Ultrasound in gynecology and obstetrics

Via Dr. Donald L. King The earlier decade has obvious the ascent of ultrasonography to a preeminent place as a diagnostic imaging modality for obstetrics and gynecology. it may be acknowledged with no qualification that sleek obstetrics and gynecology can't be practiced with out using diagnostic ultrasound, and specifically, using ultrasonogra­ phy.

Benign Breast Diseases: Radiology - Pathology - Risk Assessment

The second one variation of this e-book has been broadly revised and up-to-date. there was loads of clinical advances within the radiology, pathology and probability overview of benign breast lesions because the ebook of the 1st variation. the 1st version focused on screen-detected lesions, which has been rectified.

Ultrasmall lanthanide oxide nanoparticles for biomedical imaging and therapy

So much books speak about common and vast themes concerning molecular imagings. even though, Ultrasmall Lanthanide Oxide Nanoparticles for Biomedical Imaging and treatment, will in general specialise in lanthanide oxide nanoparticles for molecular imaging and therapeutics. Multi-modal imaging functions will mentioned, alongside with up-converting FI by utilizing lanthanide oxide nanoparticles.

Atlas and Anatomy of PET/MRI, PET/CT and SPECT/CT

This atlas showcases cross-sectional anatomy for the right kind interpretation of pictures generated from PET/MRI, PET/CT, and SPECT/CT functions. Hybrid imaging is on the vanguard of nuclear and molecular imaging and complements info acquisition for the needs of prognosis and therapy. Simultaneous overview of anatomic and metabolic information regarding common and irregular tactics addresses complicated medical questions and increases the extent of self belief of the test interpretation.

24 Main portal vein at the porta hepatis demonstrating hepatopetal flow. The higher velocity hepatic artery lies adjacent to the Main portal vein (arrow). zone is set over the back wall of the gallbladder to maximize the chances of identifying small stones (see Chapters 1 and 3). ● Alter the time gain compensation (TGC) to eliminate or minimize anterior artefacts and ● Use tissue harmonic imaging to reduce artifact within the gallbladder and sharpen the image of the wall (particularly in a large abdomen).

This is the area of the gallbladder fossa and you should see at least the anterior gallbladder wall if the gallbladder is present (Fig. 32). ● move with gravity. ) ● The stones may be smaller than the beam width, making the shadow difficult to display. Make sure the focal zone is set at the back of the gallbladder. ● Increase the line density, if possible, by reducing the field of view. ● Scan with the highest possible frequency to ensure the narrowest beam width. ● Reduce the TGC and/or power to make sure you have not saturated the echoes distal to the gallbladder (see Chapter 3).

B) Stone formation in the intrahepatic ducts. 10 (A) Small stone in the CBD causing intermittent obstruction. At the time of scanning, the CBD was normal in calibre at 5 mm. The duct walls are irregular, consistent with cholangitis. (B) Endoscopic cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) of a stone in a normal-calibre (5 mm) duct. with ultrasound should always be made, even if it is of normal calibre at the porta (Fig. 10). 2. 11A. In rare cases, stones may perforate the inflamed gallbladder wall to form a fistula into the small intestine or colon.
