PURPOSE To analyze whether shadowing and other ultrasound (US) features were helpful for distinguishing angiomyolipoma (AML) from renal cell carcinoma (RCC). MATERIALS AND METHODS US images were reviewed of 49 patients with RCC and 35 patients with AML. Each tumor was evaluated for size, location, echogenicity, homogeneity, shadowing, hypoechoic rim, and(More)
OBJECTIVE Our objective was to assess the clinical usefulness and interobserver variability of the Bosniak classification scheme for characterizing a series of pathologically proven cystic renal lesions imaged with CT. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy pathologically proven cystic renal masses (38 benign, 32 malignant) in 46 patients were reviewed(More)
Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the most common malignant tumor involving the kidney. Determining the subtypes of renal cell carcinoma is among the major goals of preoperative radiological work-up. Among all modalities, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has several advantages, such as inherent soft tissue contrast, detection of lipid and blood products, and(More)
Eight cases of well-differentiated, intramedullary osteosarcoma were studied. In three cases, the lesions previously had been diagnosed, pathologically and radiologically, as benign. The distal femur was the most frequent site. Radiographically, the tumor margins were poorly defined in five cases and were well defined in three. In seven cases, the bone(More)
PURPOSE Novel imaging modalities are needed to detect occult metastatic disease in bladder carcinoma. Patients with regional lymphatic spread could be targeted for neoadjuvant chemotherapy, and patients with distant metastatic disease could be spared the unnecessary morbidity of radical cystectomy. Herein, we report a prospective study of positron emission(More)
Primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET), the second most common type of sarcoma in the first two decades of life, rarely presents as an organ-based neoplasm. Rather, it is seen typically in the soft tissues of the chest wall and paraspinal region. We report a case of primary PNET of the kidney in a 17-year-old girl who presented with abdominal pain,(More)
OBJECTIVE We evaluated a variety of internal architectural features in ruptured and nonruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms to determine whether any features are associated more frequently with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms. These features may be useful in identifying subtle ruptures when no obvious retroperitoneal hematoma is present and may be(More)
This article reviews important aspects of female pelvic anatomy with particular emphasis on the structures important for pelvic organ support and urinary control. The pelvis and supporting structures, the pelvic floor, and the relationships of the pelvic organs are described and illustrated by MR imaging.
