A practical MRI grading system for lumbar foraminal stenosis.
TLDR
The new grading system for foraminal stenosis of the lumbar spine showed nearly perfect interobserver and intraobserver agreement and would be helpful for clinical study and routine practice.
Radiologic diagnosis of osteoid osteoma: from simple to challenging findings.
TLDR
To make the correct diagnosis, it is necessary to identify the nidus, and it is important to be familiar with the radiologic findings of osteoid osteoma and its mimics.
Pulmonary cement embolism after percutaneous vertebroplasty in osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures: incidence, characteristics, and risk factors.
TLDR
In osteoporotic VCFs, pulmonary cement embolism was detected in 23% of PVP sessions, developed in the distal to third-order pulmonary arteries, and was related to leakage into the inferior vena cava.
Effectiveness of transforaminal epidural steroid injection by using a preganglionic approach: a prospective randomized controlled study.
TLDR
TFESI for lumbosacral radiculopathy with a preganglionics approach is more effective than TFESI with a ganglionic approach at short-term follow-up.
MR imaging assessment of the spine: infection or an imitation?
TLDR
It is necessary to be familiar with atypical MR imaging findings of spinal infection and features that may mimic spinal infection to avoid misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment.
Quantitative assessment of pancreatic fat by using unenhanced CT: pathologic correlation and clinical implications.
TLDR
Pancreatic fat can be quantified by using CT, and CT attenuation indexes that are applied to the quantification of pancreatic fat are significantly associated with clinical assessment of impaired glucose metabolism.
Grading of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury: Diagnostic Efficacy of Oblique Coronal Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Knee
TLDR
Additional use of oblique coronal MR imaging of the knee improves diagnostic accuracy in the grading of ACL injury.
Acute appendicitis in young adults: low- versus standard-radiation-dose contrast-enhanced abdominal CT for diagnosis.
TLDR
Low-doseCT may have comparable diagnostic performance to standard-dose CT for the diagnosis of appendicitis in young adults, and there was no significant difference between the two groups in the confidence level when diagnosing or excluding appendiciti in the primary reports.
Diffusion tensor imaging and fiber tractography in cervical compressive myelopathy: preliminary results
TLDR
DTI parameters in CCM patients were significantly different from those in normal volunteers but were not significantly related to myelopathy severity, and the patterns of tractography appear to correlate with postoperative neurologic improvement.
