PURPOSE To evaluate the computed tomographic (CT) features of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in patients with acute abdominal pain. Special emphasis was placed on the analysis of ischemic bowel disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS The authors retrospectively reviewed the images from 39 abdominal CT examinations performed in 33 patients with SLE and acute(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the utility of the resistive indices (RIs) of the epididymal and intratesticular arteries, and to establish diagnostic criteria for scrotal inflammatory disease on the basis of quantitative color Doppler sonography. MATERIAL AND METHODS We prospectively examined 29 consecutive patients with scrotal pain, and 15 normal control(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to analyze the CT findings in 10 patients with abdominal actinomycosis to determine the appearance of lesions and the pattern of spread of the disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the CT findings in 10 patients with pathologically proved actinomycosis. Involved areas were the pelvis (n = 4),(More)
PURPOSE To determine the impact of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) on the clinical course, hormonal status, and follow-up CT/MRI scan of pituitary macroadenomas. METHODS AND MATERIALS From July 1988 to March 1996, 24 pituitary macroadenomas had been treated using 6 MV linear accelerator based SRS. They consisted of 11 (45.8%) prolactinomas, 2 (8.3%)(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to describe the findings of MR imaging of fibrous dysplasia and to evaluate the correlation between radiologic and pathologic findings. MATERIALS AND METHODS MR images of 13 proven cases of fibrous dysplasia were analyzed for signal intensity, hypointense rind, internal septations, cystic changes, soft-tissue(More)
PURPOSE To describe the MR characteristics that can distinguish idiopathic transverse myelitis from other intramedullary lesions. METHODS A total of 32 initial and follow-up MR studies in 17 patients with clinically proved transverse myelitis were reviewed retrospectively. The location, size, pattern, and segmental length of areas of hyperintensity were(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES With the use of localized, water-suppressed in vivo 1H magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), the proton metabolic alterations of white matter in patients with closed head injury (CHI) and healthy controls are evaluated, and metabolic alterations with Glasgow Outcome Scale (GOS) scores are compared. METHODS Patients with CHI (n =(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the computed tomographic (CT) features of xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis (XGC) and to distinguish it from gallbladder carcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective analysis was performed in 11 patients with XGC and 17 patients with gallbladder carcinoma in which the wall was thickened. The following CT features were analyzed:(More)
We evaluated the CT of intestinal obstruction due to adhesions in 20 postoperative patients, with emphasis on early detection of strangulation. Ten patients with surgically proven strangulated obstruction (strangulation group) were compared with another ten patients (nonstrangulation group) in whom seven improved with conservative management and three had(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The authors investigate whether there is a lateral effect of 1H-magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) observable metabolite ratios between the symptomatic and the asymptomatic side in Parkinson's disease with unilateral symptoms. METHODS Localized in vivo 1H MRS was used to measure the metabolite levels in the symptomatic and the(More)
