Real-time ultrasonography (US) was used as a single non-invasive method in the management of 174 patients (56 inpatients and 118 outpatients) with suspected deep-vein thrombosis (DVT). Therapeutic decisions were based on the results of ultrasonography alone. If the US examination was abnormal anticoagulant treatment was started. If the initial US(More)
Two families are described which appear to contain examples of multiple epiphyseal dysplasia. In both families a striking incidence of severe osteochondritis of the knees was encountered. It is suggested that this was caused by the fragmented and maldeveloped epiphyses characteristic of epiphyseal dysplasia.
INTRODUCTION The objective of this study is to compare different methods for measuring breast density, both visual assessments and automated volumetric density, in a breast cancer screening setting. These measures could potentially be implemented in future screening programmes, in the context of personalised screening or screening evaluation. MATERIALS(More)
Congenital anomalies of the arch of the atlas in the sense of clefts are uncommon. As such anomalies may be mistaken for fractures, radiologists should be aware of them. A case of aplasia of the right part of the posterior arch producing wide, asymmetric medial cleft of the atlas is presented. The patient also had hypoplastic left part of the arch with the(More)
To determine whether the varicocele results from collateral circulation partially replacing an obstructed left renal vein, we developed a scintigraphic technique that provides not only information about the velocity of retrograde flow in the testicular veins but also quantitative information about the size of the varicocele. The reliability of this method(More)
Left renal vein compression occurring mainly with the patient in the upright position, and being less severe or absent in the supine position, was considered to be the main cause of varicoceles. We show that left renal vein compression is, indeed, more severe with the patient in the upright than in the supine position and that it produces a left renocaval(More)
We studied the frequency of restenosis and the effects of percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (PTRA) on blood pressure (BP) and particularly on renal function in all patients in whom successful dilatation was performed. Restenosis was found in 42% of the patients with an atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis and in 22% of the patients with(More)
To determine the influence of local contrast optimisation on diagnostic accuracy and perceived suspiciousness of digital screening mammograms. Data were collected from a screening region in the Netherlands and consisted of 263 digital screening cases (153 recalled,110 normal). Each case was available twice, once processed with a tissue equalisation (TE)(More)
