PURPOSE Transient osteoporosis of the hip (TOH) presents with acute onset pain and bone marrow edema (BMe) on MR imaging. The purpose of this study is to revise the MR imaging characteristics of TOH by analyzing the data derived from 155 hip examinations. We also sought to explore the relationship between the duration of symptoms and the presence of sparing(More)
Rotator cuff calcific tendinopathy (RCCT) with intraosseous extension is a rare complication of tendinous and peritendinous involvement. The purpose of our study is to evaluate the outcome of ultrasound-guided percutaneous irrigation of calcific tendinopathy (US-PICT) in patients with intraosseous involvement. From January 2011 to June 2014, patients with a(More)
PURPOSE Hydroxyapatite deposition disease (HADD) around the hip joint is a self-limiting condition usually treated conservatively. The aim of the present study is to directly compare the outcomes of CT-guided and conservative treatments in cases of refractory hip HADD. METHODS Two groups of patients with refractory hip HADD were prospectively constructed(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare lung ultrasonography (US) in the sitting or supine positions and the lateral decubitus position, with regard to the feasibility, duration, patient convenience, and assessment of B-lines, in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. METHODS Twenty consecutive patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis were prospectively enrolled.(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of tibial rotation measurement as a secondary sign for diagnosing anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears with the use of MRI. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 893 MRI studies were retrospectively reviewed, and 239 patients were identified as having either an intact ACL (group 1; n = 182),(More)
We report a case of an 80-year-old man, who underwent an endovascular repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm. Surgical access was obtained from both common femoral arteries, and the procedure was uneventful. One month computed tomography (CT) follow-up was without findings. Two months after endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR), the patient complained(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare a simplified ultrasonographic (US) protocol in 2 patient positions with the same-positioned comprehensive US assessments and high-resolution computed tomographic (CT) findings in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. METHODS Twenty-five consecutive patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis were prospectively enrolled and(More)
Bone marrow oedema (BME) is commonly found in hip MR imaging. BME is a nonspecific finding which can be related to a wide variety of diseases. However, there are cases where its existence or its pattern can narrow the differential or even point to a specific diagnosis. Therefore, deep understanding of its pathophysiology is of utmost importance for(More)
Impingement syndromes are increasingly recognised as significant causes of hip pain and dysfunction. A broad spectrum of intraarticular and extraarticular conditions has been implicated in their pathophysiology. Physical examination is often inconclusive as clinical findings may be unclear or misleading, often simulating other disorders. With current(More)
