"The use of lung ultrasound images for the differential diagnosis of pulmonary and cardiac interstitial pathology"
By: Gino Soldati, Marcello Demi
Editor's comment: In this article the authors underline the main sonographic features of interstitial syndromes, and provide differential diagnostic criteria to distinguish between primarily pulmonary or cardiogenic diseases.

Upasana Ranga, Naveen Kalra, Akshay K. Saxena, Anmol Bhatia, Manavjit S. Sandhu, Ajay K. Duseja, Yogesh K. Chawla, Niranjan Khandelwal
Editor's comment: In this original work, Ranga et al perform a qualitative comparison on the image quality between conventional sonography, real-time compound sonography, tissue harmonic sonography and tissue harmonic compound sonography in 100 patients with focal hepatic lesions.

By: Andrea Botticelli, Eva Mazzotti, Domenica Di Stefano, Viviana Petrocelli, Federica Mazzuca, Marco La Torre, Francesca Romana Ciabatta, Rosaria Maria Giovagnoli, Paolo Marchetti, Adriana Bonifacino
Editor's comment: This article focuses on the possibility of early diagnosis of breast cancer that can be obtained by adopting three diagnostic methods in synergy (UltraSound, ColorDoppler, ElastoSonography). Moreover, strong results were seen especially for lesions >1cm.
