To analyse the morphological appearance of horseshoe kidneys (HKs) and crossed fused ectopia (CFE) and to assess the frequency and clinical significance of associated anomalies and diseases.
Normal kidney size and its influencing factors - a 64-slice MDCT study of 1.040 asymptomatic patients
Gender-specific normal values were indicated for these dimensions, the length and width in cross section, width of the renal pelvis, and parenchyma-renal pyelon ratio, and the most important influencing factors are BMI, height, gender, age, position of the kidneys, stenoses and number of renal arteries.

High-resolution ultrasound of peripheral neurogenic tumors
An overview of the histological subtypes of peripheral nerve tumors and their sonographic characteristics is given to help the sonographer arrive at the correct diagnosis. Expand
State-of-the-art HR-US imaging findings of the most frequent musculoskeletal soft-tissue tumors
It is shown that combined with clinical features, with information on tumor-localization and patient age, many musculoskeletal lesions may be successfully characterized by HR-US, and a mere morphologic assignment of some fibrous tumors and malignant lesions remains often impossible. Expand
Early Identification of Peritonitis by Peritoneal Cytokine Measurement
It is suggested that the estimation of the peritoneal cytokine levels might be an additional diagnostic tool that can support the early recognition of peritonitic complications in colorectal surgery. Expand
Systemic air embolism during percutaneous core needle biopsy of the lung: frequency and risk factors
If possible, the PCNB should be performed under local anesthesia, and patients should be positioned on the back in such a way that the tumor is lower than the left atrium, not however, the needle penetration depth through the lung. Expand

The association of chronic apical periodontitis and endodontic therapy with atherosclerosis
CAP correlated positively with the aortic atherosclerotic burden and CAP without endodontic treatment was found to be an important factor, not however apical radiolucencies in teeth with endodrontic treatment were irrelevant with respect to atherosclerosis. Expand
Iron-induced hypophosphatemia: an emerging complication
Treatment is guided by the severity of hypophosphatemia, and most patients will require oral or intravenous phosphate substitution, and future treatment options could involve therapeutic anti-FGF23 antibody (KRN23). Expand
