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)
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)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to assess the value of abdominal CT and MRI in determining the severity of cirrhosis secondary to hepatitis compared to Child-Pugh classification. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 23 patients who were clinically and histologically diagnosed with chronic liver disease secondary to viral hepatitis. Each patient(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 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)
We present a 10-month-old child with central pontine myelinolysis (CPM) secondary to chronic active hepatitis due to cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection. A total of 35 paediatric cases of pontine and/or extrapontine myelinolysis are reported and, to our knowledge, CPM secondary to CMV hepatitis in an infant has not been previously reported. The MRI findings are(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)
