Fat necrosis is a benign nonsuppurative inflammatory process of adipose tissue. Occasionally fat necrosis may mimic a breast cancer clinically, mammographically, and sonographically. There have been some previous reports on the MR imaging of the fat necrosis. In some MR findings of fat necrosis, it was difficult to distinguish it from malignant lesions. We(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this investigation is to evaluate the usefulness of diffusion-weighted half-Fourier single-shot turbo spin echo (DW-HASTE) imaging in differentiating invasive ductal carcinoma from fibroadenoma. METHOD The DW-HASTE imaging was performed in patients with invasive ductal carcinoma (n = 16) and fibroadenoma (n = 6). Images were(More)
Imaging findings of hepatic lesions of visceral larva migrans are reported. A 44-year-old man presented with chills, eruptions, marked leukocytosis (31,400/microlitter), and eosinophilia (eosinophil, 72%). Multiple liver nodules were detected as low-density lesions on computed tomography (CT). They were visualized as high signal intensity lesions on(More)
AIM We estimated the usefulness of our new scale to rate medial temporal atrophy with short inversion time inversion recovery images. METHODS Alzheimer's disease (AD) subjects (n= 34) and non-demented subjects (n= 19) were recruited for this study. First, coronal short inversion time inversion recovery images were scanned vertical to the long axis of(More)
A 65-year-old man with small cell lung cancer treated with two courses of chemotherapy manifested appetite loss and abdominal distention 10 days before admission. Helical CT scanning of the abdomen and pelvis disclosed marked hepatomegaly without any visible nodular lesion in the hepatic parenchyma. He died of severe liver dysfunction with multiorgan(More)
The purpose of this study is to describe the cause-specific survival rate, local control rate, salvage rate of neck metastasis, and post-treatment eating and speaking conditions for stage III mobile tongue squamous cell carcinomas and its subgroups. Between 1968 and 1999, 117 previously untreated patients with stage III mobile tongue carcinomas underwent(More)
We report the case of a 65-year-old man with blunt abdominal trauma following a fall from a three-meter-high roof. Contrast-enhanced abdominal computed tomography (CT) obtained in early phase showed intense contrast enhancement in the urinary tract as dense as artery. This finding was considered characteristic of traumatic communication between artery and(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Three-dimensional time-of-flight MR angiography (3D TOF MRA) often discloses prominent posterior cerebral artery (PCA) laterality in the setting of M1-segment middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion. We sought to analyze the implications of prominent PCA laterality at 3D TOF MRA. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 3D TOF MRA and(More)
BACKGROUND Allergen avoidance is recommended when treating atopic asthma. OBJECTIVES Soft toys are often kept in close proximity to children and may serve as a source of exposure. Due to the potential danger from the mite allergen content of these toys, Der 1 from toys was measured. METHODS We quantified the level of Der 1 (Der p 1 + Der f 1) in both 30(More)
