OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the fibular incisura of the tibia in type I and II recurrent sprained ankle. METHODS A total of 18 limbs (9 right, 9 left) were examined for the fibular incisura of the tibia by magnetic resonance imaging at Gunmar Magnetic Resonance Imaging Center between September 2000 to May 2001. This group consisted(More)
Knowledge of the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis should be helpful in determining the normal position of the fibula in the incisural notch. The purpose of this study was to determine the anatomic characteristics of the fibular incisura of the tibia on MR imaging. One hundred fifty lower limbs (43 male, 32 female volunteers) were examined with MRI. The(More)
OBJECT aim of this study was to analyse the observer variability in the diagnosis and definition of disc pathologies with low and high-field strength MR scanners. MATERIAL AND METHODS 95 patients with low back pain or radicular pain who were referred from two different centers were included in the study. Fifty-seven patients were scanned with 0.3 T MR(More)
Several recent studies have found a relationship between midline cerebral malformations (cavum septi pellucidum, absence of the adhesio interthalamica) and schizophrenia. In this study, we investigated whether the adhesio interthalamica is more often absent in patients with schizophrenia than healthy cases and whether the absence of the adhesio(More)
Pelvic ultrasonography was performed on 75 normal girls. Values were obtained for uterine length, fundal/cervical ratio (FCR), ovarian volume and sex hormones. The resultant data were grouped according to age and pubertal stage (Tanner). For uterine length, FCR and ovarian volume, the data were positively skewed, and the variance increased with age and(More)
Acute hemorrhagic leukoencephalitis (AHL) is a rare and usually fatal disorder characterized by an acute onset of neurological abnormalities. It may occur in association with a viral illness or vaccination. Radiology and brain biopsy are essential for the diagnosis. We present a case of AHL mimicking or manifesting as intracerebral hemorrhage associated(More)
A laryngocele is usually a cystic dilatation of the laryngeal saccule. The etiology behind its occurrence is still unclear, but congenital and acquired factors have been implicated in its development. In this study, we present a rare case of laryngocele occurring in a 72-year-old woman. During physical examination the external component of the laryngocele(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of maxillary lateral incisor (MLI) agenesis and associated dental anomalies as well as skeletal patterns in an orthodontic population, and then to compare it with the prevalence of these anomalies in the general population. STUDY DESIGN The material of the present study included the(More)
AIM The purpose of our study was to determine the association between smoking habit, goiter, thyroid functions and ultrasonographic nodularity in moderately iodine deficient area. METHODS The MELEN study is a prospectively designed survey on the prevalence of thyroid diseases in Turkish adults. A total of 2298 subjects with a mean age of 50 (age range 18(More)
OBJECTIVE This study measures and compares the outcome of conservative physical therapy with traction, by using magnetic resonance imaging and clinical parameters in patients presenting with low back pain caused by lumbar disc herniation. METHODS A total of 26 patients with LDH (14F, 12M with mean aged 37 +/- 11) were enrolled in this study and 15(More)
