Orbital blow-out fractures were experimentally created in eight human cadavers. Each orbit underwent conventional radiographic studies, complex motion tomography, and computed tomographic examinations. A comparison of the three modalities was made. Anatomical correlation was obtained by dissecting the orbits. The significance of medial-wall fractures and(More)
Four unusual pelvic masses, studied by CT and gray scale ultrasonography, demonstrate the comparative values of these modalities for this area of the body. In each instance a significant contribution to the diagnosis was made by one or both techniques. The ultrasound study provides a somewhat better differentiation of solid from cystic lesions, but the CT(More)
Temporomandibular joint dysfunction is a common c linical problem that has been reported to affect 4%-28% of adu lts [1, 2). The characteristic signs and symptoms are joint pain, tenderness, joint noises, and limitation of opening [3 , 4). Temporomandibular joint arthrography has shown that many of these patients have intraarticular abnurmalities involving(More)
The presence of a bifid posterior arch of the atlas has been regarded as a contraindication to the wiring of C1-2 for atlantoaxial arthrodesis. Three cases with C1 posterior spondyloschisis are presented with successful atlantoaxial arthrodesis using laterally placed wires to avoid the midline defect of the atlas. An experimental study of the efficacy of(More)
Thirty cases of orbital floor blow-out fractures proven by tomography were retrospectively reviewed to determine the accuracy of the plain films. Using the maximum diameter from the tomograms, the area and volume of the fractures were calculated and correlated with the presence of diplopia and enophthalmos at the time of presentation and at subsequent(More)
In three patients with histologically confirmed, acute demyelinating disease (multiple sclerosis), serial cranial computed tomography revealed unusual findings. Computed tomography showed contrast-enhancing lesions with mass effect, which suggested brain tumors and the need for surgical biopsy. Steroids were administered to each patients; in two, the large(More)
