Desmoid tumors are characterized by proliferation of fibroblastic cells that arise from the fascia or aponeurosis of muscle. They are most commonly found in the abdomen of adults, arising from the anterior abdominal wall, mesentery, or retroperitoneum. At sonography, desmoids have variable echogenicity, with smooth, well-defined margins. On(More)
Not all enhancing lesions in the kidney are renal cell carcinoma. We report a rare case of a carcinoid tumor arising within a teratoma of the kidney in an asymptomatic female patient. Carcinoid tumors and teratomas involving the kidneys are rare. The two entities existing simultaneously in the same kidney are exceptionally unique. Still, the radiographic(More)
Gas-forming infections of the genitourinary tract may manifest as life-threatening conditions, often requiring aggressive medical and surgical management. Accurate interpretation of the radiologic studies is essential for early and accurate diagnosis of gas within the renal parenchyma or collecting system, bladder, uterus, and scrotum. Three distinct(More)
We reviewed the gross photographs of 19 patients with hemangioma of the liver. On cut sections, all 19 tumors were inhomogeneous. In 17 cases (89%) there were areas of predominantly central fibrosis. Lobulations were present in 10 cases (53%). Areas of thrombosis (nine cases), calcification (four cases), and hemorrhage (four cases) were also present. We(More)
The authors here discuss twelve discrete pathologic entities that they found, in a review of over 500 abdominal CT scans, caused the appearance of a cystic lesion in the liver. The CT characteristics of the various lesions are illustrated, differential points in the patients' histories are noted, and gross and microscopic pathology specimens are correlated(More)
We present 8 cases of retrocaval ureter, one of which concerns a unique periureteral venous ring formed by the persistence of the right posterior cardinal vein along with a normal vena cava. Current radiographic concepts are reviewed and the importance of inferior venacavography in the preoperative evaluation for correction of the retrocaval ureter is(More)
We investigate the use of 4-phase computerized tomography with intravenous contrast to help distinguish oncocytoma from renal cell carcinoma (RCC) in tumors <4 cm. We retrospectively identified patients who underwent surgical management for renal tumors <4 cm from 2005 to 2008. Patients who had pre-operative CT evaluation as per our institution’s renal mass(More)
Throughout medicine, there is a recurrent paradigm of development of noninvasive/less invasive testing used to identify patients who may then be able to forgo relatively more invasive diagnostic testing and treatment. In the realm of cardiology, reconstructed advanced imaging has been extensively investigated as a substitute for cardiac catheterization [1].(More)
Aneurysms of the hepatic artery are the second most common visceral aneurysm found in the abdomen, following those of the splenic artery (1, 2). Owing to the close relationship between the common hepatic artery and the head of the pancreas, aneurysms of this vessel may be confused with pancreatic masses during radiologic imaging. This is a case report of a(More)
Computed tomography is commonly the first diagnostic modality to detect venous thrombosis. The relatively constant location and anatomic relations of the major abdominal veins allow for their proper recognition and differentiation from other tubular structures. Whether the occlusion is secondary to blood clot or tumor extension, the vessels demonstrate a(More)
