the slice thickness is 2.5 mm. This provides an excellent look at the large and small bowel enhancement and vasculature, and also the solid organs. this patient has a good deal of intrabdominal fat, which separates and surrounds structures, helping to see/differentiate better than in a thinner patient The collecting system could be identified in all kidneys and its wall thickness varied between 0 (not visible) and 0.8 mm. Thickening of the wall ≥ 1mm is be considered as abnormal. Causes of wall thickening
the layers of the bladder wall and tumor staging based on depth of invasion. (See Table for T stage definitions.) Normal Anatomy of the Urinary Bladder The urinary bladder is primarily an extraperi-toneal structure, with peritoneum covering only the superior surface of the bladder (bladder dome). The orifices of the ureters at the uretero This keeps them from experiencing normal urine flow. Your doctor will typically diagnose bladder trabeculation by measuring the thickness of your bladder walls. Radiopaedia: Bladder. The Uterus. Uterine anatomy changes during pediatric life (, 1).The neonatal uterus is prominent (, Fig 1) under the influence of maternal and placental hormones (, 2 3).The cervix is larger than the fundus (fundus-to-cervix ratio = 1/2), the uterine length is approximately 3.5 cm, and the maximum thickness is approximately 1.4 cm; the endometrial lining is often echogenic 1) TRANS-ABDOMINALLY ON FULL BLADDER : Measured at 36-38 weeks. The arrows indicate where the LUS thickness is measured ---- the thinnest zone of the lower segment was identified visually at the midsagittal plane along the cervical canal. This area was magnified and the measurement was taken between the urinary bladder wall myometrium interface. Cardiac CT can be a more or less frequent examination faced in daily practice also depending on the institution and the CT scanner technology available. With technological advances and improved dose reduction techniques in the last decade, cardiac CT has become increasingly popular. What is presented below is a basic approach for how to organize findings within a radiological report of a.
Normal bowel wall Acceptable bowel wall thickness values on CT strongly depend on the degree of bowel distension and vary widely in the literature. Some agreement, however, exists that the small bowel wall should not exceed 3 mm despite luminal distention, and the colonic wall can vary from 1 to 2 mm when the lumen is well distended to 5 mm. The normal uterus assumes a number of positions, which may vary, depending on the degree of distention of the urinary bladder. The positions are described in relation to the angle of the long axis of the uterine body to the long axis of the cervix (flexion) and the long axis of the uterus to the long axis of the vagina (version) The MRI mid- and forefoot protocol encompasses a set of MRI sequences for routine assessment of the mid- and forefoot.. Note: This article aims to frame a general concept of an MRI protocol for the assessment of the fore- and midfoot. Protocol specifics will vary depending on MRI scanner type, specific hardware and software, radiologist and perhaps referrer preference, patient factors e.g.
Introduction. Cesarean delivery is the most commonly performed major abdominal operation in women. The rate varies between low-income and affluent countries, with global estimates of 15% worldwide, ranging from a low of 3.5% in Africa, to 33% in the United States, to a high of 43.9% in Brazil (1-3).Although significant acute complications are uncommon, given the increasing prevalence of the. Spine radiography is utilized in both trauma and general imaging. Spine radiography explores the cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and sacral regions. In more specialized departments, full-length spine radiography via projectional, CT, or slit-beam digital radiography is still frequently utilized in the diagnosis and management of scoliosis .. In imaging tests of young females who. A third hyperechoic layer is produced by the submucosa and the muscularis propria interface. The muscularis propria is seen as a fourth hypoechoic layer. Finally, the marginal interface to the serosa is seen as the fifth small hyperechoic layer. The average thickness of the normal gut wall is 2-4 mm
The normal gallbladder is subjacent to the inferior surface of the liver in the plane of the interlobar fissure (Fig. 1A, 1B).However, various anomalous positions of the gallbladder have been reported, including inferior to the left hepatic lobe and intrahepatic, transverse, and retrohepatic .A left-sided gallbladder may be seen in situs inversus, or even, in extremely rare cases, in normal. The so called bladder flap hematoma is located in the space between urinary bladder and lower uterine segment and its spread is limited by the overlying peritoneum [3, 4].Small bladder flap hematoma can occur in up to 50% of the patients undergoing cesarean delivery with a low transverse incision and is considered a normal finding if < 4 cm 
BLADDER. Begin in transverse with a slight caudal angle. Sweep trough the bladder for any structural defects or focal wall thickening. Apply colour/power doppler to look for ureteric jets. This may require patience. Confirm there are 2 and they are reasonably symmetrical with no residual distal ureteric dilatation or ureteroceles. Common Patholog The CT abdomen-pelvis protocol serves as an outline for an examination of the whole abdomen including the pelvis.It is one of the most common CT protocols for any clinical questions related to the abdomen and/or in routine and emergencies. It forms also an integral part of trauma and oncologic staging protocols and can be conducted as part of other scans such as CT chest-abdomen-pelvis or can. Glenohumeral joint injections (often referred to as shoulder injections ) are performed as part of a number of therapeutic and imaging procedures using a variety of approaches and modalities. The underlying principles shared by all techniques are.. Measure the anterior gallbladder wall thickness. Orient your calipers as pictured and measure the anterior gallbladder wall thickness. The normal anterior gallbladder wall thickness is <3mm; Editor's note: some resources use <5mm thickness to increase the specificity. Remember to use your hospital's guidelines when measuring
Bladder masses are generally echogenic, irregularly shaped, and are found either mounted on the bladder wall or in areas of irregularly increased bladder wall thickness. The majority of bladder masses are from transitional cell carcinoma. However, other causes include bladder diverticulitis, congenital outpouching of the bladder wall, and. The MRI finger protocol encompasses a set of MRI sequences for the routine assessment of the finger pathology..

In the course of our diagnostic interpretations of computed tomography (CT) examinations, we have observed considerable fat in the wall of the urinary bladder of some patients as revealed on CT scans (index cases). We sought to determine the frequency and significance of such findings in routine scans
The view is best for evaluating the glenohumeral joint for dislocations and trauma to the glenoid of the scapula; this projection can be used as a replacement to the lateral scapula view in trauma, however, interpretation is difficult. The angle of the beam means it is tangential to the anterior-inferior glenoid rim (great for Bankart fractures. Typically, the placenta is discoid in shape. The placenta normally lies along the anterior or posterior wall of the uterus and may extend to the lateral wall with increasing gestational age 1. The placenta at term weighs ~470 g and measures ~22 cm in diameter with a thickness of 2.0-2.5 cm 3
Gross anatomy. The uterus has an inverted pear shape. In the adult, it measures about 7.5 cm in length, 5 cm wide at its upper part, and nearly 2.5 cm in thickness. It weighs approximately 30-40 grams. The uterus is divisible into two portions: body and cervix . About midway between the apex and base, is a slight constriction known as the isthmus If the vessel injury is within 2 cm of the organ parenchyma, refer to specific organ injury scale.

A normal gallbladder can exhibit a thickened wall of 4-5mm due to contraction alone. Typically this will occur in the setting of a lower-than-normal gallbladder volume. For the rest, hypoalbuminemia is a major culprit in gallbladder wall thickening; alone or as a secondary mechanism in patients with cirrhosis, heart failure or renal disease Indications. A CT stroke protocol is obtained in the emergency setting to rapidly diagnose and quantify patients presenting with probable ischemic strokes and to enable appropriate urgent management (e.g. endovascular clot retrieval or intravenous thrombolysis). In most centers, CT is favored over MRI in the ultra-acute setting due to time and access constraints, despite acknowledging that MRI.

Greater femoral trochanteric bursa injections under ultrasound-guidance ensures the injectate is accurately given into the bursa. The greater trochanteric bursa is the largest of the bursae surrounding the proximal femur, with the others including the subgluteus minimus and subgluteus medius bursae, which can also be targeted Calcification: womb: Small calcified areas are not uncommon in the wall of the uterus. If this was an ultrasound finding, it could also represent an end on picture of a blood vessel, which has calcium deposits in the wall.

In the lungs, emphysema involves enlargement of the distal airspaces, and is a major feature of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Pneumoperitoneum (or peritoneal emphysema) is air or gas in the abdominal cavity, and is most commonly caused by a perforated abdominal organ Objectives: To assess the precision of five different calculation methods in real-time bladder volume measurement. Material and methods: Bladders from 10 medical staff volunteers were examined. Two examinations of each subject were performed by one examiner using the same ultrasound scannet Five different calculation algorithms were used on the frozen ultrasound pictures: the prolate ellipsoid.
Indications. The PA view of the sternoclavicular joint is often requested in the context of significant trauma that can result in sternoclavicular joint dislocation or medial end clavicular fractures. Furthermore, this projection can be requested when following up on already known sternoclavicular injuries in the setting of outpatient appointments The normal small-bowel wall is thin, measuring between 1 and 2 mm when the lumen is well distended . However, the thickness of the normal small-bowel wall varies slightly depending on the degree of luminal distention. As a result, different criteria have been used to diagnose small-bowel wall thickening [1,2,3,4,5,6].

In Transverse, the thin rim of Muscle is typical of a normal Pylorus. A 2nd helpful finding, is that the hypertrophied pylorus is generally displaced to lie subjacent to the gallbladder. This is an indicator only and care must be taken that a full stomach is not the cause for the displaced pylorus Normal Uterine Anatomy. The normal uterus is a pear-shaped organ located in the midpelvis, posterior to the urinary bladder and anterior to the rectum. The uterine divisions include the cervix, body, and fundus.

Zoom the image to assess and measure the endometrial thickness
The patient will be asked to void partially before the dynamic examination in order to prevent a distended urinary bladder from obscuring the pelvic structures and masking pelvic organ prolapse. Maintaining a small amount of urine in the urinary bladder improves visualization of the bladder and anterior vaginal wall prolapse Spectral Doppler demonstrates normal RI values (less than 0.70) in most of the prerenal ARF patients, while RI indices are usually above 0.70 in intrinsic renal ARF cases. Clinical crush syndrome as a consequence of rhabdomyolysis is a typical example of renal disease with significant and reversible increase of RI and PI values (Fig. 6.9 ) The normal wall of the bladder is smooth and should be regular and uniform in thickness (typically 2-3 mm in fully distended bladder) not exceeding 6 mm in adults. and its size, position and relations vary according to the amount of fluid it contains
Step 2: Obtain Transverse View of Uterus. Rotate the probe 90 degrees counterclockwise (toward the patient's right, or the 9 o'clock position) to obtain a good view of the bladder, myometrium, and endometrium of the uterus. Tilt/Fan superiorly and inferiorly to view then entire uterus in the transverse view Normal: a continuous, single bell-shaped curve with urine volume > 200 mL (over 15-30 seconds) and at a rate > 15 mL/sec Abnormal : an abnormal curve or urine volume at a rate 15 mL/sec (a urine volume 150 mL increases the risk of an inaccurate assessment When empty, the bladder's muscle wall becomes thicker and the entire bladder becomes firm. As the ureters — two tubes that expel urine from the kidneys to the bladder — fill the bladder, the. The normal size of uterus at this time is 7.6cm x 4.5cm x 3cm (length, width, thickness). The volume keeps changing depending on the menstrual cycle from 75 cc to 200 cc. Generally, the normal size of the uterus is around the size of the fist of the woman, and weighs around 100 - 200 grams Normal results for Nuchal Translucency. The normal amount of fluid found at the back of the fetal neck during an ultrasound procedure signifies that the baby is unlikely to develop Down syndrome or any other genetic problems. Normal measurement at 11 weeks age of gestation is up to 2mm. Normal measurement at 13 weeks, 6 days age of gestation is.
Biliary Colic. Biliary colic occurs when the gallbladder neck becomes impacted by a gallstone.There is no inflammatory response, yet the contraction of the gallbladder against the occluded neck will result in pain. The pain is typically sudden, dull, and colicky in nature. It is often focused in the right upper quadrant although it may radiate to the epigastrium and/or back Renal Ultrasound/ Renal artery Ultrasound. Multiple sonographic images of the kidneys and bladder were assessed for gray scale appearance and color doppler flow. The right kidney measures ____cm in length (10-13 is normal in adults) with a cortical thickness of ____cm (> 1 is normal). It is normal in echotexture and demonstrates no evidence of. Diffuse Adenomyomatosis • Diffuse type is termed if it causes thickness in the gallbladder wall -Ozgonul, A., Bitiren, M., Guldur, M. E., Sogut, O., & Yilmaz, L. E. (2010). 10. Fundus Adenomyomatosis • Fundal type is defined if the lesion is localized on the base of the gallbladder through the lumen in a hemispheric shape The finding of a thin rim of pericardial fluid (< 2 mm) during routine prenatal ultrasound is not uncommon, being observed in more than 40-50% of normal fetuses , particularly when the ultrasound beam is perpendicular to the ventricular wall and pericardial surface. However, this has no clinical significance and is not considered as PE Single umbilical artery is found in 6,1-11,3% of infants with chromosomal anomalies, mainly trisomies 18 and 13 5,6.It is rarely a finding of other autosomal trisomies or sex chromosome aneuploidy.
