The purpose of this study was to describe magnetic resonance findings of intradural spinal canal secondaries and to select the best way of investigating this condition. Thirty patients with a known malignancy [breast carcinoma (n = 14), lung carcinoma (n = 10), other sites (n = 6)] and unexplained neurologic signs were studied with pre- and post-contrast(More)
Background: Do visceral–spermatic vein shunts have any clinical impact on sclerotherapy of varicoceles? Methods: The spermatic venograms of 500 consecutive patients were retrospectively reviewed to classify visceral–spermatic communications. Men with an average age of 27.8 years (range 11–65 years old) underwent sclerotherapy of a varicocele. Of the 500(More)
Most gastroplasties performed to replace the esophagus are vascularized by the right gastroepiploic artery alone. Its origin, course and anatomical relations are classical and subject to little variation. Conversely, its mode of termination and relations to the left gastroepiploic artery have received quite different descriptions in the literature. This(More)
Infectious sacroiliitis is an uncommon septic arthritis, the diagnosis of which is difficult to establish. We retrospectively examined 14 cases of septic sacroiliitis, by CT (two of whom also had an MRI examination). The patient population consisted of eight men and six women; 9 were African, 8 had tuberculous sacroiliitis and 6 pyogenic sacroiliitis. All(More)
A 35-year-old man with a long history of left L5 radicular pain was found to have an intraspinal cystic lesion causing radicular compression. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a round lesion situated in the anterior epidural space, with uniform high signal intensity on T2-weighted sequences characteristic of a cystic lesion. During surgery a(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the utility of CT scan findings for the diagnosis of chest wall tuberculosis, excluding the spine. We reviewed 15 patients (13 Africans and 2 Indians) with chest wall tuberculosis, retrospectively. The radiologic examination consisted of a plain X-ray and a CT scan of the chest for each patient. The site of(More)
The aim of this study is to describe the morphology of the normal parametrium by correlating the slices obtained with computed tomography of 12 female cadavers studied after intravascular injection of latex with the dissection findings in 6 of these patients. The upper limit, represented by the isthmus, was defined by the uterine a. and/or a superficial(More)
A case of pseudo-tumoral actinomycosis of the liver was examined by ultrasonography (US), computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MRI with injection of Gadolinium-DOTA (Gd-DOTA) revealed irregular structures in the center with peripheral enhancement. Diagnosis was obtained on percutaneous biopsy in view of characteristic sulfur on(More)
To assess the morphology of the suspensory ligament of the ovary on CT scan examination, an anatomic study of the suspensory ligament of the ovary was performed to demonstrate its morphology on CT and to facilitate the visualization of the ovaries. Twelve female cadavers were studied after intravascular injection of latex (venous: 2, arterial: 6,(More)
