Appendicitis: evaluation of sensitivity, specificity, and predictive values of US, Doppler US, and laboratory findings.
TLDR
A threshold 6-mm diameter of the appendix under compression is the most accurate US finding for appendicitis and has high NPV and PPV.
Painful infection at the site of hip prosthesis: CT imaging.
TLDR
CT is accurate in the diagnosis of painful infection at the site of a hip prosthesis on the basis of soft-tissue findings, whereas periprosthetic bone abnormalities are not useful.
Detection of hepatic metastases: ferumoxides-enhanced MR imaging versus unenhanced MR imaging and CT during arterial portography.
TLDR
Ferumoxides-enhanced MR imaging is more accurate than unenhancing MR imaging and at least as accurate as CTAP for the detection of hepatic metastases.
Efficacy of transforaminal versus interspinous corticosteroid injectionin discal radiculalgia – a prospective, randomised, double-blind study
TLDR
In recent discal radiculalgia, the efficacy of radio-guided transforaminal epidural corticosteroid injections was higher than that obtained with blindly-performed interspinous injections.
Acute mesenteric ischemia: diagnosis with contrast-enhanced CT.
TLDR
Dynamic, contrast-enhanced CT is a valuable tool in the diagnosis of and determination of prognosis in acute mesenteric ischemia.
Pancreas divisum: evaluation with MR cholangiopancreatography.
TLDR
MR cholangiopancreatography is an accurate tool in the diagnosis of pancreas divisum and could replace ERCP.
Anatomic variants of the biliary tree: diagnosis with MR cholangiopancreatography.
TLDR
MR cholangiopancreatography is accurate in the diagnosis of anatomic variants of the biliary tree that may increase the risk of bile duct injury during laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
Acute osteoporotic vertebral collapse: open study on percutaneous injection of acrylic surgical cement in 20 patients.
TLDR
Vertebroplasty for the treatment of osteoporotic vertebral collapse is a minimally invasive procedure that provides immediate pain relief and enables the patient to become quickly mobile.
Comparative Study of the Accuracy of Breast Resection in Oncoplastic Surgery and Quadrantectomy in Breast Cancer
TLDR
Oncoplastic surgery achieves more accurate tumor resection than standard quadrantectomy, and this approach might be useful in extending the indications for conservative therapy.
Acute colonic diverticulitis: prospective comparative evaluation with US and CT.
TLDR
US and CT findings result in similar accuracy for the evaluation of patients suspected of having diverticulitis.
