We describe the technique of percutaneous vertebroplasty using methyl methacrylate. We injected under the guidance of CT and fluoroscopy a group of 10 patients with back pain caused by a variety of vertebral lesions including severe osteoporosis (n = 4), hemangiomas (n = 5) and metastasis (n = 1). Over varying periods of follow-up (ranging from 4 to 17(More)
MR findings are reported in three patients presenting mannosidosis. Among a family of 8 children, 4 presented typical clinical and biological abnormalities related to mannosidosis. Brain MR examinations including sagittal T1 and axial T2 sections were obtained in three patients of this family (one 25-year-old male, one 34-year-old female, and one(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe and evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of CT-guided radiofrequency neurolysis (RFN) vs. local blockade of the stellate ganglion in the management of chronic refractory type I complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) of the upper limb. METHODS Sixty-seven patients were included in this retrospective study between 2000 and 2011. All(More)
Intracranial alveolar echinococcosis is uncommon. We report a patient with right frontal lobe and palpebral lesions secondary to a primary hepatic focus with secondary lesion in the lung. The intracranial and palpebral cystic masses were totally removed and both proved to be alveolar hydatid cysts. An unusual feature in this case is CT and MRI demonstration(More)
The authors report their experience of CT and MRI imaging in the study of suprasellar pathologies. The problems concerning the differential diagnosis between meningioma developed in the suprasellar region and pituitary tumour with suprasellar extension are discussed and illustrated; the demonstration of bone abnormalities (blistering, hyperostosis) is(More)
A thoracic intradural arachnoid cyst presenting as an intradural extramedullary mass highly suggestive of psammoma on myelogram and myelo-CT is reported in a 34-year-old female. High densities of the cyst were related to collection of contrast media within the cyst. However MR examination of the thoracic spinal cord including sagittal T1 (without and with(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Transfontanellar contrast enhanced ultrasound (TCEUS) in infants with neurological diseases has not been previously reported. Thus, the objective of our study was to describe the imaging findings of transfontanellar contrast enhanced ultrasound (TCEUS) performed in various neurological conditions in infants and to compare the findings(More)
When it occurs bilaterally, disinsertion of the quadriceps tendons may suggest quadricipital amyotrophy syndrome. Questioning and physical examination of the locomotor system usually lead to a diagnosis of mechanical lesion involving the extensor mechanism of the knee. If necessary, this diagnosis can be confirmed by ultrasonography and MRI of the knee. A(More)
INTRODUCTION The sphenopalatine ganglion (SPN) has been proven to be involved in various types of facial pain syndromes. Management of these cranio-facial pain syndromes can be challenging, and existing specific treatments are sometimes inefficient and may fail. The purpose of this study is to describe and evaluate alcohol SPN in the management of(More)
