OBJECTIVE: Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a common diagnosis with significant mortality if not appropriately treated. The use of transthoracic echocardiography in patients with PE is common; however, its diagnostic capabilities in this use are unclear. With the increased use of ultrasonography in medical settings, it is important to understand the strengths and limitations of echocardiography for the diagnosis of PE. METHODS: We conducted a systematic review of PubMed, CINAHL, and EMBASE through 2016 for articles assessing the diagnostic accuracy of transthoracic echocardiography for PE...

BACKGROUND: Penetrating Extremity Trauma (PET) may result in arterial injury, a rare but limb- and life-threatening surgical emergency. Accurate and timely diagnosis is vital to enable potential intervention and prevent significant morbidity. OBJECTIVES: Using a systematic review/meta-analysis approach, we determined the utility of Physical Examination (exam), Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI), and Ultrasonography (US) in the diagnosis of arterial injury in ED patients who have sustained PET...

INTRODUCTION: The use of ultrasonography to diagnose appendicitis has become increasingly common over recent years and is well-established. More recently, point of care ultrasonography (POCUS) has also been studied for the diagnosis of appendicitis, which may also prove a valuable diagnostic tool. The purpose of this study is through systematic review and meta-analysis to identify the test characteristics of POCUS, specifically ultrasonography performed by a non-radiologist physician, in accurately diagnosing acute appendicitis in patients of any age...

AIM: The accuracy for endoscopic ultrasonography-elastography (EUS-EG) in the evaluation of solid pancreatic masses varies greatly and the pooled results have not been updated since 2013. Also, there still lack a comprehensive comparison among EUS-EG, contrast-enhanced EUS (CE-EUS), and EUS-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA).Material and methods: A thorough search was made for diagnostic trials investigating the role of EUS-EG in solid pancreatic masses. Meta-Disc was used to calculate the pooled sensitivity, specificity, diagnostic odds ratio and summary receiver operator characteristics...

BACKGROUND: Gastric tubes are commonly used for the administration of drugs and tube feeding for people who are unable to swallow. Feeding via a tube misplaced in the trachea can result in severe pneumonia. Therefore, the confirmation of tube placement in the stomach after tube insertion is important. Recent studies have reported that ultrasonography provides good diagnostic accuracy estimates in the confirmation of appropriate tube placement. Hence, ultrasound could provide a promising alternative to X-rays in the confirmation of tube placement, especially in settings where X-ray facilities are unavailable or difficult to access...

BACKGROUND: The potential for an ultrasound-based screening programme for renal cell carcinoma (RCC) to improve survival through early detection has been the subject of much debate. The prevalence of ultrasound-detected asymptomatic RCC is an important first step to establishing whether a screening programme may be feasible. METHODS: A systematic search of MEDLINE and Embase was performed up to March 2016 to identify studies reporting the prevalence of renal masses and RCC...

OBJECTIVE: To review the evidence on diagnostic accuracy of ultrasonography for detecting correct nasogastric tube (NGT) placement in adults compared to X-ray as the reference standard. METHODS: This is a systematic review and meta-analysis of observational studies, searched in the literature between 1961 and 2015. We included studies which compared the diagnostic accuracy of ultrasonography detection for NGT placement with X-ray in adult patients who were undergoing NGT placement for any reason in any care setting...
