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)
PURPOSE Previous studies have shown that post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is associated with lymbic system dysfunction. The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether or not the neuronal integrity in hippocampus and anterior cingulate gyrus is affected in PTSD as assessed by proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Single voxel(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 An increased intima-media thickness (IMT) in the carotid arteries is a marker of generalized atherosclerosis, and it has been associated with a high risk of stroke. The aim of this study was to investigate whether patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) have an increase in atherosclerotic indicators in the carotid arteries. METHODS(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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
