Bone involvement is an unusual manifestation of secondary syphilis, but little information is available in the English-language literature. We carried out a systematic review of the English-language literature from 1964 to 2013, describing cases of secondary syphilis with bone involvement. We also describe a case of secondary syphilis with multiple(More)
OBJECTIVE We wished to report on the MRI findings of non-infectious ischiogluteal bursitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS The MRI findings of 17 confirmed cases of non-infectious ischiogluteal bursitis were analyzed: four out of the 17 cases were confirmed with surgery, and the remaining 13 cases were confirmed with MRI plus the clinical data. RESULTS The(More)
Marfan syndrome is an inherited multisystemic connective-tissue disease that is caused by a mutation of the fibrillin-1 gene. The syndrome is characterized by a wide range of clinical manifestations. Common cardiovascular manifestations, most of which are substantial contributors to mortality, include annuloaortic ectasia with or without aortic valve(More)
UNLABELLED We compared the diagnostic sensitivity of (99m)Tc-methylene diphosphonate bone SPECT and MRI in the early detection of femoral head osteonecrosis after renal transplantation. METHODS The patients were 24 renal allograft recipients who underwent both bone SPECT and MRI within 1 mo of each other because of hip pain but normal findings on plain(More)
We present a case of a subcutaneous encapsulated fat necrosis of the upper extremity that mimicked subcutaneous liposarcoma because of heterogeneous signal intensity, its relatively large size, and pronounced enhancement on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). For this case, we present the radiologic findings including MRI, positron emission(More)
The present study describes the use of the "moving-shot" technique for successful radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of malignant musculoskeletal soft-tissue tumors. Ultrasonography-guided RFA was performed in 6 malignant soft-tissue tumors in 5 patients. Short-term follow-up after RFA (8-27 weeks) showed that complete necrosis was achieved in all lesions, and 5(More)
BACKGROUND Non-ionic radiocontrast media (RCM) is rarely associated with hypersensitivity reactions. Premedication of patients who reacted previously to RCM with systemic corticosteroids and/or antihistamines can help reduce recurrent hypersensitivity reactions. However, premedication is still not prescribed in many cases for various reasons. This study(More)
OBJECTIVE We wanted to investigate the relationship between the magnetic resonance (MR) findings and the clinical outcome after treatment with non-surgical transforaminal epidural steroid injections (ESI) for lumbar herniated intervertebral disc (HIVD) patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Transforaminal ESI were performed in 91 patients (50 males and 41(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the characteristic US and MR findings of subcutaneous epidermal inclusion cysts. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy-nine patients with subcutaneous epidermal inclusion cysts underwent US (n = 70), MR (n = 7), or both (n = 2). On US, the margin, shape, echogenicity, through-transmission, wall, internal debris and vascularity were(More)
OBJECTIVE Tumor angiogenesis is an important factor for tumor growth, treatment response and prognosis. Noninvasive imaging methods for the evaluation of tumor angiogenesis have been studied, but a method for the quantification of tumor angiogenesis has not been established. This study was designed to evaluate tumor angiogenesis in a rat breast tumor model(More)
