In 67 cases, the diagnosis was apparent from clinical studies, x-ray examinations, or biopsies. In eight cases, no diagnosis could be made. The maximum(More)
The authors report on their experience with high energy radiation therapy in early-stage (I/II) carcinomas of the prostate. Among 191 cases of biopsy-proved carcinomas of the prostate, there were 111 stage I and II tumors, including 83 T1, T2 intracapsular tumors. 78 of the 111 patients received curative radiation therapy.

The purpose of our study is to use MDCT and MR imaging to describe the normal ileal pouch and to identify features of Crohn’s disease (CD) relapse in patients after ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA). After total colectomy followed by IPAA, features, optimally evaluated with pelvic MRI, such as fistulas, abscesses, pouch inflammation, and stenoses,(More)
