OBJECTIVE To study the sensitivity of MRI performed utilising vaginal and rectal opacification with ultrasound gel in the detection of deep pelvic endometriosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS This was a prospective monocentric study. All patients evaluated by the gynaecologist for pelvic pain, endometriosis or infertility were included. Axial and sagittal(More)
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)
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)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study is to assess retrospectively the effectiveness and safety of CT-guided percutaneous drainage and to determine the factors influencing clinical success and mortality in patients with infectious necrotizing pancreatitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS From April 1997 to December 2005, 48 consecutive patients (33 men and 15 women;(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)
Malabsorptive syndromes and micronutrient deficiencies represent well-known long-term complications of bariatric surgery. Wernicke's encephalopathy (WE), a neurologic manifestation of thiamine deficiency, has been classically associated with alcoholism or severe malnutrition, but rarely reported after bariatric surgery. Herein, we describe the case of a(More)
Change detection is a critical task in the diagnosis of many slowly evolving pathologies. This paper describes an approach that semi-automatically performs this task using longitudinal medical images. We are specifically interested in meningiomas, which experts often find difficult to monitor as the tumor evolution can be obscured by image artifacts. We(More)
We report on the case of a patient admitted for epigastric pain. An abdominal ultrasound revealed a voluminous cystic lesion of the left hepatic lobe. In magnetic resonance imaging, the mass had a liquid-liquid level that was spontaneously hyperintense on T(1)-weighted images and hypointense on T(2)-weighted images. Magnetic resonance cholangiography(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to define relevant MRI signs allowing preoperative diagnosis of posterior cul-de-sac obliteration in patients with deep pelvic endometriosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS This retrospective study included patients who underwent pelvic MRI completed by a laparoscopic examination. Three radiologists performed the MRI review(More)
A case of a pancreatic schwannoma is presented. The patient, a previously healthy woman, is hospitalized with the diagnosis of purulent pleuritis. Ultrasonography (US) of the abdomen shows a 3-cm mass in the head of the pancreas. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) reveals, in T1-weighted sequences, the mass to be hypointense, and an early and persistent(More)
