The role of ultrasound in the assessment and treatment of abdominal metastases from testicular tumours

Clinical Radiology
C J TyrrellM J Peckham


The para-aortic region has been investigated with ultrasound in 95 patients with testicular teratoma seen in the testicular tumour unit between 1973 and 1976. The liver was assessed in 110 patients. The technique has provided useful and reliable information. Para-aortic ultrasound can provide more information than existing diagnostic methods and is particularly useful for defining the volume of metastatic nodal masses. Its role should be regarded as complementary to that of lymphography. Ultrasonography is particularly useful to the radiotherapist since it can define the volume and limits of the tumour and thus influence choice of therapeutic approach and radiation planning technique. Ultrasound is also valuable in the assessment of response to treatment and in monitoring the patient during the subsequent follow-up period.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Rh Isoimmunization

Rh isoimmunization is a potentially preventable condition that occasionally is associated with significant perinatal morbidity or mortality. Discover the latest research on Rh Isoimmunization here.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
