Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: T2 shortening in motor cortex at MR imaging.
Abnormal iron deposition associated with the degenerative process could be the source of T2 shortening, which is a useful MR imaging finding in the diagnosis of ALS.
Multilocular cystic hemangioma: CT and MR appearance.
An atypical case of multilocular cystic hemangioma is presented, incidentally found in a 66-year-old healthy woman on ultrasound screening, and CT, MR imaging, and angiography were performed, but the final diagnosis could not be made until surgery.
A case of intracranial involvement of Hodgkin's disease.
A 20-year-old man who had complained of lymph node swelling on the right neck was admitted to a hospital in December 1978 and diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease, and he was treated by various series of chemotherapy and radiotherapy with unsatisfactory results.
Hepatic schistosomiasis japonica identified by CT.
We reviewed the CT examinations of 17 patients who had hepatic schistosomiasis japonica and noted peculiar hepatic calcifications in 15 cases and a notch on the hepatic surface in six. A
[Hepatocellular carcinoma associated with schistosomiasis japonica; CT and angiographic features].
In patients with marked CT changes of hepatic schistosomiasis japonica, most of HCC nodules were disclosed as a mass with homogenous hypodensity surrounded by "shell-like calcifications" which is expected to be treated by transcatheter arterial embolization more effectively than those without schisto-somatica.
Adrenal adenomas: characteristic hyperintense rim sign on fat-saturated spin-echo MR images.
The hyperintense rim sign is characteristic of adrenal adenomas and can be differentiated from metastases by means of this new imaging sign on fat-saturated MR images.
Schistosomiasis japonica of the liver: contrast-enhanced CT findings in 113 patients.
CT findings in patients with schistosomiasis japonica involving the liver include septal, amorphous, and capsular contrast enhancement, which may suggest the diagnosis of hepatic schistOSomiasisJaponica, especially when no calcification is seen on unenhanced CT scans.
MR imaging of seminal vesicle cysts associated with adult polycystic kidney disease.
An unusual case of seminal vesicle cysts associated with adult polycystic kidney disease (APKD) and the magnetic resonance (MR) appearance has not been described before.
MR imaging of malignant mesenchymal tumors of the liver
It is suggested that MR differentiation of primary hepatic mesenchymal tumors from other common benign and malignant neoplasms was difficult; however, the number of studied cases was limited.
