The ANTARES collaboration is building a deep sea neutrino telescope in the Mediterranean Sea. This detector will cover a sensitive area of typically 0:1 km 2 and will be equipped with about 1000 optical modules. Each of these optical modules consists of a large area photomultiplier and its associated electronics housed in a pressure resistant glass sphere.(More)
Solitary eosinophilic granulomas of bone are benign and tend to heal spontaneously over a period of months to years. Radiotherapy and curettage have certain risks, which may be excessive considering the benign nature of the lesion. The authors injected methylprednisolone directly into 9 pathologically proved solitary eosinophilic granulomas of bone and(More)
Percutaneous fine needle aspiration biopsy of 18 patients with pancreatic masses, and 19 with other intra-abdominal tumors, showed it to be a safe, accurate procedure. A diagnostic biopsy yield was obtained in over 85% of the cases without clinical complications. Indications for fine needle biopsy are: (a) to avoid surgery by obtaining a histologic(More)
Ultrasound and computed tomography (CT) guided percutaneous needle biopsy of soft tissue lesions was performed in 39 patients. A correct diagnosis was obtained in 35 of 42 biopsies, with an overall accuracy rate of 83%. No false-positive diagnoses were obtained, and no complications related to the procedure were encountered. The value of this technique in(More)
The response to intraarterial cis-diamminedichloroplatinum II (CDP) chemotherapy was evaluated by computed tomography (CT) in 33 patients with pathologically proved osteosarcoma of the long or flat bones. Twenty-one of the 33 patients had a CT scan before chemotherapy was started. In the other 12 patients, a CT scan was obtained after at least two courses(More)
CT scans demonstrated a localized collection of gas adjacent to a normal sacroiliac joint in 5 patients. In each case the lesion was sharply demarcated by a thin sclerotic rim. A benign bone cyst was confirmed histologically in 2 cases. The radiologist should be aware of this appearance so as to avoid invasive procedures based on a misdiagnosis of infection(More)
