Computed tomography (CT) of the knee was performed in 160 patients following double-contrast arthrography. Seventy-five synovial folds on the medial wall of the knee joint were found, and 63 of these plicae could be considered mediopatellar plicae. In 10 of the 63 cases, long, thick mediopatellar plicae were found, which could lead to a mechanical internal(More)
Sixtyseven patients with pain in the knee were studied. A computed tomography (CT) score indicating chondromalacia was devised, based on the results of CT after arthrography. This score takes account of the regularity, the congruity, and the imbibition of contrast material. Thus the patients could be divided into four groups: those who definitely have(More)
After arthrography 71 young patients with pain in the knee had a computed tomography (CT) examination. The form of the patella is classified according to the method of Wiberg [12] and on CT 50% of them do not correspond to the type described on the axial roentgenogram. The position of the patella can be examined on CT with a relaxed knee in 15 degrees of(More)
The authors describe an unusual case of unilateral, nonfusion of the neural arch of the sixth cervical vertebra, documented with conventional X-ray examination and computed tomography. A brief review of other forms of congenital clefts is given and correlated with embryological findings.
In three cases of injury to the cervical spine, in which plain films and tomographic studies provided inconclusive diagnoses, computed tomography scanning demonstrated the lesions unequivocally. When such diagnostic problems arise the use of this supportive technique is advocated.
A case of lethal, subacute monocytic leukaemia is described in which the development of multiple sclerotic bone lesions, resembling metastases, was due to secondary myeloid metaplasia. The spectrum of leukaemic involvement of the skeleton is discussed with emphasis on sclerotic bone lesions. The differential diagnosis of other focal areas of bone sclerosis(More)
