Estimation of Fetal Weight in Pregnant Women by Placenta Thickness Using Ultrasonography

Abstract The purpose of this descriptive study is to investigate the relationship between the placenta thickness and estimated fetal weight in normal sudanese pregnant women. The data collected in ATMUZE and ASODY hospitals in Khartoum state from January to July 2017. The study included seventy pregnant women in second and third trimesters were scanned by ultrasound machine. Fetal weight was estimated by measurement of femur length (FL) and abdominal circumference (AC). Placenta thickness wa...

Evaluation of Normative Tonsils Size in Sudanese Children by Using Ultrasound

ABSTRACT  Defining the normal value of the palatine tonsil size among the young Sudanese population is essential for a reliable evaluation of children with enlargement or signs and symptoms of tonsil disease. An ultrasound measurement was therefore undertaken to determine the normal range of the tonsil diameter among Sudanese children. The purpose of this study was to investigate a large ultrasound imaging study to evaluate the normal size of the tonsil during development of children using h...

Assessment of Amniotic Fluid Volume in Diabetic Pregnant Women during the second and third trimesters using ultrasound

Abstract  The objective of this study is to assess the amniotic fluid volume in diabetic pregnant women during the second and third trimesters and to identify the effect of diabetes mellitus on amniotic fluid volume . Fifty diabetic pregnant women in the second and third trimesters which undergoing ultrasound exam in the department at Elskaikh Fadul and Elsoudy hospital at Ommdurman. All diabetic pregnant women were in the second and third trimesters, and were scanned by (3.5 MH) convex prob...

Study of Developmental Hip Dysplasia in Saudi Infants Using Ultrasonography

ABSTRACT The objectives of this study were to characterize the DDH in Saudi infants using US, also to evaluate the hip joint for infants who were clinically diagnosed to have Developmental hip dysplasia (DDH) focusing mostly on the Graf’s method using ultrasonography, by measuring the α and β angles and correlate the results with the anatomical findings related the hip. The study was conducted during the period extended from 2011 up to 2017. The hips of 536 newborn infants were examined ...

The Association of Placenta Previa with Cesarean Delivery using Ultrasound

ABSTRACT  This is a descriptive cross-sectional study conducted in Turkish hospital, Khartoum city. The duration of study was 5 months from first January 2016 to May 2016. The main aim was to identify the association of placenta previa with number of previous cesarean section done in pregnant women. In antenatal clinic as per protocol 50 pregnant women were scanned in their second and third trimester for fetal wellbeing and placental localization after taking a detailed obstetrical history a...

Characterization of the Heart in Hypertensive Patients using Ultrasound

ABSTRACT This research is conducted so as to know the importance of ultrasonography (Echocardiography) in the control, follow-up & the diagnosis of the different types of cardiac complications of hypertension (the impact of HTN on the heart muscles, valves and blood supply). The data was collected from Ribat teaching hospital, using an echocardiographic machine. This includes the left atrium, the left ventricular diameter in both systolic and diastolic phases as well as the valvular diameters...

Assessment of Pancreas in Diabetic Patients using Ultrasound

Abstract This is experimental study was done in Clinic of ultrasound, Alfao, Algadarif state, Sudan, during the period from June to October 2018, using Sonoscape A6machine with Curvilinear transducer 3.5MHZ to measure the normal spleen dimensions in adult Sudanese, and to correlate these dimensions with the variables of age, gender, height, weight and body mass index, the study was done with the subjects lying in right lateral decubits in deep breath the spleen dimensions were measured by cen...

Abstract This is experimental study was done in Clinic of ultrasound, Alfao, Algadarif state, Sudan, during the period from June to October 2018, using Sonoscape A6machine with Curvilinear transducer 3.5MHZ to measure the normal spleen dimensions in adult Sudanese, and to correlate these dimensions with the variables of age, gender, height, weight and body mass index, the study was done with the subjects lying in right lateral decubits in deep breath the spleen dimensions were measured by cen...

A Study of Eyes Diseases in Diabetic Patients using Ultrasonography

Abstract Ultrasound has become an increasingly important role in the diagnosis and early detection of most widespread diseases. It is characterized by availability, ease and cheapness. The study evaluated diabetic eyes using ultrasound. Diabetes is a very common disease in the world population. It not only causes fatigue but also affects the economy of countries. The aim of the present study is to study the role of B-scan. Ultrasonography in the eye for diabetic patients. A descriptive analyt...

Study of Causes of First Trimester Complications using Ultrasonography

Abstract The demand for ultrasound in early pregnancy has been increasing steadily, and is now a routine investigation for most women within the first trimester of their pregnancy. It is a safe investigation which provides reassurance, charts normal development, and identifies women with abnormal or high risk pregnancies. The main objectives of this study is to determine the causes of pregnancy failure in first trimester, to identify sonographer features of early pregnancy failure, and to stu...

Determination Of Aflatoxin Levels In Stored White Maize (Zea Mays L.) And Flour In Kitui, Mwingi And Makueni Districts In Kenya

ABSTRACT Aflatoxins are fungal metabolites which are toxic, mutagenic and carcinogenic and thus cause undesirable effects on animal and human health when ingested with feed or foodstuffs. Aflatoxin producing fungi may occur in certain food products in form of spores, and thus when conditions are favourable, the fungi germinate and may produce aflatoxin in varied amounts. Ingestion of higher dose of aflatoxin (Codex Commission upper limit is 10ppb), may result in aflatoxicosis which manifests ...

Characterization Of Escherichia Coli Strains And Salmonella Enterica Serovars Isolated In Gallus Gallus And Their Antimicrobial Susceptibility

ABSTRACT Indigenous chicken production in most African countries including Kenya is traditionally based on free feed resources available in the surrounding environment. There is a high risk of zoonosis that could be an important source of enteric pathogens transmissible to humans. The apparently healthy chicken, like other food animals shed enteric pathogens, notably Salmonella spp. and Escherichia coli that are associated with antimicrobial resistance. The purpose of this study was to charac...

Estimation Of Splenic Volume In Sudanese Adults Using Ultrasonography

Abstract The spleen is the largest haemolymph nodes in the body and large part of the reticuloendothelial tissue of the body is concentrated in it. This is an experimental study designed to determine the application of ultrasound for estimation of splenic weight, length and height of Sudanese adult patients. Fifty adult patients were enrolled in the study; healthy volunteer persons who referred to ultrasound department for abdomen ultrasound were included. Any person with abnormal splenic me...
