OBJECTIVE Our objective was to determine the accuracy, precision, and reliability of MR imaging as a technique for measurement of the femoral antetorsional angle. SUBJECTS AND METHODS We used MR imaging to measure anteversion of the femoral neck in 44 patients: 19 children (range, 3-17 years old; mean, 11 years old) and 25 adults (range, 18-83 years old;(More)
Mesenchymal hamartoma of the liver (MHL) is an uncommon cystic mass of infancy that is a developmental anomaly rather than a neoplasm. Fourteen cases of MHL were retrospectively reviewed. Grossly, MHL is a solitary mass with cystic spaces of variable size. Patients are seen initially with painless progressive abdominal enlargement. On plain films, MHL(More)
Fifty cases of hepatoblastoma were reviewed. Virtually all patients were infants or young children with hepatomegaly or a mass. Calcification seen on 11 of 20 radiographs was often in a pattern of small chunks, and eight of these correlated with osteoid formation in histologically mixed hepatoblastomas. Angiography generally showed tumor vascularity,(More)
Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is a powerful tool in the evaluation of primary liver neoplasms. Determination of tumor extent and tissue characterization is provided with standard spin-echo T1- and T2-weighted imaging and is enhanced by the application of advanced sequences such as gradient-echo, fast spin-echo, and fat suppression techniques.(More)
Although many hepatic lesions can overlap significantly in their imaging appearance, an imaging approach that is based upon identifying the pathologic and functional components of a lesion can aid in distinction from other entities. In this manner, the diagnostic evaluation can be tailored using the appropriate imaging modality for the lesion at hand. An(More)
AIM A dose ranging multicentre phase-II clinical trial was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of ultrasmall superparamagnetic iron oxide (USPIO) ferumoxtran-10 for magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of focal hepatic lesions. MATERIAL AND METHODS Ninety-nine patients with focal liver lesions received USPIO at a dose of 0.8 (n = 35), 1.1 (n = 32), or 1.7 (n =(More)
Bowel ischemia may be caused by many conditions and manifest with typical or atypical and specific or nonspecific clinical, laboratory, and radiologic findings. It may mimic various intestinal diseases and be confused with certain nonischemic conditions clinically and at computed tomography (CT). Bowel ischemia severity ranges from mild (generally transient(More)
This study was conducted to compare the sensitivity and specificity of abdominal magnetic resonance imaging using oral superparamagnetic iron oxide with oral contrast-enhanced computed tomography in the detection of GI pathology. Overall sensitivity was calculated to be 83% for OECT compared to 67% by SPIO MRI. Specificity for OECT was 68% compared to 89%(More)
