OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to radiologically determine frontal sinus drainage pathway variations with respect to superior attachment of uncinate process (SAUP) and their effect on prevalence of frontal rhinosinusitis. DESIGN This was a retrospective cohort study. METHODS Computed tomography scans of the 919 frontal sinus sides of 460(More)
We present a case of a 48-year-old female with a history of cholecystectomy and recurrent attacks of pancreatitis whose initial abdominal sonography (US) revealed multiple conglomerated stones in the descending part of the duodenum. Abdominal CT, MRI, and magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography showed the same findings. The distended sacciform distal(More)
BACKGROUND Although liver biopsy is an easy procedure for hospitalized patients and outpatients, some complications may occur. OBJECTIVES To evaluate the efficiency, complications, safety and clinicopathological utility of ultrasonographic-guided percutaneous liver biopsy in diffuse liver disease. PATIENTS AND METHODS In our retrospective study, we(More)
BACKGROUND To find out if transabdominal ultrasonography (US) may have a predictive role for detection of antral gastritis and Helicobacter pylori (HP) infection in the antrum of pediatric age group. METHODS A total of 91 (63.6%) patients and 52 (36.4%) controls were allocated into two groups as follows: Group 1 (n=91): patients with complaints and(More)
Vascular malformations (VMs) are described as congenital malformations of the vasculature derived from capillaries, veins, lymphatic vessels, arteries, or a combination of these vessels. They can cause significant morbidity resulting from soft tissue hypertrophy-related disfiguration, bony abnormalities, and even organ compromise. They are usually treated(More)
OBJECTIVE The objectives of this study were to specify the objective criteria of existence of cholesteatoma in chronic otitis media on the preoperative multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) and to evaluate the complications of disease. METHODS We compared the results of preoperative MDCT scan with intraoperative findings in 71 patients (22 women, 49(More)
Our aim was to investigate whether there is a correlation between computerized tomography (CT) density measurements of the urinary bladder and urinalysis results. Patients were subdivided into three groups with respect to urinalysis results: Group 1, no leukocytes or erythrocytes detected in urine (n=25); Group 2, erythrocytes detected in urine (n=50); and(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The goal of this study is to emphasize the value of lesion-focused approach in ultrasonography (US)-guided solid liver lesion biopsies performed under our guidance. MATERIALS AND METHODS In our retrospective study, after the standard preparation for US-guidance solid liver lesion biopsy was accomplished, we performed standard(More)
AIM Pediatric renal biopsy may result in serious hemorrhagic complications, requiring additional diagnostic procedures, blood transfusion, vascular interventions, and prolongation of hospitalization. The aim of the present study was to propose the angled tangential approach technique for real-time ultrasound-guided pediatric percutaneous renal biopsy. (More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the current study was to investigate whether signal intensities on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) views and radiological findings on Doppler ultrasonography may have a diagnostic value for vertebrobasilar insufficiency (VBI). METHODS This case-control study was performed on demographic and radiologic data derived from 18 VBI(More)
