INTRODUCTION: Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB) is an effective technique which may be used to manage upper extremities pain due to Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), in this study we tried to evaluate the effectiveness of this procedure under two different guidance for management of this syndrome. AIM: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of ultrsound guide SGB by comparing it with the furoscopy guided SGB in upper extermities CRPS patients in reducing pain & dysfuction of the affected link...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the risk factors, the ciliary body anatomy structures, the therapeutic methods and the prognosis for malignant glaucoma through retrospectively collecting the clinical data from primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG) patients. METHODS: Clinical data in 1183 patients (1456 eyes) with PACG were collected between July, 2010 and May, 2014 from Xiangya Hospital, Central South University. Thirty patients (38 eyes) were diagnosed as malignant glaucoma...

Our goal in this study was to evaluate the relevance of shear wave sonoelastography (SWE) in the differential diagnosis of masses in the breast with respect to ultrasound (US). US and SWE were performed (Aixplorer System, SuperSonic Imagine, Aix en Provence, France) in 76 women (aged 24 to 85) with 84 lesions (43 malignant, 41 benign). The study included BI-RADS-US (Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System for Ultrsound) category 3-5 lesions. In elastograms, the following values were calculated: mean elasticity in lesions (E(av...

OBJECTIVE: To develop clinical guidelines for musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSKUS) referral in Europe. METHODS: Sixteen musculoskeletal radiologists from seven European countries participated in a consensus-based interactive process (Delphi method) using consecutive questionnaires and consensus procedure meetings at several European radiology meetings. The evaluation of musculoskeletal diseases was established by literature reviews, followed by consensus on clinical utility in three consensus meetings...

Three commercially available ultrasound instruments were evaluated using pigs representative of the Canadian pig population: CVT-2, UltraFom 300 and AutoFom. The reflectance probe HGP2 was utilized as the baseline instrument. Sampling was stratified by fat thickness. The original data set (n=236) was divided randomly into a calibration set (n=194 [85 barrows and 109 gilts]) to calibrate the instruments and a validation set (n=72[32 barrows and 40 gilts]) for validating the calibration models. For salable meat yield, RMSE values for the calibration models were: HGP2, 1...

The killing effect on S180 cells was studied using the combination of protoporphyrin IX and focused ultrasound at the frequency of 2.2 MHz and different intensities. Cell viability was determined by trypan blue exclusion test, morphology changes were evaluated by means of scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy after ultrasonic exposure. The results indicated that protoporphyrin IX(PPIX) alone showed no significant effect on S180 cells when compared with that of control group. Ultrasound alone and ultrasound combined with PPIX groups showed some anti-tumor effect, which became more noticeable as the ultrasound intensity and PPIX concentration increased, and when the concentration of PPIX increased to 120 microM, the ultrasound combined with PPIX exerted a more significant anti-tumor effect than did the ultrasound alone in the same experiment...

Evaluation of pediatric emergencies by diagnostic imaging technics can involve both invasive and noninvasive procedures. Nuclear medicine, conventional radiography, ultrasound, computerized axial tomography, and xeroradiography are the major nonangiographic diagnostic technics available for patient evaluation. Appropriate decisions regarding choice of these imagining technics can be made only if the advantages and limitations of each are known. We will emphasize the use of computerized axial tomography, nuclear medicine, xeroradiography, and ultrsound in the evaluation of emergencies in the pediatric age group...

An evaluation of intra-operative B-mode ultrasound scanning of the extra-hepatic biliary tree and pancreas shows that it is a useful, noninvasive method of detecting bileduct calculi and assessing pancreatic disease. In 50 patients undergoing cholecystectomy for gallstones, ultrasound scanning was an accurate as per-operative cholangiography; the decision to explore the bileduct, made on ultrsound findings, was correct in 49/50 cases, and that made on X-ray findings was correct in 46/47 cases; there was 1 false-positive in each group...

Investigations done on implanted pacemakers with a low threshold against extraneous signals and in-vitro tests under suitable conditions both showed that pacemaker wearers may go near television and accessories such as ultrsound distant control or flexless infrared ear phones without any danger. Radio and television sets are fitted to an increasing degree with electronic sensor switches which initiate various functions after a slight touch. This satisfies present regulations of German Electrical Engineers concerning permitted contact currents...

Uncalibrated flow in the vertebral arteries was registered with a bidirectional CW Doppler ultrsound apparatus. It was applied to 20 patients, results being compared with aortic arch angiograms in which the extracranial part of all four cerebral vessels was seen. In 14 the vertebral arteries had a symmetrical flow and lumen, a similar symmetrical result being obtained with the Doppler. Hypoplasia of one vertebral artery was present in two patients the distinct asymmetry being recorded by the ultrasound. Three patients with central stenosis in one subclavian artery and subclavian "steal" were found to have reverse flow by the Doppler method in the vertebral artery on the side of the stenosis...
