Thirty-two macerated femora were examined by CT in order to determine the degree of anteversion and to relate this to the position of the femur and to the various reference lines quoted in the literature. The accuracy of CT is the same as that of the Rippstein method, provided the following conditions are met: 1. Position of the femur with its long axis(More)
A CT procedure for objective measurements of tibial torsion independent of axial rotation in the nearby joints is described. Transverse sections in defined planes of the tibia permit easy calculation of normal and abnormal congenital or posttraumatic angles of torsion. In 69 limbs normal tibial torsion was 40 degrees +/- 9 degrees. In a series of 42 limbs(More)
Evaluation of tibiofibular motion in vivo has been possible only by invasive methods. A new noninvasive method has been developed that uses computed tomography (CT). A special device was constructed for use on the CT table to study fibular motion with load placed across the ankle. From dorsal to plantar flexion the fibula moved 1.1 +/- 0.4 mm medially with(More)
Our results and experience with computer tomography (CT) were analyzed with respect to 41 patients with fresh bone injuries in both the cervicothoracic and the lumbar region of the vertebral column. Besides differentiated representation of the involvement of various parts of the vertebral body, the arch, transverse and spinous processes in 46 fractures, and(More)
A computer tomographic method is described for measuring tibial torsion in vivo. The basis of the method depends on transverse scans of the tibia through the knee and ankle joint region by means of which it is possible to establish normal values and abnormal posttraumatic or in congenital torsion. Traumatologists, as well as orthopaedic surgeons, require(More)
We report on two spontaneous cases of microangiopathic hemolytic anemia (MAHA) as first manifestation due to metastasized signet ring carcinoma, one of gastric and one of unknown origin. The patients presented with an acute onset of Coombs negative hemolytic anemia and fragmentocytes in the peripheral blood smear which are typical for MAHA. These case(More)
The temporomandibular joints (TMJs) of 60 patients with arthrographically confirmed internal derangements and 30 volunteers were examined with single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). Semiquantitative evaluation was done by forming a quotient from the counts of a constantly sized TMJ-ROI relative to the overall counts of the cranium. The(More)
A retrospective study was used in an attempt to clarify whether skull fractures or clinical findings can be used for diagnosing intracranial injuries and which clinical features indicate that skull X-rays are unnecessary. 78 patients (1.5%) had a skull fracture and 41 patients (0.8%) had suffered intracranial injuries. Of 57 patients with skull fractures,(More)
