BACKGROUND: Previous research has shown variable but generally poor accuracy of transabdominal ultrasonography in the diagnosis of gallbladder polyps. We performed a systematic review of the literature with the aim of helping surgeons interpret and apply these findings in the preoperative assessment and counselling of their patients. METHODS: We searched PubMed, MEDLINE and the Cochrane database using the keywords "gallbladder," "polyp," "ultrasound," "pathology" and "diagnosis" for English-language articles published after 1990 with the full-text article available through our institutional subscriptions...

BACKGROUND: Sinusoidal obstruction syndrome (SOS)/hepatic veno-occlusive disease (VOD) is a well-documented complication after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Transabdominal ultrasonography (US) enables to visualize blood flow abnormalities and is therefore useful for the diagnosis of SOS/VOD. We herein prospectively evaluated accuracy of a novel ultrasonographic diagnostic scoring system of SOS/VOD based on US findings. METHODS: We carried out US in 106 patients on day 14 and when SOS/VOD was suspected after allogeneic HSCT...

REVIEW
Andrzej Woźniak, Sławomir Woźniak
Uterine leiomyomas or uterine fibroids are the most common gynaecological tumours and occur in about 20-50% of women around the world. Ultrasonography (USG) is the first-line imaging examination in suspected fibroids and shows high sensitivity and specificity in diagnosing this condition. Ultrasound scans can be performed transvaginally (transvaginal scan - TVS) or transabdominally (transabdominal scan - TAS); both scans have advantages and limitations, but, in general, transvaginal sonography is superior to transabdominal sonography in most cases of pelvic pathology...

BACKGROUND: The sliding sign (the relative motion between the abdominal and uterine wall as assessed by ultrasonography) may help identify severe intra-abdominal adhesions before repeat cesarean delivery. METHODS: We conducted a prospective observational study of scheduled repeat cesarean deliveries. Using transabdominal ultrasonography, while the parturient breathed deeply, the ultrasonographer recorded a video clip in a sagittal plane lateral to the umbilicus...

INTRODUCTION: In the work-up of patients with suspected pelvic congestion syndrome, venography is currently the gold standard. Yet if non-invasive diagnostic tools are found to be accurate, invasive venography might no longer be indicated as necessary. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A literature search in Pubmed and EMBASE was performed from inception until May 6th 2017. Studies comparing non-invasive diagnostic tools to a reference standard in the work-up of patients with (suspected) pelvic congestion syndrome were included...

PURPOSE: To determine whether ovarian morphology imaged using transabdominal ultrasonography reflects clinical and metabolic features in adolescents with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). METHODS: A retrospective pilot study was conducted in 33 adolescents (12-18 years) with PCOS as defined by hyperandrogenism and irregular cycles. Adolescents underwent the following assessments at a random time during the menstrual cycle: transabdominal ultrasonography, physical examination (height, weight, and systolic and diastolic blood pressure), fasting hormonal tests (free, percent free, and total testosterone, androstenedione, follicle stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone), and metabolic tests (including an oral glucose tolerance test, fasting and 2-hour insulin and glucose, homeostatic model assessment of insulin resistance, and whole-body insulin sensitivity index)...

Uterine fibroids often cause symptoms of pelvic pain, pressure, and bleeding and a significant cause of morbidity for women of reproductive age. A new, Food and Drug Administration approved noninvasive treatment option is magnetic resonance guided focused ultrasound surgery, which has the potential to become a treatment of choice for selected patients. The purpose of the study was to compare and evaluate the usefulness of MRI and transabdominal ultrasonography for the diagnosis of uterine fibroids. A cross sectional study was carried out in the department of Radiology & Imaging of Mymensingh Medical College Hospital, during the period of January' 2010 to December 2011...

Cystoscopy (CS) is considered to be the gold standard in the follow-up of non-muscle invasive bladder cancer. However, CS is invasive, time-consuming, and expensive. On the other hand, modern sensitive transducers have improved the imaging of urinary tract rendering transabdominal ultrasonography (US) more effective in visualizing intraluminal filling defects in the bladder than it was in the past. Twenty-five follow-up patients of low-risk bladder cancer meeting the inclusion and exclusion criteria were included in study...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Chronic pancreatitis (CP) is sometimes diagnosed at the progressed stage. For the early diagnosis of CP, endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) may be a useful method, but its diagnostic criteria is based on subjective judgment. Shear wave elastography (SW-EG) using transabdominal ultrasonography, which quantifies tissue elasticity as an absolute value, may be an objective and noninvasive method for the diagnosis of CP. METHODS: Eighty-five patients with known or suspected CP who underwent both EUS and SW-EG from October 2012 to July 2016 were included in this study...
