OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to develop and cross-validate a new sonographic scoring system for differentiation between benign and malignant adnexal masses. STUDY DESIGN This study was conducted in a tertiary care university hospital. In the first part of the study, we used a multivariate logistic regression analysis to develop a scoring system(More)
The Stroop is a classical paradigm that presumably involves the inhibition of automatic responses and is frequently used to assess the frontal lobe functions. We investigated the effect of discrete prefrontal lesions in a Stroop task. A sample of 32 patients with frontal lesions were matched with normal controls by sex, age and years of education.(More)
OBJECTIVE The goal of this study was to determine the toxicity patterns and clinical usefulness of intraoperative electron beam radiotherapy (IOERT) in patients with unfavorable-outcome cervical cancer. METHODS From January 1986 to June 1999, 67 patients (36 recurrent, 31 primary disease) were treated with IOERT. Previously unirradiated patients received(More)
The aim of this paper is to describe the patterns of functional magnetic resonance imaging activation produced by visual food stimuli in healthy participants, as well as in those with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder and obesity. We conducted a systematic review of studies published in the last decade on normal and abnormal eating.(More)
To examine the relationship between neuropsychological sequelae and atrophy parameters from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) following paediatric moderate-to-severe traumatic brain injury (TBI), 19 head injured children and adolescents were studied at least 6 years after injury. Three-dimensional MRI scans were obtained. A semi-automatic computerized method(More)
Similarities and differences between obesity and addiction are a prominent topic of ongoing research. We conducted an activation likelihood estimation meta-analysis on 87 studies in order to map the functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) response to reward in participants with obesity, substance addiction and non-substance (or behavioural) addiction,(More)
OBJECTIVE To review the diagnostic accuracy of transvaginal ultrasound (TVS) in the preoperative detection of endometriosis in the uterosacral ligaments (USL), rectovaginal septum (RVS), vagina and bladder in patients with clinical suspicion of deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE). METHODS An extensive search was performed in MEDLINE (PubMed) and EMBASE(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the natural history of simple unilocular adnexal cysts in asymptomatic postmenopausal women. METHODS Eight thousand seven hundred ninety-four asymptomatic postmenopausal women underwent transvaginal ultrasound as part of routine gynecological check-up at our institution between January 1995 and June 2002. All patients in whom a(More)
PURPOSE To describe and analyze the diagnostic performance of uterine virtual navigation with three-dimensional (3D) ultrasonography (US) for the assessment of the depth of myometrial infiltration by endometrial cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Institutional review board approval was obtained; patients gave oral informed consent. Women with endometrial(More)
GOALS Three-dimensional ultrasound (3D-US) is a new imaging technique that has become available in clinical practice. It is being increasingly used in women with gynecological cancer. The goal of this article is to review critically current evidence of the role of this technique in this clinical setting. METHODS Through Medline search (2001-2010) 46(More)
