The aim of this study was to delineate the precise relationship between the sphenoid sinus and internal carotid artery and the optic nerve, as well as to assess incidence of the anatomic variations of these structures. A review of 92 paranasal sinus tomographic scans was made for anatomic variations of the sphenoid sinus and related bony and neurovascular(More)
In this study, we aimed to assess the clinical, laboratory and radiological findings of vertebral involvement in brucellosis. Fourteen patients diagnosed with spondylitis and spondylodiscitis due to brucellosis were included in the study. Computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, or scintigraphy were used to diagnose the vertebral involvement. The(More)
The aim of this study was to determine dimensions of the normal menisci in 174 healthy subjects by using MRI. The menisci were divided into three zones (anterior horn, mid-body, posterior horn). The height and width of the both menisci were measured. For the medial meniscus; the height and width of the anterior horn were 5.32 mm and 7.78 mm, the height and(More)
Hydatid cyst of the skeletal muscle is rare and can pose various diagnostic problems. The authors report the case of a patient with primary hydatid cysts localized to intermuscular area of the forearm, emphasizing the diagnostic value of MRI. To the best of our knowledge, this localization of the hydatic cyst has not been reported to date.
To examine the clinical and radiologic findings of patients with developmental venous anomaly (DVA) associated with intracranial haemorrhage but unrelated to cavernoma. Computed tomography (CT) was used to obtain intracranial images from seven patients ranging in age from 6 to 51 years. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was then performed on six patients,(More)
Advances in surgical techniques and instrumentations, utilization of the imaging tools, and understanding the regional anatomy have served to make functional operations with less complications in the paranasal sinus area. In the context of this article, some of these anatomical structures and their variations were reviewed through images. These structures(More)
Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) represents the most common mesenchymal malignancy of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. In neurofibromatosis (NF), the increased incidence of tumor needs to be considered even in non-symptomatic individuals. Patients with neurofibromatosis NF type 1 have an increased risk of developing GI tumors including rare types such(More)
In this study, we aimed to assess anatomical relationship between the anterior inferior cerebellar artery (AICA) and cochleovestibular nerve (CNV) in patients with non-specific cochleovestibular symptoms using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). One-hundred and forty patients with non-specific neuro-otologic symptoms were assessed using cranial and temporal(More)
We assessed the morphological and radiological characteristics of ethmomaxillary sinus (EMS), which is an enlarged posterior ethmoidal air cell occupying the superior portion of the maxillary sinus while draining into superior meatus. This study is based on 1450 patients submitted to CT examination of the paranasal sinuses between 1998 and 2002. Sequential(More)
Primary mucinous cystic tumors of the retroperitoneum are rarely encountered and have been reported in approximately 25 cases in the literature. The histogenesis of primary mucinous cystadenomas is not clear. Most authors suggest that it develops through mucinous metaplasia in a pre-existing mesothelium-lined cyst. Surgery is the only treatment. In this(More)
