PURPOSE To assess diagnostic sensitivity of radial T1-weighted gradient-echo (radial volumetric interpolated breath-hold examination [VIBE]) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, positron emission tomography (PET), and combined simultaneous PET and MR imaging with an integrated PET/MR system in the detection of lung nodules, with combined PET and computed(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate morphologic features predictive of benign thyroid nodules. MATERIALS AND METHODS From a registry of the records of 1,232 fine-needle aspiration biopsies performed jointly by the cytology and radiology departments at a single institution between 2005 and 2007, the cases of 650 patients were identified for(More)
In contrast to routine flexor tendon injuries, flexor tendon ruptures following blunt injury or re-ruptures following repair can be difficult to diagnose. The authors investigated the efficacy of using ultrasound to assist in the diagnosis. From 1996 to 1997, 8 patients underwent evaluation of the flexor tendons using an ATL HDI-3000 ultrasound machine with(More)
The radiographic manifestations of renal osteodystrophy may be articular as well as osseous. The latter are well recognized, i.e., subperiosteal and subchondral bony resorption. Recently attention has been directed to the occurrence of an erosive arthritis of the hands and wrists in hyperparathyroidism. The authors present six patients with humeral head(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW Since the introduction especially of multidetector computed tomography scanners, detection of peripheral pulmonary nodules as small as 2-3 mm is now a frequent event even in individuals without a significant smoking history. This preponderance of small indeterminate nodules has necessitated reconsideration of the natural history of(More)
Proper treatment for injuries to the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) of the metacarpophalangeal joint of the thumb relies on an accurate diagnosis of the pathology of the ligament. The current study evaluates the accuracy of ultrasonography to diagnose the specific pathology related to UCL injuries. The charts of 16 patients who underwent 21 studies of the(More)
PURPOSE To retrospectively evaluate the frequency of recommendations for additional imaging (RAIs) for important extracolonic findings and polyp prevalence among a cohort of seniors (age ≥ 65 years) and nonseniors (age < 65 years) undergoing low-dose computed tomographic (CT) colonography. MATERIALS AND METHODS Institutional review board approval was(More)
