PURPOSE The pancreas is an unusual but occasionally favored site for metastases in patients with advanced malignancy. The pivotal role of computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examination in detecting the pancreatic mass and providing guidance to obtain a definitive tissue diagnosis is emphasized in this study.

Treacher-Collins syndrome or mandibulofacial dysostosis is an autosomal dominant disorder of craniofacial development. In this familial syndrome there is an arrest in the development of the facial bones, manifested by a depression of the malar bones, an antimonogoloid slant of the palpebral fissures, mandibular hypoplasia with retrognathia, coloboma of the(More)
Extra-axial cavernous sinus hemangiomas are rare and account for less than 1% of parasellar tumors. These lesions have characteristic radiological features but the differential diagnosis from parasellar meningiomas and schwannomas can be difficult. Preoperative diagnosis is important due to the risk of severe intraoperative bleeding and the complex(More)
Cavernous hemangioma is the most common intraorbital lesion in adults. The aim of our study was to evaluate the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound (US) characteristics of cavernous hemangioma and their role in the differential diagnosis of orbital tumors. Eight patients with orbital cavernous hemangiomas, five women and three men with a mean(More)
This study discusses the CT findings of pneumosinus dilatans of the sphenoid sinus, highlighting the clinically important CT characteristics. The CT findings of 26 patients with overpneumatization of the sphenoid sinus are presented in correlation with the clinical findings. Twenty-two patients had overpneumatization beyond the boundaries of the body of the(More)
