PURPOSE The objective of this study was to determine the cross-sectional area changes of the paraspinal, isolated multifidus, quadratus lumborum, psoas, and the gluteus maximus muscles with CT in patients with chronic low back pain. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this study, we evaluated 36 patients with chronic low back pain and 34 healthy volunteers. The mean(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to compare the diagnostic performance of transvaginal sonography (TVS), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and intraoperative frozen section in the assessment of myometrial invasion and to evaluate intratumoral blood flow in any myometrial invasion with transvaginal Color Doppler ultrasonography (TV-CDU). METHODS This prospective study(More)
We report two cases of primary cardiac hydatid cyst in which hydatid materials caused recurrent embolizations in pulmonary arteries and pulmonary parenchyma. Cardiac hydatid cysts may stay asymptomatic for a long time, until they reveal themselves being perforated into cardiac chambers and/or pulmonary artery or systemic circulation. The role of imaging(More)
Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) reliably demonstrate typical features of schwannomas or neurofibromas in the vast majority of dumbbell lesions responsible for neural foraminal widening. However, a large variety of unusual lesions which are causes of neural foraminal widening can also be encountered in the spinal neural foramen.(More)
INTRODUCTION We aimed to show the diagnostic performance of magnetic resonance imaging by comparing T2-weighted images and dynamic 3D MR images in the assessment of myometrial and cervical invasion by endometrial carcinoma. METHODS This prospective study included 53 women consecutively diagnosed with endometrial carcinoma. The subjects were evaluated by(More)
Ectopic thyroid gland (ETG) is a rare entity and can be seen anywhere in the route of descending gland. It is much rarer when encountered away from the midline. Dual ETG is such a rare entity that only a few have been reported in the literature. ETGs not only cause thyroid dysfunction, most commonly hypothyroidism and rarely hyperthyroidism, but also(More)
AIM To investigate the value of virtual cystoscopy using contrast material to fill the bladder during routine abdominopelvic computed tomography (CT) examinations for the detection of bladder tumours. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-three consecutive patients (25 men and eight women; are range 51-82 years; mean age+/-SD, 65+/-7 years) who had painless(More)
A potential hazard in midline posterior fossa craniectomy may be the injury of vertebral artery. That's why vertebral artery evaluation prior to surgery may prevent dangerous complications. Advancements in multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) have provided detailed demonstration of the vertebral artery at the craniocervical junction and its(More)
Treatment of radiation myelopathy remains a challenge. Supportive and rehabilitative therapy is the mainstay of treatment. This article describes a case of central nervous system (CNS) toxicity of radiation with a progressive improvement in the clinicoradiological picture following high dose steroid treatment. A female patient was admitted to the neurology(More)
