The authors report on a case in which a carotid-cavernous fistula and an associated cavernous-carotid dissection developed in a 48-year-old man following a motor vehicle accident. The fistula was treated with coil embolization via a combined transarterial-transvenous approach. The dissected carotid artery segment was treated with a balloon-expandable stent,(More)
BACKGROUND The parotid gland is the mostly affected site among major salivary gland tumors in up to 85% of cases. Preoperative knowledge of the tumour nature is crucial since it influences the surgical procedure and patient's morbidity, especially the risk of facial nerve palsy. Ultrasonography is commonly used as the first line imaging modality for the(More)
Lemierre's syndrome is a rare clinical condition that generally develops secondary to oropharyngeal infection caused by Fusobacterium necrophorum, which is an anaerobic bacteria. A 62-year-old patient with diabetes mellitus presented with internal jugular vein and sigmoid sinus-transverse sinus thrombophlebitis, accompanying otitis media and mastoiditis(More)
Gall bladder (GB) may be found in a variety of abnormal positions. Most of them are due to arrested development of embryonic growth at different stages. A 63-year-old female patient was admitted to our radiology unit for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the liver for the lesions identified in abdominal ultrasonography (US) and computed tomography (CT).(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to diagnose the hypoxic impairment by Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), an advanced MR imaging technique, which could not be visualised by routine imaging methods in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). MATERIAL/METHODS 20 OSA patients and 5 controls were included in this prospective research. MRS was(More)
ÖZET Wilson's disease is a rarely seen, autosomal recessive disorder which leads to degenerative changes in the liver and brain due to cupper accumulation in them. A Wilson syndrome case who was diagnosed 5 years previously with classic symmetric basal ganglia and thalamus involvement in brain MR imaging and increased glutamate-glycine peaks, decreased(More)
PURPOSE To assess the most effective magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequence for the visualization of the 9th, 10th, and 11th cranial nerves (glossopharyngeal, vagus, and accessory nerves, respectively) in their intraforaminal/canalicular courses. MATERIALS AND METHODS Balanced fast-field echo (b-FFE), 3D-T2W DRIVE, T2W 2D TSE and post-contrast T1W MRI(More)
A 10 years old girl, was admitted to the intensive care unit with seizure, myotonic-clonic jerks in her hands, vomiting, respiratory failure and mild metabolic acidosis. Brain Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and proton MR spectroscopy(MRS) were performed.The MRI findings presented symmetric basal ganglia, brain stem, left thalamus and subthalamic nuclei(More)
BACKGROUND Our aim was to evaluate the efficacy of Diffusion-Weighted Imaging (DWI) and Apparent Diffusion Coefficient (ADC) mapping with different b-factors in visualisation of meniscal tears. MATERIAL/METHODS Seventy-four patients; 30 males and 44 females, 37 left and 37 right knees with meniscal tears were involved in this study. Eleven of them were(More)
