OBJECTIVE To assess the pulmonary parenchymal findings on high-resolution CT in 41 patients with the chronic form of paracoccidioidomycosis (South American blastomycosis). SUBJECTS AND METHODS The study included 41 consecutive patients in whom chronic paracoccidioidomycosis had been proven. All patients underwent high-resolution CT (1-mm collimation,(More)
The appearance of intracranial hematoma on magnetic resonance (MR) images has been described. However, the appearance of hematoma on ECG-gated spin-echo images, which are used for cardiac imaging, has not been described previously. Accordingly a retrospective analysis of nine consecutive patients with acute and subacute mediastinal bleeding imaged with(More)
Acute tracheobronchitis is a rare manifestation of invasive aspergillosis, generally occurring in severely immunocompromised patients. The authors report the case of a patient presenting with this condition after bone-marrow transplantation, with emphasis on tomographic findings.
AIMS To investigate by real-time 3D echocardiography (RT3DE) and cardiac computed tomography (CCT) the analysis of left ventricle ejection fraction (LVEF) and volumes. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 67 patients (37 males, 55 +/- 11 years) were studied prospectively by RT3DE and by 64-slice CCT. RT3DE data: LVEF ranged from 30 to 78.6% (63.1 +/- 7.33);(More)
Previous studies have shown the value of MR imaging for the identification of cardiac masses. The distinction of intramural tumors from normal myocardium may be equivocal because of the similarity of signal intensity between tumor and normal myocardium on ECG-gated SE images. The purpose of this study was to assess the role of Gd-DTPA for improving the(More)
BACKGROUND Real-time three-dimensional echocardiography (RT-3D-Echo) and ultrafast computed tomography (CT) are two novel methods for the analysis of LV ejection fraction and volumes. OBJECTIVE To compare LVEF and volume measurements as obtained using RT-3D-Echo and ultrafast CT. METHODS Thirty nine consecutive patients (27 men, mean age of 57+/-12(More)
Referrals for bariatric surgery have currently increased due to the need for more effective interventions in the management of severely obese patients. The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is currently one of the preferred procedures, and internal hernias are the main causes of late postoperative complication. Petersen's hernia is a less common finding in most(More)
The authors report the case of a patient victim of gunshots, with a very rare complication: venous bullet embolism from the left external iliac vein to the lingular segment of the left pulmonary artery. Diagnosis is made with whole-body radiography or computed tomography. Digital angiography is reserved for supplementary diagnosis or to be used as a(More)
