The features of computed tomography (CT) in 5 patients with hydatid disease of the urinary tract are described. The diagnosis of hydatid disease was based on the demonstration of unilocular or multilocular cysts with well defined walls which enhanced with contrast, which were often calcified and which contained daughter cysts within the large parent cyst.(More)
Plasma growth hormone (GH) was determined in samples obtained hourly from 1000 h to 0700 h before, and after a 3 week course of "prophylactic" cranial irradiation, in ten leukemic children who had no clinical or laboratory evidence of central nervous system involvement. The mean per hour value of GH prior to irradiation (4.1 +/- 2.4 ng/ml) was similar to(More)
Radiotherapy (RT) has long been used in the treatment of acromegaly, but confusion regarding the definition of biochemical cure has hampered interpretation of previous reports on the outcome of this treatment. In the present study we present additional data using the currently accepted criteria of biochemical cure in a large group of patients followed up by(More)
8 thalassaemic patients with complications due to pressure by heterotopic marrow on the spinal cord, the vertebral column, or the airways were given radiotherapy. Small doses of radiotherapy (10 to 26 Gy) relieved symptoms in all of them. 3 of the patients were followed-up radiographically. In 2 the mass of heterotopic marrow regressed completely and in the(More)
This is a double-blind study in which 14 randomly selected patients treated for lung cancer by irradiation, were receiving indomethacin, while 14 patients treated also by irradiation served as controls. The purpose of the study was to investigate a possible protective effect of the drug in irradiation esophagitis. The esophagus was included in the(More)
In order to evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) in spontaneous subarachnoid haemorrhage, 14 patients with recent haemorrhage verified by CT or lumbar puncture were investigated with both selective intra-arterial digital subtraction angiography (IA-DSA) and MRA by two independent teams, each having the same(More)
Nine patients with history of hydatid disease have been examined by CT. Localization of the hydatid cysts in the pelvis was established by anatomical criteria. Occasionally, the transverse plane can be confusing for the precise localization of a lesion. A central location, close to the boundaries of the bladder and rectum, can define peritoneal location.(More)
