Fast spin-echo sequences was compared with conventional spin-echo sequences at 0.5 Tesla, in 130 patients who attended for routine brain MRI. Artefacts and contrast behaviour of anatomical structures and lesions were assessed visually and quantitatively by contrast-to-noise ratios. The difference between conventional spin-echo and fast spin-echo in contrast(More)
PURPOSE In clinical practice, atypical small acinar proliferation (ASAP) and high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (HGPIN) are two common findings on prostate biopsies. Knowing the frequency of a prostate cancer diagnosis on repeat biopsies would aid primary treating physicians regarding their decisions in suspicious cases. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVES The relationship between adenosine deaminase and various cancers has been investigated in several studies. However, serum adenosine deaminase activity and carbonic anhydrase and catalase activities in patients with bladder cancer have not previously been reported. Therefore, the aim of this study was to measure serum adenosine deaminase, carbonic(More)
INTRODUCTION The spine and cardiac cavities are uncommon locations for hydatid disease. Spinal and cardiac hydatid cases separately constitute only 0.5-1% of all hydatid cases. We reported a case with spinal and cardiac involvement simultaneously. Clinical and radiological findings of this unique case are discussed. CASE REPORT A thirty-four-year-old male(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the chromosomal changes in patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 54 patients diagnosed with clinical BPH underwent transurethral prostate resection to address their primary urological problem. All patients were evaluated by use of a comprehensive medical history and rectal digital(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the predictive role of the neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR), mean platelet volume (MPV), and platelet count (PLT) in the diagnosis of testicular torsion (TT) and testicular viability following TT. MATERIALS AND METHODS We analyzed two study groups in this retrospective study: 75 patients with a(More)
INTRODUCTION Isolated rupture of the renal pelvis is a very rare condition and thus causes delays in the diagnosis of the rupture. It is most commonly seen in the setting of obstructive ureteric calculus. Other rare causes include neoplasms, trauma, and iatrogenic procedures. Diagnosis is usually established on computed tomography (CT) which demonstrates(More)
Some hematologic markers, such as the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio, and mean platelet volume (MPV), have gained popularity as possible predictive factors in oncologic and nononcologic inf lammatory processes [1-3]. We have read the letter about our recently published report, " Predictive Role of Hematologic Parameters(More)
INTRODUCTION To assess the clinical presentation of patients who underwent surgical exploration for acute scrotum and to investigate the potentially related factors for differential dignosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the medical records of 97 patients who underwent surgical exploration for acute scrotum between May 2007 and July(More)
INTRODUCTION Trace elements are primary components of biological structures; however, they can be toxic when their concentrations are higher than those needed for biological functions. MATERIALS AND METHODS In the present study serum levels of trace elements were measured in 30 patients (mean age was 26.9±11.2 years) newly diagnosed with germ cell(More)
