Game Changer

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.

Breast Ultrasonography: Findings in Pediatric Patients

Sebastian Harth, Christopher Behrens, Fritz Christian Roller, Gerhard Ferdinand Peter Alzen, Gabriele Anja Krombach

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.

Kai Bürkel, Ursula Krämer, Mareike Möllers, Maria Karina Falkenberg, Walter Klockenbusch, Ralf Schmitz

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.

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).
