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)
PURPOSE The purpose of this work was to describe the various imaging findings in craniovertebral tuberculosis and the importance of imaging in treatment in these patients. METHOD A retrospective review of MR and CT scans in 29 patients with craniovertebral tuberculosis was performed. The images were reviewed, paying special attention to both bony (skull(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Pulsatile tinnitus (PT), a common disorder, can be caused by a variety of otologic and vascular lesions. Various imaging modalities, including CT, MR imaging and angiography, and conventional angiography, have been used in the assessment of PT. Ideally, a single imaging study to evaluate for the largest variety of etiologies would be(More)
Cerebral microbleeds have emerged as an important new imaging marker of cerebral small vessel disease. With the development of MRI techniques that are exquisitely sensitive to paramagnetic blood products, such as T2*-weighted gradient-recalled echo and susceptibility-weighted sequences, microbleeds have been detected in ever-increasing numbers of patients(More)
Conventional imaging techniques are insensitive to liver fibrosis. This study assesses the diagnostic accuracy of MR elastography (MRE) stiffness values and the ratio of phosphomonoesters (PME)/phosphodiesters (PDE) measured using 31P spectroscopy against histological fibrosis staging. The local research ethics committee approved this prospective, blinded(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively determine in an animal model whether an ionic gadolinium (Gd(3+)) chelate conjugate of the C2A domain of synaptotagmin I can be used with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging to detect tumor cell death noninvasively in vivo. MATERIALS AND METHODS Animal experiments were approved by a local ethics review committee. Gd(3+) chelates and(More)
PURPOSE To describe the imaging findings of bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) with emphasis on early magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings. MATERIALS AND METHODS The medical records and computed tomography, MRI, and bone scintigraphy images of 5 female and 1male patients (n = 6) between the ages of 49 and 79 years (mean age, 70(More)
Penicillin, the drug of choice in tetanus, may potentiate the effect of tetanus toxin by inhibiting the type-A (GABAA) receptor for gamma-amino-n-butyric acid. Metronidazole has therefore been suggested as an alternative. Intramuscular benzathine penicillin (1.2 million units as a single dose; N=56), enteral metronidazole (600 mg every 6 h for 10 days;(More)
We reviewed the pattern of involvement of the calvarium by tuberculosis (TB) in five patients and the role of imaging in its management. Four patients presented with localised scalp swelling and one with generalized seizures. Radiographs revealed lucent lesions with minimal surrounding sclerosis in the frontal (2), parietal (2) and occipital (1) bones. CT(More)
