OBJECTIVE Assess mammographic and echographic modifications in mild cases of breast cancer (suitable for conservative surgery) after intraoperatory radio treatment (IORT) as opposed to conventional post-operative radiotherapy (RT). MATERIALS AND METHODS We report data from 45 patients in each group (IORT and RT). All patients were examined using the same(More)
PURPOSE To confirm the diagnostic accuracy of percutaneous core breast biopsy with Mammotome and stereotactic equipment in upright seated patients, and to compare results from this method with those obtained using the dedicated unit with prone table. MATERIALS AND METHODS We analysed 72 microbioptic samples from 69 upright seated patients. These samples(More)
Choroidal metastasis from primaries other than breast or lung cancer is a rare event. There is no documented case in the literature of choroidal metastases in patients with hypopharynx carcinoma. Early treatment with radiation therapy provides effective palliation by preserving visual function and preventing the need for enucleation. Chemotherapy alone does(More)
Eighty patients complaining of shoulder pain were examined with MRI from January, 1993, through December, 1994. Thirty of them were submitted to surgery, with an exhaustive inspection of shoulder structures and the treatment of abnormal findings. In this subgroup of surgical patients, MRI had depicted 16 complete tears of the rotator cuff, 4 partial tears,(More)
BACKGROUND This study was designed to assess whether cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) in Duchenne muscular dystrophy carriers (DMDc) may index any cell milieu elements of LV dysfunction and whether this cardiac phenotype may be related to genotype. The null hypothesis was that myocardial fibrosis, assessed by late gadolinium enhancement(More)
AIM To define the role of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) by analyzing a particular group of patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and normal coronary angiogram. METHODS From January 2009 to December 2015, we examined 220 patients with clinical suspicion of ACS, Troponin elevation [the threshold used to define a positive Troponin T test(More)
PURPOSE Amyloid shoulder arthropathy is a frequent finding in long-term hemodialysis patients. Assessing the symptoms is fundamental in the approach to these patients but their long life expectancy means that the correct imaging quantification of scapulohumeral joint impairment is just as important. We investigated the role of MRI in amyloid shoulder(More)
