Ultrasound-guided aspiration of hematomas is a safe and effective procedure. The sonographic appearance of a hematoma is unrelated to its age. Although a hematoma with a hypoechoic appearance is easier to aspirate than hematomas with other echotextures, the appearance and age of a hematoma should not dissuade one from trying to aspirate it Hematoma. Hematomas (alternative plural: hematomata) are the name given to localized collections of blood and they can form virtually anywhere in the body. They often form secondary to trauma or surgery but spontaneous formation is also not uncommon, especially in those with coagulation disorders or on anticoagulant therapy Intramuscular hematoma radiology discussion including radiology cases. Etiology: trauma, post-procedural, anticoagulation US: acutely hypoechoic lesion within muscle, chronically may be septated, isoechoic, or calcified CT: acutely see diffuse isodense enlargement of a muscle which may have areas of high density, chronically appear low density. Intramuscular hematoma is easily recognized owing to local architectural distortion, appearing as an intramuscular mass of variable signal intensity depending on the stage of blood degradation. The evolution of blood degradation within intracranial hematoma at MR imaging is well described; muscle follows the same pattern, albeit with a more. Intramuscular angiomas or intramuscular hemangiomas are benign vascular soft tissue tumors consisting of benign vascular channels within the skeletal muscle
Serial MR Imaging of Intramuscular Hematoma hematomas at four weeks and three of 14 hematomas at six weeks had disappeared. Therefore, 17 of the hematomas at four weeks and 11 hematomas at six weeks were analyzed. The mean size of the hematomas was 1.9 x 2.8 x 3.8 mm at four weeks and 1.7 x 2.5 x 3.1 mm at six weeks after injury For quadriceps contusions, consider imaging if unable to perform painless full range of motion after 3-4 weeks of conservative therapy to evaluate for conditions such as Myositis Ossificans, intramuscular hematoma or seroma, osteomyelitis. 9; Role of Laboratory studies: In most cases, extensive laboratory workup is unnecessary. On the other hand, the clinical diagnosis of a deep hematoma may be much more complicated. In this case, the clinical diagnosis must necessarily be supported by the imaging consisting of ultrasonography and / or MR. However, the formulation of a precise and definitive diagnosis in case of an intramuscular hematoma, becomes possible only afte MR imaging is well-suited for the evaluation of soft-tissue tumors and tumorlike lesions because of its intrinsically high soft-tissue contrast and its capability to aid in imaging superficial and deep soft tissues over both large and small fields of view (20,45,46,48,49,54,58) On the T1-weighted imaging (T1WI), the intramuscular hematomas exhibited isointensity compared to that of muscle or the development of a high signal intensity (SI) rim on day one after injury. The high SI persisted until eight weeks after injury
Purpose: To report our experience using a multilevel patient management algorithm to direct transarterial embolization (TAE) in managing spontaneous intramuscular hematoma (SIMH). Materials and methods: From May 2006 to January 2014, twenty-seven patients with SIMH had been referred for TAE to our Radiology department. Clinical status and coagulation characteristics of the patients are analyzed . The high SI persisted until eight weeks after injury On the T1-weighted imaging (T1WI), the intramuscular hematomas exhibited isointensity compared to that of muscle or the development of a high signal intensity (SI) rim on day one after injury. The.. Ultrasound and MRI are the two major diagnostic imaging modalities for evaluating the soft tissues of the thigh. Advances in ultrasound technology, including higher-frequency transducers, allow diagnosis of many types of musculoskeletal abnormalities, in many cases with an accuracy similar to that of MRI [ 1 - 4 ] Soft tissue sarcoma (STS) with extensive intra-tumoral hemorrhage is an infrequently described entity, usually misdiagnosed as intra-muscular hematoma. The outcomes in this group of patients have not been previously described. We retrospectively identified 15 patients, with initial clinical or imaging diagnosis of hematoma, or hematoma versus hemorrhagic sarcoma, although final diagnosis of.
Hematoma: Largely solid-looking echogenic mass with small cystic areas and no intrinsic hyperemia. - Often history of trauma. Seroma: Anechoic fluid collection ± internal debris; minimal or no wall hyperemia. - Nearby surgery. Lymphocele: Anechoic fluid collection, no internal debris, no wall hyperemia. - Nearby vascular surgery Among the pseudotumors, intramuscular hematomas and soft-tissue abscesses both require caution and surveillance because of their sarcoma-like appearance. [1,2] Hematoma. The ultrasound similarity between a malignant tumor with necrosis and a hematoma should prompt the utmost caution In the early stages, an intramuscular hyporeflective mass is seen, which may show some central zonal hyper-reflectivity. Calcification develops 6-8 weeks after the original injury function test and renal profile were normal. Ultrasound showed a well localized swelling within the posterior compartment of the left calf. This was confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with gadolinium contrast. The radiologist reported it as a large hematoma on the medial aspect of the left calf. It was located within the muscula
Performing MR imaging is more sensitive compared to CT imaging when diagnosing a hematoma. Coronal T2-weighted images are more useful.10) Moreover, it is more difficult to distinguish a neoplasm and an abscess compared to hematoma when performing CT imaging. The hematoma diffusely involves the muscle compared to the neoplasm and abscess Chronic expanding hematoma is characterized by continuous growth of a blood collection. We analyzed the clinical features of 7 patients with chronic expanding hematomas in the extremities, with an average age of 65.6 years. All lesions occurred in the lower extremities, with 4 seen in the thigh and 3 in the knee region. Six patients had subcutaneous hematomas, while 1 was deep-seated in the thigh The imaging examinations (US, CT or both) were carried out according to the diagnostic suspicion of the emergency staff, to the clinical presentation of pain and to comorbidities. The treatment could be conservative or surgical depending on the haemoglobin values and on the diagnostic imaging signs of active bleeding
Magnetic resonance imaging of hematomas in a 0.02 T magnetic field. Alanen A. One intramuscular calf hematoma, 2 ankle hematomas and 4 cephalhematomas were imaged at various ages in a low magnetic field (0.02 T). At least one spin echo (SE) multislice image and a series of inversion recovery images (IR) were made varying the inversion time for. Background This case report reviews a 50-year-old male who presented with recurrent thigh hematoma secondary to pleomorphic sarcoma. Initial diagnosis was delayed due to soft tissue mass obscurity on imaging and a misleading history of muscle injury. The patient underwent three hematoma incision an
Intramuscular hematoma. According to the American College of Radiology Appropriateness Criteria, ultrasound remains the initial test of choice for imaging patients with right upper quadrant pain because of its greater availability, shorter study time for identification or exclusion of diagnoses, and lack of ionizing radiation.. The tear of gastrocnemius muscle medial head and myotendinous junction associated with a large intramuscular hematoma measuring about 8*10*18 cm and marked subcutaneous edematous changes. Abnormal intrasubstance increased fluid signal along with gastrocnemius muscle lateral head and myotendinous junction due to partial thickness tear. Baker cyst The reference standard of imaging muscle injuries of the hip and thigh is MRI using fluid-sensitive and T1-weighted sequences. Typical findings are edema, hematoma, and partial or complete muscles tears. Simple grading systems are used in the assessment of muscle injuries in professional sports Soft tissue sarcoma (STS) with extensive intra-tumoral hemorrhage is an infrequently described entity, usually misdiagnosed as intra-muscular hematoma. The outcomes in this group of patients have not been previously described. We retrospectively identified 15 patients, with initial clinical or imaging diagnosis of hematoma, or hematoma versus hemorrhagic sarcoma, although final diagnosis of.
sarcoma occasionally accompanies large hematoma . In certain situation, soft tissue sarcoma may be initially misdiagnosed as deep intramuscular hematoma. Clinicians should be aware of the possibility of soft tissue sarcoma masquerading hematoma after trauma. MRI is a powerful tool for diagnosing soft tissue masse A 27-year-old footballer with a grade 1 injury on ultrasound, presenting with left calf pain. (a) On ultrasound examination, a small hypoechogenic area measuring 1 × 0.4 cm was noted (arrows), corresponding with a grade 1 strain of the medial head of the gastrocnemius.(b) No evidence of hematoma or other abnormality was observed, but only circumscribed, non-fluid-equivalent hypoechogenicity. A hematoma (aka - hema-tomatoe) is a collection of blood that causes the leg to swell and even deform the thigh or leg. Not all hematomas are the same. Most bleed very slow, less often they bleed very fast and this is a medical emergency. Hematomas often arise after a pretty big fall, or they can even appear some days after the fall These cases are very challenging since the injury symptoms and imaging studies could mask the underlying tumor. We present the cases of three patients with high-grade sarcomas who initially suffered moderated traumas to their extremities and were initially diagnosed with intramuscular hematomas by clinical and imaging studies
Dealing with these cases are quite challenging since both the intramuscular hematoma and soft tissue sarcoma share the similar clinical symptoms and imaging findings. Case Report A 60-year old female kicked on the motor vehicle with the right lower extremity and developed mild pain at the right calf in September 2017 Bilateral rectus femoris haematoma following a simultaneous strain of the quadriceps muscles is a very rare condition. We report the case of a 21-year-old Greek Caucasian female rowing athlete who was injured on both thighs. She complained of pain and inability to walk. Physical examination revealed tenderness over the thighs and restriction of knee movement As the common tumor-like lesions in the abdominal wall, hernias, endometriosis, hematomas, and abscesses usually have a characteristic appearance both clinically and on cross-sectional imaging, particularly on MRI, thus facilitating diagnosis. In some difficult or atypical cases, biopsy or follow-up is recommended. Hernia One intramuscular calf hematoma, 2 ankle hematomas and 4 cephalhematomas were imaged at various ages in a low magnetic field (0.02 T). At least one spin echo (SE) multislice image and a series of inversion recovery images (IR) were made varying the inversion time for estimation of the relaxation time T1 Ultrasound serves as an effective and inexpensive modality to diagnose these bleeds and hematomas, especially in regions not easily accessible clinically. Ultrasound demonstrates whether the hematoma is solid or liquid and can also aid in detecting secondary complications such as an infected hematoma

Acoustic shadowing by. Imaging and Tests for Posterior Lower Leg. Fig. 7.1. A 27-year-old football player presenting with left calf pain, clinically diagnosed as grade II injury. a On ultrasound at initial presentation, a hypoechoic area measuring 1.0 × 0.4 cm was noted (arrow), corresponding with a partial tear of the medial head of the gastrocnemius (GM) Intramuscular hematoma . Two patients with known hemophilia presenting with hip pain. No hemarthrosis on hip ultrasound. However, intramuscular collections were visualised consistent with hematomata given the clinical history Imaging findings and history were consistent with an intramuscular hematoma thought secondary to a hamstring rupture. We proceeded with surgical management and evacuated 1500 mL of clot through a 5 cm longitudinal incision, which was closed primarily following drain placement
Hematoma with active contrast extravasation and vasospasm. Patient with a gunshot wound to the right lower pelvis and upper thigh with gas and blood products in the subcutaneous tissues of the upper right thigh (a and b). Arterial phase imaging (a) demonstrates contrast layering dependently within the hematoma In this case, the clinical diagnosis must necessarily be supported by the imaging consisting of ultrasonography and / or MR. However, the formulation of a precise and definitive diagnosis in case of an intramuscular hematoma, becomes possible only after 12-72 hours from the detrimental event, since the formation of the hematoma may also appear. Ultrasound - Musculoskeletal. Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves and joints throughout the body. It is used to help diagnose sprains, strains, tears, trapped nerves, arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions. Ultrasound is safe, noninvasive, and does not use ionizing radiation Sonography is usually regarded as a first-line imaging modality for masses and masslike lesions in the abdominal wall. A dynamic study focusing on a painful area or palpable mass and the possibility of ultrasound-guided aspiration or biopsy are the major advantages of sonography Imaging showed SMH in the left posterolateral chest wall and gluteus minimus requiring blood transfusions and cessation of FA. D-dimer was 1.2 μ g/ml. A week later, imaging showed increased hematoma size in the left chest wall and right gluteal area. After hemoglobin stabilized, he was started on DVT prophylaxis
Muscular hematomas are in simple terms defined by bleeding within a muscle group. These muscular hematomas may be traumatic or spontaneous. Traumatic muscle hematomas, while painful to the patient, are manageable with conservative rest and non-narcotic pain medication. Spontaneous muscle hematomas, in contrast, are mainly located in the. Disproving the spontaneous hematoma. Figure 1. Coronal T1 (top left) and STIR (top right) imaging show a complex, cystic mass with a high degree of heterogeneity on STIR imaging, more homogeneous in appearance on T1 (this can be typical of hematomas). The mass is adjacent to the medial knee joint capsule but does not violate the knee joint

Infected soft-tissue pseudotumor
A compression ultrasound (CUS) in the ER showed a left thigh hematoma (5 x 21 x 48 mm) together with soleal and gastrocnemius deep vein thrombosis. Conclusions No treatment guidelines are available for this variant of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and data regarding the risk factors and natural history of ISGVT are limited suspected of being a soft-tissue hematoma/pseudotumor was explored adequately and quickly demonstrated with this imaging modality. In pediatric population, ultrasound, due to its lack of irradiation, was also useful for investigation and follow-up of visceral hematomas. (Fig. 21 on page 28)
MRI is the imaging modality of choice in the evaluation of Morel-Lavallee lesions. 2 Morel-Lavalee lesions are well defined oval, fusiform, or crescentic and may have tapering margins that fuse with adjacent fascial planes. Morel-Lavallee lesions may show fluid-fluid levels, septations, and variable internal signal intensity dependent on the. The ultrasound used was an Acuson Sequoia 512 system with an 8-15 MHz capability probe. The lesions imaged on ultrasound were assessed prospectively (prior to surgery) by a radiologist. Three radiologists provided a blinded, independent, retrospective review of the images as well. Hematoma - no clinical signs of injury or history of. Abstract. PurposeTo report our experience using a multilevel patient management algorithm to direct transarterial embolization (TAE) in managing spontaneous intramuscular hematoma (SIMH).Materials and MethodsFrom May 2006 to January 2014, twenty-seven patients with SIMH had been referred for TAE to our Radiology department Intramuscular haemangiomas may present later in life as a cause of persistent symptoms and may present as a perceived sporting injury. Diagnostic ultrasound is an appropriate initial imaging modality for suspected haemangioma, although magnetic resonance imaging is the investigation of choice

Imaging can not only confirm the presence of a mass but can also provide essential information necessary for diagnosis, local staging, and biopsy planning 1 [,2]. While the objectives of the evaluation have not changed, the choices availabl intramuscular hematoma, It may also depend on the location and site of the growth, such as sarcoma or (rarely) soft tissue carcinoma metastases, due to gravity. confusion, and subsequent follow-up imaging studies demonstrated resolution of the hematoma. The differential of a spontaneous hematoma must also include intramuscular aneurysm.
Ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies 2-3 days postinjury may be recommended to rule out total muscular rupture or an intramuscular hematoma if significant weakness is still present. An MRI is often ordered to help clinicians prepare for possible surgery if radiographs reveal a gross deformity Intramuscular hemangiomas are uncommon neoplasm's arising most frequently in the masseter and trapezius muscle. Due to it's location it is often mistaken for a parotid swelling and rarely is an accurate pre-operative diagnosis achieved clinically. The intra masseteric location also poses special problem in terms of proximity to the facial nerve and the post operative flattening following.
