A female with an acute onset of severe pain in the lower abdomen

Dr. Serghei Puiu, Dr, PhD

Department of Radiology and Imaging, State University of Medicine and Pharmacy “Nicoale Testemitanu”, Chisinau, Republic of Moldova

Clinical History:

A 47-year-old lady was referred to our department for a second opinion before surgery regarding an ovarian mass suspect of an ovarian tumour. She had an acute onset of severe pain in the lower right abdominal quadrant one week previously, which disappeared spontaneously. When she presented in our department, she had no pain or fever. Blood tests, including tumour markers, were normal.

Transabdominal and transvaginal ultrasound scans were performed. They showed an enlarged, but well-defined right ovary, appearing as a mass (Fig. 1-2). The stroma was heterogeneous due to edema displacing the follicles peripherally (Fig. 3). An echogenic thickened fallopian tube seemed to wrap the enlarged ovary (Fig. 4 a-c). The ovarian arterial and venous flow was preserved (Fig. 5 a-b). A small fluid collection in the Douglas pouch and around the ovary was seen. There was a slight pain on transducer touch.

Figure 1. Enlarged right ovary mimicking a solid adnexal mass.
Figure 2. Enlargement (up to 139 cm3) of the right ovary.
Figure 3. Peripherally located ovarian follicles, displaced by the ovarian stromal edema. Note the heterogeneous appearance of the ovarian stroma.
Figures 4 a-c. Thickened fallopian tube surrounding the enlarged ovarian mass. Small anechoic fluid collection around the ovary. Compare the swollen right tube (thick arrow) and normal appearance of the left tube (thin arrow).
Figures 5 a-b. Present ovarian arterial and venous flow, showing typical Doppler patterns.
Figure 6 a-c. Normal appearance and vascular flow of the right ovary two months later. The right fallopian tube is difficult to visualize.

Webinar: WFUMB ‘Ultrasound, the Best’ Cases

Webinar: WFUMB ‘Ultrasound, the Best’ Cases

by Admin

WFUMB Webinar: WFUMB ‘Ultrasound, the Best’ Cases

Took place on Tuesday, September 15, 2020 2:30 PM – 4:30 PM CEST

The webinar consisted of Introduction, 3 lectures & summary, with Q&A’s and feedback.

One of the important directions WFUMB is pursuing is to promote the best use of ultrasound. This webinar is a part of this campaign with a slogan of “Ultrasound, the Best’.

In this 2-hours webinar, you will see the ‘Ultrasound, the Best’ cases in the liver, gastrointestinal tract, and urinary tract. Odd Helge GILJA (Chair of WFUMB education committee), Christoph DIETRICH (Chair of WFUMB publication committee), and Seung KIM (President of WFUMB) will present cases where ultrasound played excellent problem-solving roles in the diagnosis and management of the patients, sometimes even much better than CT or MRI did. I hope this webinar may be enjoyable and useful for all participants. I believe many of you also have ‘Ultrasound, the Best’ cases. WFUMB invites you to participate in this campaign by submitting your cases through the WFUMB website. You can find submitting guidelines and slide templates at the WFUMB website.

Presentations for this webinar are below …

Introduction - Seung Kim

Cases in the Urinary Tract - Seung Kim

Cases in the Liver - Odd Helge Gilja

Cases in the GI Tract - Christoph F Dietrich

Concluding Q & A Session - All speakers
