The normal appendix is a wall layered blind-ending, tubular structure that arises from the variably located caecum. The normal appendix visualized without compression can be best seen within free fluid. The arrow indicates the orifice of the appendix.

Video Captions

Benign neuroendocrine pancreatic neoplasia(pNET). B-mode (video 1) and contrast enhanced ultrasound using low mechanical index technique (video 2) are shown (Hitachi Ascendus).

Take Home Message

Endoscopic ultrasound is the method of choice to diagnose and exclude small pancreatic neoplasia. Due to the high spatial resolution provided by EUS small cystic and necrotic areas are easily identified. Typical endosonographic features of pNETs are hypoechogenicity and necrotic areas in B‑mode and arterial hyperenhancement after injection of ultrasound contrast agents.

Dear colleagues,

 

We cordially invite you to Euroson 2020 taking place in Bergen, the gateway to the fjords and mountains of Norway. Bergen is a historic city
beautifully located along the western coastline with a pulsating harbor surrounded by 7 mountains.
The venue of the congress is Grieghallen, named after Norway’s famous composer Edvard Grieg, who was born and lived in Bergen. The congress is organized by the National Centre for Ultrasound in Gastroenterology and Norwegian Society for Diagnostic Ultrasound (NFUD), and this event will be NFUD’s 44th conference.

Euroson 2020 is arranged in collaboration with the Danish (DUDS) and Swedish (SFMU) ultrasound societies, and SonoScandinavia.

Video 1 and 2

The contrast enhancement of the heart and lung after intravenous injection follows certain anatomical rules. First the right atrium (video 1, RA), right ventricle (video 1, RV), pulmonary artery, lung parenchyma (video 2, LUNG) and pulmonary veins are enhancing followed by the left atrium (video 1, LA), left ventricle (video 1, LV), coronary arteries & myocardium (video 1, MYO), aorta (video 2, AORTA), bronchial arteries (BA) and the systemic vessels (video 2 including hepatic arteries, portal venous system and liver parenchyma). In other words the venous blood from the heart to the lung parenchyma is featured, which is mandatory for the gaseous exchange. Thereafter, the systemic arterial vascular system is enhancing. In the lung the analysis of the dual blood supply allows the differentiation of lung emboli (pulmonary artery vascular supply followed by pulmonary vein washout) and neoplasia (bronchial artery vascular supply followed by bronchial vein washout). In the liver the dual blood supply allows the differentiation of malignant and benign focal liver lesion. Herewith we demonstrate the contrast enhanced ultrasound enhancement step by step in real-time [1, see also EFSUMB Case of the Month “Amyloidosis”, www.efsumb.org].

Take Home Message

The videos demonstrate the contrast phases in the lung, heart, aorta, bronchial arteries and liver in real-time.

In Memoriam: Michel Claudon (1953 – 2018)

In Memoriam: Michel Claudon (1953 – 2018)

by Admin

HASSEN A. GHARBI,*,1 NICOLAS GRENIER,y,2 and SEUNG HYUP KIMz,3
* University of Tunis, Tunisia;
y Hospital Pellegrin, Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Bordeaux, France; and z Seoul National University Hospital, Seoul, Korea

1. Professor of Radiology and Biophysics, Past President of the World Federation of Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology.

2. Professor of Radiology, Chief of Adult Radiology
3. Professor of Radiology, President Elect of the World Federation of Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology.



Michel Claudon, Professor of Radiology and medical imaging at the University of Lorraine, in Nancy, France, passed away on November 20, 2018, at the age of 65, after a spirited battle against cancer, against which he fought courageously for several months.

Michel was born on July 7, 1953 and raised in Pont- a-Mousson, France. His roots were in Lorraine, in eastern France. He grew up and married his wife, Claire Lise in Nancy, France and they had three girls, Lucile, 34 years old, married in 2017, granddaughter Leopoldine born in September 2018, Anne Sophie, 32 years old, and Aurore, 28 years old, who was engaged in November 2018.
Appointed Professor of Radiology in 1989, Michel spent his entire career as Head of Department of Pediatric Radiology, then of Adult Radiology at Hospital Brabois, Vandoeuvre-les-Nancy. He became president of the medical council of his hospital between 2011 and 2017 and occupied the position of President of the National Conference of Presidents of Medical Councils thereafter.
Michel Claudon was a passionate radiologist, an out- standing teacher, and a recognized researcher in the clinical ultrasound fields of genitourinary and pediatric radiology.
During all these years, he was driven by an acute sense of responsibility, not by the thirst for power, but by the pro- found conviction that he had to make a contribution for the development of his profession. He led all his fights, even the last one, with courage, determination and combativeness.
He was a man with a curious mind, a happy spirit, an epicurean, faithful in friendship, who carried great and sincere ambitions for his medical profession and radiology specialty. 

He was an ardent defender of all aspects and developments in ultrasound. This is why he became successively President of the French-speaking Society for the Application of Ultrasound to Medicine and Biology (SFAUMB), of the European Federation of Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (EFSUMB) and finally of the World Federation of Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (WFUMB). But he also got involved in urogenital radiology and became President of the French Society of Urogenital Imaging, Societe Franc ̧aise l’imagerie Urogenitale(SIGU),then of the European Society of Urogenital Radiology (ESUR). He promoted and participated in the development of ultrasound in medicine in many countries, structuring teaching and research directions.

He was particularly interested in promoting radiology in developing countries, specifically in Yemen. He worked hard with the help of Dr .Yvette Viallard, a radiologist and President of the Association Medicale Franco Yemenite.

Michel spent several missions in Sana’a and Taiz, Yemen. He was proud to speak Arabic, for the promotion of the good use of the radiological tools. We had the chance to share teaching courses with him in Sana’a.
Michel Claudon will be long remembered and revered by those who worked under and with him. His contribution to the development of clinical radiology is enormous. His kindness, dedication, and constant curiosity made him a faithful friend to many radiologists and clinicians around the world.
Special thoughts for those who survive him, his wife Claire Lise, his parents Jean and Simone, his three girls Lucile, Anne Sophie, Aurore, and his granddaughter Leopoldine.

Video and Figure 1

SPN which occurs in young women in the third decade of life has well-defined borders and variable central areas with cystic degeneration, necrosis, or hemorrhage (Figure 1a). Contrast enhanced EUS reveals  in SPN  hypoenhancement in the the arterial and venous phase (Video 1). In contrast, NETs are hyperenhancing lesions. Elastography shows stiffer tissue compared to the surrounding (Figure 1b). Biopsy and immunohistochemical staining were performed for final diagnosis.

Take Home Message

Neuroendocrine tumor (NET) and solid-pseudopapillary neoplasm (SPN) are two types of pancreatic tumor that were sometimes difficult to differentiate. Biopsy and immunohistochemical analysis obtained  by a histological needle biopsy plays a crucial role in differentiating these two tumor types, E-cadherin, chromogranin A, and β-catenin representing the most useful markers which should be employed for differentiating between NET and SPN.

This was a 45-year old man with severe proteinuria. Color Doppler US of the left renal vein (LRV) in transverse plane shows severe compression between abdominal aorta and superior mesenteric artery and bright-colored jetting flow in the inferior vena cava. Measured peak flow velocity was approximately 3 meters per second which is much higher than normal velocity of 40 to 50 cm/sec.
