Traumatic brain damage can result in severe visual impairments including hemianopia. Lesions correlated with hemianopia can be located in any part of the retrochiasmatic optic pathway. However, traumatic lesions of the optic tract are relatively rare. We present a case with posttraumatic left homonymous hemianopia who had signal intensity change at the(More)
Pseudoaneurysm of the dorsalis pedis artery is an uncommon condition that is usually caused by a traumatic injury or an iatrogenic intervention. The patient usually complains of an enlarging painless, pulsatile mass. A tentative diagnosis may be made by palpation of the pulsatile mass and detection of an associated systolic bruit. Color Doppler sonographic(More)
We describe a rare case of vertebral artery duplication in a patient with vertigo, weakness, and nausea. A color Doppler examination revealed a duplicate origin of the left vertebral artery and a hyperechoic thrombus at the origin of 1 of the duplicated arteries. CT angiography of the lower neck area demonstrated duplicated vertebral arteries on the left(More)
BACKGROUND Myocardial scar causes heterogeneous ventricular activation, which results in fragmentation of QRS complexes on ECG. Myocardial fibrosis in patients with nonischemic cardiomyopathy (NDCM) can be identified as late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) areas on cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) studies. We investigated the association of fragmented QRS(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to assess the detectability of the structures that are affected by cervical spondylosis by different 3D MRI sequences and compare the image quality of those sequences. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty healthy volunteers were examined using a 1.5 T MR unit. T2* weighted 3D-gradient echo sequence with magnetization transfer(More)
Migration of an intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD) to the urinary bladder is very rare. We describe a case in which transabdominal sonography demonstrated such migration of an IUD in a 30-year-old woman who sought treatment for pelvic pain and dysuria. The IUD had originally been inserted 10 years earlier, and the patient had given birth without(More)
We present the case of a 37-year-old woman with a history of 2 consecutive insertions of intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUDs) 3 years before she was referred to us for sonographic evaluation of lower abdominal pain. The first of the IUDs was presumed to have been expelled spontaneously, and 3 months after insertion of the second device, the patient had(More)
Hydatid disease of the urogenital system, especially of the retroperitoneum and seminal vesicles, is a very rare condition. We report a case of hydatid disease located in the liver, retrovesical region and seminal vesicle that was diagnosed incidentally while investigating the etiology of syncope. Transabdominal and transrectal ultrasonography revealed(More)
OBJECTIVE Our aim was to determine whether inward or outward movement of the secretions in the paranasal sinuses due to nose blowing after nasal decongestion has any effect on the paranasal sinus computed tomography (CT) images in patients with sinusitis and to asses whether nose blowing may result in misdiagnosis or overdiagnosis in radiological evaluation(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the effects of sildenafil, a popular new drug in the treatment of erectile dysfunction, on ocular blood flow. METHODS This study was designed as a prospective, double-blind, placebo-controlled study. Twenty participants with erectile dysfunction were given a single oral dose of 100 mg sildenafil, while 10 participants with erectile(More)
