OBJECTIVES To determine the chemical composition of pure and mixed urinary calculi by multislice helical computed tomography (CT) in an in vitro setting. CT is becoming the preferred radiologic examination in diagnosis and management of calculus disease. The management of calculus disease can be facilitated by ascertaining the stone composition. Unnecessary(More)
The differential diagnosis of benign tumors and tumor-like lesions of the hand and wrist region is important with regard to choosing the therapy (medical versus surgical), or to decide to just follow-up the lesion. In most of the cases the proper analysis of MRI findings in correlation with the patient's history is sufficient to meet a specific diagnosis.(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation of tendon integrity following open cuff repairs with functional and isokinetic strength measurements. Twenty-six shoulders of 25 patients were included in this study. At the final follow-up, 14 repairs (53.8%) were intact and 12 repairs (46.2%) had failed on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Mean UCLA(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine the reliability of standard axial MR images alone in the diagnosis of meniscal tears of the knee and in combination with other imaging planes. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty-two patients (55 men, seven women; age range, 23-68 years) with a prior MRI examination who underwent arthroscopic surgery of the(More)
Hydatid cysts of the musculoskeletal system are rare. Unusual magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of an infected primary hydatid cyst of the biceps femoris muscle are presented in a 40-year-old man on hemodialysis for chronic renal failure. No daughter cysts were present within the mother cyst cavity, but there was a fatty nodule which has not(More)
OBJECTIVE Osmotic demyelination syndrome has been reported in patients with end-stage renal disease, but the specific MRI findings in this patient group have not been documented in detail. Our aims were to present the brain MRI findings during an episode after hemodialysis and at follow-up, and to identify possible factors that may contribute to lesion(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the results of fertility-sparing treatment of early-stage endometrial cancer (EC) in patients treated at Turkish gynecologic oncology centers, and to present a review of the literature. METHODS Thirteen healthcare centers in Turkey were contacted to determine if they were eligible to participate in the study. Centers that were(More)
Background: We assessed the value of magnetic resonance (MR) rectography in diagnosing rectocele by using a combination of oral gadopentetate dimeglumine and polyethylene glycol solutions. Methods: T1-weighted, breath-hold, fast low-angle shot sequences were made in 22 patients in resting and straining states in the supine position before and after(More)
We present the case of a 44-year-old woman with chondromyxoid fibroma of temporal bone origin. Since this is the least common bone tumor of cartilaginous origin, it is highly unusual to find this tumor in the skull. In fact, the literature describes 18 cases of this form of neoplasia arising in the skull, only 4 of these having originated in the temporal(More)
