The scans of 100 consecutive patients referred for computed tomographic examinations that included the oropharynx were reviewed with regard to calcifications of the palatine tonsillary region. Calcifications were found in 20% of the female patients and 13% of the male patients. Ten patients had one calculus, and six had two or more. The sizes of the calculi(More)
Anteversion of the acetabulum and of the femoral neck was determined by use of computed tomography in 47 adults with normal hips and in 39 patients with osteoarthritis. The normal anteversion of the acetabulum was found to be 17 +/- 6 degrees (mean +/- standard deviation) and of the femoral neck 13 +/- 7 degrees. In the patients with osteoarthritis the(More)
A retrospective analysis of the findings at contrast-enhanced CT, MR imaging and angiography in 24 patients with vascular mass lesions and 11 patients with hypervascular tumors in the head and neck region was undertaken. We attempted to find criteria at CT and MR imaging that could aid in differentiating between different lesion categories. Parameters such(More)
The effects of iohexol, a new non-ionic contrast medium, after intravenous injection into humans are reported. After injection of small doses into 2 subjects, iohexol was injected intravenously into 20 healthy male volunteers in doses of 125 to 500 mg I/kg body weight. A large number of physiologic, biochemical, hematologic and pharmacokinetic parameters(More)
PURPOSE To describe CT appearances in patients with unilateral cleft lip and palate (CLP) 20 years after bone graft surgery. MATERIAL AND METHODS Eighteen consecutive patients with unilateral CLP were examined. All patients had been treated with primary closure, both in infancy and early childhood, supplemented with bone grafting at the age of around 10(More)
Priapism, whether of the arterial or veno-occlusive type, mainly affects the cavernous bodies, leaving the low-pressure system in glans and corpus spongiosum soft without urethral compression. In the present 2 case reports, the pathologically increased pressure primarily affected the corpus spongiosum. One had arterial priapism following penile(More)
Two hundred ninety-three patients with Stage IB carcinoma of the uterine cervix were treated by intracavitary irradiation followed by radical hysterectomy and pelvic lymph node dissection in the 3-year period 1970 to 1972, inclusive. Preoperative lymphography was performed and intraoperative films were taken to obtain a lymphadenectomy that was as complete(More)
To elucidate the reliability of CT in the assessment of bronchiectasis, a retrospective study of high resolution CT and bronchography was carried out. A segment by segment comparison of 259 segmental bronchi from 70 lobes of 27 lungs in 19 patients was performed using bronchography as standard. CT was positive in 87 of 89 segmental bronchi with(More)
Twenty patients with histologically verified carcinoid liver metastases underwent a total of 24 liver artery embolizations by means of interventional radiologic techniques. There were no deaths. The postembolization syndrome, consisting of fever, abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting, occurred in all the patients. Severe complications were rare, the most(More)
