Sixty-six per cent of ulcerated limbs with continuous flow in the long saphenous vein had deep venous obstruction, 27% had deep venous reflux with cellulitis and 7% had lymphoedema in addition to venous ulceration. CONCLUSION: Continuous flow in the long saphenous vein in patients with venous ulceration should alert the clinician to the possibility of deep venous obstruction. Such limbs should be treated by compression bandaging with extreme caution.  (+info)

Popliteal artery occlusion as a late complication of liquid acrylate embolization for cerebral vascular malformation. (2/1865)

Occlusion of arteriovenous malformations of the brain (BAVMs) by means of an endovascular approach with liquid acrylate glue is an established treatment modality. The specific hazards of this procedure are related to the central nervous system. In the case of unexpectedly rapid polymerization of the cyanoacrylate glue and adhesion of the delivering microcatheter to the BAVM, severing the catheter at the site of vascular access is considered an acceptable and safe management. We present a unique complication related to this technique that has not been described yet. Fragmentation and migration of the microcatheter, originally left in place, had caused popliteal artery occlusion, which required saphenous vein interposition, in a 25-year-old man. Suggestions for avoiding this complication are discussed.  (+info)

Factors influencing the development of vein-graft stenosis and their significance for clinical management. (3/1865)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the influence of clinical and graft factors on the development of stenotic lesions. In addition the implications of any significant correlation for duplex surveillance schedules or surgical bypass techniques was examined. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In a prospective three centre study, preoperative and peroperative data on 300 infrainguinal autologous vein grafts was analysed. All grafts were monitored by a strict duplex surveillance program and all received an angiogram in the first postoperative year. A revision was only performed if there was evidence of a stenosis of 70% diameter reduction or greater on the angiogram. RESULTS: The minimum graft diameter was the only factor correlated significantly with the development of a significant graft stenosis (PSV-ratio > or = 2.5) during follow-up (p = 0.002). Factors that correlated with the development of event-causing graft stenosis, associated with revision or occlusion, were minimal graft diameter (p = 0.001), the use of a venovenous anastomosis (p = 0.005) and length of the graft (p = 0.025). Multivariate regression analysis revealed that the minimal graft diameter was the only independent factor that significantly correlated with an event-causing graft stenosis (p = 0.009). The stenosis-free rates for grafts with a minimal diameter < 3.5 mm, between 3.5-4.5 and > or = 4.5 mm were 40%, 58% and 75%, respectively (p = < 0.05). Composite vein and arm-vein grafts with minimal diameters > or = 3.5 mm were compared with grafts which consisted of a single uninterrupted greater saphenous vein with a minimal diameter of < 3.5 mm. One-year secondary patency rates in these categories were of 94% and 76%, respectively (p = 0.03). CONCLUSIONS: A minimal graft diameter < 3.5 mm was the only factor that significantly correlated with the development of a graft-stenosis. However, veins with larger diameters may still develop stenotic lesions. Composite vein and arm-vein grafts should be used rather than uninterrupted small caliber saphenous veins.  (+info)

Diagnosis of twin reversed arterial perfusion sequence in the first trimester by transvaginal color Doppler ultrasound. (4/1865)

A case of twin reversed arterial perfusion (TRAP) sequence was diagnosed at 12 weeks' gestation using transvaginal color Doppler ultrasound, which demonstrated the presence of retrograde perfusion in the umbilical artery of the abnormal twin. Ultrasound imaging showed a monochorionic-diamniotic twin pregnancy with an inappropriately grown second twin, the morphological evaluation of which revealed an abnormal cephalic pole with acrania, diffuse subcutaneous edema and the presence of cardiac activity in an abnormal heart with a single chamber.  (+info)

Focal aneurysmal dilatation of subchorionic vessels simulating chorioangioma. (5/1865)

Subchorionic vascular aneurysms of the placenta are rare lesions and may present confusion with chorioangioma or focal mesenchymal dysplasia on sonography. To our knowledge, the findings of placental aneurysms have not been reported in the ultrasound literature. We present a case with detailed sonographic evaluation, including spectral and color Doppler and pathological analysis, that was mistaken for chorioangioma prenatally. Knowledge of this benign entity may allow the sonologist to recommend conservative management in similar cases.  (+info)

Volume flow measurement in hemodialysis shunts using time-domain correlation. (6/1865)

Volume flow was measured in 58 hemodialysis shunts (32 grafts and 26 radial fistulas) using the color velocity imaging-quantification method. This method is based on time-domain correlation for velocity calculation and integration of time-varying velocity profiles generated by M-mode sampling. Measurements were made in the brachial artery to estimate radial fistula flow or directly in the grafts. Intraoperator reproducibility was 14.9% for fistulas and 11.6% for grafts. Flow rate was significantly lower in abnormal shunts associated with a functional disorder or a morphologic complication (808 ml/min +/- 484) than in shunts associated with no abnormalities (1401 ml/min +/- 562). Receiver operating characteristic curves showed that a flow rate of 900 ml/min for fistulas and 1300 ml/min for grafts provided 81% and 79% sensitivity and 79% and 67% specificity, respectively. A functional disorder or a morphologic complication was associated with all fistulas and grafts in which flow rates were lower than 500 ml/min and 800 ml/min, respectively.  (+info)

Signal-enhanced color Doppler sonography of deep venous thrombosis in the lower limbs and pelvis. (7/1865)

Detection of Doppler signal tends to be more difficult in peripheral veins owing to low flow velocity. This can be caused by nonoccluding thrombosis, post-thrombotic wall changes, or a deep anatomic location of pelvic veins. The last-mentioned frequently is accompanied by interference by bowel gas. In addition, inappropriate insonation angles adversely affect the outcome of color-coded Doppler interrogation. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the effectiveness of signal-enhanced color Doppler sonography on peripheral veins in 31 patients clinically suspected of having deep vein thrombosis. As a result of diagnostic uncertainty, additional enhanced studies were performed on 43 venous segments. The enhancement led to a decrease in false-positive results (from four patients to one patient) and false-negative results (from four patients to two patients) compared to unenhanced studies. Evaluation of the deeply located pelvic veins profited the most through signal enhanced Doppler sonography.  (+info)

Lumen reduction measurements of the internal carotid artery before and after Levovist enhancement: reproducibility and agreement with angiography. (8/1865)

Our aim was to assess reproducibility of three different lumen reduction measuring methods--North American Symptomatic Carotid Endarterectomy Trial, European Carotid Surgery Trial, and common carotid--using power Doppler and color Doppler sonography before and after Levovist enhancement. We included 20 symptomatic patients with mild or severe carotid disease. North American Symptomatic Carotid Endarterectomy Trial, European Carotid Surgery Trial, and common carotid measurements on longitudinal views and European Carotid Surgery Trial measurements on transverse views were performed. Examinations were repeated and the results compared to assess reproducibility of measurements. Correlation with angiography was obtained by calculating Pearson correlation coefficients. Reproducibility was significantly better (P < 0.05) for European Carotid Surgery Trial and common carotid measurements (95% limits of agreement between -10% to 10% and -19% to 17%) as compared to North American Symptomatic Carotid Endarterectomy Trial measurements (95% limits of agreement between -11% to 21% and -21% to 23%). Variability of measurements after enhancement increased slightly (not significant) for both power and color Doppler sonography. Additionally, European Carotid Surgery Trial measurements, using nonenhanced power Doppler or color Doppler sonography, did not correlate significantly with angiography, whereas North American Symptomatic Carotid Endarterectomy Trial and common carotid measurements correlated well with angiography, particularly in power Doppler mode after enhancement (r = 0.88 and r = 0.82, respectively). We conclude that for lumen reduction measurements of the internal carotid artery with power and color Doppler sonography, the common carotid method is the only method that is reproducible and has good correlation with angiography, which slightly improves after Levovist enhancement.  (+info)

PURPOSE: To document differences in color Doppler flow and gray-scale ultrasonographic (US) features between benign and malignant axillary lymph nodes in women with primary breast cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The longitudinal-transverse axis ratio and hilar status on color Doppler flow and gray-scale US images were prospectively studied for each of 145 axillary nodes in 135 women (74 palpable nodes in 69 women, 71 nonpalpable nodes in 66 women) with primary breast cancer. Intranodal flow distribution was described as peripheral, central, or central perhilar. Resistive and pulsatility indexes and peak systolic velocity were documented. For comparison of benign and malignant features, nodes were divided into three groups: palpable and nonpalpable, palpable, and nonpalpable. RESULTS: Color flow was demonstrated equally well in benign and malignant axillary lymph nodes for all three groups. For all nodes, peripheral flow was significantly higher in malignant (118 of 153 nodes [77%]) than benign ...

The study was to investigate the role of color Doppler ultrasonography in the evaluation of the effect of Rex-bypass shunt on the cavernous transformation of the portal vein (CTPV) in children. Fifty children with symptomatic extrahepatic portal hypertension who received Rex-bypass shunt were retrospectively reviewed, and they were diagnosed with CTPV by ultrasonography. The clinical characteristics were analyzed before and after operation. Forty-five patients received color Doppler ultrasonography at 6 months after surgery, and good patency in the bypass vessels was displayed. The platelet count significantly increased (P | 0.001) and the esophagogastric varices were improved significantly (p | 0.001). The patency of bypass vessels on color Doppler ultrasonography was consistent with the changes in the platelet count and the degree of esophagogastric varices on gastroscopy before and after operation. The diameter of bypass vessels at 6 months was slightly larger than that at 7 days after operation, and

Figure 5 Blooming. Longitudinal images of the third metacarpophalangeal joint with massive synovial hypertrophy (s). To obtain good acoustic contact to the convex skin surface, generous amounts of scanning gel (G) have been applied. The joint is subluxated with volar displacement of the proximal phalanx (PP) relative to the metacarpal bone (MC). The top images are from the systole and the bottom images from the diastole of the same cardiac cycle. The images were stored as raw-dicom, which allows for off-line adjustment of colour Doppler gain. The three systolic images and the three diastolic images are therefore temporally and spatially identical, respectively. The left images are with our routine settings, showing large confluent areas of colour. It is a clear case of blooming: the colour bleeds outside the vessels (that are so small that they cannot be outlined with certainty on the grey-scale image). In the diastole, blooming is not as pronounced but definitely present. Notice that the images ...

Abstract This article discusses the correlation between ultrasound features and cervical lymph node metastasis (CLNM) of thyroid cancer (TC). 110 patients with TC were enrolled. According to pathological results, they were divided into metastasis group (59 cases) and non-metastasis group (51 cases). Both groups were completed the two-dimensional ultrasound and color Doppler ultrasound examination before the operation. Pearson correlation coefficient and Logistic analysis were used to get the correlation between ultrasound features and CLNM of TC. The results show that, the cases in metastasis group with ultrasound features as nodule diameter ≥ 1.5 cm, aspect ratio ≥ 1, inhomogeneous echo, microcalcification, abundant internal blood supply and the distance from capsule (d)=0 were more than those in the non-metastasis group (P,0.05). Pearson analysis showed a significant positive correlation between CLNM and nodule diameter, aspect ratio, echo, microcalcification and abundant internal blood ...
Preoperative ultrasound characteristics of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) associated with extranodal extension (ENE) have been identified.
Venous thromboembolism represents a frequent complication following total joint arthroplasty (TJA). Many international guidelines for deep venous thrombosis (DVT) prophylaxis do not recommend a preoperative lower limb duplex ultrasound before total hip and knee arthroplasty. This study is aimed at determining whether a preoperative doppler ultrasonographic screening is cost-effective as a DVT and pulmonary embolism prevention device. A series of 2678 consecutive patients undergoing TJA received preoperative assessment for DVT via bilateral lower limbs color doppler ultrasonography. The study group included 1697 females (63.3%) and 981 males (46.7%): all patients were included regardless of absence of previous vascular symptoms. Assessment included examination of bilateral common femoral, superficial femoral, popliteal, anterior tibial, and posterior tibial veins. The preoperative ultrasound screening highlighted the presence of DVTs in 120 patients (4.5%). Those patients were withdrawn from the ...

Intratesticular arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are extremely rare benign incidental lesions of the testis. Ultrasonography (US) generally reveals a hypoechoic solid mass within the testicular parenchyma. We describe a patient with intratesticular AVM which was found incidentally during workup for infertility. The gray-scale and Doppler US appearance of an intratesticular AVM and the differential diagnosis have been presented. Based on the gray-scale, US appearance differentiation from malignant testicular tumors is difficult. Doppler US examination aids in the diagnosis by demonstrating the vascular nature of the tumor.

Cerebral hemorrhages are fairly common in full-term neonates with no history of traumatic birth, mostly limited, and with benign evolution. We report a case of a full-term neonate from vaginal birth with caput succedaneum in the right parietal area. The neonate underwent cranial ultrasonography and color Doppler which showed extra-axial blood effusion. Color Doppler showed vessels crossing the collection area, which allowed the diagnosis of subarachnoid hematoma.
Results-On sonography, all fibroadenomas presented as masses. The mean size was 30 mm. Regarding shape, there were 29 oval, 2 round, and 3 irregular masses. The margins were circumscribed in 24, indistinct in 5, microlobulated in 4, and angular in 1. Regarding echogenicity, 16 masses were hypoechoic, 16 isoechoic, and 2 complex echoic. Posterior acoustic characteristics included posterior acoustic enhancement in 22 masses (65%), posterior shadowing in 1, and no posterior acoustic features in 9; this information was not available in 2. The lesion boundary presented as an abrupt interface in 32 and an echogenic halo in 2. The orientation was parallel in 32 and nonparallel in 2. Calcifications were present in 3 cases and absent in 31. On color Doppler sonography, the masses were usually hypervascular with vessel counts of 5 or more (87%). The BI-RADS final assessment categories were 3 in 24 and 4a in 10 ...

Recent studies showed that the sensitivity of ultrasound for diagnosing pneumonia is at least comparable to chest x-ray. However, little is known about the ultrasound characteristics of different types of pneumonia. Therefore the aim of our study was to evaluate and compare the ultrasound characteristics of lung infiltrates in different types of pneumonia in children.. In our prospective study, we included 117 children hospitalized because of community acquired pneumonia, caused by bacteria, viruses and Mycoplasma pneumoniae (atypical pneumonia) in 50, 39 and 28 subjects, respectively. Lung ultrasound was performed in the first 24 hours after admission and the investigation was repeated after 48-72 hours in 105 subjects. Size (largest diameter) and localisation (unilateral/bilateral) of infiltrates were recorded.. Lung infiltrates were detected with ultrasound in 115 (98.3%) subjects, compared to 95 (81.2%) subjects with infiltrates seen on chest x-ray (p,0.01). Bilateral infiltrates were ...

The authors have been developing a model of blood flow in the heart. The flow model of the heart enables us to estimate the entire blood flow of the heart from a couple of 2-D color Doppler images. Therefore, the load on patients is expected to be reduced. To develop the model of the heart, precise observation and an understanding of the blood flow are indispensable, because the flow is strongly related to the diagnosis of heart diseases. The visualization method must have the following features: (1) 3-D (2) objectivity (3) interactivity and (4) multi-aspect. The authors have developed visualization methods to meet the above-mentioned requirements and evaluated the proposed methods with the in-vitro flow data set. The results clearly reveal that the proposed system enables the researchers of the modeling group to obtain the state of entire flow, such as the occurrence of turbulence.. ...

Purpose: The aim of the study was to investigate the sonographic characteristics of the varices of pancreas in portal hypertension.Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the sonographic findings, case records and other diagnostic procedures of 11 patients with clinical features of portal hypertension of different etiology, all having sonographical changes suggesting presence of the pancreatic varices. Size, echogenicity, margins, location and type of vascularity were analyzed. All patients underwent subsequent upper gastrointestinal endoscopy.Results: Gray-scale sonography demonstrated either anechoic oval lesions or tortuous tubular structures located in different parts of pancreas. The vascular nature of the structures was proven by detection of blood flow on color Doppler and power Doppler sonography and categorized as venous by means of pulsed Doppler sonography. CT revealed pancreatic varices in 9 patients. Of the 11 subjects with upper gastrointestinal endoscopy performed, 9 had esophageal

Background and Purpose: We examined the relationship between clot maturation and associated echogenicity obtained by intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) on time required to aspirate clots by aspiration thrombectomy device (Penumbra system) in vitro settings.. Methods: Clots were formed by 3ml citrate-anticoagulated human venous blood was initiated by recalcification with CaCl2 86 μl/3ml and 5U/ml of thrombin. The clots were matured in saline at room temperature at different time period (2h, 6h, 24h, 48h, 72h) and 10mm of clots in length were transferred into silicone vessels 3mm in diameter with saline. Subsequently, Penumbra perfusion catheter was used proximal to the clot after acquiring the ultrasound image by IVUS. The time to remove clots was defined by the time interval between initiating aspiration and the time when all the clots were aspirated. Analysis of echogenicity on images acquired by IVUS was performed with the image analysis software using the histogram function. The gray scale ...

In indeterminate thyroid nodules, evidence of thick post-microcystic reflection on ultrasound was found to be associated with malignant nodules.
Thrombolysis with intravenous(iv) tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) is the only effective and approved therapy for acute ischemic stroke. The most frequent cause of ischemic stroke is thrombosis of the middle cerebral artery (MCA). Preliminary in vitro, animal and human studies suggest that ultrasound accelerates thrombolysis induced by t-PA, and recanalization of acute MCA occlusion due to thrombolysis is an independent predictor of good clinical outcome. Thus, insonation of an occluded MCA through the temporal bone in stroke patients who are treated with iv t-PA might enhance recanalization and improve clinical outcome. The present prospective, randomized, controlled multicenter pilot study will investigate the safety and efficacy of continuous 1-hour insonation of the occluded MCA with 2 MHz transcranial color duplex sonography in patients with ischemic stroke treated with iv t-PA within 3 hours after symptom onset. It is planned to randomize 400 patients in 6 Swiss centers during an ...
PDUS signals |1 are rarely seen in normal synovial joints. GSUS synovitis, but not PDUS, may reflect age-related joint changes. PDUS correlated with VEGF, providing further evidence of a central role for VEGF in synovial neo-angiogenesis.
Ultrasonography revealed a single fetus. Lie was transverse. The biparietel diameter was 74mm and femur length being 51mm both corresponding to a 28 weeks Gestation. Abdominal circumference (240mm) and head circumference (268mm) both corresponded to a 28 weeks period of gestation. There was no craniospinal anomaly. Fetal stomach, kidneys and bladder were normal and the umbilical cord was trivascular. Fetal cardiac four chamber view was normal and there was no pleural effusion or ascites. Polyhydramnios was present. The placenta was on the right lateral wall, was not low lying and was grade II. A well-defined oval echogenic mass measuring 7.5 x 6 cm having echogenicity different from the rest of placenta with focal area of peripheral hypoechogenicity was noted in the central part of the placenta close to the insertion of the umbilical cord causing a lobulated bulge on its fetal side. On color Doppler imaging a central feeding vessel was seen which showed a branching pattern and on pulsed Doppler ...

Scrotal U/S with Doppler Flow The left scrotal sac is enlarged and is filled with a complex partially fluid, partially solid, encapsulated structure. 3.0 x 2.4-2.8 cm. Inside the capsule, complex fluid is present as well as echogenic solid, tissue without evidence of blood flow on color Doppler. This solid appearing tissue is partially calcified.
Sonography can be enhanced with Doppler measurements, which employ the Doppler effect to assess whether structures (usually blood) are moving towards or away from the probe, and its relative velocity. By calculating the frequency shift of a particular sample volume, for example a jet of blood flow over a heart valve, its speed and direction can be determined and visualised. This is particularly useful in cardiovascular studies (sonography of the vasculature system and heart) and essential in many areas such as determining reverse blood flow in the liver vasculature in portal hypertension. The Doppler information is displayed graphically using spectral Doppler, or as an image using color Doppler (directional Doppler) or power Doppler (non directional Doppler). This Doppler shift falls in the audible range and is often presented audibly using stereo speakers: this produces a very distinctive, although synthetic, pulsing sound. Strictly speaking, most modern sonographic machines do not use the ...

N2 - Background: Among numerous modalities applied for evaluation of kidney diseases, Doppler ultrasonography (DU) provides information about the hemodynamic status of the kidneys. Meanwhile, the variability in DU parameters of the right and left kidney is a matter of controversy. The aim of this study was to determine whether any difference exists between the DU indices of the right and left kidney. Methods: Retrospectively, we collected DU findings of 25 healthy potential renal transplant donors. All donors underwent renal DU and multidetector computed tomographic angiography before donor nephrectomy. DU indices, including peak systolic volume (PSV), resistive ...

Preparative chromatography detectors can have very limited specifications, compared with their analytical counterparts. They need not be particularly sensitive (in fact too great a sensitivity is a distinct disadvantage) as the sample size and the eluent solute concentrations are very large. Preparative chromatography detectors can have large sensor volumes and, as the detector is required only to monitor the separation, they need not have a linear response. They do need to tolerate high flow rates and thus, must have low flow impedance. Analytical detectors can be used for preparative purposes but a portion is usually split from the column eluent, diluted with more mobile phase and then passed through the detector. In practice this becomes a rather clumsy procedure. The most commonly used detector in preparative GC is the thermal conductivity detector (hot wire detector). Even this detector, however, is often too sensitive and has too high a flow impedance. Under such circumstances, the ...
Ultrasound imaging has been used extensively to detect abnormalities of the non-lactating breast. In contrast, the use of ultrasound for the investigation of pathology of the lactating breast is limited. Recent studies have re-examined the anatomy of the lactating breast highlighting features unique to this phase of breast development. These features should be taken into consideration along with knowledge of common lactation pathologies in order to make an accurate diagnosis when examining the lactating breast. Scanning techniques and ultrasound appearances of the normal lactating breast will be contrasted to those of the non-lactating breast. In addition ultrasound characteristics of common pathologies encountered during lactation will be described.
I had a psa of 4.4 in 1999 and steadily increasing psa every 3-6 months before reaching 40 in 5-08.Free psa ranged from 16 to 10%. I had biopsies every year, 13 total in all. I saw 5 different doctors, all urologists or urological oncologists at Long Beach, UCLA, UCSF and UCI and had an MRIS at UCSF in 2007. All tests were negative and I was told that because of all the biopsies I most likely didnt have PC, but to keep getting biopsies every year.. in Oct 08 my 13th biopsy of 25 cores indicated 2 positive cores, gleason 3+3 less that 5% in 2 cores. Doc recommended surgery.. 2nd opinion from a prostate oncologist, referred by my wifes oncologists said cancer found wis indolant and statistacally insignificant, but PSA histor was a major concern and ordered a few more tests.. Color Doppler ultrasound with targeted biopsy found a transition zone tumor 18mmX16mm, gleason 3+4 and 4+3. CT and bone scans clear, but Doc thinks that there may be lymph node involvement (30% chance) because of my high ...
Ultrasound criteria correlate with the size, the location, the presence of ascites, the presences of cysts and solid areas in the same cyst, the sheer cyst or solid appearance, the thick walls, etc. Besides, the transvaginal Doppler ultrasound with colour flow imaging is a modern examination that offers significant assistance in determining blood flow in the cyst area. From the biochemical test, the C1-125 indicator is useful but has higher sensitivity and specificity for post-menopausal women.. Laparoscopic criteria for benign findings (Mage G, 1987) correlate with the thickness of the wall, the vascularisation of the cyst, the colour of the fluid contents, the length of the same connection of the ovary and the appearance of the internal wall of the cyst. According to the pre-operative and peri-operative assessment of the cyst, laparoscopic surgery is performed. Special care is taken in the removal of the entire capsule (shell) of the cyst without it rupturing, as well as in the maintenance of ...
For many hemodynamically significant or catastrophic valvular lesions good quality 2D and colour doppler evaluation are often sufficient to make the diagnosis. Acute left-sided valvular disease (particularly acute AR and acute MR) can lead to hemodynamic collapse and further deterioration despite standard therapies for shock (i.e. vasopressors) and patients with such potential valvulopathy should be evaluated urgently. The mainstay of POCUS assessment of valvular disease is with 2D echocardiography and colour doppler. Two-dimensional echocardiography should assess for valvular prolapse, flail, perforations, restriction/stenosis/calcification and associated structural changes (chamber dilation). Colour doppler is used to evaluate valvular function as turbulent flow and regurgitation cannot be visualized without it. The following tables include some of the basic quantitative measures of valvular disease which may be used to add confidence for clinical presentations based on 2D and colour doppler. ...

Ultrasound imaging uses a transducer or probe to generate sound waves and produce pictures of the bodys internal structures. It does not use ionizing radiation, has no known harmful effects, and provides a clear picture of soft tissues that dont show up well on x-ray images. Ultrasound is often used to help diagnose unexplained pain, swelling and infection. It may also be used to provide imaging guidance to needle biopsies or to see and evaluate conditions related to blood flow. Its also the preferred imaging method for monitoring a pregnant woman and her unborn child ...
