Head and neck cancer (HNC) ranks as the 6(th) most common cancer worldwide, with the vast majority being head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). The majority of patients present with complicated locally advanced disease (typically stage III and IV) requiring multidisciplinary treatment plans with combinations of surgery, radiation therapy and(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Accurate diagnosis of Atypical Parkinsonian Syndromes (APS) is important due to differences in prognosis and management, but remains a challenge in the clinical setting. The purpose of our meta-analysis was to identify characteristic patterns of gray matter atrophy in Corticobasal Degeneration (CBD), Progressive Supranuclear Palsy(More)
Quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) is a novel MRI method for quantifying tissue magnetic property. In the brain, it reflects the molecular composition and microstructure of the local tissue. However, susceptibility maps reconstructed from single-orientation data still suffer from streaking artifacts which obscure structural details and small lesions.(More)
Multidetector computed tomography (CT) is the modality of choice for the evaluation of facial trauma because it helps accurately identify and characterize fractures and associated complications, thereby aiding timely clinical management and surgical planning. In particular, CT clearly depicts clinically relevant fractures in the eight osseous struts or(More)
Oral and oropharyngeal cancer (OPC) is a complex and often relentless malignancy prone to local invasion and dissemination. Despite advances in understanding of the disease and improved therapeutic interventions, it continues to be diagnosed at an advanced stage and the survival rate remains poor. The financial cost of treating OPC may be the highest of all(More)
Richter transformation is defined as a diffuse large cell lymphoma, occurring by transformation of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). We present a 64-year-old man with a history of CLL and a left parieto-occipital transtentorial extra-axial mass. The patient underwent CT and MR imaging, demonstrating a large dural-based mass with extracranial extension,(More)
BACKGROUND Cystic masses in the posterior fossa are ominous appearing lesions with broad differential diagnosis. Giant tumefactive perivascular spaces (GTPS) are rarely occurring pathological findings in the posterior fossa with unclear etiology and ill-defined long-term prognosis. CASE DESCRIPTION We present a case of a 15-year-old male diagnosed with(More)
Optic neuropathy involves loss of visual acuity, color vision, and visual field defect with a swollen, pale, anomalous, or normal optic disc seen on fundoscopy. Chiasmal disorders classically present with gradual onset of vision loss, bitemporal hemianopsia, and occasionally, endocrinopathy if the pituitary gland and/or hypothalamus are the causes or are(More)
Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) presenting in the neonatal period is very rare. In most cases, a self-limited cutaneous disease is the exclusive manifestation. We report an unusual case of neonatal LCH presenting with a large congenital solid neck mass without skin lesions. LCH should be considered in the differential diagnosis of solid masses in(More)
The facial nerve is affected by a wide variety of pathologies, including congenital, traumatic, inflammatory, and neoplastic conditions. Imaging plays a vital role in the diagnosis of these pathologies. The facial nerve has a complex anatomy and course. A strong grasp of normal facial nerve anatomy is essential for the radiologist to maintain a high level(More)
