PURPOSE To compare unenhanced helical computed tomography (CT) and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in the detection of common bile duct calculi. MATERIALS AND METHODS Within 13 months, 51 patients (aged 18-94 years) with clinically suspected choledocholithiasis underwent unenhanced helical CT immediately before undergoing ERCP. CT(More)
This white paper describes splenic and nodal incidental findings found on CT and MRI. Recommendations for management are included. This represents the third of 4 such papers from the ACR Incidental Findings Committee II, which used a consensus method based on repeated reviews and revisions and a collective review and interpretation of relevant literature.(More)
PURPOSE To determine the sensitivity and specificity of plain radiography for the detection of ureteral calculi with use of unenhanced helical computed tomography (CT) as the standard of reference. MATERIALS AND METHODS Plain radiographs and helical CT scans of 178 patients with acute flank pain were reviewed retrospectively. Three interpretations of(More)
OBJECTIVE When a stone is located in the region of the ureterovesical junction on CT studies, it is important to determine if the stone is impacted at the ureterovesical junction or has already passed into the bladder. The purpose of this study was to determine if CT findings can be used to distinguish stones impacted at the ureterovesical junction from(More)
This white paper describes gallbladder and biliary incidental findings found on CT and MRI. Recommendations for management are included. This represents the fourth of 4 such papers from the ACR Incidental Findings Committee II, which used a consensus method based on repeated reviews and revisions and a collective review and interpretation of relevant(More)
PURPOSE We compared a rapid high resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique to contrast urethrography for the detection of urethral diverticula in women. MATERIALS AND METHODS During a 19-month interval 13 patients with clinically suspected urethral diverticula were evaluated with MRI and contrast urethrography. All patients were referred by a(More)
OBJECTIVE On radiographs of the abdomen and pelvis, phleboliths often have a characteristic radiolucent center that helps to distinguish them from ureteral stones. On unenhanced CT, the distinction between pelvic phleboliths and distal ureteral stones can be problematic. The objective of this study was to compare the appearance of phleboliths on routine(More)
When a patient presents with acute flank pain, ureteral obstruction secondary to stone disease is a primary consideration in the differential diagnosis. However, there are many diseases unrelated to ureteral obstruction that can result in flank pain (e.g., appendicitis, diverticulitis, pancreatitis, torsion of a mass, cholecystitis, bowel obstruction,(More)
