PURPOSE To retrospectively review the 64-slice computed tomography (CT) appearance of coronary artery anatomic variants and anomalies and determine their incidence in 700 patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS CT data of 700 patients who underwent 64-slice CT angiography (CTA) because of known or suspected coronary artery disease were retrospectively reviewed by(More)
BACKGROUND Arterial dissection is defined as the cleavage of the arterial wall by an intramural hematoma. Reports of dissection of the celiac and/or superior mesenteric artery are rare; as far as we know, only 24 cases of spontaneous isolated celiac trunk dissection, and 71 cases of spontaneous isolated superior mesenteric artery dissection have been(More)
Purpose is to evaluate the intraobserver and interobserver variability of the North American Symptomatic Carotid Endarterectomy Trial (NASCET), European Carotid Surgery Trial (ECST) and Common Carotid (CC) methods, which are used to measure the degree of ICA stenosis, using 64-slice CT angiography and to compare the measurements made by these three methods.(More)
PURPOSE Comparison of morphologic and dynamic methods of hip ultrasonography (US) to differentiate normal from abnormal findings in the diagnosis of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH). MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 6,800 hips in 3,400 infants were examined with US, using the morphological method of Graf, and the dynamic method of Harcke. (More)
To review the 64-slice CTA (computed tomography angiography) appearance of anatomical variations in branching pattern of the arcus aorta, and to determine their prevalence in 1001 cases. 1001 cases that underwent carotid CTA (performed by a 64-slice scanner) were included in the study. Seven types of aortic arch were found. In 853 cases (853/1001, 85.2 %)(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of the study was to evaluate the association of sonographic worsening in type 2a hips with risk factors of developmental dysplasia of the hip, stability of the hip, and initial sonographic findings. METHODS Among infants who were referred for hip sonography between 2007 and 2009, 3450 were included in this study. Sonographic(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the relationship between risk factors and presence of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) in male infants, and to compare the efficiency of different ultrasound (US) screening protocols. MATERIALS AND METHODS 1321 male infants were included in the study. Ultrasound examinations were performed by combining Graf's static method(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate variants of the popliteal artery (PA) terminal branches with 64-multidetector computed tomographic angiography (64-MD CTA). MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 495 extremities (251 right, 244 left) of 253 patients undergoing a 64-MD CTA examination were included in the study. Of these, 242 extremities were evaluated bilaterally, whereas(More)
Rupture of an aneurysm is the major cause of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). This condition has a mortality rate of 40-60%, and 10-20% of the survivors remain functionally dependent (1-3). Rapid diagnosis and an immediate treatment decision are of crucial importance because a delay in diagnosis increases the morbidity and mortality rate. Aneurysms may be(More)
Vaginal bleeding is the most common cause of emergency care in the first trimester of pregnancy and accounts for the majority of premenopausal bleeding cases. Ultrasound evaluation combined with a quantitative beta human chorionic gonadotropin test is an established diagnostic tool to assess these patients. Spontaneous abortion because of genetic(More)
