BACKGROUND MRI is not able to directly measure the concentration of contrast agent. It is measured indirectly from the signal intensity (SI). It is very important to know how much contrast agent should be injected to receive a maximum SI in the region of interest (ROI). OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate the maximum relationship between(More)
A patient with a 3-month history of headache refractory to pain medication was admitted. The CT scan and MRI showed evidence of a posterior fossa mass. This was pathologically confirmed as an extra medullary plasmacytoma (EMP). He had a pathologic fracture of the left humerus 7 years ago while the radiologist was unaware at the time of diagnosis. A solitary(More)
BACKGROUND Because of a degenerative component, degenerative rotatory scoliosis seems different from congenital and idiopathic subtypes of the disease. This study aims to examine the orientation of facet joints, as a known cause of degeneration, in patients with degenerative rotatory scoliosis. METHODS Lumbar magnetic resonance (MR) images and plain(More)
BACKGROUND Failed visualization of the fetal nasal bone (NB) by ultrasound at 11 - 14 weeks of gestation is strongly associated with chromosomal abnormalities. Meanwhile, the incidence of the absent fetal NB in normal fetuses in the first trimester in mothers of different ethnic origins differs significantly. It is, therefore, important to assess ethnic(More)
STUDY DESIGN Case-control. PURPOSE To determine whether a disproportion between two neighboring vertebral end plates is associated with degenerative disc disease. OVERVIEW OF LITERATURE Recently, it has been suggested that disproportion of the end plates of two adjacent vertebrae may increase the risk of disc herniation. METHODS Magnetic resonance(More)
BACKGROUND Normal morphological features of the maternal pelvis are an important prerequisite to vaginal delivery. OBJECTIVES We aimed to evaluate the association between obstetric conjugate diameter (OCD) measured by ultrasonography and the type of delivery, vaginally (V) or by cesarean (C) section. PATIENTS AND METHODS Pelvimetry was performed in 200(More)
A 20-year-old woman was admitted to a Gynecology Hospital in her 6(th) month of pregnancy for high blood pressure and tonic-clonic seizure. Primary diagnosis was eclampsia, and for that reason she underwent cesarean section. She also had headache on frontal and parietal areas without nausea or vomiting. There was not a focal neurological sign. Rheumatology(More)
Aim. To evaluate the diagnostic value of ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with ulnar neuropathy at the elbow (UNE). Methods. We prospectively performed electrodiagnostic, ultrasonographic, and MRI studies in UNE patients and healthy controls. Three cross-sectional area (CSA) measurements of the ulnar nerve at multiple levels(More)
