MRI of paraspinal muscles in lumbar degenerative kyphosis patients and control patients with chronic low back pain.
TLDR
Evaluated paraspinal musculature should be considered when assessing MRI images of the lumbar spine and Measurement of the CSA, visual grading of fatty atrophy and the assessment of the fascia may help physician and radiologist reach a more confident diagnosis for the patients with clinically suspicious LDK. Expand
Correlation between magnetic resonance imaging and clinical impairment in patients with adhesive capsulitis
TLDR
MRI can be a useful technique to assess several clinical impairment measures in patients with adhesive capsulitis, and thickness and gadolinium enhancement of the joint capsule in the axillary recess on MRI are associated with limited ROM and pain. Expand
Can magnetic resonance imaging accurately predict concordant pain provocation during provocative disc injection?
TLDR
The proposed MR classification is useful to predict a disc with concordant pain, and disc protrusion with HIZ on MR imaging predicted positive discography in patients with discogenic low back pain. Expand
Correlation between Ultrasonography Findings and Electrodiagnostic Severity in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: 3D Ultrasonography
TLDR
The median nerve CSA as measured by 3D US could provide additional information about the severity of CTS, as indicated by the strong correlation with standard EDX findings. Expand
Ultrasound-guided radiofrequency neurotomy in cervical spine: sonoanatomic study of a new technique in cadavers.
TLDR
Ultrasound-guided cervical medial branch neurotomy was successfully performed in 30 of 34 cervical medial branches in five cadavers, however, before eliminating fluoroscopic validation of final needle tip positioning, the technique should be validated in symptomatic patients. Expand
Highly malignant soft tissue sarcoma of the extremity with a delayed diagnosis
TLDR
Contrary to general expectations, some soft tissue tumors that grow slowly are painless, and those that occur in superficial limbs may behighly malignant, and physicians should keep the possibility of highly malignant soft tissue sarcoma in mind. Expand
Brachial plexopathy following herpes zoster infection: Two cases with MRI findings
TLDR
MRI findings in the present cases suggest that, in addition to electrophysiological studies, MRI of the brachial plexus could provide valuable information for evaluating the location and extent of lesions and for understanding the pathophysiological mechanisms of zoster brachIAL plexopathy. Expand
Evaluation of the Chondromalacia Patella Using a Microscopy Coil: Comparison of the Two-Dimensional Fast Spin Echo Techniques and the Three-Dimensional Fast Field Echo Techniques
TLDR
The iw-FS-FSE images obtained with a microscopy coil show best diagnostic performance among the 2D and 3D GRE images for evaluating the chondromalacia patella. Expand
Patellofemoral instability in children: T2 relaxation times of the patellar cartilage in patients with and without patellofemoral instability and correlation with morphological grading of cartilage
TLDR
In patellofemoral instability, patellar cartilage damage occurs across the entire cartilage with the highest T2 values at the apex, which implies an important role for T2 maps in differentiating between normal and low-grade cartilageDamage. Expand
Ultrasound elastography of lateral epicondylosis: clinical feasibility of quantitative elastographic measurements.
TLDR
Patients with lateral epicondylosis had significantly lower strain ratios in their common extensor tendon origins, and ultrasound elastography using quantitative strain ratio measurements could be a promising supplementary method to evaluate tendon abnormalities in lateral epicONDylosis. Expand
