PURPOSE To compare a computed tomographic (CT)-based scoring system with nonimaging indexes of pulmonary status in patients with cystic fibrosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Pulmonary CT findings were assessed in 117 patients with cystic fibrosis, with cases classified according to three groups by age; 0-5 years, 6-16 years, and 17 years and older. Images were(More)
UNLABELLED Nuclear medicine plays an important role in the imaging of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Somatostatin receptor scintigraphy (SRS) with (111)In-labeled somatostatin receptor analogs is a standard procedure for the detection and staging of NET. Based on the ability of NETs to store biogenic amines, this study evaluated whether 6-(18)F-fluoro-L-DOPA(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of our study was to assess the evolution of pulmonary CT findings in cystic fibrosis patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Serial CT examinations were performed in four different follow-up periods on 107 patients with cystic fibrosis. Lung images of the initial and follow-up CT were reviewed and scored for specific morphologic findings. CT(More)
The aim of this study was firstly to describe the spectrum of imaging findings seen in iliopsoas bursitis, and secondly to compare cross-sectional imaging techniques in the demonstration of the extent, size and appearance of the iliopsoas bursitis as referenced by surgery. Imaging studies of 18 patients (13 women, 5 men; mean age 53 years) with surgically(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to describe the spectrum of abnormalities seen in generalized cystic lymphangiomatosis as shown by CT and MR imaging and to correlate these findings to gross pathology. CONCLUSION MR imaging and CT may substantially broaden visualization of the spectrum of abnormalities seen in generalized cystic lymphangiomatosis by(More)
Imaging of amino acid transport in brain tumours is more sensitive than fluorine-18 2-fluoro-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography (PET). The most frequently used tracer in this field is carbon-11 methionine (MET), which is unavailable for PET centres without a cyclotron because of its short half-life. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the(More)
AIM To determine the frequency and the distribution of early pulmonary lesions in patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and a normal chest X-ray on thin-section CT and to correlate the CT findings with the results of pulmonary function tests and clinical data. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-five patients with clinically proven AS and no history of(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of our study was to assess the diagnostic potential of helical CT-enteroclysis (HCTE) and to correlate our findings to endoscopic and surgical results. METHODS Twenty-eight consecutive patients suffering from histologic proven Crohn disease underwent HCTE and endoscopy within 4 weeks. HCTE findings were read by two observers in(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to assess the diagnostic value of CT enteroclysis compared with conventional enteroclysis in patients with Crohn's disease. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Fifty consecutive patients (26 women, 24 men; mean age, 36.3 years; age range, 18-52 years) with histologically proven Crohn's disease underwent CT enteroclysis and(More)
