The lower limbs of 84 consecutive patients (48 women and 36 men, age range: 16-75 years, average: 38 years) suffering from acute aching calf symptoms were examined with conventional and color Doppler US. Thirteen cases of muscular thrombosis in the calf were observed, together with 19 cases of deep venous thrombosis, 7 post-phlebitic syndromes, 9 lymphatic(More)
The authors compared the adequacy of phlebography and color-Doppler US in the diagnosis of subclavian-axillary thrombosis, or Paget-Schroetter syndrome. Ten patients with subclavian-axillary thrombosis (8 men and 2 women, aged 16 to 55 years, mean age: 30 years) were examined over a two-year period. All of them underwent color-Doppler US and conventional(More)
Thirty-eight patients (45 limbs on the whole) with clinical suspicion of deep venous thrombosis in the lower limbs were examined with duplex US and color-Doppler flow mapping. The results were compared with those of ascending phlebography used as a reference. Disease sites included distal localizations, limited to the leg, with no involvement of the(More)
Over a 2-year period the authors examined 400 patients affected with different types of phlebopathies with combined real-time US and pulsed Doppler (Duplex system). Ninety-eight patients had deep phlebothrombosis, 45 had superficial phlebothrombosis, and 110 primitive or secondary vein insufficiency. The obtained data, supported in 171 cases by(More)
Even though the problem of collecting and processing information is of paramount importance in any radiology department, the choice of the best information system--as for organization and effectiveness--largely depends on specific and different local situations and is therefore still largely debated. In the ULSS 18 in Veneto (Dolo, Venezia), all patients(More)
Sclerotherapy has been used with satisfactory results, for several years in the treatment of varicose veins. Nevertheless sometimes sclerosis can be incomplete because of the morphology of lower limbs or because the varicose disease is not clinically evident. In addition, sclerotherapy can give rise to severe complications due to intrarterial or(More)
Small cell lung cancer is generally staged as a localized or diffuse disease due to its great invasiveness and quick spread. The authors investigated the advantages of a more accurate staging by TNM system applied to small cell lung cancer. Sixteen patients (12 males and 4 females, mean age 54 years, max 66, min 48) were submitted to a treatment protocol(More)
The authors analyze the results obtained by means of Doppler US, duplex examination and venography in the preoperative evaluation of venous vascular anatomy and flow dynamics in the popliteal fossa for short saphenous vein surgery. As a whole, 50 legs were examined in 34 patients who subsequently underwent surgery. The confluence of the short saphenous vein(More)
This trial was aimed at comparing the tolerance and the safety of Iopentol, a new nonionic monomeric contrast agent, with Iohexol, a reference compound already on the market and commonly used in similar trials. Sixty adult patients (41 women and 19 men, aged 23 to 76 years, mean age: 51.4 years) referred to our Department of Radiology for varicography 24(More)
