Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has opened new possibilities to current diagnostic radiology in the evaluation of bone marrow. Compared with other imaging modalities, MRI is the only technique able to directly visualise bone marrow with its different components of red and yellow marrow. Other advantages of MRI are high-contrast resolution and multiplanar(More)
Electrolyte alterations and extra-renal disorders are quite frequent in patients undergoing haemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis. The native kidneys may be the site of important pathologies in patients undergoing dialysis, especially in the form of acquired renal cystic disease with frequent malignant transformation. Renal neoplasms represents an important(More)
This study was done to evaluate by direct comparison the image quality of magnetic resonance urography (MRU) and computed tomography urography (CTU) and to assess the diagnostic confidence of the two techniques in detecting urothelial malignancy in patients with haematuria Thirty-five patients with haematuria underwent both CTU and MRU. Two different(More)
This study sought to assess the diagnostic accuracy of 64-slice computed tomography urography (CTU) in evaluation of the urinary tract. A total of 322 CTU procedures were carried out in 317 consecutive patients (mean age 64.4 years). The findings were compared with previous and subsequent patient workup considering both laboratory and imaging studies, such(More)
We report a case of a patient who developed high-flow priapism following a Winter procedure performed for the treatment of low-flow ischemic priapism. During the creation of bilateral cavernosal-glandular shunts, the tip of the left dorsal artery was accidentally lacerated. A fistula developed through the shunt between the torn artery and the cavernosal(More)
This study assessed means by which to optimise 64-slice computed tomography urography (CTU) in evaluating the urinary tract, with a view to obtaining the best trade-off between image quality and radiation dose. Image quality was analysed in terms of spatial and contrast resolution on several scans of a phantom performed with automatic dose modulation and(More)
