Multiple myeloma is characterised by a progressive proliferation of malignant plasma cells usually initiating in the bone marrow. The most common manifestations of this disease are bone involvement, renal disease and hematologic disorders. The radiological findings of diffuse osteopenia or osteolytic bone lesions are well recognised. Extraosseous… (More)
MR findings in three patients with mannosidosis are reported. They all had diploic space widening with underdevelopment of the sinuses, prominent periventricular Virchow-Robin spaces and perioptic CSF spaces. Two had tight foramen magnum, one of which was associated with a cervical syrinx and markedly widened perioptic CSF spaces with papilledema.
OBJECTIVE Manually segmented traumatic pelvic hematoma volumes are strongly predictive of active bleeding at conventional angiography, but the method is time intensive, limiting its clinical applicability. We compared volumetric analysis using semi-automated region growing segmentation to manual segmentation and diameter-based size estimates in patients… (More)
BACKGROUND The prostatic anterior zone (AZ) is not targeted routinely by TRUS guided prostate biopsy (TRUS-Pbx). MRI is an accurate diagnostic tool for AZ tumors, but is often unavailable due to cost or system restrictions. We examined the diagnostic yield of office based AZ TRUS-Pbx. METHODS 127 men at risk for AZ tumors were studied: Patients with… (More)
R adiology is a medical specialty that employs the use of imaging to both diagnose and treat disease visualized within the human body. Radiologists use an array of imaging technologies such as x-ray radiography, ultrasound, computed tomography, nuclear medicine, positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging to diagnose or treat diseases.… (More)
BACKGROUND Screening for cognitive impairment is recommended in patients with cerebrovascular disease. We sought to establish the incidence of cognitive impairment using the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) in a cohort of consecutive patients attending our stroke prevention clinic (SPC), and to determine whether a subset of the MoCA could be derived for… (More)
MRI and MRS were used to examine the brain and the spine of a Coffin-Lowry syndrome (CLS) patient. There were moderately enlarged lateral and third ventricles and subarachnoid space with prominent Virchow-Robin spaces. MRS of basal ganglia and periventricular white matter was normal.
