OBJECTIVE To determine the diagnostic accuracy of a dental computed tomographic software program, DentaScan, in assessing mandibular bone invasion in patients with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the oral cavity clinically fixed to the mandible. DESIGN Retrospective chart review. SETTING Academic tertiary care medical center. PATIENTS Thirty-six(More)
 A 50-year-old man was treated conservatively for chronic bilateral ankle pain for several years. Plain radiographs obtained following exacerbation of symptoms showed bilateral enlarged peroneal processes. CT and MRI demonstrated bony detail of the unusual processes and also showed isolation of the peroneus longus tendons and associated tendinitis and(More)
The influenza vaccine is increasingly available to the general public and mandated by many employers in the United States. The prevalence of post-vaccination complications is likely on the rise. Complications are well known to general clinicians, but are under-reported in the imaging literature. We present four cases of post-vaccination shoulder pain with(More)
Anatomic restoration of displaced fracture-dislocation of the tarsometatarsal junction of the foot is essential, as even "minor" disruptions of this joint complex leads to poor clinical results. In order to determine a "key" element associated with good or poor functional outcomes, 11 patients with excellent radiographic results following surgical treatment(More)
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is a relatively common orthopedic procedure, with patellar tendon frequently a graft source. However, controversy exists regarding the decision to use autograft or allograft patellar tendon tissue. This experimental study used computed tomography (CT) to compare the percentage of bone graft incorporation(More)
Giant-cell tumor is a benign but locally aggressive primary bone tumor that requires surgical management. Most giant-cell tumors initially are demonstrated on radiographs as distal, subarticular, geographic osteolytic lesions. Abundant giant cells on histology are reactive secondary to a neoplastic fibroblast-like stromal cell. Giant cells are present in(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effects of cervical flexion and traction on foraminal volume and isthmus area at the C5-C6 foraminal space in cadavers. DESIGN This study evaluated the foraminal space at C5-C6 in cadaver specimens during flexion and traction of the cervical spine. SETTING An orthopedic biomechanics laboratory and department of radiology of a(More)
MRI allows non-invasive assessment of intervertebral disc degeneration with the added clinical benefit of using non-ionizing radiation. What has remained unclear is the relationship between assessed disc degeneration and lumbar spine kinematics. Kinematic outcomes of 54 multi-segment (L1-Sacrum) lumbar spine specimens were calculated to discover if such an(More)
Fibrous dysplasia is a well-known benign dysplastic process of bone. However, fibrous dysplasia is very uncommon in the spine. Further, to our knowledge, coexistence of fibrous dysplasia and aneurysmal bone cyst in the spine has not been reported. This manuscript presents a patient who had both processes involving the cervical spine.
