Uterine adenomyosis is a common gynecologic condition that is characterized by the presence of heterotopic endometrial glands and stroma in the myometrium with adjacent smooth muscle hyperplasia. The histopathologic features of adenomyosis are varied and contribute to its imaging appearance. The accompanying smooth muscle hyperplasia produces the typical(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the test performance of magnetic resonance (MR) cholangiography for help in diagnosing choledocholithiasis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fast spin-echo MR cholangiography was performed by using a torso multicoil array in 110 patients suspected of having bile duct obstruction. Axial and coronal images were reviewed by two observers who were(More)
This review focuses on non-invasive imaging techniques that have proven useful in diagnosing adenomyosis, including hysterosalpingography, transabdominal and endovaginal ultrasound, as well as magnetic resonance imaging. An understanding of the histopathological features of this disease is crucial when attempting to interpret the associated imaging(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the self-reported and serum cotinine based prevalence rates of smoking among Iranian men, women and adolescents. The study was carried out on 2626 men and women aged 19 years and above and 836 high school students aged 14-18 years, randomly selected from different clusters and schools in Isfahan.

OBJECTIVE Cardiovascular diseases, especially coronary artery disease (CAD), are responsible for the highest mortality rate in Iran. This study was conducted to determine the prevalence of CAD in an urban sample in Isfahan by the Minnesota code of a 12-lead resting electrocardiogram (ECG), the Rose questionnaire on chest pain and a self-reported previous(More)
This article reviews the clinical findings, histopathological features, and treatment options of uterine adenomyosis and relates them to the role of the radiologist in evaluating patients with this disease. Knowledge of the histopathology of this disease is essential to understanding the range of imaging findings encountered in patients with uterine(More)
This article provides an overview of recently developed, noninvasive imaging modalities for the evaluation of gastrointestinal disease processes. The advent of spiral computed tomography, magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography and conventional magnetic resonance imaging has facilitated the noninvasive assessment of pancreaticobiliary disease.
