PURPOSE To compare the performance of pelvic phased-array (PPA) coils and integrated endorectal PPA coils in evaluation of local extent of prostate cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy-one men underwent magnetic resonance (MR) imaging within 3 weeks of radical prostatectomy. MR findings of tumor, extracapsular extension, seminal vesicle invasion, nodal(More)
RATIONALE Pulmonary nodules are common incidental findings, but information about their incidence in the era of computed tomography (CT) is lacking. OBJECTIVES To examine recent trends in pulmonary nodule identification. METHODS We used electronic health records and natural language processing to identify members of an integrated health system who had(More)
BACKGROUND Characterization of glenohumeral deformities secondary to brachial plexus birth palsy with plain radiography is difficult because the glenohumeral joint does not completely ossify until puberty. The purpose of this study was to compare the findings on magnetic resonance imaging and arthrography with those on arthroscopy to better understand the(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate, with intraoperative arthrography, joint morphology in children undergoing surgical treatment of residual paralysis of the shoulder resulting in brachial plexus birth palsy and to correlate the morphology with the degree of passive external rotation. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 64 children (age range, 7 months to 13 years 6 months), an(More)
OBJECTIVES:Pancreatic cystic neoplasms (PCNs) are being detected with increased frequency. The aims of this study were to determine the incidence of malignancy and develop an imaging-based system for prediction of malignancy in PCN.METHODS:We conducted a retrospective cohort study of patients ≥18 years of age with confirmed PCN from January 2005 to December(More)
Acute liver failure (ALF) is characterized by sudden liver injury without underlying chronic liver disease. Excluding underlying cirrhosis in these patients is often difficult and liver biopsy may be impractical. We review the imaging appearance of acute hepatic failure in patients who underwent transplant and correlate these findings with clinical,(More)
INTRODUCTION Lung nodules are commonly encountered in clinical practice, yet little is known about their management in community settings. An automated method for identifying patients with lung nodules would greatly facilitate research in this area. METHODS Using members of a large, community-based health plan from 2006 to 2010, we developed a method to(More)
