EFSUMB is producing a position paper on the role of handheld ultrasound devices which was presented in part at the ESR/EFSUMB Session at EUROSON 2017 Ljubljana, Slovenia together with an overview of the commercially available devices on the market. These miniature sized ultrasound equipment are the result of the rapid development of technology. It is now possible to use portable handheld scanners that can be operated on battery power and even transducers connected to a mobile phone, yet include conventional and often Doppler ultrasound features.

Kindliche Fehlbildungen und Schwangerschaftserkrankung „Präeklampsie" rechtzeitig erkennen 

Wird mein Kind gesund auf die Welt kommen? Diese Frage beschäftigt werdende Eltern. Antworten geben Ultraschalluntersuchungen schon im ersten Drittel der Schwangerschaft. Doch der Zugang dazu wird vielen erschwert – denn sie sind Selbstzahlerleistungen. Die Deutsche Gesellschaft für Ultraschall in der Medizin e. V. (DEGUM) weist auf die Wichtigkeit dieser Untersuchungen hin. Sie fordert zudem, dass die Feindiagnostik um die 20. Schwangerschaftswoche in die Regelversorgung aufgenommen wird. Diese könnte sicherstellen, ob mit dem Ungeborenen anatomisch alles in Ordnung ist.

Strokes in children are rare. Due to the special characteristics of the neonatal period, strokes occur more frequently in the perinatal period. With an incidence of 0.67/100 000 per year, hemorrhagic stroke in children is rarer than ischemic stroke. 43 % of all hemorrhagic strokes in children occur in the neonatal period with an incidence of 40.7/100 000 live births per year.

Most breast conditions in children and adolescents are benign. Breast malignancies in pediatric patients are exceedingly rare. Yet, variability in breast development is common. In pediatric patients a variety of diseases of the breast can be encountered, including disorders of growth, infections and masses. The purpose of this study was to analyze referral indications, imaging findings and diagnoses in breast sonography in a division of pediatric radiology.

New 3 D technologies like xMatrix probes promise superiority over conventional mechanical probes and may allow a more detailed and time-saving prenatal diagnosis. In a comparison study the authors evaluate fetal ears. The aim of the study was to compare the following aspects of both techniques: ultrasound detail resolution, raw data acquisition time (AT) and influence of covariates.

Liver stiffness (LS) has been shown to be of use in chronic liver disease patients but its utility in surgical judgment still needs to be proven. A decision-making approach was applied to evaluate whether LS measurement before surgery of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) can be useful in avoiding post-hepatectomy liver failure (PHLF).

Inhomogeneity of arterial wall thickness may be indicative of distal plaques. This study investigates the intra-subject association between relative spatial intima-media thickness (IMT) inhomogeneity of the common carotid artery (CCA) and the degree of stenosis of plaques in the internal carotid artery (ICA).

Lung Ultrasound Score (LUSS) is a useful tool for lung aeration assessment but presents two theoretical limitations. First, standard LUSS is based on longitudinal scan and detection of number/coalescence of B lines. In the longitudinal scan pleura visualization is limited by intercostal space width. Moreover, coalescence of B lines to define severe loss of aeration is not suitable for non-homogeneous lung pathologies where focal coalescence is possible. We therefore compared longitudinal vs. transversal scan and also cLUSS (standard coalescence-based LUSS) vs. qLUSS (quantitative LUSS based on % of involved pleura).

Malfunction of the peritoneal dialysis catheter is frequently caused by dislocation. The diagnostic approach is classically based on abdomen X-ray together with detailed case history and physical examination. Despite being rarely applied in clinical practice to evaluate catheter misplacement, ultrasound is a noninvasive, radiation-free technique that is potentially useful also to explore reasons for catheter malfunction. Consequently, we aimed to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of ultrasound to identify peritoneal catheter misplacement.

A Rare Case of Guyon's Canal Syndrome Caused by Cystic Adventitia Degeneration: High-Resolution Ultrasound Findings

Karl Otto Schneider, Orsolya Genzel-Boroviczény, Irene Schmid
 
Entrapment of the ulnar nerve inside the ulnar tunnel, which is also called Guyon's canal, is a well-known entity leading to pain, numbness and loss of function in the part of the hand supplied by the ulnar nerve. Space-occupying lesions in this area, such as ganglions, tendinitis, fracture, arthritis, nonspecific edema and thromboangitis, may cause the entrapment of the nerve, known as ulnar tunnel syndrome.
