Preoperative chest computed tomographic (CT) scans in 84 patients with biopsy-proved non-small cell bronchogenic carcinoma were reviewed. At least one adrenal gland was visualized in 70 of these. Evidence of a solid adrenal mass was present in 18 (14.5%) glands in 15 (21.4%) patients. Percutaneous needle aspiration under CT guidance confirmed metastatic(More)
PURPOSE To describe the evolving computed tomography (CT) appearances of a cellulose surgical bolster used as a hemostatic agent in patients who undergo laparoscopic partial nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the follow-up CT studies of 33 patients with stage T1N0M0 renal carcinoma who underwent(More)
The standard technique for computed tomographic evaluation of the larynx utilizes 5-mm contiguous transaxial sections. Multiplanar images reformatted with these sections have not been of clinical use. We have evaluated the practicality of utilizing coronal and sagittal reformatted images produced from contiguous 1.5-mm transaxial sections. The technique of(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the patterns of iodine-131 6 beta-iodomethylnorcholesterol (NP-59) imaging and the correlation with computed tomography (CT)-guided adrenal biopsy and follow-up in patients with bilateral adrenal masses. To this end we investigated a consecutive sample of 29 euadrenal patients with bilateral adrenal masses(More)
Incidentally discovered adrenal masses are detected in 0.35% to 5. 00% of patients imaged with computed tomography (CT) for reasons other than suspected adrenal pathology. Most small adrenal masses are benign, although malignant tumors </= 3 cm in diameter are well described. In the setting of normal adrenal hormonal secretion, the preferential accumulation(More)
