Cranial Remain from Tunisia Provides New Clues for the Origin and Evolution of Sirenia (Mammalia, Afrotheria) in Africa
TLDR
X-ray microtomography is used to investigate a newly discovered sirenian petrosal from the Eocene of Tunisia, which represents the oldest occurrence of sirenians in Africa and supports their African origin. Expand
Homoplasy in the ear region of Tethytheria and the systematic position of Embrithopoda (Mammalia, Afrotheria)
TLDR
It is proposed that the great amount of morphological convergences in the ear region of Embrithopoda and Proboscidea, possibly due to convergent evolution of capabilities toward infrasonic hearing, underlines the importance of phylogenetically useful ear region characters. Expand
Petrosal and Bony Labyrinth Morphology Supports Paraphyly of Elephantulus Within Macroscelididae (Mammalia, Afrotheria)
TLDR
A cladistic analysis on ear traits is performed and it is found that despite some convergences (e.g., concerning the bony arterial canals in Macroscelides and Rhynchocyon) the middle and inner ear morphology furnishes significant support for the ‘Panelephantulus’ clade. Expand
Characterization of small solid renal lesions: can benign and malignant tumors be differentiated with CT?
TLDR
In the evaluation of enhancing small solid renal lesions without fat, no CT criteria were of substantial help in differentiating malignant from benign lesions. Expand
Imaging of ischemic colitis.
TLDR
The epidemiology, physiology, and pathology of this underdiagnosed condition is described; the clinical patterns of this disease are reviewed; the ultrasound (US) and CT findings, pitfalls, and differential diagnoses of ischemic colitis are described; and the value and limitations of US and CT at the different diagnostic stages are discussed. Expand
[MR Imaging of primary ovarian tumors with pathologic correlation].
TLDR
This pictorial essay illustrates the MR imaging features of the main ovarian tumors with pathologic correlation that are helpful to suggest a specific diagnosis or narrow the differential diagnosis, in order to optimize the surgical approach. Expand
Intraspecific Variation of Endocranial Structures in Extant Equus: A Prelude to Endocranial Studies in Fossil Equoids
TLDR
Using descriptive, biometric, and morphometric analyses, an unsuspected range of intraspecific variation for 40 endocranial characters is revealed and this results prompt cautious consideration of these characters, as well as an index for the determination of hearing abilities or encephalization quotients. Expand
[Imaging features of granulosa cell tumors of the ovary: about three cases].
TLDR
From a review of the clinical and MR imaging features of three cases of granulosa cell tumor of the adult and a Review of the literature, a few imaging features that may suggest the correct diagnosis are described. Expand
Pearls and pitfalls in breast MRI.
TLDR
The most common diagnostic errors in interpreting MRI of the breast are discussed in this review and experience-based advice is provided to avoid similar mistakes. Expand
Characterization of small solid renal lesions: can benign and malignant tumors be differentiated with CT?
TLDR
Studies have shown that some imaging features and the degree of enhancement on CT images are helpful in differentiating renal cortical tumor subtypes, despite overlap, and that some CT findings can be used to characterize benign tumors. Expand
