OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to optimize anterior MR arthrography of the shoulder by comparing three injection sites. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy-eight patients were divided into three groups of 26 each, according to the injection site selected: the upper third of the medial part of the humeral head, the lower third of the medial part of the(More)
PURPOSE To present a systematic approach to teaching a technique for arthrography of the shoulder. Using an adhesive marker-plate with radiopaque coordinates, precise sites for puncture can be identified and the need for fluoroscopic guidance obviated. MATERIAL AND METHODS Forty-six glenohumeral arthrograms were performed in 45 patients; in 1 case(More)
BACKGROUND Galactography (ductography) is the technique of choice for studying pathologic nipple discharge. It is sometimes difficult or even impossible to perform cannulation of the ductal orifice because of the discomfort caused to the patient. PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of a eutectic mixture of local anesthetics (EMLA) containing lidocaine and(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine whether using a film with radiopaque coordinates placed over the region of interest to guide shoulder arthrography can reduce the dose of radiation received by patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS The entrance dose was obtained in 34 patients (mean age, 44 years; range, 15 to 75 years). The dose received by(More)
