Numerous studies in the 2nd and 3 rd trimesters have demonstrated that increased uterine artery indices are associated with more frequent occurrence of preeclampsia, fetal growth restriction (FGR), premature placental abruption, stillbirth, etc.. Measurement of the uterine arteries in "low-risk" cohorts between 18+ 0 and 24+ 0 gestational weeks resulted in sensitivities of 40–60 % with a false-positive rate around 10 %. However, the positive predictive values of 25 % for predicting FGR and/or preeclampsia were very low.

There are several methods that show high sensitivity for the detection of breast lesions, e. g. combined use of ultrasound and mammography can reach sensitivity ranging from 92.6 % to 94.4 % in different studies, but with limited specificity in the differentiation of malignant from benign lesions of up to 67.9 %. A similar tendency regarding contrast-enhanced MRI for breast lesions has been published, showing high sensitivity (94 %-100 %), especially for the assessment of tumor vascularity, but poor specificity regarding the differentiation of lesions (37–86 %).

A 29-year-old male graduate student was vaccinated with the recombinant adenoviral vector encoding the spike protein antigen of SARS-CoV-2 (Astra-Zeneca Vaxzevria). He developed upper abdominal pain without nausea or vomiting 14 days after vaccination. The abdominal symptoms were followed by headache two days later. He interpreted his symptoms as stress related to the finalization of his master's degree thesis. Two days later he noticed skin petechia and went to the emergency medical service.
