OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to determine the utility of dual-phase MDCT with 3D reconstruction in the staging and resectability of gallbladder carcinoma. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Twenty-seven consecutive patients with suspected gallbladder carcinoma on clinical examination and routine sonography were prospectively analyzed with dual-phase MDCT. Of(More)
Benign or malignant hepatic lesions may rarely mimic inflammatory lesions on imaging. We describe a case of young adult male presenting with pain abdomen and fever of short duration. Imaging revealed large complex multiseptated lesion in the right lobe of liver. Complicated hydatid cyst was kept as first differential diagnosis depending on clinic-radiologic(More)
Portal cavernoma cholangiopathy (PCC) is defined as abnormalities in the extrahepatic biliary system including the cystic duct and gallbladder with or without abnormalities in the 1st and 2nd generation biliary ducts in a patient with portal cavernoma. Presence of a portal cavernoma, typical cholangiographic changes on endoscopic or magnetic resonance(More)
Nitrogen is the most widely used fertilizer nutrient, and it is a universally deficient nutrient too, which often severely restricts the growth and yield of crops. To improve N fertilizer management, soil-plant system models can be applied to simulate adequate N supply for both, optimal crop growth and minimal N losses. The likely impact of climate change(More)
Portal cavernoma cholangiopathy (PCC) refers to the biliary changes which occur in the setting of extrahepatic portal vein obstruction and secondary portal cavernoma formation. The main radiological findings include the vascular changes in the form of portosystemic collaterals and biliary changes in the form of extrinsic impressions and strictures. Till(More)

Present study proposes a computer-aided diagnostic system to assist radiologists in identifying focal liver lesions in B-mode ultrasound images. The proposed system can be used to discriminate focal liver diseases such as Cyst, Hemangioma, Hepatocellular carcinoma and Metastases, along with Normal liver. The study is performed with 111 real ultrasound(More)
BACKGROUND Computed tomographic colonography (CTC) is a new technique for detecting colonic neoplasms. Data on the utility of this method in the Indian population are limited. METHODS Forty-two patients with symptoms of colonic disease underwent CTC and conventional colonoscopy (CC) within one week of each other and the findings at these two(More)
