Abstract

Despite advancement in the diagnosis and treatment of intestinal helminthiasis, ascariasis remains the most common cause of helminthic infections in the developing countries. Ultrasound offers a rapid, safe, and noninvasive approach to the diagnosis of intestinal ascariasis. Ultrasound is also the modality of choice for diagnosis of hepatobiliary ascariasis, which is relatively rare and is due to migration of intestinal worms through the papilla of Vater. We present an imaging spectrum of hepato-pancreatico-biliary and intestinal ascariasis. • Ascariasis refer to infestation by the round worm ascaris lumbricoides. • Ascaris eggs are excreted in faeces and are infective to humans. • Eggs hatch to larva, travel to the lungs and mature to adult worms. • Intestinal obstruction can be caused by multiple ascariasis forming bag of worms.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 08 February 2016.
All research outputs
#3,573,473
of 7,128,274 outputs
Outputs from Insights Into Imaging
#94
of 215 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#119,876
of 232,396 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Insights Into Imaging
#6
of 7 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 7,128,274 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 28th percentile – i.e., 28% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 215 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.0. This one is in the 42nd percentile – i.e., 42% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 232,396 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 38th percentile – i.e., 38% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 7 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
