The main objective of this study was to describe the characteristic imaging features of cerebral and spinal hydatid disease (HD) in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) in order to provide more effective differential diagnoses in endemic regions. We also aimed to use MRI and CT to evaluate whether the World Health Organization’s(More)
OBJECTIVE We aim to determine the relationship between leukoaraiosis and carotid artery stenosis. METHODS Carotid-cerebral multislice computed tomography angiographies of 194 patients (mean age, 63.5 years) were retrospectively evaluated. Presence and severity of leukoaraiosis and carotid artery stenosis were compared to each other. Carotid artery(More)
AIM To evaluate the blood flow in arteries of the orbit in patients with psoriasis. METHODS In total, 30 patients with psoriasis and 30 healthy control subjects were recruited to the study. Standard ophthalmic evaluation, fundus examination and retrobulbar colour Doppler ultrasonography assessment were performed. The ophthalmic, posterior ciliary and(More)
Tubular ectasia of the rete testis (TERT) is a rare disorder that can be seen on ultrasonography (US) during a routine examination. In this study, we aim to discuss 15 cases of TERT and concomitant scrotal pathologies. A total of 405 patients who were admitted to our department between March 2009 and December 2011 for scrotal US with different complaints(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of our study was to evaluate the shear wave velocity (SWV) of parathyroid lesions by point shear wave elastography (SWE) and to compare their stiffness with that of thyroid nodules and normal thyroid parenchyma quantitatively. METHODS Thirty-six patients considered to have parathyroid disorders by clinical and laboratory tests and(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate thyroid nodules using virtual touch quantification (VTQ) of force impulse acoustic radiation (ARFI) imaging and to investigate a cutoff value for the differentiation of malignant thyroid nodules. Ninety-five patients with quantitatively-assessed (VTQ) thyroid nodules were evaluated with ARFI imaging in this(More)
Duodenal web, duodenal obstrüksiyonlar arasında nadir görülen konjenital anomalidir. Duodenal webin büyüklüğü ve yerleşimine göre, bulgular ve başlangıç yaşı değişiklik gösterebilmektedir. Bu olgu sunumunda, tekrarlayan kusma, epigastrik distansiyon, halsizlik, ishal şikayetleriyle başvuran, cerrahi sonucu duodenum ikinci kısmında web saptanan, 6 yaşındaki(More)
AIM To investigate correlations between myocardial fat deposition of unknown etiology and myocardial infarction, coronary artery stenosis, time after the infarction, aneurysmatic dilatation of arteries, and stenting or bypass operation. PATIENTS AND METHODS We evaluated coronary computed tomography angiographies of 266 patients presenting with history of(More)
Superb micro-vascular imaging (SMI) is a new blood flow (BF) technique recently developed to outface the limitations of conventional Doppler imaging techniques (CDIT). SMI can observe micro-vascular BF and low-velocity BF. SMI is available in two modes as color SMI (cSMI) and monochrome SMI (mSMI). To evaluate testicular BF, we have compared color Doppler(More)
OBJECTIVES In living renal donors, digital subtraction angiography and intravenous pyelogram techniques developing traditional evaluation before transplant have started to give place to more modern and less-invasive methods such as multidetector computerized tomography angiography, and magnetic resonance angiography via the developments in the imaging(More)
