PURPOSE This study evaluated morphological features of developmental venous anomalies (DVAs) based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings. The study also evaluated the factors affecting the visibility of DVAs on MRI. METHODS We reviewed contrast-enhanced MRIs of 75 patients with DVA. The images were selected from 1,165 consecutive cranial MRIs. The… (More)
Osteoid osteoma is a small, benign osteoblastic tumor consisting of a highly vascularized nidus of connective tissue surrounded by sclerotic bone. Three-quarters of osteoid osteomas are located in the long bones, and only 7-12% in the vertebral column. The classical clinical presentation of spinal osteoid osteoma is that of painful scoliosis. Other clinical… (More)
BACKGROUND Budd-Chiari syndrome, which is a rare complication of Behcet's disease, carries a high mortality rate. OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to present our long-term follow up experience with patients suffering from Budd-Chiari syndrome due to Behcet's disease. METHODS The records of 402 patients with Behcet's disease were evaluated… (More)
PURPOSE Intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) is one of the most serious and lethal complications of anticoagulants with a reported incidence of 5-18.5 %. Computed tomographic (CT) findings, should be carefully studied because early diagnosis and treatment of oral anticoagulant use-associated hematomas are vitally important. In the present study, CT findings of… (More)
Chronic-contained aortic aneurysm rupture with vertebral erosion is a rare entity with fatal complications. Multidetector computed tomography (CT) angiography is an important diagnostic method for the evaluation of the aortic aneurysms, their complications, and also the relationship between aneurysm and branching vessels and adjacent structures. We present… (More)
AIM The aim of this study was to try to find parametric ratios for the diagnosis and pathophysiology of carpal tunnel syndrome using MR. MATERIAL AND METHODS Dominant side wrist MRI examinations of 27 female carpal tunnel patients and 21 normal females were compared. The carpal tunnel contents area / carpal tunnel cross section area ratio was defined,… (More)
Carotid artery dissection is usually unilateral. Rarely bilateral forms can be seen. Recent studies have shown the efficacy of computed tomography angiography (CTA) in the diagnosis of carotid dissection. Herein we report a case with bilateral carotid artery dissection diagnosis and follow-up which was carried out using mainly CTA.
