AIMS Ultrasound is a non-invasive, non-ionising radiation modality which is highly successful at soft tissue imaging. Groin pain from an occult hernia can be a difficult clinical diagnosis made easier by good imaging. The aim of this study was to demonstrate the accuracy of ultrasound in diagnosing and typing the groin hernia, which could lead to its… (More)
Among the genes implicated for parkinsonism is glucocerebrosidase (GBA), which causes Gaucher disease (GD). Despite a growing literature that GD may present as parkinsonism, neuroimaging, olfaction, and neuropsychological testing have not been extensively reported. We describe transcranial sonography (TCS), 18F-fluorodopa (F-dopa) and fluorodeoxyglucose… (More)

PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 113 consecutive… (More)
8003 Background: High-dose IFN (HDI) is associated with significant toxicity, and its clinical benefit as an adjuvant therapy for melanoma has been often debated. BC is associated with higher response rates than other regimens, but it has never been tested in an adjuvant setting. METHODS We conducted a prospective randomized phase III study comparing the… (More)
Rectus sheath haematoma is uncommon and frequently misdiagnosed. In this paper an incorrect diagnosis of splenic enlargement was made. Ultrasound and computerized tomography revealed a large rectus sheath haematoma.
