PURPOSE To describe the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of hepatic involvement in hereditary-hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) and to determine the interobserver agreement for all of them. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty-three consecutive patients (including 17 women, mean age: 55 years) with HHT, according to the Curaçao criteria, underwent(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the value of CT enteroclysis in depicting small-bowel carcinoid tumors in symptomatic patients with surgical, histologic, or clinical follow-up findings as a reference standard. SUBJECTS AND METHODS At our institution, 44 patients with symptoms of suspected gastrointestinal carcinoid tumors underwent CT(More)
Takayasu's disease is a non specific, chronic, inflammatory panarteritis. It affects the aorta, its chief collaterals and the pulmonary arteries. Clinical manifestations depend on the site and the severity of the occlusive vascular lesion. We report a case observed in a young woman who presented ischemic stroke as the inaugural sign of Takayasu's disease.
Chondroblastoma is a rare benign tumor of cartilage tissue accounting for less than 1% of all bone tumors. The epiphysis of long bones is the typical localization, often extending to the metaphysis. Metaphyseal, metaphysodiaphyseal or pure diaphyseal forms are exceptional. We report a case in a 15-year-old boy who presented a metaphyso-diaphyseal(More)
PURPOSE To assess the value of MRCP with Mangafodipir Trisodium (Teslascan) injection in the diagnosis and management of bile leaks. PATIENTS AND METHODS Retrospective study of 25 patients (18 males, 7 females) with a mean age of 49.7 years and high clinical suspicion of bile leak who underwent MRCP with Mangafodipir Trisodium (Teslascan) injection(More)
Spinal epidural localization of hydatid cyst is quite rare. We report a case of a 33-year-old patient who experienced paraparesis over 2 years, with an umbilical sensitive level. A CT scan and MRI showed an intrathoracic multilobar lesion, probably of intra-spinal origin. An anterolateral transpleural surgical approach confirmed the hydatic character of the(More)
PURPOSE To assess the value of standard double reading of whole body CT in the management of polytrauma patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Prospective study between January and July 2005. Two senior radiologists with expertise in trauma imaging, blinded to clinical findings, reviewed 105 initial CT examinations of polytrauma patients. These examinations had(More)
Stab wounds of the spinal canal are rare and constitute an uncommon cause of spinal cord injury. They are usually responsible for an immediate neurological deficit that requires emergency therapeutic management to minimize the extent of neurological deficit and to prevent further loss of neurological function. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is used to(More)
UNLABELLED Perivascular epithelioid cell tumors (PEComas) encompass a group of rare mesenchymal neoplasms, which typically have a perivascular location with dual melanocytic and muscular differentiation. They are found in a variety of localizations, though lesions in the liver are exceedingly rare. Because of their rarity, the clinical, radiological and(More)
