A technique for performing core biopsies of indeterminate masses of the extracranial head and neck is described. Four patients with suspicious masses of the extracranial head and neck underwent coaxial core biopsies through an 18-gauge Hawkins-Akins blunt tip needle. Three of the four patients had diagnostically adequate samples. There were no neurologic or(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Evaluation of images of perineural tumor spread in patients with head and neck malignancies is essential for planning treatment and determining the patient's prognosis. Although the communications between the facial and trigeminal nerves are not widely known, they may provide a route for tumor growth. The purpose of this study was to(More)
Until recently all callosal lipomas were grouped together. However, these lipomas can be clearly separated into two groups having different morphologies and associated brain anomalies. One group consists of anteriorly situated round or cylinder-shaped lipomas, termed tubulonodular. These lipomas are generally greater than 2 cm in diameter and have a high(More)
PURPOSE Our purpose was to determine the variation in location, distribution, and sex predilection of arytenoid cartilage sclerosis in a population of patients without laryngeal cancer as an aid to understanding the significance of this entity when seen in patients with laryngeal cancer. METHODS One hundred CT examinations of patients of different ages(More)
PURPOSE To compare T2-weighted fat-suppressed fast spin-echo imaging with fat-suppressed conventional spin-echo imaging in the detection of normal intraorbital and pericavernous anatomy and orbital disease, and to determine the efficacy of fat saturation with T2-weighted fast spin-echo imaging of the cavernous sinus. METHODS Contrast-to-noise ratios of(More)
This study was intended to delineate whether electrical stimulation could significantly reduce the amount of joint contracture in a rat model. Rat knees were surgically immobilized in 150 degrees of flexion. Two groups of rats had sham electrodes, and two groups were electrically stimulated. All rats were killed 14 days after surgery. The degree of joint(More)
PURPOSE To present the spectrum of CT and MR findings of glomus tumors of the head and neck successfully treated with radiation therapy. METHODS The patient charts and all CT and MR studies of 24 patients (25 tumors) who had been successfully treated with radiation therapy were retrospectively reviewed. Eighteen patients had pre- and posttreatment imaging(More)
PURPOSE To compare the uptake of 2-[F-18] fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (fludeoxyglucose F-18; F-18 FDG) and thallous chloride Tl 201, using single-photon emission CT (SPECT), for the detection and location of squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck. METHODS Five patients with biopsy-proved squamous cell carcinoma of the upper aerodigestive tract(More)
