Computed tomography (CT) resulted in a diagnostic accuracy of 89.2% and 96.1% for medial and lateral meniscal lesions, respectively, in 109 patients who underwent surgery after a direct CT study of the knee joint for a clinically suspected meniscal lesion. The meniscal lesions were the only pathologic condition found in 59 patients, while in 35 patients(More)
Computed tomography (CT) was used to examine the knee joint in 175 patients with various pathological conditions. In 118 of these patients a unique technique of study was employed. This technique is based on thin slices, a high resolution reconstruction program, and routine multiplanar reconstructions, without intraarticular contrast medium administration.(More)
The use of computerised tomography in the examination of the knee joint has made it possible to investigate popliteal cysts much more precisely, particularly as regards incidence, localisation, size, shape and above all their possible relationship with other pathological conditions. In 315 examinations, 60 patients (19.5%) were found to have cysts in the(More)
Direct CT of the knee joint was performed on 45 patients who subsequently underwent surgery for clinically suspected capsuloligamentous lesions. It was possible to perform a complete examination on all patients, even those immobilized in a cast or with acute clinical symptoms. Computed tomography correctly differentiated 32 lesions of the anterior cruciate(More)
Fifty patients with lumbar spinal disease, 47 of them with disk herniation, were studied preoperatively using both electromyography and computerized tomography (CT), in order to verify the mutual diagnostic significance and accuracy of these techniques. Electromyographic studies provided correct informations regarding the level of the lesion in 41 patients(More)
Computed tomography was employed in 100 cases to examine the knee joint, without the use of intraarticular contrast medium administration. For greater resolution, only one leg of the patient was introduced into the gantry, and the limb being examined was immobilized and flexed at 8-10 degrees. Computed tomography clearly demonstrated all the anatomical(More)
