REVIEW
Johannes Gossner
Capsular contracture or capsular fibrosis is the most common complication following breast augmentation with implants. Sonography is usually the initial imaging test performed to examine a suspicious implant. In contrast to the large number of patients developing capsular fibrosis there is only sparse literature reporting about sonographic findings. In this letter after a brief review of normal sonographic findings after breast augmentation, established ultrasound findings suggestive of capsular fibrosis (deformity, increased number of radial folds and thickening of the fibrous capsule) are discussed...

An unusual case of a penetrating grass awn in an eyelid of a dog is reported. A 6-month-old mixed breed dog was referred to the Ophthalmology Unit of the Veterinary Teaching Hospital of Camerino University for anorexia, lethargy, left monolateral ocular swelling and pain to the left eye, present from 1 month. Ophthalmic examination of the left eye showed copious and purulent discharge, and ultrasonography revealed the presence of an abscess containing a grass foreign body. The grass awn was surgically removed...

Vagal paragangliomas are rare benign tumors accounting for only 3% of head and neck paragangliomas and arise from vagal ganglions, predominately the nodose ganglion in the carotid sheath. Imaging plays an important role in their diagnosis, differentiation from more common lesions presenting in the carotid space, and management. MRI is the method of choice for investigation when paragangliomas are clinically suspected. The typical salt-and-pepper appearance in T1-weighted images is well known but not specific to paragangliomas...

Sonographic cardiac evaluation of newborns with suspected aortic coarctation (AoC) should tend to demonstrate a good phasic and pulsatile flow and the absence of pressure gradient along a normally conformed aortic arch from the modified left parasternal and suprasternal echocardiographic views; these findings, however, may not necessarily rule out a more distal coarctation in the descending aorta. For this reason, the sonographic exam of newborns with suspected AoC should always include a Doppler evaluation of abdominal aortic blood flow from the subcostal view...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the role of Doppler ultrasonography in the assessment of splanchnic circulation's hemodynamic changes in septic preterms at risk of necrotizing enterocolitis. METHODS: A total of 51 septic preterms were divided into two groups: 25 preterms with clinical signs of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and 26 preterms with no clinical signs of NEC. Both groups were assessed with Doppler ultrasonography of the celiac and superior mesenteric arteries, and each septic preterm's peak systolic velocity (PSV), end-diastolic velocity (EDV), resistivity index (RI), and pulsatility index (PI) was calculated and recorded...

PURPOSE: Nasogastric feeding tube is routinely positioned in intensive care units. The complications of misplacement are rare but very dangerous for the patients. The aim of this study is to estimate the diagnostic accuracy of this new technique, 4-point ultrasonography to confirm nasogastric tube placement in intensive care. METHODS: One hundred fourteen critical ill patients monitored in ICU were included. The intensivist provided in real time to perform the exam in four steps: sonography from either the right or left side of the patient's neck to visualize the esophagus, sonography of epigastrium to confirm the passage through the esophagogastric junction and the positioning in antrum, sonography of the fundus...

PURPOSE: It has been demonstrated that Doppler waveform of the hepatic vein (normally triphasic) is transformed into a biphasic or monophasic waveform in cirrhotic patients. The compressive mechanism of liver tissue has been considered up till now the cause of this change. Moreover, cirrhotics show, after USCA injection, a much earlier HVTT due to intrahepatic shunts. Our aim was to prospectively evaluate the correlation between Doppler pattern of hepatic vein and HVTT of a second-generation USCA; we also correlated HVTT with the most common indexes of portal hypertension...

PURPOSE: To compare and correlate the diagnostic efficiency of acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) elastography with biochemical markers for assessing hepatic changes in overweight and obese children. METHODS: This prospective study was approved by the institutional ethics committee. It included 54 overweight and obese children and 50 normal children (as a control group) in the age range 5-18 years. For all children, we performed grayscale ultrasonography to diagnose fatty liver, ARFI elastography to measure liver stiffness, and biochemical evaluation for aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), and serum triglyceride (TG) levels...

OBJECTIVES: Traditionally, facet joint injections (FJI) are performed under fluoroscopic or computed tomography (CT) guidance, mainly due to the deep anatomical location and the presence of bony landmarks. Fusion imaging technology, which couples the ultrasound scan with the corresponding CT or magnetic resonance (MR) image obtained from the diagnostic examination and reformatted in real time according to the ultrasound scanning plane, allows to combine the panoramic view and the elevated anatomical detail of MR or CT with the ease of use of ultrasound without patient exposure to ionizing radiation...

Benign thyroid nodules are a common disease in the general population. Most often, they are completely asymptomatic and discovered occasionally during routine ultrasound examinations, and do not require any treatment. When thyroid nodules become symptomatic, surgical excision is still considered standard treatment. In the last few years, several experiences in the treatment of benign thyroid nodules through image-guided percutaneous thermal ablation have been reported with encouraging results, so that currently, these treatments are often proposed as first-choice options for patients with symptomatic benign thyroid nodules...

Endoscopy remains the main technique in the diagnosis and treatment of Crohn's disease (CD); nevertheless, the recent development of innovative and non-invasive imaging techniques has led to a new tool in the exploration of small bowel in CD patients. This paper reviews the available data on ultrasound imaging used for the evaluation of CD, highlighting the role of small intestine contrast-enhanced ultrasonography with the use of oral and intravenous contrast agents.

Killian-Jamieson diverticulum (KJD) is a pharyngoesophageal diverticulum that can be observed during a neck ultrasound examination. Because of its position, it is frequently misinterpreted as a thyroid nodule. We present a case of an incidental finding of KJD, where changes in shape during dynamic scanning led to the correct diagnosis, preventing from invasive procedures such as fine needle aspiration.

This paper deals with two recent cases of Inferior Caval Vein (IVC) duplicity, congenital anomaly often but not always asymptomatic that should be considered in the differential diagnosis of flank pain when other more common disorders have been excluded. Here are described the clinical and surgical significance together with the typical sonographic findings useful for the diagnosis of IVC duplicity. Particular attention is given to a peculiar and easily repeatable sonographic aspect associated with IVC duplicity, not previously reported in Literature and that we called the "Neptune's sign"...

PURPOSE: Overdiagnosis induced by prostate cancer screening makes necessary a better selection of candidate patients for prostate biopsy. The objective of our study is to assess the probability of having a high- or low-risk lesion that could require active surveillance (AS) after biopsies and a normal or abnormal examination, including transrectal and power Doppler ultrasonography (TRUS-PDS). METHODS: Four hundred and twenty-nine consecutive patients with a PSA level <10 ng/ml and a normal digital rectal examination (DRE) had guided biopsies in a prospective study...

In this paper, we follow the thermodynamic theory with internal variables of Kluitenberg evaluating the entropy production of red blood cell in saline solution and whole blood, respectively, when they are subjected to an ultrasound wave. From a thermodynamic point of view, blood is an open system; so to fully represent the entropy variation as function of frequency perturbation we employ phenomenological coefficients which allow us to qualitatively discriminate among classes of phenomena which cannot be observed in any other way...

PURPOSE: Cervical pain is very frequent in the general population. In clinical practice, plain X-ray and, in selected cases, computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging, are performed. However, the feasibility and utility of ultrasound examination have been poorly investigated. Aim of the present study was to evaluate whether ultrasound could be useful in the diagnosis of localized cervical pain. METHODS: Subjects suffering from posterior cervical pain without irradiation to surrounding tissues were enrolled...
