To assess the accuracy of computed tomography (CT) in the evaluation of bronchiectasis, we performed thin-section CT in 36 patients with clinical findings suggestive of this diagnosis. CT was performed with 1.5-mm section thickness and 10-mm intersection spacing. Bilateral (eight patients) and unilateral (28 patients) bronchograms were obtained. CT and(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate treatment of osteoid osteoma with computed tomography (CT)-guided percutaneous excision and immediate follow-up scintigraphy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixteen consecutive adolescent and adult patients underwent CT-guided percutaneous excision of a nidus with 14-gauge biopsy cutting needles, with local anesthesia. After the presence of(More)
We present five cases with confirmed diagnosis of pulmonary alveolar microlithiasis that illustrate the appearance of this rare chronic lung disease on conventional and high-resolution CT. Pulmonary alveolar microlithiasis is characterized by widespread intraalveolar calcification of both lungs. Conventional CT confirmed the inferior and posterior(More)
We present a measurement of the time-dependent CP-violating (CPV) asymmetries in B0-->K(0)(S)pi(0) decays based on 124x10(6) Upsilon(4S)-->BB decays collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy B factory at SLAC. In a sample containing 122+/-16 signal decays, we obtain the magnitudes of the direct CPV asymmetry(More)
OBJECTIVE The anti-Hu syndrome (bearing the name of the patient in whom the antibody was first discovered) is characterized by a paraneoplastic encephalomyelitis or sensory neuronopathy and the presence of a specific antibody in the serum or CSF and is associated with lung cancer in most patients who have the syndrome. The objective of this study was to(More)
The diagnostic value of chest radiography and high-resolution computed tomography (CT) in chronic diffuse interstitial lung disease (CDILD) was assessed in 140 consecutive patients with diffuse infiltration of the lung visible at radiography. Radiographs and CT scans were separately read by three independent observers without knowledge of clinical and(More)
Eighteen patients with pulmonary lesions of histiocytosis X were studied with high-resolution computed tomography (CT). Thin-walled cysts were found in all but one patient. The other abnormalities included nodules (n = 14), cavitated nodules (n = 3), thick-walled cysts (n = 7), reticulation (n = 4), ground-glass opacities (n = 4), and irregular interfaces(More)
Congenital abnormalities of the bronchi have been classically described with chest X-rays, conventional tomography, bronchography, CT and MR imaging. Recently, the capacity of spiral CT to explore a complete volume with no gap and excellent multiplanar reformations has been emphasized. The contribution of this technique to the analysis of congenital(More)
Chest radiographs, thin-section computed tomographic (CT) scans, and results of pulmonary function tests in nine women with pulmonary lymphangiomyomatosis and two women with pulmonary tuberous sclerosis were retrospectively evaluated. In all patients, CT demonstrated thin-walled cysts less than 20 mm in diameter scattered at random in all parts of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the computed tomographic (CT) analysis of the distribution of gas and tissue in the lungs of patients with ARDS with that in healthy volunteers. DESIGN Prospective study over a 53-month period. SETTING Fourteen-bed surgical intensive care unit of a university hospital. PATIENTS AND PARTICIPANTS Seventy-one consecutive patients(More)
