PURPOSE To present our results in a series of 35 patients with malignant pulmonary lesions, who underwent radiofrequency thermal ablation (RFA) during a period of 18 months. MATERIALS AND METHODS In our institution, 55 RFA sessions under computed tomography (CT) guidance were performed on 48 pulmonary malignant lesions (23 inoperable primary and 25(More)
Appendicitis is the most common abdominal emergency occurring in 7%-12% of the population. The aim of this article was to pictorially present the spectrum of appendix and acute appendicitis appearances on computed tomography (CT). The various appearances on CT of the normal appendix are shown as well as the CT criteria for the differentiation of perforated(More)
AIM To evaluate the efficacy and complications of computed tomography (CT)-guided radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS A retrospective study of 282 patients (231 males, 51 females, age range: 44-76 years, mean age: 62 years) with HCC (322 lesions) who had been treated by CT-guided RFA over a period of 5(More)
BACKGROUND Hughes-Stovin syndrome is a rare entity. The aetiology of Hughes-Stovin syndrome is still unknown and the natural course of the illness is usually fatal; however it is supposed to be a clinical variant manifestation of Behçet disease. CASE PRESENTATION We report the case of an 18 years old, greek male patient with Hughes-Stovin syndrome, who(More)
We describe the case of a 24-year-old hemophilic man who had been a human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive for the past 22 years and presented to our hospital with bilateral breast enlargement with the presence of microcalcifications. Etiology of breast enlargement in male HIV population and differential diagnosis between true gynecomastia and(More)
The authors describe the case of a patient with hepatocellular carcinoma and portal vein (PV) tumor thrombus. Radiofrequency (RF) ablation was applied successfully not only to the main tumor but also directly to the invaded PV. On the last imaging follow-up performed at 16 months after RF ablation the PV remained recanalized. Twenty months after the RF(More)
BACKGROUND We evaluated the variation of calcitonin gene related peptide (CGRP) expression in patients with mixed invasive with extensive in situ ductal carcinomas (IDC + DCIS) and pure IDC, in relation to mammographic breast density (%BD), proliferation-seeking radiotracer (99m)Tc(V) dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) uptake (scintimammographic-SMM),(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess the relationship of mammographic breast density (BD) and cell proliferation/focal adhesion kinase activation-seeking radiotracer technetium 99m pentavalent dimercaptosuccinic acid (99mTc(V)-DMSA) uptake in women with different breast histologies, that is, mild epithelial hyperplasia (MEH), florid epithelial(More)
CyberKnife frameless image-guided radiosurgery has become a widely used system for parenchymal extracranial lesions. Gold fiducials are required for the planning and aiming of CyberKnife therapy. We report our initial experience and describe the technique of positioning tumor markers, under CT guidance. We conducted a retrospective review of 105 patients(More)
