Radiologic diagnosis of osteoid osteoma: from simple to challenging findings.
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.
MR imaging assessment of the spine: infection or an imitation?
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.
Grading of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury: Diagnostic Efficacy of Oblique Coronal Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Knee
Additional use of oblique coronal MR imaging of the knee improves diagnostic accuracy in the grading of ACL injury.
Cervical interlaminar epidural steroid injection for neck pain and cervical radiculopathy: effect and prognostic factors
F fluoroscopy guided CIESI is a safe and effective means of treating patients with neck pain and cervical radiculopathy and the most important outcome predictor was cause of pain, and patients with herniated disc experienced better pain relief than those with spinal stenosis.
Rheumatoid arthritis and tuberculous arthritis: differentiating MRI features.
Uniform synovial thickening, large size of bone erosion, rim enhancement at site ofBone erosion, and extraarticular cystic masses were more frequent and more numerous in tuberculous arthritis.
MRI findings of subcutaneous epidermal cysts: emphasis on the presence of rupture.
OBJECTIVE Our aim was to describe the MRI findings of subcutaneous epidermal cysts with an emphasis on determining the presence of rupture. CONCLUSION Epidermal cysts show a fluidlike signal with
MR imaging mapping of skeletal muscle denervation in entrapment and compressive neuropathies.
The analysis of denervated muscle distributions by using MR imaging, with a knowledge of nerve innervation patterns, would be helpful for determining the nerves involved and the levels of nerve entrapment or compression.
Differentiating high-grade from low-grade chondrosarcoma with MR imaging
Results of multivariate stepwise logistic regression analysis showed that soft tissue formation and entrapped fat within the tumour were the variables that could be used to independently differentiate LGCS from HGCS.
Unilateral Sacroiliitis: Differential Diagnosis Between Infectious Sacroiliitis and Spondyloarthritis Based on MRI Findings.
MRI features of the bone lesions, soft-tissue lesions, and joint space enhancement in unilateral sacroiliitis aid in the differential diagnosis between infection and spondyloarthritis.
Radiofrequency thermal ablation in canine femur: evaluation of coagulation necrosis reproducibility and MRI-histopathologic correlation.
Radiofrequency ablation created well-defined coagulation necrosis in a reproducible manner, and MRI accurately determined the extent of the radiofrequency-induced thermal bone injury.
