Simulation-Based Training of Ultrasound-Guided Procedures in Radiology – A Systematic Review

Niklas Kahr Rasmussen et al.
This systematic review was conducted in accordance with the PRISMA statement. Pubmed, Embase, Web of Science, and the Cochrane Library were searched for studies assessing procedural competence after SBT. Two authors independently reviewed all studies and extracted data. Risk of bias was assessed using the Cochrane tool for randomized studies (RoB) and non-randomized studies (ROBINS-I). Quality of evidence was assessed using the GRADE approach.

Vascularization of Primary, Peripheral Lung Carcinoma in CEUS – A Retrospective Study (n = 89 Patients)

Hajo Findeisen et al.

From April 2004 until September 2015, n = 89 patients with peripheral lung carcinoma were investigated by B-mode US and CEUS. The extent (EE: hypoechoic, hyperechoic), homogeneity (HE: homogeneous, inhomogeneous) and time of enhancement (TE) have been defined. Early pulmonary-arterial enhancement (PA) before contrast floating to the thoracic wall was differentiated from simultaneous or delayed bronchial-arterial enhancement (BA). CEUS parameters were compared by B-mode US and histology.


Good Agreement Between Transabdominal and Endoscopic Ultrasound of the Pancreas in Chronic Pancreatitis

Trond Engjom et al.

In this observational cohort study performed in a tertiary care center, US and EUS were performed in 110 patients referred for suspected CP. Based on the Mayo score, 52 patients were diagnosed with CP. The sonographic findings obtained by both methods were registered. The number of criteria was counted and scored according to the Rosemont score.
