BACKGROUND Amiodarone is an iodine-rich drug widely used for the management of various arrhythmias, but its clinical utility is usually limited by the high frequency of numerous side effects, most frequently disturbance of thyroid function. MATERIAL/METHODS The present study presents the laboratory tests, color flow Doppler sonography (CFDS) findings,(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to establish the role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome (MRKHS). MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixteen female MRKHS patients (mean age, 19.4 years; range, 11-39 years) were studied using MRI. Two experienced radiologists evaluated all the images in consensus to assess the(More)
PURPOSE Restrictions with computed tomography angiography (CTA) regarding the visualization of arteries near the skull base are well known. Today, the gold standard for overcoming this is the matched mask bone elimination method. Worldwide use of this method is limited since it requires advanced imaging physics and software. A more simple method was(More)
The purpose of this study was to describe the frequency of the variations in the branching pattern of the aortic arch (AA) according to multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) imaging findings. MDCT images of 1136 consecutive patients who had undergone imaging of the chest were retrospectively examined. Eleven different branching patterns were observed. A(More)
PURPOSE In this study, the pulmonary arterial computed tomography obstruction index ratio, which indicates the degree and extent of thrombotic arterial occlusion, was calculated in cases with pulmonary thromboembolism. Our objectives were to investigate the value of this index for the identification of cases with massive pulmonary thromboembolism and to(More)
Stannosis is a non-fibrotic form of pneumoconiosis in which tin-oxide is accumulated in pulmonary parenchyma as a result of inhalation of tin-oxide (stannic oxide) dust and fume. Chest radiograph shows numerous small very dense nodules in both lungs. Although radiological findings of stannosis were apparent, the patients were clinically in good condition,(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)
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)
The configurations of cerebral veins and dural venous sinuses differ not only between individuals, but also between the two brain hemispheres of an individual, making the anatomical classification of the cerebral veins difficult. We evaluated the superior dural venous sinuses and classified their types and variations using magnetic resonance venography(More)
BACKGROUND Moyamoya syndrome associated with protein S deficiency is rarely encountered and is usually reported in paediatric cases with cerebral ischaemia. CASE REPORT A 32-year-old woman had symptoms of sudden-onset severe headache, projectile vomiting, impaired consciousness, and slight neck stiffness. The computed tomography scan of her brain showed(More)
