Peretianu Dan , Staicu Daniela Cristea , Carsote Mara

Objectives: The study of the real indications for thyroid ultrasound and in which pathological conditions the echography is of real use and not for abuse.Material and methods: In the last 10 years, over 13 000 echographies were performed in 5136 consecutive patients for ‘thyroid disturbances’. In a previous paper we described 7 echographic patterns for thyroid ultrasound (9th ECE). The diagnosis of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT) was consider...

Introduction: Left hepatic lobe volume (LHLV) has been associated with hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance in obese women.Aim: To study the correlation between LHLV and body weight, regardless the weight and gender of the patient.Subjects and methods: The left hepatic lobe was evaluated with an echographic probe of 3.5 MHz. The LHLV (cm3) was calculated with the formula: antero-posterior diameter (length)×longit...
