Due to ongoing technological advances, the range of clinical applications for diffusion-weighted MR imaging has expanded to now include abdominal pathology. Current applications for liver pathology include two main directions. First, oncologic imaging with detection, characterization and follow-up of lesions. Second, evaluation of diffuse liver diseases,(More)
Three different techniques will be discussed. The first procedure is the biopsy of the lumbar vertebra or lumbar intervertebral disc for patients with tumors or infections of the lumbar spine. The different needles that can be used in function of consistency and location of the lesion will be shown. The transpedicular and posterolateral techniques will be(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effectiveness of ultrasonography (US) in depicting lesions of the tendons, arteries, and nerves caused by penetrating wounds of the volar aspect of the hand, with surgical exploration as the reference standard. MATERIALS AND METHODS Consecutive patients seen at one center over a 2-month period in 2006 were prospectively included.(More)
According to a pathological definition, a bony sequestrum is defined as a piece of devitalized bone that has been separated from the surrounding bone during the process of necrosis. However, the radiological definition of a sequestrum is different and refers to an image of calcification visible within a lucent lesion, completely separated from the(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate MR imaging in detecting and characterizing secondary reactive synovitis and correlate the results with arthroscopy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective study of 10 patients referred for MR imaging and arthroscopy of the knee or shoulder. The diagnosis of reactive synovitis was confirmed by arthroscopy and pathological examination.(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the results of combination of D-Dimer test and simple clinical model for the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). MATERIALS AND METHODS Inclusion: clinical suspicion of DVT. Non inclusion criteria were Clinical model performed by the referring physician included probability varying from high to low. D-Dimer test was performed by(More)
Ankylosing spondylitis is the most common spondyloarthropathy. It is characterized by enthesopathy (inflammation at the insertion of ligaments, tendons or fascia to bone). The os calcis is most frequently involved. Additional peripheral manifestations include synovitis and dactylitis. Unlike radiographs that demonstrate late manifestations of the disease,(More)
Primary leiomyosarcoma of bone is a rarely reported tumor of elderly subjects. It usually shows an aggressive osteolytic pattern on plain radiographs and involves predominantly the metaphyses of long bones. We report a case of primary leiomyosarcoma of bone, which is atypical by its epiphyseal location, a non-aggressive pattern on plain radiographs and its(More)
Some early complications (hematoma, spondylodiscitis, pseudomeningocele) can occur with all types of surgery while late complications vary with the type of surgery. After discectomy, postsurgical changes (osseous and ligamentous defects, scar tissue, granulation tissue) should be distinguished from postsurgical complications or recurrent disease (recurrent(More)
