The authors reviewed 76 magnetic resonance (MR) images of 38 patients with osteosarcoma treated with preoperative chemotherapy (intraarterial cisplatin with or without systemic chemotherapy). Histologic maps of the surgical tumor specimens in 33 cases were correlated with either late-chemotherapy or postchemotherapy MR images. There were four MR(More)
Primary bone lymphoma is an uncommon malignancy that accounts for less than 5% of all primary bone tumors. The radiographic appearances of primary bone lymphoma are variable, and, because the lesion can appear near normal on plain radiographs, a second modality such as bone scintigraphy or magnetic resonance (MR) imaging should be used. Despite this(More)
The magnetic resonance (MR) imaging features of liposarcoma were correlated with histology in 15 patients. The MR findings for liposarcoma were not specific. The six myxoid liposarcomas and two atypical lipomatous tumors, however, had distinctive MR features, i.e., nodular masses of slightly heterogeneous intermediate to high signal intensity (SI),(More)
Fifteen patients with pathologically proven focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) of the liver had abdominal computed tomography (CT) (15) and ultrasound (11). In seven patients, the lesions were incidentally found during gallbladder or renal examination, whereas the other eight had a primary neoplasm and the liver was studied for possible metastasis. In 11(More)
In this review, a brief discussion of the important events of pancreatic embryology is followed by presentation of congenital anomalies and normal variants. For each variant, the appearance at different radiologic modalities including computed tomography, magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, MR(More)
Outstanding results have been achieved with magnetic resonance (MR) angiography, which has become competitive with conventional angiography as a vascular imaging technique. With the advances in gradient technology and the capability of imaging vessels in a single breath hold, one can track an intravenous bolus of paramagnetic contrast agent and evaluate the(More)
Computed tomographic (CT) and angiographic findings in 14 patients (eight men, six women, aged 30-72 years) with sarcomatoid renal cell carcinoma (SRCC) and various types of renal sarcoma are described. There were four patients with SRCC; three, leiomyosarcoma; two, liposarcoma; two, fibrosarcoma; and one each of unclassified renal sarcoma, clear cell(More)
