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)
Reports on the incidence of odontogenic tumours are infrequent with only a limited number of series having appeared in the literature. In this paper, the results of a multicentre retrospective study on the histologic types and relative frequencies of odontogenic tumours in Turkey are presented. The results indicated that the most frequent histologic type(More)
Visual neglect has been frequently described in a horizontal direction. Altitudinal neglect, however, has rarely been described and has been associated with bilateral lesions in the parieto-occipital or temporo-occipital region. The following case report presents a patient with marked altitudinal neglect of the inferior space which was elicited using a line(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)
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)
BACKGROUND Despite being highly efficient for the relief of patient discomfort due to transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) guided prostate biopsy, periprostatic anesthesia is occasionally reported to be of limited use. We aimed to evaluate the efficacy of conscious sedation, an accepted method for lessening patient discomfort due to interventional radiological(More)
PURPOSE 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. MATERIALS AND METHODS 1001 cases that underwent carotid CTA (performed by a 64-slice scanner) were included in the study. RESULTS Seven types of aortic arch(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)
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)
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)
