BACKGROUND High resolution computed tomography (HRCT) is highly efficient in demonstrating the anatomy of the temporal bone. This study evaluates its application to temporal bone fractures (TBF). METHODS We collected data from 26 cases of TBF in the past two years. All cases underwent HRCT examination. The clinical information was reviewed and correlated(More)
BACKGROUND High-resolution, real time, intraoperative ultrasonography (IOUS) has been used in a number of cases in our neurosurgical department to identify, localize and characterize intracranial abnormalities. We compare the images of IOUS with those of computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in order to enhance our experience and(More)
Olivary hypertrophy (OH) is not a primary lesion but, rather, develops as a lesion of the Guillain-Morraret triangle, which is composed of the contralateral dentate nucleus, the ipsilateral red nucleus and the ipsilateral inferior olivary nucleus. OH is usually accompanied by palatal myoclonus or other involuntary movements such as extremity myorhythmia.(More)
BACKGROUND Fat within the cerebral falx is commonly encountered in our daily practice but has never been characterized and reported. The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence of fat within the cerebral falx and to identify its clinical features. METHODS The cerebral falx was prospectively imaged in 1,570 consecutive brain computed(More)
A 71-year-old woman had arachnoid granulations found in the straight and transverse sinuses on computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The arachnoid granulations appeared as low-density masses on CT. They gave low signals on T1-weighted MR images and high signals on T2-weighted images. Arachnoid granulations are usually of no(More)
Giant cell reparative granuloma (GCRG) is an infrequent benign lesion with undetermined etiopathogenesis affecting the maxillary and mandibular bone and, rarely, the skull. It is also extremely rare in the sphenoid bone. GCRG is usually diagnosed by histologic examination of bone lesions. We report a case of GCRG originating from the sphenoid bone.(More)
This retrospective cohort study investigated the progression risk of sequential complication in Asian type 2 diabetes (T2D) patients using the Taiwan Pay-for-Performance Diabetes Registry and claim data from November 2003 to February 2009. 226,310 adult T2D patients without complication were followed from diagnosis to complications, including myocardial(More)
Aberrant cervical carotid artery is an uncommon anomaly. Because this anomaly can lie in close proximity to the midline of the posterior part of the pharynx, it poses a significant risk during both major pharyngeal tumor resection and less extensive procedures such as tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy and palatopharyngoplasty. Five cases of aberrant cervical(More)
