OBJECTIVE This study compared conventional thoracic and skeletal radiographs with 12-bit digitized images of the same radiographs in terms of subjective image quality and accuracy of diagnosis of subtle disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-six chest radiographs with normal findings, 48 chest radiographs with abnormal findings, 29 skeletal radiographs(More)
OBJECTIVE Differential air-fluid levels are two distinct air-fluid interfaces on horizontal-beam abdominal radiographs that are at different heights but within the same loop of bowel. Differential air-fluid levels have been considered by many to be strong evidence of mechanical bowel obstruction, but others have found this sign unreliable for(More)
OBJECTIVE Our study was a practice audit to evaluate the feasibility of using low-cost, consumer-oriented computer hardware and software to perform after-hours teleradiology consisting predominantly of CT images. MATERIALS AND METHODS We performed a prospective study of 137 consecutive emergent CT scans of the head obtained after business hours. The scans(More)
We report 5 cases of complete, or nearly complete, agenesis of the lumbar and sacral spine. In 1 case pregnancy was terminated at 23 weeks of gestation, and the others were livebirths. The surviving 4 patients were all infants of diabetic mothers. Imperforate anus was present in 2 of 4 liveborn patients and was suspected in the abortus. All liveborn cases(More)
Studies were conducted to examine glucose and amino acid metabolism by skeletal muscle isolated from rhesus monkeys before and sequentially after an episode of resuscitated hemorrhagic shock. After shock and reinfusion, the tissue exhibited decreased effect of insulin on glucose utilization increased leucine oxidation, and a reduced rate of leucine(More)
 Objective. Radiologists should be aware of the fact that many dermatologic conditions have associated skeletal abnormalities. This pictorial essay seeks to acquaint radiologists with these associations. Design. Twenty-four skin and bone conditions are portrayed and discussed under the headings of: disorders of the epidermis, disorders of the dermis,(More)
PURPOSE To determine if sonographic localization of the breast lumpectomy site is feasible and useful in boost planning. METHODS AND MATERIALS The operative beds following lumpectomy were localized by ultrasound in 22 patients (15-infiltrating ductal, 7-ductal carcinoma in situ; size: .4-2.0 cm). Twelve patients had two ultrasound examinations on(More)
We investigated sonographic changes to the breast after imaging guided core breast biopsy. We studied 31 breast lesions in 29 patients before, immediately after, and 2 to 9 days after core biopsy looking for hematomas. We found sonographic changes to the breast consistent with fluid collections after core biopsy in seven of 31 breast lesions (23%). Of the(More)
