The infratemporal fossa and its contents (particularly the pterygoid muscles) is a region difficult to explore, in spite of its importance in odontostomatological pathology. In order to reduce the indications that justify examination by computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, for reasons of economy of health, the authors describe by application(More)
The influence of various modes of carrying a load of 16 kg (15.69 DaN) on the static positioning of the pelvic girdle and the thoracic and lumbar segments of the spine was examined in seven male subjects. The displacement of cutaneous markers attached to easily palpable skeletal landmarks was recorded using 4 CCD cameras; the data acquired were analysed(More)
Hepatic capsular retraction is an imaging feature that deserves the attention of the radiologist. Hepatic capsular retraction is associated with a number of hepatic lesions, benign or malignant, treated or untreated. The purpose of this pictorial review is to discuss the most common benign and malignant hepatic lesions associated with this feature with an(More)
Dental occlusal relations are rarely reported in paleo-anthropology. The manipulation of hemi-arch replicas, as well as the superimposition of drawings on calques traced from photographs, facilitated the description of the intra- and interarch relations. The occlusal interarch confrontation and the intermolar relation were observed and assessed in the(More)
BACKGROUND To date, no study has compared the evolution of the foramen magnum area (FMA) and the posterior cranial fossa volume (PCFV) with the degree of cranial base synchondrosis ossification. OBJECTIVE To illustrate these features in healthy children. METHODS The FMA, the PCFV, and the ossification of 12 synchondroses according to the Madeline and(More)
In a meta-analysis by Ollier et al 1 on chest CT scan screening for lung cancer in asbestos-exposed workers in a recent issue of CHEST (June 2014), one source of heterogeneity was omitted: CT scan procedures. Among the seven studies included in the meta-analysis, slice thickness obtained with CT scans was heterogeneous. Not all CT scan procedures in the(More)
The motion of thoracic and lumbar spine segments has been analysed by mean of the skin landmarks method on 14 volunteers (7 males, 7 females). Results demonstrate that: There is no significant difference between male and female. There is either facilitation, or limitation of the motion of the characteristic landmarks of the spinal segments during trunk(More)
The motion of the thoracic and lumbar spine segments was analysed by mean of the skin landmarks method in 14 volunteers (7 males, 7 females). The results demonstrated that there was no significant difference between men and women and there was either facilitation or limitation of the motion of the characteristic landmarks of spinal segments during trunk(More)
The analysis of the displacement of the pelvic girdle, during movements of the trunk in the anatomical orthogonal plans, was carried out by the technique of the cutaneous markers on two series of 7 male subjects and 7 female. The photographs made it possible to objectify angular displacements of reliable singular points and to observe that the abduction of(More)
The utility of the inferior oblique m. radioanatomical study by a FLASH 3D sequence in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Twenty eyes (ten healthy volunteers aged 21-32 years, without any history of significant ocular pathology) were explored by MRI (1 Tesla; cranial coil) and comparisons were made between spin echo (SE) T1 sequence (through the neuro-ocular(More)
