We report on Sudeck's dystrophy in a 69-year-old woman who complained of recurrent pain and local inflammation in the right hand. Magnetic resonance (MR) using T1- and T2-weighted images before and after intravenous administration of gadolinium diethylene-triamine pentaacetic acid demonstrated soft-tissue swelling, bone signal intensity changes in some(More)
The objective of this study was to correlate chronic medial knee pain at rest and during exercise with bone scintigraphic uptake, bone marrow edema pattern (BMEP), cartilage lesions, meniscal tears, and collateral ligament pathologies on magnetic resonance MR imaging (MRI). Fifty consecutive patients with chronic medial knee pain seen at our institute were(More)
The continuous development of highly sensitive clinical imaging increased the detection of focal lesions of the liver. These accidentally detected liver tumors without liver-specific symptoms such as cholestasis have been named "incidentalomas." Diagnostic tools such as sonography, computed tomography, or magnetic resonance imaging are used increasingly in(More)
Fifty seven patients with histologically proven cyst-like lesions of the mandible are reviewed. The importance of combining radiographic with scintigraphic imaging is stressed. These two imaging modalities are complementary in demonstrating both the biological activity and the extent of the lesion. In osteomyelitis the bone scan, which is more sensitive(More)
Melorheostosis is a linear bone dysplasia of unknown origin that may be associated with soft-tissue alterations. Although any part of the skeleton can be affected, this condition is rarely observed in the craniofacial region. Only seven cases of melorheostosis with craniofacial involvement have been reported and cranial manifestation only is even rarer. To(More)
While dialysis patients survive renal failure for years and even decades, multiple morphologic alterations take place in their kidneys. One of these (so to speak) "postmortem" changes is the formation of secondary renal cysts. A patient with end stage renal failure due to amyloidosis is described who was dialysed at home for 9 years. Intravenous pyelography(More)
