European Journal of Ultrasound – 3/2019
The case shown here, illustrates a fetus with a double aortic arch. This is in our opinion a condition, which is often difficult to differentiate froma simple right-sided aortic arch as both cases are detected in general with the visualization on 2D and color Doppler of the transverse aortic arch with its course to the right of the trachea. Only a subtle transducer movement could demonstrate whether the right aortic arch is bifurcating into two arches or not, a plane difficult to get reliably in such conditions. The use of STIC with color Doppler enables the spatial demonstration of the vessels of interest. Due to the patent ductus arteriosus prenatally, three arches are seen; the right aortic arch, the left aortic arch and the ductal arch.

Retrospective study of 119 cases with agenesis of ductus venosus diagnosed by prenatal ultrasound in two tertiary referral centers from 2006 to 2014. The type and location of the umbilical venous drainage site was noted. Charts were reviewed for associated structural or chromosomal anomalies, pregnancy outcome and postnatal course.

From 2012 to 2015, 158 out of 165 men with suspicion for PCa and with at least 1 negative biopsy of the prostate were included and underwent a multi-parametric 3 Tesla MRI and an MRI/US fusion-guided biopsy, consecutively. CEUS was conducted during biopsy with intravenous bolus application of 2.4 mL of SonoVue® (Bracco, Milan, Italy). In the latter CEUS clips were investigated using quantitative perfusion analysis software (VueBox, Bracco). The area of strongest enhancement within the MRI pre-located region was investigated and all available parameters from the quantification tool box were collected and analyzed for PCa and its further differentiation was based on the histopathological results.
