OBJECTIVE Computed tomography (CT) is traditionally used for evaluation and staging of gallbladder carcinoma (GC). However, in the subgroup of patients with obstructive jaundice, magnetic resonance cholangiography (MRC) is generally required to assess the level of biliary obstruction. The present study was undertaken to evaluate the diagnostic potential of(More)
PURPOSE To compare the findings related to esophageal/gastric varices and congestive gastropathy on intravenous computed tomography (CT) portography (CTP) and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy (UGIE) in children with extrahepatic portal venous obstruction (EHO) presented with hematemesis. METHODS/MATERIALS Fifty pediatric patients (age < 15 years) with EHO(More)
We report a patient with Gastroduodenal artery (GDA) pseudoaneurysm of tuberculous aetiology, who presented with massive hematemesis and who was successfully managed with transarterial steel coil embolization. Pseudoaneurysms are a rare but potentially fatal complication of tuberculosis and hence early recognition and management of this complication is(More)
Our objective was to assess the ability of dual-phase helical CT (DHCT) to predict resectability of carcinoma of gallbladder (CaGB). Thirty-two consecutive patients suspected of having CaGB on clinical examination and sonography presented to our centre over 10-month period. All these 32 patients underwent DHCT. Fifteen patients were considered inoperable(More)
The authors describe the use of dual-phase intravenous CT angiography of the pelvis in two female patients, who presented with ongoing excessive vaginal bleeding, to demonstrate large adnexal and uterine arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). Power Doppler was used as the initial modality to diagnose the AVMs. CT angiography, along with 3-D rendering in the(More)
Abdominal tuberculosis continues to be endemic in the developing world and has shown a resurgence in the West. Computed tomography (CT) evaluation is singularly informative as it demonstrates involvement of the bowel, peritoneum, lymph nodes, and solid organs in a single examination. A spectrum of CT findings in an immunocompetent population is presented,(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the splenoportal (SP) axis and patency of portal systemic shunts in extrahepatic portal venous obstruction (EHO) by intravenous CT portography (CTP). Fifty-five patients of preshunt EHO, and 21 patients of postshunt (surgical portal systemic shunts) EHO, were subjected to intravenous CTP on a subsecond helical CT(More)
The relative noninvasive nature, easy accessibility, convenience and accuracy of helical CT in the rapid evaluation of not only the aorta and its branches, but the entire thorax/abdomen, makes it the best suited imaging modality for use in evaluation of aortic aneurysms and dissection. Excellent vascular opacification, the advantage of reconstructing(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the profile and outcome of therapy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in India. METHODS Data analysis of HCC patients enrolled in liver clinic between 1990 and 2005. RESULTS We registered 324 HCC patients [males 284 (88%), mean age 52.4 +/- 13.1 years]. The etiology of HCC was: hepatitis B virus 165 (51%), hepatitis C virus 38 (12%),(More)
