BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ-D) may be associated with the onset of neuropathic pain. The purpose of this study was to prospectively assess if, at the open-mouth position, the distance between the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disk and the mandibular nerve is shorter in patients with TMJ-D and neuropathic pain vs patients(More)
A 51-year-old man presented at our department 2 days after the onset of a painful mass in the perineum and dysuria. Diagnosis of partial priapism secondary to proximal segmental corpora cavernosa thrombosis was made through colordoppler ultrasound (CDU) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Treatment consisted of administration of systemic anticoagulation(More)
AIM Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) accuracy in prostate cancer (PCa) diagnosis in men submitted to saturation prostate biopsy (SPBx) was evaluated. MATERIALS AND METHODS From June 2011 to December 2012, 78 patients (median 63 years) underwent repeat SPBx (median 28 cores). Multiparametric MRI using a 3 Tesla pelvic phased-array coil was performed before(More)
The detection rate for significant prostate cancer of mMRI/TRUS fusion targeted biopsy versus saturation prostate biopsy was prospectively evaluated in men enrolled in active surveillance (AS) protocol. From May 2013 to January 2015, 40 men aged 66 years (median) with very low-risk PCa were enrolled in an AS protocol, and eligible criteria were: life(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to evaluate multiparametric pelvic magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) accuracy in prostate cancer (PCa) diagnosis. PATIENTS AND METHODS From June 2011 to March 2014, 100 patients (median age, 64 years) with negative digital rectal examination underwent repeat transperineal saturation biopsy (SPBx; median, 29 cores)(More)
High-resolution multidetector computed tomography with multiplanar reformations and 3-D postprocessing often provides the detail necessary for preoperative assessment of facial injuries. Maxillofacial fractures are classified in the following manner: upper face fractures, midface fractures (the most frequent), Le Fort fractures, and lower face or mandible(More)
AIM To evaluate the accuracy of multi-parametric pelvic magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) in diagnosing prostate cancer (PCa) in men with initial biopsy microfocal cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS From January 2012 to July 2014, 40 patients before undergoing repeat transperineal saturation prostate biopsy (SPBx; median, 28 cores) for the presence of a(More)
INTRODUCTION Multiparametric pelvic magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) accuracy in prostate cancer (PCa) diagnosis was evaluated. MATERIALS AND METHODS From June 2011 to December 2013, 168 patients (median 65 years) with negative digital rectal examination underwent repeat transperineal saturation biopsy (SPBx; median 28 cores) for persistently high or(More)
INTRODUCTION The detection rate for significant prostate cancer of extended vs saturation vs mMRI/TRUS fusion biopsy was prospectively evaluated in men enrolled in active surveillance (AS) protocol. Mterials and methods: From May 2013 to September 2016 75 men aged 66 years (median) with very low risk PCa were enrolled in an AS protocol and elegible criteria(More)
AIM To evaluate the accuracy of multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging apparent diffusion coefficient (mpMRI ADC) in the diagnosis of clinically significant prostate cancer (PCa). PATIENTS AND METHODS From January 2016 to December 2016, 44 patients who underwent radical prostatectomy for PCa and mpMRI lesions suggestive of cancer were retrospectively(More)
