The aim of this study was to determine various imaging features of intraosseous meningiomas (IOMs) and differentiate low-grade from high-grade tumors. The histopathologic evaluation revealed World Health Organization (WHO) grade I tumor in 56 (86%) patients, grade II in 8 (12%), and grade III in 1 (2%) patient. WHO grade I was considered low grade and II(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to describe the clinical and multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) angiography findings of celiac, mesenteric, and renal artery entrapment by the median arcuate ligament. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients (n = 453) who underwent MDCT abdominal aorta angiography in a period of 3 years were retrospectively reviewed for vascular(More)
BACKGROUND In the postoperative period of posterior spinal surgery, surgeons usually encounter a wide spectrum of complications, including retained surgical sponge, gossypiboma. MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective review of case records of eight patients diagnosed with gossypiboma with emphasis on computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging(More)
OBJECTIVE The classical findings in hydatid disease caused by Echinococcus granulosus with liver or lung involvement are well known. However, diagnosing hydatid disease at unusual locations may be challenging because of variable imaging appearances depending on the host reaction. The purpose of this pictorial essay is to review the sonographic, CT, and MRI(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the time-signal intensity (SI) curves generated from intravenous (IV) gadodiamide-enhanced dynamic magnetic resonance (MR) urographic scans for identifying vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) during bladder filling. MATERIALS AND METHODS MR urographic studies of children were retrospectively reviewed, and 52 ureterorenal units of 26 patients(More)
Atypical coarctation of the descending thoracic and abdominal aorta is a very uncommon vascular disease. Congenital, acquired, inflammatory, and infectious etiologies have been proposed. Patients typically presents with uncontrolled secondary hypertension in the upper half of the body or hypotension in the lower extremities in the first three decades of(More)
OBJECTIVE To document the clinical and imaging characteristics of fungal rhinosinusitis (FRS). METHODS Imaging studies of 28 patients with FRS were retrospectively analyzed, considering the type of fungal disease, location, signal characteristics, bone changes, expansion, and extrasinus extension. RESULTS Acute invasive FRS showed unilateral(More)
The urachus is a midline tubular structure that extends upward from the dome of the bladder toward the umbilicus. This tubular structure normally involutes before birth, remaining as a fibrous band with no known function. Persistence of all or any portion of the fetal urachus results in several anomalies, the most common of which is the urachal cyst (Yu JS,(More)
A 34-year-old man presented with a 15-month history of pain along the left sciatic nerve. Radiographs and computed tomography (CT) revealed an exostosis on the postero-inferior aspect of the left femoral neck. Ultrasonographic examination of left upper thigh and a pelvic magnetic resonance (MR) imaging showed an enlarged sciatic nerve adjacent to the(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the role of diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWMRI) in differentiating benign and malignant thyroid nodules using a 3 Tesla (T) MRI scanner. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-eight nodules in 25 patients and 14 healthy control cases were included in the study. DWMRI was acquired with 6 b values with a 3T MRI scanner. The(More)
