The prostate and bladder are the most common primary cancer sites for penile metastases. Here, we describe an unusual case of metastases from renal cell carcinoma to the penis discovered 1 month after nephrectomy in a 60-year-old man. The diagnosis was achieved using B-mode and contrast-enhanced ultrasound.

INTRODUCTION: Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is still a common and important disorder of childhood, with a prevalence of 0.1 to 2/1000 children. Using ultrasonography (US) in screening of DDH reduces the rates of open reductions and complications. In the current study, we aim to detect the optimal time for US examination for detecting DDH to prevent unnecessary repeating US examinations and treatments. METHODS: Children referred to US examination for a healthy child screening program, according to the health policy of our country, are included in the current prospective study...

Musculoskeletal injuries have been and remain a significant issue for sonographers. Despite its importance, the topic of musculoskeletal injury in sonographers has received little attention in the radiology literature. Our goal is to bring this extremely important issue to the forefront, with the hope of initiating conversations and actions leading to improved workplace practices for sonographers.

Our purpose was to assess the endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) features of serous cystic neoplasms (SCNs) of the pancreas in determining the surgical removal compared with computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features. For 33 consecutive patients with 34 surgically confirmed SCNs over the past 11 years, preoperative EUS features were compared with those of CT and MRI (CT&MRI). Besides the lesion size and location, a retrospective analysis of the various imaging features was performed by 2 observers to understand the characteristics that determine the need for surgical intervention in terms of multiplicity of locules, calcification, mural thickening, mural nodules, ductal communication, and main pancreatic duct dilatation in addition to the gross morphologic type: microcystic, macrocystic (>1 cm), mixed, or solid...

Myofibroblastoma (MFB) of the breast is an uncommon benign stromal tumor. Herein, we present histopathologically proven MFB that hyperechoic well-defined breast mass in the ultrasonography and circumscribed high-density mass in mammography. Additionally, internal septations and hyperintense appearance on magnetic resonance imaging are very valuable findings in the differential diagnosis of MFB.

The study was aimed to investigate the role of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) in evaluating the response of patients with breast cancer after receiving neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC). A systematic search was conducted in PubMed, Spring, Wanfang, and CNKI databases from 1923 to December 2016. Based on fixed effect model or randomized effects model, standardized mean difference (SMD) with its 95% confidence interval (95% CI) was calculated in accordance with heterogeneity analysis. Cochran Q and I tests were used to measure heterogeneity...

Metaplastic carcinoma is a rare subtype of breast cancer that comprises histologically diverse malignancies. Metaplastic carcinoma tends to have an aggressive clinical presentation, high metastatic potential, and more chances of local recurrence, as compared with intraductal carcinoma. Although many clinical and pathologic finding have been reported, to our knowledge, there are few reports of imaging findings for this type of tumor.In this study, we reviewed data of 5 patients with histopathologically proven metaplastic breast carcinoma...

We aimed to determine the difference in tissue stiffness, which might reflect histologic damage, by comparing the potential of the shear wave elastography (SWE) values of operated undescended testes (OUT) with those of undescended testes (UT) and normal testes. A total of 120 patients (235 testes) were enrolled in the current study. Quantitative SWE values were measured by manually drawing contours of the entire testis structure with a free region of interest. A group of 66 OUT were classified as group A. Operation age and the period passed over the operation time and SWE values were compared among the testes assigned to group A...

Radiographic evaluation for necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) often yields nonspecific findings. Bowel ultrasound (BUS) provides additional information beyond that of abdominal radiographs and may be helpful in the diagnosis of NEC in neonates. We systematically reviewed and aggregated existing literature to get a better estimate of diagnostic accuracy of BUS in the diagnosis of NEC. A literature search was performed using PubMed, Embase, and Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature to identify studies in which infants with clinically suspected NEC were evaluated using BUS...

Gastric lipoma is a rare benign tumor of the stomach. The imaging characteristics are diagnostic because the lesion has fat attenuation on computed tomography and demonstrates characteristics of fat on magnetic resonance images. On ultrasound, the lesion can be identified as a lesion hypoechoic to the gastric mucosa that is soft, but the mass cannot be displaced with compression. Identifying these imaging characteristics can prevent biopsy or surgery in asymptomatic patients. Although this lesion is benign, it can cause gastric obstruction...

Emerging musculoskeletal applications for local administration of autologous bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) include treatment of fractures, osteonecrosis, osteochondral injuries, osteoarthritis, ligament injury, tendon injury, and tendonopathies. Ultrasound-guided technique for various BMAC injection sites is detailed in this technical report and our preliminary clinical experience outlined.Five patients, 1 woman and 4 men, were treated with 6 peri/intratendinous (n = 4) or intraarticular (n = 2) BMAC injections between July 5, 2015 and December 31, 2016 for the clinical indications of common hamstrings origin tendinosis (n = 4), hip labral tear (n = 1), and osteochondral lesion of the talus (n = 1)...

Sonography of the cecum has come of age largely as a consequence of the successful evolution of appendiceal sonography as a useful tool in the evaluation of patients with right lower-quadrant pain. At some medical centers, graded-compression sonography (GCS) has become the initial imaging study of choice in the assessment of these individuals. The cecum serves as a helpful anatomic landmark for localization of the appendix in these examinations-providing a sonographic starting point in the search for the appendix...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to investigate the relationship between the elastic modulus and the histological components of parotid adenolymphoma by using real-time shear wave elastography. METHODS: A total of 157 patients, histologically confirmed as having parotid adenolymphoma, were enrolled in the study. The maximum and the mean elastic modulus of the parotid mass were measured by using preoperative shear wave elastography. Parotid adenolymphoma was histopathologically subdivided into different types based on the relative proportion of stromal to cellular components...

Enlargement of the fetal spleen is usually found secondary to systemic diseases and is frequently associated with hepatomegaly. By far, the most common causes of fetal splenomegaly are infectious. Other etiologies responsible for this sign are hemolytic anemia, congestive cardiac failure, metabolic disorders, and rarely, leukemia, lymphoma, and histiocytosis.We report a case of prenatal splenomegaly diagnosed at 35 weeks, confirmed in the postnatal period. The postnatal workup showed the newborn had a familial type 3 form of hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH)...

Meig syndrome is the triad of benign ovarian tumor, ascites, and pleural effusion. Pseudo-Meig syndrome mimics the Meig syndrome triad; however, in pseudo-Meig syndrome, the ovarian tumor usually represents a primary malignancy or metastases. Differentiating Meig from pseudo-Meig syndrome is challenging both clinically and with diagnostic imaging but is important because prognoses for these distinct entities are drastically different. Evidence-based sonographic prediction models are valuable because they can aid in this distinction...

Hepatic vein stenosis after liver transplantation is a relatively rare complication that could even result in graft loss. However, it is difficult to arrive at a definite diagnosis at the early stage of postoperation, and there are few researches on ultrasonic shear wave elastography in the diagnosis of hepatic vein stenosis. We report the case of an 11-year-old male patient with cirrhosis due to hepatolenticular degeneration who received an auxiliary left hemiliver graft from his uncle. Massive ascites developed in 4 days after the operation...

Breast lymphoma is uncommon, and it usually involves breast parenchyma and ipsilateral axillary lymph nodes. We report rare cases of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma involving the skin and subcutaneous fat layers mimicking panniculitis of the breasts in a 33-year-old male patient who presented with a growing palpable mass and pain in both breasts and in 17-year-old female patient who presented with an indolent palpable breast mass for 1 year. Extranodal natural killer/T-cell nasal-type and subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphomas were diagnosed after skin punch biopsies...
