The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of ultrasound-assisted immersion freezing (UIF) on the freezing rate and quality of porcine longissimus muscles under different ultrasound powers. UIF with a certain level of ultrasound power significantly (P>0.05) accelerated the freezing rate. The phase transition times of samples treated with UIF at 180W (UIF-180) were the shortest. There were no significant differences (P>0.05) in a* (redness), b* (yellowness), pH values or cooking loss among UIF, IF, and control (fresh muscle) samples...

Melioidosis is endemic in Southeast Asia and tropical Australia with varying clinical features from benign skin lesions to fatal septicaemia. Imaging plays an important role in evaluation of the melioid liver abscesses. A 45-year-old man with underlying diabetes presented with fever and lethargy for 2 weeks and abdominal pain for 2 days. His liver was enlarged on examination. Blood investigations revealed mild leucocytosis and raised liver enzymes. Ultrasound showed multiple multiloculated hypoechoic lesions throughout the liver and spleen...

Tumor vascular endothelium and extracellular matrix (ECM) as the major barriers of anticancer nanomedicine greatly limited the anticancer efficacy of treatment, but few strategies were available to overcome them simultaneously. Thus, herein a strategy was presented to utilize reversible vasodilatation effect of nitric oxide (NO) and size-controlled characteristic of ultrasound responsive liposome (URL) to construct a non-destructive nanomedicine, which was able to cross both obstacles simultaneously. In this work, URL was built as a carrier via forming a gas layer between lipid bilayer to encapsulate small particles PAMAM@DOX (PD, ~10nm) and NO donation-nitrosoglutathione (GSNO)...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Magnetic Resonance Guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS) for liver tumour ablation is a challenging task due to motion caused by breathing and occlusion due the ribcage between the transducer and the tumour. To overcome these challenges, a novel system for liver tumour ablation during free breathing has been designed. METHODS: The novel TRANS-FUSIMO Treatment System (TTS, EUFP7) interacts with a Magnetic Resonance (MR) scanner and a focused ultrasound transducer to sonicate to a moving target in liver...

Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is considered useful for the staging and diagnosis of lung cancer or thoracic lymph node enlargement; however, little is known about its complications. Between July 2009 and November 2016, 413 patients underwent EBUS-TBNA, and four complications (0.97%) occurred. Here we report four cases involving complications of EBUS-TBNA, including mediastinitis (n = 2), obstructive pneumonia (n = 1), and airway obstruction requiring admission to the intensive care unit (n = 1)...

Post-thrombotic syndrome, a frequent complication of deep venous thrombosis can be reduced with early vein recanalization. Pulsed cavitational therapy (PCT) using ultrasound is a recent non-invasive approach. We propose to test the efficacy and safety of high-frequency focused PCT for a drug-free thrombolysis (thrombotripsy) in a realistic in vitro model of venous thrombosis. To reproduce venous thrombosis conditions, human whole blood was allowed to clot by stasis in silicone tubes (6 mm internal diameter) at a 30 cmH20 pressure, maintained during the whole experiment...

Acute cholecystitis (AC) is mainly caused by stones in the gall bladder. Although cholescintigraphy has the highest sensitivity (97%) and specificity (94%) for AC, ultrasound is the most commonly used technique in confirming the diagnosis. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the recom-mended treatment of choice; however, in high-risk patients percutaneous gall bladder drainage is an attractive alter-native approach to avoid lesions to the common bile duct. To avoid serious bleeding incidences, it is imperative to pause anticoagulation therapy prior to gall bladder drainage...

Abdominal ultrasonography revealed a pancreatic mass in a 67-year-old man with diabetes mellitus. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration led to the histological diagnosis of acinar cell carcinoma. The clinical stage was determined to be IVb based on findings of multiple metastatic lesions in the liver and lymph nodes, as well as splenic vein infiltration. Because the patient was not a surgical candidate, he underwent chemotherapy with modified FOLFIRINOX. In the absence of any severe adverse events, 12 courses of chemotherapy were delivered, resulting in marked shrinkage of both the primary and metastatic lesions...

INTRODUCTION: Acute concomitant rupture of both anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and patellar tendon is a rare injury. The diagnosis of either of the injuries may be missed on clinical examination in the emergency room. A high index of suspicion is necessary when active extension is absent, and necessary investigations like ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) should be done to confirm the diagnosis. There are no fixed treatment protocols in these injuries. The options include immediate repair of patellar tendon with either simultaneous or delayed reconstruction of ACL...

Ultrasound-mediated drug delivery in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is a bourgeoning area of study. Localized, low-frequency ultrasound has recently been shown to enable significant enhancement in delivery of a broad set of active pharmaceutical ingredients including small molecules, proteins, and nucleic acids without any formulation or encapsulation of the therapeutic. Traditional chemical formulations are typically required to protect, stabilize, and enable the successful delivery of a given therapeutic...

Cryoneurolysis entails using low temperatures to reversibly ablate nerves, with a subsequent analgesia duration measured in weeks or months. Previously, clinical applications for acute pain were limited because treatment originally required exposing the target nerve surgically. However, three developments have now made it possible to provide prolonged postoperative analgesia by cryoneurolysis: 1) new portable, hand-held cryoneurolysis devices, 2) ultrasound machine proliferation, and, 3) anesthesiologists trained in ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve block administration...
