Computed tomography (CT) of the knee was performed in 160 patients following double-contrast arthrography. Seventy-five synovial folds on the medial wall of the knee joint were found, and 63 of these plicae could be considered mediopatellar plicae. In 10 of the 63 cases, long, thick mediopatellar plicae were found, which could lead to a mechanical internal(More)

A prospective study of the diagnostic yield of ultrasound (US) and ERCP was made on a continuous series of 424 patients. Technical failures were slightly more frequent with US (11%) than with ERCP (8%), while US proved more accurate than ERCP in the diagnosis of focal hepatic disease--94% of correct diagnosis versus 41% (n = 17). In diffuse hepatic disease(More)
Sixty seven patients with pain in the knee were studied. A compound tomography (CT) score indicating chondromalacia was devised, based on the results of CT after arthrography. This score takes account of the regularity, the congruity, and the imbibition of contrast material. Thus the patients could be divided into four groups: those who definitely have(More)
