OBJECTIVE. A recent publication has drawn attention to the anterolateral ligament, a structure of the knee with which most radiologists are unfamiliar. We evaluate this structure on MRI; clarify its origin, insertion, meniscal relationship, and morphologic appearance; and identify its relationship with the Segond fracture. MATERIALS AND METHODS. A total of(More)
We evaluated the results of 105 operative repairs of tears of the rotator cuff of the shoulder in eighty-nine patients at an average of five years postoperatively. We correlated the functional result with the integrity of the cuff, as determined by ultrasonography. Eighty per cent of the repairs of a tear involving only the supraspinatus tendon were intact(More)
Glenoid component failure is the most common complication of total shoulder arthroplasty. Glenoid components fail as a result of their inability to replicate essential properties of the normal glenoid articular surface to achieve durable fixation to the underlying bone, to withstand repeated eccentric loads and glenohumeral translation, and to resist wear(More)
PURPOSE To explore the sensitivity and specificity of ultrasonographic (US) elastography using carotid arterial pulsation as the compression source for differential diagnosis of thyroid nodules. MATERIALS AND METHODS This HIPAA-compliant study was approved by the ethics committee of the institution, and all patients provided written informed consent.(More)
OBJECTIVE Radiology departments have traditionally used film-based collections of interesting cases for teaching purposes. Film-based files are expensive to create and duplicate, and they physically occupy considerable space. As one solution to these problems, our department created an on-line radiology teaching file in digital format. MATERIALS AND(More)
Radiologists must consider several factors when asked by a patient to disclose the results of a radiologic examination. This study represents a survey of radiologists' and clinicians' opinions regarding disclosure of information to patients by the radiologist. A clearer understanding of the preferences of radiologists and clinicians may serve to improve(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Diagnostic tests are validated by comparison against a "gold standard" reference test. When the reference test is invasive or expensive, it may not be applied to all patients. This can result in biased estimates of the sensitivity and specificity of the diagnostic test. This type of bias is called "verification bias," and is a(More)
Measurements of T1 and T2 relaxation values and spin density of the lumbar vertebral bone marrow were performed in 212 patients, and the results were correlated with the patients' age and sex. T1 and T2 relaxation times for bone marrow in the lumbar vertebral bodies showed a progressive decrease with age for both sexes (except for the T2 relaxation values(More)
PURPOSE To define age-specific patterns of distribution of red and yellow marrow about the shoulder. MATERIALS AND METHODS Red and yellow marrow distribution was reviewed on magnetic resonance images of 189 subjects aged 15-69 years. Double-echo and fast spin-echo, gradient, and short inversion time inversion recovery pulse sequences were used. The(More)
