OBJECTIVE A variety of retroperitoneal diseases such as pancreatitis, infection, and trauma may cause fluid collections in the three major retroperitoneal spaces. The purpose of our study was to elucidate flow patterns of fluid between the various compartments to assist the clinical-radiologic assessment and treatment of various retroperitoneal diseases. … (More)
PURPOSE To evaluate flow patterns and anatomic appearances in the pelvic extraperitoneal spaces and to determine their relation to the abdominal extraperitoneal spaces. MATERIALS AND METHODS Helical computed tomographic (CT) guidance was used for injection of up to 1,000 mL of iodinated contrast material into one pelvic extraperitoneal space in each of… (More)
Local Pantopaque instillation receives continued support in the urologic and radiologic literature as a method for treating benign renal cysts. If benign renal cysts are a common lesion with an exceedingly small complication rate, what is the rationale for such treatment with a potentially hazardous substance?
Based on a retrospective and prospective analysis of more than 200 consecutive patients undergoing excretory urography, the authors formulated a chart for determing optimum tomographic levels using the anteroposterior abdominal distance as a criterion. the renal contour was visualized satisfactorily in 93% of cases.
The relative value of prone and supine filming in excretory urography was prospectively evaluated in 100 unselected, adult, high-dose urograms. The supine radiographs were superior or equal to prone radiographs in all cases. Significant findings were limited to the supine radiographs in six cases. Findings were seen on both supine and prone radiographs, but… (More)
Despite the commonplace pathologic occurrence of gallbladder wall thickening in cholecystitis, ultrasonic evaluation of the gallbladder wall has rarely proved useful. Three additional cases of clearly documented ultrasonically visible gallbladder wall thickening are presented to support recent contentions that this may be a new sign of gallbladder disease.
ECG alterations occurring during IV infusion of contrast agents have been well documented, although the specific causes of these alterations are unknown. Stress and anxiety have been considered important factors, but no prospective evaluation of their impact on ECG alterations has been reported. In order to separate ECG changes resulting from anxiety… (More)
