The primary imaging technique in suspected venous occlusive disease has for many years been contrast venography. Recent studies have shown ultrasound with the addition of colour Doppler imaging to be a suitable alternative method in the diagnosis of lower limb venous thrombosis. We have applied these techniques to the upper limb venous system, and have(More)
We report two cases of renal vein thrombosis in renal transplants, both diagnosed by Doppler ultrasound. In both cases Doppler ultrasound showed complete absence of venous flow. In addition, the arterial signal showed a sharp systolic peak with a notch on the reverse diastolic component resembling an 'inverted M', a finding previously undescribed. This(More)
In a prospective study designed to differentiate pheochromocytoma from other forms of hypertension, urinary catecholamines were measured after sleep and clonidine administration in 12 patients with pheochromocytoma, 19 hypertensive patients in whom pheochromocytoma was suspected but later excluded, and 31 hypertensive patients in whom pheochromocytoma was(More)
The ultrasonic features of 162 bladder tumours are described. Comparing clinical staging by the TNM system and the ultrasonic appearances, there is a high degree of accuracy in staging by ultrasound. The use of this painless non-invasive technique is assessed and should be used in staging bladder tumours only in conjunction with other established methods,(More)
Sclerosis of the peritoneum, with encapsulation of the small bowel is one of the most serious complications of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), and carries a high mortality. The abnormalities seen on ultrasound are described for 14 patients and comprise increased small bowel peristalsis, tethering of the bowel to the posterior abdominal(More)
Ultrasound examinations of the pelvis and kidney have been carried out following 68 renal transplants. In 16 patients moderate sized or large perirenal or pelvic fluid collections were demonstrated. The composition of the fluid was lymph in seven cases, pus in four, blood in three and urine in two. Ten of these 16 patients had clinical features compatible(More)
AIMS To determine the prevalence of coeliac disease in a group of patients in the community who have been shown in the laboratory to have iron and/or folate deficiency. To assess the cost efficiency of this laboratory based case finding strategy. METHODS The study was undertaken in a large general hospital in the UK serving a population of 300 000. Three(More)
