnios on the accuracy of EFW...

PURPOSE: Our purpose is to determine the efficacy of ultrasound (US), with the addition of contrast enhancement (CEUS), in the identification and characterization of abdominal pathology compared with nonenhanced computed tomography (CT) scan (NECT). METHODS: This prospective cohort study recruited 197 patients with NECT, the majority with renal failure, to have US, with addition of CEUS, if focal pathology was detected, occurring in 145 patients. Nonenhanced CT scan, US, and CEUS images/video files were presented to 2 blinded readers, in anonymous order...

A 12-year-old girl was referred to our radiology department with a rapidly enlarging mass in the right breast. Fine-needle aspiration cytology was suggestive of fibroadenoma. Total excision of the mass was done, and diagnosis was confirmed by histopathology.

Anorectal malformations are a rare condition difficult to diagnose in the prenatal period. It can be suspected if distal bowel appears dilated in the first-trimester ultrasound or if intraluminal echogenic foci are detected during the second-trimester scan. We report a case with these ultrasound signs (dilated sigmoid at the first trimester and intraluminal echogenic calcifications at the second trimester), in which a vesicorectal fistula image was obtained. This is the first published prenatal image of a vesicorectal fistula...

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. She recently stopped breastfeeding. This case report will review the literature and present the mammographic and sonographic findings including elastography.

Axillary lymph node (ALN) status is an important prognostic factor for overall breast cancer survival. In current clinical practice, ALN status is evaluated before surgery via multimodal imaging and physical examination. Mammography is typically suboptimal for complete ALN evaluation. Currently, ultrasonography is widely used to evaluate ALN status; nonetheless, results may vary according to operator. Ultrasonography is the primary imaging modality for evaluating ALN status. Other imaging modalities including contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, and positron emission tomography/computed tomography can play additional roles in axillary nodal staging...

Postoperative spindle cell nodule (PSCN) is a very rare pathologic complication that can occur in association with a recent core needle biopsy, surgery, or trauma. Cases of PSCN have been reported in the lower genitourinary tract, endometrium, and thyroid but are rare in the breast. Herein, we report an ultrasound-guided biopsy-proven PSCN after ultrasound-guided vacuum-assisted excision in the breast.

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...

James Andrew Spain, Shehbaz Shaikh, Sharon A Sandberg
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.
