Here we report the first case of a Korean infant with a cloverleaf-shaped craniosynostosis, in which the diagnosis of Beare-Stevenson syndrome was suspected upon observation of the typical morphological features. This infant exhibited craniofacial anomalies, ocular proptosis, cutis gyrata, acanthosis nigricans, prominent umbilical stump, furrowed palms and(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility of thyroid shielding by measuring radiation dose, CT attenuation, and noise of superficial neck structures during CT examination. SUBJECTS AND METHODS We divided 84 patients without abnormalities seen on CT into two groups depending on whether shielding with a cotton spacer was applied(More)
In infants with febrile urinary tract infection (UTI), the accurate rapid diagnosis of acute pyelonephritis (APN) would be valuable because early aggressive treatment reduces the risk of renal scarring. The objective of the study was to evaluate whether rapid plasma neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) assay could be used as a diagnostic(More)
AIM To evaluate the maximal-outer-diameter (MOD) and the maximal-mural-thickness (MMT) of the appendix in children with acute appendicitis and to determine their optimal cut-off values to diagnose acute appendicitis. METHODS In total, 164 appendixes from 160 children between 1 and 17 years old (84 males, 76 females; mean age, 7.38 years) were examined by(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Ultrasound has been used successfully to differentiate benign and malignant breast lesions. The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between ultrasound and prognostic indicators in breast cancer such as histological type, tumor grade, and biological markers. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ultrasound findings (shape, margin,(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to evaluate the incidence and spectrum of renal complications and of extrarenal diseases and syndromes in children with horseshoe kidney (HSK). MATERIALS AND METHODS The clinical data and imaging studies of 380 subjects (median age, 2.8 years) diagnosed with HSK over a 24-year period were reviewed: 366 children and(More)
PURPOSE To compare intravoxel incoherent motion diffusion weight imaging IVIM-DWI MRI with DMSA for the evaluation of cortical defect in pediatric upper urinary tract infection (UTI) patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-three kidneys of 22 pediatric patients with the first episode of febrile upper UTI were evaluated. DWI using IVIM model was performed(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the distinctive computed tomographic(CT) features of pyogenic liver abscess (PLA) caused by Klebsiella pneumoniae (KLA). METHODS 114 PLA patients (62 men, 52 women, age range 25-89 years, mean age 60.9 years) with positive yield of blood or pus cultures were divided into 2 groups; KLA group (n = 58) and non-KLA group (n = 56). We(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the relation between clinical outcomes and nodal features on computed tomography (CT) in cervical tuberculous lymphadenitis (CTBL) before and after antituberculous chemotherapy. METHODS Fifty-six patients with CTBL underwent CT before and after a 6- or 12-month course of standard chemotherapy. Three radiologists evaluated the(More)
AIM To identify computed tomography (CT) findings that are associated with the presence of bacteremia in patients with acute pyelonephritis (APN) due to Escherichia coli (E. coli). METHODS The clinical data and contrast-enhanced CT findings of 128 patients who were diagnosed with APN due to E. coli and showed renal abnormality on contrast-enhanced CT(More)
