PURPOSE Aim of the study is to demonstrate the main role of magnetic resonance imaging in the identification and characterization of lipomatous lesions of the head and neck. MATERIALS AND METHODS CT and MRI findings of 78 patients (43 male, 35 female) aged 12-80 (mean 47.5) years surgically treated for lipomatous lesions of the head and neck region(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to define the relationship between paediatric obstructive sleep apnoea-hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) and craniofacial morphovolumetric features through comparative craniometric analyses between affected children and controls based on conventional cephalometry. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cephalometric examinations of 40 children(More)
AIMS AND BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to define the role of diffusion-weighted imaging in the characterization of adnexal complex masses, with particular regard to the distinction between benign and malignant lesions. Conflicting results on this topic have emerged from studies in the last decade, with a consequent substantial limitation to the use of(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to compare the dento-skeletal effects of rapid maxillary expansion (RME) and mixed maxillary expansion (MME), assessed on posteroanterior (PA) cephalograms. METHODS Treatment groups consisted of 42 patients; mean age in RME group (n = 21,13 female and 8 male subjects) was 8.8 years ± 1.37 at T0 and 9.6 years ± 1.45 at(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to analyse mammographic and ultrasound (US) features of fibroadenoma and phyllodes tumour and assess the diagnostic accuracy of mammography, US and US-guided core needle biopsy (CNB) in the differential diagnosis of these two lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS The results of the pathological analysis of excision biopsy of 83(More)
OBJECTIVE Aim of our study was to identify anatomical risk factors involved in the development of pediatric OSAHS through a MRI-based case-control pilot study. METHODS MRI exams of the head and neck of 40 children affected by OSAHS were retrospectively evaluated. 25 indices referring to the air lumen, soft tissues and craniofacial skeleton were measured.(More)
Aim of our study was to evaluate the prevalence of aberrant origin of the branches of the external carotid artery (ECA) in 97 patients by computed tomography (CTA) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) and to compare the accuracy of these two techniques in the visualization of the ECA system. All patients underwent CTA and MRA examination of the head and(More)
The bowel and the mesentery represent the third most frequently involved structures in blunt abdominal trauma after the liver and the spleen. Clinical assessment alone in patients with suspected intestinal and/or mesenteric injury from blunt abdominal trauma is associated with unacceptable diagnostic delays. Multi-detector computed tomography, thanks to its(More)
PURPOSE The authors sought to identify radiological criteria assisting in the diagnosis of craniofacial fibrous dysplasia and differential diagnosis of fibro-osseous lesions by comparing computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings and histological results in 23 patients with presumed fibrous dysplasia. MATERIALS AND METHODS From(More)
The advent of multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT) has drastically improved the outcomes of patients with multiple traumatic injuries. However, there are still diagnostic challenges to be considered. A missed or the delay of a diagnosis in trauma patients can sometimes be related to perception or other non-visual cues, while other errors are due to(More)
