OBJECTIVE To define the clinical, ultrasonographic and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings in patients with painful snapping of the hip secondary to transient subluxation of the iliopsoas tendon. PATIENTS AND METHODS Seven patients, ranging in age from 17 to 30 years, with a total of eight painful snapping hips were examined with static and dynamic(More)
Giant cell tumour of bone is a relatively common neoplasm with limited potential for metastatic spread. These tumours usually occur at the ends of bones with their epicentre in the epiphysis. This essay will review the various common and some of the less frequently encountered manifestations of giant cell tumours at multiple different sites, as well as(More)
Abnormalities of the Achilles tendon and adjacent bursae are common problems that may be difficult to diagnose clinically. Twenty patients with symptoms involving the Achilles tendon and 10 control subjects were evaluated with real-time sonography in order to explore the role of sonography in defining abnormalities of the tendon and adjacent bursae and in(More)
The prognosis of intraarticular calcaneal fractures is variable, ranging from severe functional impairment and pain to complete return of normal function. Clinical assessment and CT scanning were performed 1-11 years after fracture in 45 patients (51 fractures) to determine the relationship between the CT findings and clinical status. Conservatively treated(More)
 Chondroid lipoma is a recently described benign tumor of adipose origin which, pathologically, mimics myxoid liposarcoma and myxoid chondrosarcoma. This tumor typically presents as a well-defined mass in the superficial tissues of the extremities. In this report, we present the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) appearances of a pathologically proven(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to design and use an algorithm for selection of the most appropriate biopsy technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS An algorithm was designed to maximize the tissue sampling and diagnostic accuracy of musculoskeletal tumor biopsy. We used fine-needle aspiration to sample small ( < 3 cm) soft-tissue masses, an 18-gauge(More)
