PURPOSE To determine utility of proton density fat fraction (PDFF) measurements for quantifying the liver fat content in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and compare these results with liver biopsy findings. MATERIALS AND METHODS This retrospective study was approved by the institutional review board with waivers of informed(More)
BACKGROUND Many imaging methods have been defined for quantification of hepatic steatosis in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). However, studies comparing the efficiency of magnetic resonance imaging-proton density fat fraction (MRI-PDFF), magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), and liver histology for quantification of liver fat content are limited.(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate whether nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is associated with coronary artery disease (CAD) in type 2 diabetic patients, who underwent coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA). METHODS Between June 2007 and May 2010, a total of 273 type 2 diabetic patients without known liver disease underwent coronary CTA for chest(More)
Renal angiomyolipoma is a hamartomatous, benign tumor composed of blood vessels, fatty tissue and smooth muscle cells, and is often detected incidentally. It can also be associated with the tuberous-sclerosis complex (TSC). Pregnancy and use of oral contraceptives are known to be associated with an increased risk of tumoral rupture and bleeding. Herein, we(More)
PURPOSE We aimed to determine dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) characteristics of colorectal cancer and investigate effectiveness of DECT method in differentiating tumor from stool in patients with colorectal cancer. METHODS Fifty consecutive patients with colorectal tumors were enrolled. Staging was performed by DECT (80-140 kV) using dual-source(More)
Microvascular invasion is a crucial histopathologic prognostic factor for hepatocellular carcinoma. We reviewed the literature and aimed to draw attention to clinicopathologic and imaging findings that may predict the presence of microvascular invasion in hepatocellular carcinoma. Imaging findings suggesting microvascular invasion are disruption of capsule,(More)
Hepatic steatosis can occur because of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), alcoholism, chemotherapy, and metabolic, toxic, and infectious causes. Pediatric hepatic steatosis is also becoming more frequent and can have distinctive features. The most common pattern is diffuse form; however, it can present in heterogenous, focal, multinodular,(More)
OBJECTIVES Elastography is a new sonographic technique that evaluates the elasticity of different tissues such as the Achilles tendon. In this study, we aimed to investigate the elastographic findings of Achilles tendons in professional athletes in comparison with healthy volunteers. METHODS Twenty-one professional male volleyball players with no history(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a well-established imaging modality to evaluate increased iron deposition in the liver. Both standard liver imaging series with in-phase and out-of-phase T1-weighted sequences for visual detection, as well as advanced T2- and T2*-weighted measurements may be used for mapping the iron concentration. In this article, we(More)
Eccrine spiradenoma is a rare benign tumor originating from sweat glands. Its sonographic characteristics have been described in only a few reports, and there is no such report available that describes sonoelastographic findings of this tumor. In this case report, we aimed to define the sonographic and sonoelastographic findings of a benign eccrine(More)
