cirrhosis

patients who have hepatocellular are likely to have had

pheochromocytoma

a pagtient presents with severe headaches, heart palpatations and intermittent hypertension, what patholgy would you suspect

teratoma

what lesion may mimic a gas containing abscess

metastatic lesions

adrenal insufficiency is typically caused by

arteriosclerosis

the most common cause of an AAA is

cavernous hemangioma

what tumor consist of large blood filled space

adenocarcinoma of the pancreas

a patient with painless jaundice, weight loss, decreased appetitie, and pain radiating to the back should be evaluated for

colon

a meckel's diverticulum is most commonly found in the

irregular echogenic mass projecting from the gallbladder wall

what is the most common sonographic appearance of the GB carcinoma

biloma

an extrahepatic loculated fluid collection caused by a spontaneous rupture of the biliary tree is called

cavernous hemangioma

a splenic rupture can be caused by

renal cell carcinoma

renal vein thrombosis may be commonly visualized with

laterally

para-aortic lymphadenopathy generally displaces the kidney in which direction

ovaries, stomach and colon

the most primary lesions to develop peritoneal metastasis originate in the

splenic infarct

patient has no specific complaints but a history of lymphomatous disorders. during the inverview they state that they have a valve defect on the left side of the heart what pathology do you suspect

...

patient present to the er with intermittent excruciating rt flank pain, nausea, vomiting and hematuria what pathology do you suspect

true

true or false using a curved array transducer will improve the visualization of the posterior liver

mucocele

patient present in the er with RLQ pain, fever and elevated leukocytes. the patient states they appendix has been removed. what patholgy would be suspected

true

true or false a congenital simple cyst will not produce a complex sonographic appearance

false

true or false the sonographic finding for a leiomyoma is a pedicle mass extending into the stomach
