EFSUMB Guidelines and Recommendations of the Clinical Use of Liver Ultrasound Elastography, update 2017

Over the last decade EFSUMB has produced a series of guidelines and recommendations regarding different ultrasound applications. EFSUMB is working to promote high quality in ultrasound education and sustain excellent professional standards in training and practice. These guidelines are available on the EFSUMB website and are provided to guide both novice and expert users in performing examinations with ultrasound technology.

Bericht zur DEGUM-Pressekonferenz am 20. April in Berlin

Welche modernen Möglichkeiten bietet Ultraschall, um Magen-Darm-Erkrankungen erkennbar zu machen? Und welche wichtigen Hinweise liefert das bildgebende Verfahren bei rheumatischen Erkrankungen? Warum sollte die Sonografie bei der Diagnose von Nierensteinen das Mittel der ersten Wahl sein? Über diese und weitere Fragen diskutierten Experten im April 2017 auf einer Pressekonferenz der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Ultraschall in der Medizin e. V. (DEGUM) in Berlin.

Endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) has become established in the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms and shows potential benefits such as a low perioperative morbidity and a short hospitalization duration. This review describes the use of CEUS for follow-up after EVAR and describes the most common pathologies.

In October 2014 the EFSUMB formed a Gastrointestinal Ultrasound (GIUS) task force group to promote the use of GIUS in a clinical setting. The first part of this guideline gives an overview of the examination techniques for GIUS recommended by experts in the field. It also presents the current evidence for the interpretation of normal sonoanatomical and physiological features as examined with different ultrasound modalities.

The aim of this study was to compare the assessment of tenosynovitis by ultrasound (US) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) using the image fusion technique and to investigate whether US B-flow imaging (BFI) is an alternative to Doppler US when assessing tenosynovitis.

Case Report

Annular pancreas is a rare congenital anomaly in which the duodenum is encircled by a ring of pancreatic tissue. Contrast imaging of the upper gastrointestinal tract reveals duodenal obstruction. The definitive diagnosis is typically made only intraoperatively. There are only a few publications about the role of sonography in the diagnosis of an annular pancreas in cases of duodenal obstruction – most of them concerning the fetal period.

Pictoral Essay

Contrast Enhanced Ultrasound Liver Imaging Reporting and Data System (CEUS LI-RADS) for the diagnosis of Hepatocellular Carcinoma: a pictorial essay

Fabio Piscaglia, Stephanie R. Wilson, Andrej Lyshchik, David Cosgrove, Christoph F. Dietrich, Hyun-Jung Jang, Tae Kyoung Kim, Veronica Salvatore, Juergen Karl Willmann, Claude B. Sirlin, Yuko Kono
In 2014, the American College of Radiology identified an international working group of radiologists and hepatologists with expertise in CEUS, including many of the authors of the current article, to establish criteria for CEUS LI-RADS®, in collaboration with the LI-RADS Steering Committee. A key goal was to harmonize the interpretation of CEUS with that of CT and MR and to facilitate future integration of all imaging techniques for HCC diagnosis.
