OBJECTIVE The purpose of this article is to describe the imaging features of diseases that may closely simulate pancreatic adenocarcinoma, either radiologically or pathologically. CONCLUSION Neoplastic and inflammatory diseases that can closely simulate pancreatic adenocarcinoma include neuroendocrine tumor, metastasis to the pancreas, lymphoma, groove(More)
Elbow pain is a frequent presenting symptom in athletes, particularly athletes who throw. The elbow can be injured as a result of acute trauma, such as a direct blow or a fall onto an outstretched hand or from chronic microtrauma. In particular, valgus extension overload during the throwing motion can precipitate a cascade of chronic injuries that can be(More)
Many complications of sickle cell trait have been well-established, but associations with additional disease states remain controversial. We conducted a retrospective cohort study to examine the frequency of receiving a diagnosis of thromboembolism, pulmonary embolism (PE), ischemic stroke, renal disease (acute, chronic), coronary artery disease (CAD) and(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of weight gain on progression of early knee morphologic abnormalities using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in a longitudinal study over 48 months. DESIGN We studied the right knee of 100 subjects from the Osteoarthritis Initiative (OAI), selecting subjects aged ≥ 45 with osteoarthritis (OA) risk factors who demonstrated(More)
OBJECT This study has two objectives: (1) to compare the kinetics of low diffusion P846 with Gd-DOTA using inversion recovery echo planar (IR-EPI) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and (2) to determine the potential of P846 in defining myocardial viability in hearts subjected to various injuries using T1-weighted spin echo (T1-SE). MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
PURPOSE To provide evidence that vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) genes delivered transendocardially with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging guidance may neovascularize or improve vascular recruitment in occlusive infarction. MATERIALS AND METHODS All experimental procedures received approval from the institutional committee on animal research. Dogs(More)
While drug-related periostitis has been known of for many years, the specific association of diffuse periostitis with voriconazole (most frequently in transplant patients) has only been recently explicitly addressed in the literature. Recognition of the radiologic and clinical manifestations of voriconazole-related periostitis is important for helping to(More)
PURPOSE To serially monitor bone remodeling in the swine femur after magnetic resonance (MR) imaging-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) ablation with MR imaging, computed tomography (CT), sodium fluorine 18 (Na(18)F)-positron emission tomography (PET), and histopathologic examination, as a function of sonication energy. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate impressions and usage of sinus surgery image-guided surgical (IGS) systems by ENT surgeons in the United States. STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING A survey was mailed to selected practicing ENT physicians, investigating regional information, practice type, IGS usage patterns, perceived benefits and limitations, and usage of the 61795 surgery(More)
To assess the feasibility, safety and preliminary efficacy of magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS) for the treatment of extra-abdominal desmoid tumours. Fifteen patients with desmoid fibromatosis (six males, nine females; age range, 7–66 years) were treated with MRgFUS, with seven patients requiring multiple treatments (25 total(More)
