OBJECTIVES To measure the median nerve (MN) stiffness by quantitative shear wave elastography (SWE) at the carpal tunnel inlet and to determine whether SWE can be used in the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). METHODS The study included 37 consecutive patients (60 wrists) with a definitive diagnosis of CTS and 18 healthy volunteers (36 wrists).(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to present an alternative technique for the pre-operative localisation of solely MRI-detected suspicious breast lesions using a computer-assisted MRI-guided radio-guided occult lesion localisation (ROLL) technique. METHODS Between January 2009 and June 2010, 25 females with a total of 25 suspicious breast lesions(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether the relative proportions of stromal to cellular components of pleomorphic adenomas have an effect on the shear elastic modulus determined by shear wave elastography (SWE). METHODS This study was approved by the Ethics Committee of our institution and performed between September 2011 and December(More)
CONTEXT Cystic-cavernous lymphangioma is a rare cystic tumor especially for adults and pancreas. CASE REPORT We reported a case of a 33-year-old woman who presented with a visible and palpable abdominal mass found to be a huge lymphangioma of the pancreas. An abdominal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a multiloculated, lobulated T1 hypo/hyper, T2(More)
Computed tomography-guided percutaneous transthoracic fine-needle aspiration biopsy of lung lesions is a well known diagnostic technique. Nevertheless, it has some complications; such as pneumothorax, intraparenchymal hemorrhage and hemoptysis, which are not rare. Air embolism is one of the rare but potentially fetal complications of this procedure. Herein,(More)
BACKGROUND Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is highly accurate for the depiction of both the primary tract of fistula and abscesses, in patients with perianal disease. In addition, MRI can be used to evaluate the activity of fistulas, which is a significant factor for determining the therapeutic strategy. OBJECTIVES This study aimed to determine the(More)
The radioguided occult lesion localisation (ROLL) technique is used for the excision of non-palpable breast lesions. This technique has not been described previously for the extraction of foreign bodies from the breast parenchyma. We report here a female patient who was admitted to our hospital with a foreign body in her right breast. The ROLL technique was(More)
OBJECTIVES We aimed to prospectively assess the diagnostic value of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) measurement in the differentiation of benign and malignant mediastinal lymphadenopathies. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 63 consecutive patients (28 women, 35 men; mean age 59.3 years) with 125 mediastinal lymphadenopathies. Echoplanar(More)
