In order to determine the value of quantitative CT of the orbit in patients with Graves' disease, we clinically examined 174 orbits of 87 patients with Graves' disease and evaluated them by CT in respect to the density and size of the extraocular muscles, the globe position and the width of the optic nerve-sheath complex. We also determined the normal(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this work was to establish criteria for the diameters of normal extraocular muscles and superior ophthalmic vein and width of the optic nerve-sheath complex, to determine normal globe position as seen on MRI, and to investigate the effects of age and sex on these structures. METHOD Diameters of the extraocular muscles and superior(More)
OBJECTIVE The purposes of this study were to establish criteria for the diameters of normal extraocular muscles, to determine the normal position of the globe as revealed by CT, and to investigate the effects of age and sex on these structures. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Diameters of extraocular muscles, distance from the interzygomatic line to the posterior(More)
Riedel's thyroiditis is a rare disorder of unknown etiology and may be seen isolated or as a part of multifocal fibrosclerosis. It is important to distinguish Riedel's thyroiditis from thyroid carcinoma. Reports about imaging features of Riedel's thyroiditis are limited in the radiologic literature. We describe herein CT and MR imaging features of Riedel's(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the interobserver and intraobserver variations in sonographic measurement of thyroid volume in children. DESIGN Thyroid volumes of 30 healthy children were measured by three separate observers. Additionally each observer measured thyroid volumes of ten separate children three times. METHODS The data were used to assess(More)
AIMS To evaluate alterations in orbital blood flow parameters and their correlations with extraocular muscle enlargement, proptosis, and intraocular pressure in patients with Graves' disease. METHODS In this multicentre study blood flow parameters in the ophthalmic artery, superior ophthalmic vein, central retinal artery and vein were determined by colour(More)
AIMS AND BACKGROUND We aimed to investigate the factors affecting the interval from the beginning of the symptoms until diagnosis and treatment in patients with lung cancer. METHODS Records of 119 lung cancer patients diagnosed in our pulmonary diseases clinic between 2004 and 2006 were evaluated retrospectively. Demographic data, histopathological tumor(More)
Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is still a serious life-threatening disease, in which the etiologic agent cannot be identified in more than 50% of patients despite advanced diagnostic methods. The most commonly used methods in the determination of CAP etiology are culture and serological tests. Since early and accurate therapy reduces the mortality in(More)
