Most fungal infections of the urinary tract involve the drainage structures rather than the kidney parenchyma. They usually occur in patients with diabetes or other chronic debilitating diseases and in the presence of urinary stasis. Conglomeration of fibrillar hyphae results in fungal balls which produce nonopaque filling defects in the renal pelvis,… (More)
A prospective evaluation of computed tomography and ultrasound was performed on 24 consecutive patients with suspected pelvic masses. Of the 24 patients, 22 had subsequent surgical identification of abnormalities; two were considered normal on clinical follow-up. Ultrasound provided important clinical information in 17 of 24 patients; CT in 15 of 24… (More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the clinical utility of dynamic gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the breast with commercially available techniques in patients scheduled for excisional biopsy.

Lymphoceles frequently develop following renal transplant surgery. The conventional methods used to drain lymphoceles are invasive and can be associated with complications. Laparoscopic drainage of posttransplant lymphoceles provides a safer alternative.
Computed body tomography has become useful in the diagnosis of pancreatic disease. Pancreatitis frequently results in lateral and posterior extension of inflammatory tissue into the pararenal fat planes, which can be visualized by CT. In our series it was associated with clinically diagnosed pancreatitis. Of 100 cases studied for abdominal pathology where… (More)
The mammographic features of hidradenitis suppurativa axillaris, a common clinical entity, are described for the first time in this report. Lucent axillary masses with a small central density appear to be a pathognomonic radiographic finding. Other entities seen on mammography such as lipomas, lucent galactoceles, traumatic oil cysts, axillary hibernomas… (More)
Although oral cholecystography is a highly accurate investigation for the diagnosis of gallbladder disease, false normal examinations do occur. In other patients, the presence of jaundice, nausea, or vomiting may preclude oral cholecystography. When there is clinical suspicion of gallbladder disease with a normal or equivocal oral cholecystogram, ultrasound… (More)
