Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow is sensitive to many cerebral disorders. We aimed to develop a noninvasive bedside method to detect physiological and pathological CSF phenomena by measuring pulsation patterns of the third ventricle. By transcranial B-mode ultrasound, electrocardiography (ECG)-gated video loops of the third ventricle were acquired. "Speckle tracking" software was used to quantify the relative change of its width. We conducted measurements of nine cardiac cycles in 11 healthy subjects in sitting and in supine position during Valsalva maneuver to investigate the influence of an increased intracranial pressure on the relative deformation of the third ventricle...

Jacob Pace, Robert Arntfield
The use of point-of-care ultrasound in trauma provides diagnostic clarity and routinely influences management. A scanning protocol known as the Focused Assessment with Sonography in Trauma (FAST) has been widely adopted by trauma providers of all specialties. The FAST exam addresses a broad array of pathologic conditions capable of causing instability, including hemoperitoneum, hemopericardium, hemothorax, and pneumothorax. The exam is an integral component to the primary assessment of injured patients and an iconic application of point-of-care ultrasound...

REVIEW
Marc Bazot, Emile Daraï
The aim of the present review was to evaluate the contribution of clinical examination and imaging techniques, mainly transvaginal sonography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to diagnose deep infiltrating (DE) locations using prisma statement recommendations. Clinical examination has a relative low sensitivity and specificity to diagnose DE. Independently of DE locations, for all transvaginal sonography techniques a pooled sensitivity and specificity of 79% and 94% are observed approaching criteria for a triage test...

The authors present two clinical cases, in which intraoperative transcranial sonography (TCS) was used to detect a change in contralateral hematoma volume. A 51-year-old female and a 5-year-old male underwent osteoplastic craniotomy for epidural hematoma removal. Scant contralateral hematoma was evident by preoperative computed tomography in both patients. Intraoperative TCS was used to detect changes in contralateral hematomas. After observing a volume change in one case, a second operation was performed immediately...

INTRODUCTION: Compression ultrasound is a non-invasive technique allowing for qualitative visualization and quantitative measurements of mechanical tissue properties. In acute compartment syndrome (ACS), cadaver studies have proven that the intra-compartmental pressure (ICP) measured by compression sonography correlates with the ICP measured invasively. This study aimed to evaluate compression sonography for compartment pressure measurements in an animal model. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The pressure in the anterior tibial compartment of 6 domestic pig legs was increased from baseline to 40mmHg in 5mmHg steps...

BACKGROUND: The noninvasive encapsulated follicular variant of papillary carcinoma (nEFVPTC) has recently been reclassified to "noninvasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP)," removing this entity from the malignant category. This re-categorization has had major implications for clinical management. NIFTP has overlapping cytohistologic features with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) and with follicular adenomas (FA), but sonographic data comparing NIFTP to PTC and FA is lacking...

BACKGROUND: Behçet's disease (BD) is a chronic autoimmune disorder with symptoms manifesting from an underlying vasculitis. Since the disease activity is correlated with the characteristic vascular endothelial dysfunction, BD places individuals at increased risk of cardiovascular diseases, such as atherosclerosis. Hyperhomocysteinemia is an independent risk factor for arteriosclerotic vascular diseases. This study was designed to investigate how plasma homocysteine (Hcy) effects the structural and functional properties of the carotid artery in humans...
