Sixty-one total body I-131 scans performed on 29 patients who were post-thyroidectomy for differentiated thyroid cancer were retrospectively reviewed to determine the frequency of hepatic visualization. The liver was seen in 52% of the patients. Diffuse liver uptake was present on 5 of 38 (13%) diagnostic (10 mCi) scans and on 12 of 23 (52%) post-therapy… (More)
115 pregnant girls aged 13-17 years were investigated during the third trimester for endocervical infection with six sexually transmissible microorganisms. Specimens from 21 patients destroyed the tissue cell monolayers for propagation of Chlamydia trachomatis, but 11 were no longer toxic when recultured after freezing or with additional antimicrobial… (More)
Anomalies of the clavicle usually result from defective development in which a portion of the bone is absent. Duplication of the clavicle is a rare anatomic variant.
Abnormalities of right and left ventricular ejection fraction and segmental wall motion may be detected by radionuclide angiography (RNA) following blunt chest trauma. Of 111 patients with blunt chest trauma who were admitted to a large regional shock trauma center and underwent combined first-pass and equilibrium gated RNA, abnormalities were present in 40… (More)
Accurate detection of hepatic metastases is necessary to properly stage and follow many malignancies. Nineteen patients underwent computed tomographic (CT) examination with ethiodized oil emulsion 13 (EOE-CT) and liver scintigraphy within 1 month of an exploratory laparotomy. The sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of these two imaging procedures were… (More)
A case of intraoperative pneumothorax preceded by a pulmonary embolus is presented. A high index of suspicion led to further investigation, after resolution of the pneumothorax was not accompanied by clinical improvement. The literature is reviewed, and the various methods of prophylaxis and treatment discussed.
Adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma is a relatively uncommon disease, most often found in Japan, the Caribbean, the southeastern United States, and South America. To date there have been few reports of its skeletal manifestations. A case is reported in a 44-year-old man in which a short history of swelling of the hands and feet and painful motion in the fingers… (More)
The radionuclide bone scans and medical records of 62 patients with osteogenic sarcoma were reviewed to determine the significance of abnormalities demonstrated by the initial scintigraph at sites other than the primary lesion. 94% (58/62) of patients had abnormally increased tracer uptake at sites other than the primary tumor location. Eighty percent… (More)
Atresia and hypoplasia of the bile ducts are the most common congenital biliary anomalies of clinical importance. Surgical correction can help about 10% of these infants. However, surgery should be performed within the first month of life to avoid irreversible liver parenchymal changes. It is difficult to separate the surgical condition, biliary atresia,… (More)
