The Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound convened a panel of specialists from a variety of medical disciplines to come to a consensus on the management of thyroid nodules identified with thyroid ultrasonography (US), with particular focus on which nodules should be subjected to US-guided fine needle aspiration and which thyroid nodules need not be(More)
The efficacy of extended-release niacin (niacin ER) on lipoprotein subclasses was evaluated in patients with primary hypercholesterolemia using a proton nuclear magnetic resonance method. Paired plasma samples collected at baseline and after 12 weeks' treatment with niacin ER 1,000 (n = 21) or 2,000 (n = 20) mg/day or placebo (n = 19) were available for 60(More)
The term thyrotoxicosis refers to the clinical syndrome of increased systemic metabolism that results when the serum concentrations of free thyroxine, free triiodothyronine, or both are elevated. The term hyperthyroidism refers to overactivity of the thyroid gland with a resultant increase in thyroid hormone synthesis and release into the systemic(More)
PURPOSE To determine if stunning can be seen with a 185-MBq (5-mCi) dose of iodine 131 (131I) at diagnostic whole-body scanning and, if stunning is seen, determine if there is any 131I therapeutic efficacy. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective review of findings involving 166 patients who underwent thyroidectomy for differentiated thyroid carcinoma was(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS To evaluate the utility of positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) for staging the neck in the preoperative setting by comparing it to both CT/magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and pathologic staging. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective review. METHODS Seventy-one patients with initial diagnosis of head and neck squamous(More)
Because of the original observation by Altschul et al., that nicotinic acid (niacin), not nicotinamide, in pharmacologic doses lowered human serum cholesterol levels, an avalanche of reports have been published over the past 45 years on the plasma lipid-regulating properties of this drug and its beneficial cardiovascular effects. A myriad of studies that(More)
PURPOSE To determine the diagnostic performance of functional magnetic resonance cholangiography (fMRC) for the evaluation of anatomic and functional biliary disorders. MATERIALS AND METHODS At 1.5 T, 39 MR examinations with conventional MRC and mangafodipir trisodium-enhanced fMRC were retrospectively reviewed by three observers who recorded anatomic(More)
Fifteen patients complaining of chronic heel pain underwent three-phase Tc-99m MDP bone scintigraphy. Ten patients demonstrated abnormal scan findings consistent with plantar fasciitis (PF) and had responded to conventional therapy. Two patients were found to have calcaneal stress fractures, and one patient demonstrated a calcaneal spur that required no(More)
