To analyze the MR imaging features of fibrolipomatous hamartoma (FLH) of nerves. MR imaging studies from six patients (three men and three women) were retrospectively reviewed by three musculo-skeletal radiologists. In four patients, a biopsy of the nerve lesion was performed. In two patients, biopsy data were unavailable and the diagnosis was based on the(More)
In this article we study the ligaments and tendons of the posterolateral corner of the knee by anatomic dissection, MR-anatomic correlation, and MR imaging. The posterolateral aspect of two fresh cadaveric knee specimens was dissected. The MR-anatomic correlation was performed in three other specimens. The MR images of 122 patients were reviewed and(More)
To evaluate MRI with thin slices to depict anatomical variations of the subtalar and talocalcaneonavicular joints. Ankle MRI was performed in 51 patients. The articular configurations were differentiated on sagittal T1-weighted and three-dimensional (3D) DESS images. Multiplanar reconstructions were performed. The variation in curvature of the posterior(More)
To evaluate the involvement of the iliotibial band (ITB), the anterolateral ligament (ALL), and the anterior arm of the biceps femoris in MRI-diagnosed Segond fracture and to evaluate other associated findings of Segond fracture. We retrospectively reviewed the MRI of 13 cases of Segond fracture. The studies included proton density-weighted, T2-weighted,(More)
Objective. The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of Baker's cysts on MR images in a paediatric orthopaedic population, to investigate the association of Baker's cyst with joint fluid and joint disorders in children, and to compare the MR appearance of Baker's cysts in children with that previously reported in adults. Materials and(More)
Fibroma of the tendon sheath is a benign tumor that is less common than giant cell tumor of the tendon sheath. Both tumors may present as a painless, slowly enlarging mass. Radiological findings may be similar for both tumors. Histologically, fibroma of the tendon sheath lacks the hemosiderin-laden macrophages that are typical for giant cell tumor of the(More)
To describe the detailed ultrasound anatomy of the anterior, medial, and lateral aspects of the knee and present the ultrasound examination technique used. We present ultrasound using images of patients, volunteer subjects, and cadaveric specimens. We correlate ultrasound images with images of anatomical sections and dissections. The distal quadriceps(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging and pathologic findings in a 28-year-old patient with a giant deep benign fibrous histiocytoma in the popliteal fossa of the right knee are described. The MR imaging findings include a well-delineated oval mass with low signal intensity on T1-, and high signal intensity on T2-weighted, images, and marked peripheral contrast(More)
We present a review of sonography of the flexor and extensor system of the hand and wrist in volunteers and cadavers. CT tenography also was performed in cadaveric specimens. Anatomical structures of the extensor system that were assessed with sonography included the extensor tendons and insertions, retinaculum, and dorsal hood. On the flexor side, the(More)
The scapholunate joint is one of the most involved in wrist injuries. Its stability depends on primary and secondary stabilisers forming together the scapholunate complex. This ligamentous complex is often evaluated by wrist arthroscopy. To avoid surgery as diagnostic procedure, optimization of MR imaging parameters as use of three-dimensional (3D)(More)
