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)
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)
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 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)
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)
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)
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)
OBJECTIVE Our objective was to show the usefulness of MR cholangiopancreatography in assessing biliary complications after liver transplantation. CONCLUSION MR cholangiopancreatography is the best noninvasive tool for the diagnosis and assessment of biliary complications.
A 39-year-old patient was evaluated for pelvic pain and infection following a surgical abortion performed via aspiration curettage. A pelvic computed tomography (CT) revealed an invagination of fat in the uterine wall accompanied by an abscess in the rectouterine pouch. Laparoscopic exploration revealed an incarcerated cecal appendix within the myometrium(More)
