Clinicas Hospital, Department of Radiology, School of Medicine, University of São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil

Clinical History:

A 36-year-old male with a history of intermittent pain in his right testicle was admitted to the emergency radiology ward with a fast enlarging testicle, without previous trauma.  He had also lost weight. Physical examination revealed an enlarged firm testicle without pain on the right side and a normal left testicle. The patient had no fever, no trauma, no chronic disease and denied any sexually transmitted diseases.  After some time the patient remembered that 6 years previously he had had leukemia and had underwent a bone marrow transplant.

Ultrasound:

B Mode US in the supine position showed a heterogeneous, enlarged testicle (Figure 1, 2 and 3). Color Doppler showed that the right testicle had an increased vascular pattern (Figure 4, 5 and 6).

For many sonographers, physicians, and other medical professionals performing ultrasound scans, pain is a daily reality.  Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSD) limit their ability to live productive lives and care for their patients.
During this virtual Solution Hack-a-Thon Challenge, you and your team will be empowered to explore, discuss, debate and brainstorm on ways to eliminate WRMSD once and for all.

Each member of the team with the winning solution will receive a $550 USD cash prize and will be invited to participate in the upcoming 2021 WRMSD Design Summit.

Registration and Timeline:

Winner Selection Criteria, Rules & Fine Print:

  • Participation is open to residents/students of the US and Canada.
  • Participants will commit to no more than 10 hours and will participate online.
  • Each team will submit one presentation on their solution. Solutions cannot eliminate the need for an actual sonographer.  Presentations should not exceed 5 to 7 minutes in length.
  • Judges will be comprised of representatives from members of the WRMSD GC Alliance and industry-related partners.  Presentations will be judged for innovation, sustainability, scalability.
  • Each selected participant will receive a $25 USD VISA gift card
