Certain abdominopelvic vascular structures may be compressed by adjacent anatomic structures or may cause compression of adjacent hollow viscera. Such compressions may be asymptomatic; when symptomatic, however, they can lead to a variety of uncommon syndromes in the abdomen and pelvis, including median arcuate ligament syndrome, May-Thurner syndrome,(More)
Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging at 3.0 T offers an improved signal-to-noise ratio compared with that at 1.5 T. However, the physics of high field strength also brings disadvantages, such as increases in the specific absorption rate, in magnetic field inhomogeneity effects, and in susceptibility artifacts. The use of 3.0-T MR imaging for abdominal(More)
OBJECTIVE The inflammatory subtype of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, is becoming one of the most important causes of chronic liver disease. In this article, we discuss the epidemiology, pathogenesis, and clinical and radiologic diagnosis of the subtypes of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. CONCLUSION We discuss the current(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this article is to discuss the CT findings that guide surgeons in deciding the feasibility of tumor excision in patients with locally advanced pancreatic head cancers. CONCLUSION Vascular resection as an adjunct to pancreaticoduodenectomy is increasingly used in pancreatic head cancer. As a result, the imaging criteria to(More)
OBJECTIVE Our study was aimed at review of the radiologic findings on oncocytic neoplasms to identify the features that differentiate these tumors from other adrenal neoplasms. CONCLUSION Benign and malignant oncocytic neoplasms could not be differentiated on the basis of the CT and MRI criteria used for differentiating adrenal cortical adenoma from(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the relationship between abdominal chemoradiation (CRT) for locally advanced cancers and bone mineral density (BMD) reduction in the vertebral spine. MATERIALS AND METHODS Data from 272 patients who underwent abdominal radiation therapy from January 1997 to May 2015 were retrospectively reviewed. Forty-two patients received computed(More)
UNLABELLED Awareness of cancer therapy-induced toxicities is important for all clinicians treating patients with cancer. Cancer therapy has evolved to include classic cytotoxic agents in addition to newer options such as targeted agents and catheter-directed chemoembolisation. Several adverse affects can result from the wide array of treatments including(More)
Urinary bladder cancer is a heterogeneous disease with a variety of pathologic features, cytogenetic characteristics, and natural histories. It is the fourth most common cancer in males and the tenth most common cancer in females. Urinary bladder cancer has a high recurrence rate, necessitating long-term surveillance after initial therapy. Early detection(More)
Fetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be used as a problem-solving tool when ultrasonic findings are equivocal. The role of fetal MRI has increased as obstetricians become aware of its potential and in utero therapy for anomalies becomes increasingly sophisticated. In this pictorial essay, we present a wide range of anomalies diagnosed or confirmed(More)
