Unilateral mild dilation of fetal lateral ventricle

Sometimes, borderline or minimal dilation of fetal lateral ventricle poses a dilemma for management of the pregnancy.

Hemochromatosis of liver, sonography

This adult male is a known case of hemochromatosis. 
#Hemochromatosis is characterized by increased absorption and storage of liver in body organs especially the liver. 
# Hemochromatosis is diagnosed by blood tests and Ultrasound imaging. 
# Ultrasound images below show coarse echotexture of liver with increased echogenicity 
# Ultrasound appearance of liver is similar to cirrhosis liver 
Coarse echotexture liver 👆
Portal vein shows normal flow on spectral Doppler 👆
Color Doppler 👆 ultrasound image: centripetal normal flow towards the liver in portal vein. Later in the hemochromatosis disease, it can show reverse flow
