Recognition of fat within an organ or lesion on abdominal and pelvic computed tomographic scans is an important clue to guiding a differential diagnosis. A systematic approach to these lesions, including a patient's age and clinical history, along with the appearance and location of the lesion often allows a specific differential diagnosis. The anatomic… (More)
The authors describe a whole-gut irrigation method of cleaning the colon. Normal volunteers drank an irrigant solution at varying rates, and all but one achieved a radiologically clean colon within several hours. This method is proposed for use in the occasional study where a clean colon must be obtained in a relatively short period of time.
The authors present a case report of a cerebellar hemangioblastoma supplied, in part, by an enlarged tentorial artery of Bernasconi and Cassinari. The vertebral arteries also provided a portion of the blood supply to this tumor. The angiographic findings are illustrated. A brief summary of the causes of tentorial artery enlargement is presented. Les auteurs… (More)
We report four sporadic and three familial patients with Camurati–Engelmann disease. One patient had follow-up examinations over 8 years. Pain in the extremities and muscle weakness were common clinical symptoms. Most patients also had cranial nerve impairment, hepatosplenomegaly, a waddling gait, and elevated serum alkaline phosphatase levels. Long bones… (More)
Computed tomographic (CT) scans of 11 patients with perforations of the stomach or duodenum were reviewed to determine the variety and relative conspicuity of findings. Five patients had de novo presentation due to perforation of peptic ulcers, two had perforations at ulcer repair sites, and the remaining four patients had ulcer perforations following… (More)
The characteristic radiological findings which follow a Nissen fundoplication are reviewed. The esophagus may be narrowed but is intrinsically normal. A pseudotumor at the medial aspect of the fundus is generally present. The history and radiographic findings can normally differentiate this defect from neoplasm or a nonoperated hiatal hernia. Postoperative… (More)
An air-contrast technique of the esophagus is described. It is simple to perform routinely prior to an upper gastrointestinal study, can reveal unsuspected small lesions, does not lead to excessive dilution of the barium, and can be done just prior to obtaining air-contrast views of the stomach.
