OBJECTIVE We describe an intravertebral fluidlike collection observed on MR images in five of six patients who sustained vertebral body fracture through a segment of the spine ankylosed by diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis. The mechanism of injury, clinical course, conventional radiographs, CT scans, and other MR imaging findings are analyzed. (More)
Myositis ossificans circumscripta is a benign pathology of soft tissue occurring in young patients often after localized trauma. Histological and radiological appearances may mimic a malignant neoplasm, mainly sarcoma. We report a case characteristic of myositis ossificans circumscripta, to illustrate diagnostic arguments which are based on their appearance(More)
Wrist injuries are an extremely common occurrence. The origin of these injuries may be due to a fracture of the two bones of the forearm or the wrist bones, which may sometimes require specific X-rays views. They are rarely responsible for a dislocation of the wrist. Strains wrists may be misdiagnosed and may result in instability of the wrist. The initial(More)

Recurrent instability of the shoulder may sometimes be a difficult diagnostic challenge. Bernageau's standard X-rays set, which includes 3 antero-posterior X-rays with medial rotation and 2 glenoid views, is able to confirm the existence of anterior instability events. However, it gives no information on the glenoid labrum and the glenohumeral ligaments. As(More)
After a brief review of the pertinent anatomy of joint compartments and main ligaments of the wrist, the authors present the technique of wrist arthrography and CT arthrography. They discuss the normal and pathological patterns. The main indications are the chronic painful wrist and posttraumatic wrist. Imaging can reveal ligament defects (particularly(More)
Fulminant liver failure is a rare complication of grand mal seizures with a high mortality, the prognosis being largely determined by the combination of the hepatic and neurologic insults. The mechanisms of acute liver failure secondary to grand mal epilepsy and the place of liver transplantation in this context are poorly defined and are the subject of(More)
This retrospective study included eight patients with villonodular synovitis of the knee (7 nodular forms and one villous form) who underwent magnetic resonance imaging and at least one arthroscopy. Joint enlargement and mild pain were the main manifestations. Other imaging studies provided little information. Magnetic resonance imaging showed highly(More)
