To determine if quantitative and qualitative shear wave elastography have roles in evaluating musculoskeletal masses. 105 consecutive patients, prospectively referred for biopsy within a specialist sarcoma centre, underwent B-mode, quantitative (m/s) and qualitative (colour map) shear wave elastography. Reference was histology from subsequent biopsy or(More)
OBJECTIVE Rheumatoid arthritis is a predominantly joint-based disease affecting approximately 1% of the world's population. This article will address the increasing use of both ultrasound and MRI in the diagnosis and monitoring of rheumatoid arthritis and will highlight both the strengths and weaknesses of these two imaging modalities, with particular(More)
AIM To assess the accuracy of provisional reporting and the impact on patient management. MATERIALS AND METHODS Over a 6 month period, 137 polytrauma computed tomography (CT) examinations were performed by on-call registrar radiologists at our institution. After exclusions, 130 cases were analysed. Discrepancies between registrar and consultant reports(More)
Purpose. To prospectively evaluate regional referrals into a soft tissue sarcoma service from outside the tertiary centre with local hospital imaging. Materials and Methods. Consecutive referrals were prospectively assessed for: patient demographics, source, referral date, date received by Multidisciplinary Team (MDT), lesion size, local radiology, MDT(More)
Ultrasound is increasingly used by radiologists and rheumatologists for the diagnosis and assessment of inflammatory arthritis in day-to-day clinical practice. It is ideally suited to demonstrating early changes of these conditions before they are evident using conventional radiography or indeed clinical examination. Ultrasound readily demonstrates(More)
The fibrocartilaginous glenoid labrum contributes to shoulder stability and provides attachment for the long head of biceps tendon and the glenohumeral ligaments. The superior site of attachment of the long head of biceps (biceps anchor) represents a site of injury to the superior labrum where tearing may extend into the biceps tendon as well as anterior(More)
AIM To illustrate the computed tomography (CT) appearances and natural history of postoperative omental infarction following colonic resection and to highlight the important clinical implications of this radiological diagnosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Over a 3 year period, 15 patients with a history of colonic resection were identified as having a CT(More)
The aim of this study was to establish the prevalence of tenosynovitis affecting the interosseous tendons of the hand in a rheumatoid arthritis (RA) population and to assess for association with metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint synovitis, flexor tendon tenosynovitis or ulnar drift. Forty-four patients with RA underwent hand MRI along with 20 normal controls.(More)
The accessory soleus muscle is an uncommon anatomical variant with an incidence of between 0.7 and 5.5 % [1]. It has a relatively constant origin from the anterior surface of the soleus muscle; however, the distal insertion is more variable and five types have been identified: onto the Achilles tendon and either a tendinous or muscular insertion onto the(More)
The role of radiological guided intervention is integral in the management of patients with musculoskeletal pathologies. The key to image-guided procedures is to achieve an accurately placed intervention with minimal invasion. This review article specifically concentrates on radiological procedures of the hand and wrist using ultrasound and fluoroscopic(More)
