In this paper, we propose a fully automatic method for the coupled 3D localization and segmentation of lower abdomen structures. We apply it to the joint segmentation of the prostate and bladder in a database of CT scans of the lower abdomen of male patients. A flexible approach on the bladder allows the process to easily adapt to high shape variation and(More)
To study the sensitivity of MRI performed utilising vaginal and rectal opacification with ultrasound gel in the detection of deep pelvic endometriosis. This was a prospective monocentric study. All patients evaluated by the gynaecologist for pelvic pain, endometriosis or infertility were included. Axial and sagittal T2-weighted images were performed both(More)
We evaluated and compared the radiological images of the spine of 111 patients affected by myeloma, bone metastases, and fractures secondary to osteoporosis demonstrated in low-dose computed tomographic (CT) scans and those demonstrated in conventional radiographic studies. From the analysis of the data obtained, it appears that the duration of the CT(More)
This prospective study compares repetitive thick-slab single-shot projection magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) with endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) for the detection of choledocholithiasis. Fifty-seven consecutive patients (36 women, mean age 61) referred for suspected choledocholithiasis underwent MRCP, followed by EUS. Each procedure was(More)
Nineteen months after a Whipple procedure for pancreatic carcinoma, a 79-year-old woman developed recurrent tumoral strictures of the bile ducts and afferent Roux-en-Y limb with resultant jaundice, cholangitis, and liver abscess. Transhepatic abscess and biliary drainages were performed first. Afferent loop obstruction was too far from biliary anastomosis(More)
OBJECTIVE MRI was the first imaging technique to permit the visualization of the uterine junctional zone and remains the imaging method of choice to evaluate it and its associated pathology. CONCLUSION Adenomyosis can be diagnosed using MRI with a diagnostic accuracy of 85%. The most important MR finding in making the diagnosis is thickness of the(More)
Peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC) have the advantage of limiting the risk of accidents during installation and are easy to remove. Its use in oncology remains debated because of possible infectious complications. We analyzed 52 PICC in patients with hematological tumor from Nice Hospital. An installation failure was noted in 5.8% of cases.(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this retrospective and monocentric study was to describe the magnetic resonance cholangiography (MRC) features of biliary abnormalities related to extrahepatic obstruction of the portal vein (EHOPV). METHODS From September 2001 to May 2003, MRC was performed in 10 consecutive patients who had a portal thrombosis. RESULTS Biliary(More)
Many atypical locations for deep endometriosis exist that are not well known to both the radiologist and gynecologist. This work explores these unusual localizations, which we have arbitrarily grouped under the term “anterior endometriosis” in contrast to the more common posterior presentation of deep endometriosis that has been so well described in the(More)
We report a case of a patient admitted to our hospital for acute pelvic pain. Ultrasounds and abdominal CT scan found a voluminous mass situated in the upper urinary bladder and contiguous to the uterus and to the ovaries. Magnetic resonance imaging identified a pedicle connecting the uterus to the mass which had an aspect of a necrobiotic leiomyoma.(More)
