    Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is a combination of endoscopy and intraluminal ultrasonography. EUS also enables ultrasonographic images of high resolution to be obtained. However, whether a lesion is malignant or benign cannot be diagnosed solely from the findings of EUS. Endoscopic...

    Fibromatosis colli is rare, but is the most common cause of congenital torticollis. We describe, using two case reports as an example, how this condition can be diagnosed, by careful clinical history taking and using ultrasound as the imaging tool. Prompt detection with ultrasound can avoid more...

    We report three cases of portal venous gas detected on sonography without any portal abnormality on CT. In such a situation portal gas could correspond to a tiny amount of intraluminal gas after blunt abdominal trauma or, in contrast, to large or very large quantities of high blood-solubility...

    A key problem in the practical use of high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) as a tool for cancer treatment is the non-invasive characterization of the regions of tissue that have been successfully necrosed. Previously, we proposed an approach to image guidance based on the use of echo data...

    Background: Dissection of the cervical and cerebral arteries represents the leading cause of non-atherosclerotic stroke in young adults. The diagnosis can be difficult as the presentation may be variable. The ultrasound (US) examination is the first diagnostic procedure, because is non invasive...
