To evaluate the localisation, frequency and amount of extravasation in patients with extra-articular contrast material leak into locations unrelated to the injection path in shoulder magnetic resonance (MR) arthrography and associated shoulder disorders. The sites of extravasation were determined on the shoulder MR arthrography of 40 patients. The(More)
This study evaluated contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (CE-MRA) and three-dimensional time-of-flight magnetic resonance angiography (3D-TOF-MRA) through comparisons with digital subtraction angiography (DSA) for the follow-up of intracranial aneurysms treated with detachable coils. Sixty-seven patients with 79 aneurysms underwent 3D-TOF-MRA,(More)
To assess the frequency and anatomic distributions of the posterior accessory great saphenous vein of the leg (PAGSVL) and its insufficiency rate using ultrasonography (US) in patients who presented with clinical, etiologic, anatomic, and pathophysiologic (CEAP) scores of 1 and above. A prospective US study on 200 limbs of 100 consecutive patients with CEAP(More)
Pedicle screw fixation of the spine has become one of the most stable and versatile methods of spine fixation, and knowledge of pedicle morphology is crucial for the safe application of these systems. We undertook this study because only a few reports have investigated Eastern populations. Lumbar pedicle anatomy, i.e., pedicle width (PW) and pedicle height(More)
PURPOSE In the assessment of recurrent bladder tumors, diagnostic efficiency of virtual cystoscopy carried out by multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) was investigated and compared with the criterion standard of conventional cystoscopy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-seven patients between 39 and 83 years who had undergone transurethral resection(More)
OBJECTIVE Brucellosis is a zoonotic disease and still a major public health problem in many geographic areas including Mediterranean basin and Middle East. Brucellosis causes multisystemic involvement and although rare central nervous system involvement causes serious manifestations. Neurobrucellosis occurs less than 5% of patients and presents with(More)
A 61-year-old man presented to the Emergency Department with vomiting and progressively worsening abdominal pain. A computed tomography (CT) was performed. The diagnosis of patient was acute cholecystitis and the patient was referred to general surgery clinic. In addition CT scan showed bilateral ectopic kidneys with urinary bladder herniation (Figures 1(More)
The authors present the findings of contrastenhanced electrocardiogram (ECG)-gated cardiac computed tomography (CT) in 18 patients with probably spontaneous closure of muscular ventricular septal defect (VSD). The study included 2,725 consecutive patients referred to our hospitals for multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) coronary angiography. The(More)
A 20-year-old male patient was admitted to our clinic with a 1-year history of headache. The patient's systemic-neurological examination and laboratory findings were normal. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging were performed. Imaging findings showed calcified intraventricular mass and subependymal and gyral nodular lesions. There was a slight(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to compare ultrasonography (US) and low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) for diagnosing pediatric urolithiasis in the emergency department. MATERIALS AND METHODS This retrospective study was approved by our institutional ethics committee, and informed consent was waived. From March 2016 to March 2017, 100 consecutive patients met(More)
