BACKGROUND: The most widely used graft as a replacement in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is the semitendinosus (ST) tendon graft. After harvesting for ACL reconstruction, the hamstring tendon regenerates in most people and becomes similar to normal. The effect of graft harvest on muscle morphology and function remains unclear. The present study aimed to examine the morphology of the ST during isometric contraction after harvesting the ST tendon for ACL reconstruction...

Transoral thyroidectomy (TOT) represents reasonably the desirable minimally invasive approach to the gland due to the scarless non-visible incisions, the limited distance between the gland and the access that minimize tissue dissection and respect of the surgical anatomical planes. Patients are routinely selected according to an extensive inclusion criteria: (I) ultrasonographically (US) estimated thyroid diameter not larger than 10 cm; (II) US gland volume ≤45 mL; (III) nodule size ≤50 mm; (IV) a benign tumor, such as a thyroid cyst, single-nodular goiter, or multinodular goiter; (V) follicular neoplasm; (VI) papillary microcarcinoma without lymph node metastasis...

INTRODUCTION: Although grayscale ultrasound and color Doppler ultrasound characteristics of the torsed testis are well established in the literature, less is known about its anatomic partner: the epididymis. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to describe the ultrasound characteristics of the epididymis in pediatric patients with testicular torsion, and to describe their potential role as prognostic criteria for testicular salvage outcomes. STUDY DESIGN: During a retrospective review of 217 pediatric patients with acute testicular torsion during 2009-2016, morphological features of the epididymis from scrotal ultrasounds (size, parenchymal characteristics, and vascular flow of both epididymis heads), as well as patient demographics, time duration, surgical outcomes, histopathology results, and follow-up periods were analyzed...

Thickness of the individual layers of the wall of the stomach, duodenum, jejunum and colon was assessed by means of ultrasonography in developing puppies at 4, 8 and 16weeks of age. Reference intervals for the thickness of individual ultrasonographic layers of the stomach, duodenum, jejunum and colon at different ages are reported. An increase in wall thickness of all the examined gastro-intestinal tracts in relation to age was recorded. The effect of body-weight was stronger on duodenal and jejunal thickness whereas it resulted lesser on stomach and colon...

OBJECTIVE: Ultrasonographic assessment of the cerebroplacental ratio (CPR) and middle cerebral artery (MCA) Doppler is widely used as an additional method to umbilical artery (UA) Doppler to identify fetuses at risk of adverse perinatal outcomes. However, reported estimates of its accuracy vary considerably. We conducted a systematic review with meta-analysis of studies on the prognostic accuracy of CPR and MCA Doppler, and compared this to UA Doppler. METHODS: We queried PubMed, EMBASE, the Cochrane Library, and ClinicalTrials...

Post-examination interpretation of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) cineloops of focal liver lesions (FLLs) requires offline manual assessment by experienced radiologists, which is time-consuming and generates subjective results. Such assessment usually starts by manually identifying a reference frame, where FLL and healthy parenchyma are well-distinguished. This study proposes an automatic computational method to objectively identify the optimal reference frame for distinguishing and hence delineating an FLL, by statistically analyzing the temporal intensity variation across the spatially discretized ultrasonographic image...

Neoplastic infiltration of the extraocular muscle (EOM) is a rare condition which can pose a diagnostic dilemma due to its rarity and overlapping ultrasonographic features with orbital myositis. The ultrasonographic features of neoplastic enlargement of EOM have not been systematically studied and previously have been described in only a few case reports. Orbital ultrasonography, in conjunction with the pattern of ocular misalignment, was assessed for its potential role in identifying patients with neoplastic EOM enlargement...
