There is a wide spectrum of disease among patients with plasma cell myeloma. A small fraction have a localized plasmacytoma of bone that requires specialized techniques for accurate staging, followed by local radiotherapy that may be curative in some patients. Other patients with multiple myeloma may be free of symptoms and the disease is recognized by(More)
PURPOSE In recent years, increasing numbers of patients with asymptomatic multiple myeloma have been diagnosed by chance and followed without any therapy. Those at risk for early or late disease progression should be distinguished in order to prevent complications. This study defined prognostic factors that would predict the need for early treatment.

We present a rare case of primary renal carcinoid tumor that metastasized to the liver and kidneys. The tumor and the metastases were hypovascular angiographically, did not enhance on CT, and were hyperechoic with a hypoechoic halo on ultrasound. A similar pattern has been seen in a few cases previously reported in the literature.
We retrospectively reviewed MR images of 32 histologically proven extracranial nerve sheath tumors (NSTs). There were 23 benign (10 neurofibromas, 13 schwannomas) and 9 malignant NSTs. On T1-weighted images (T1WIs) tumors were isointense or slightly hyperintense to muscle. On T2-weighted images (T2WIs) (11 lesions) and enhanced T1WIs (1 intraspinal lesion),(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the clinical improvement and radiographically monitor the effect of local radiotherapy in conjunction with disodium pamidronate (DP) on metastatic osteolytic disease. METHODS AND MATERIALS Thirty-three patients with osteolytic metastasis from advanced breast cancer received radiotherapy with a 6-MV linear accelerator up to a dose of 30(More)
To evalutate the clinical benefit and mainly to monitor quantitatively the recalcification of osteolytic lesions after radiotherapy with or without intravenous infusion of disodium pamidronate (DP) in different doses. Patients and Methods: 42 patients with solitary lytic metastasis in weight-bearing bones were studied. Primary endpoints were the mean value(More)
Peripheral neuroepitheliomas should be included in the differential diagnosis of a soft-tissue tumor in the extremities or chest wall, especially in young adolescents. MRI provides useful information as to the extent of the tumor and relationship with adjacent structures, although it may not differentiate neuroepitheliomas from other, more common,(More)
