Usual and unusual imaging findings of SCN as well as potential SCN mimickers are presented. The diagnostic key of SCN is to look for a cluster of microcysts (honeycomb pattern), which may not be always found in(More)

Computed tomography colonography (CTC) was performed in 5 patients with pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis (PCI). The virtual colonoscopy view of CTC as well as total colonoscopy (TCS) findings showed polypoid lesions in the colon, and multiplanar reconstruction images of the colon revealed in the polypoid lesions of the colon. We confirmed the diagnosis of(More)

Intraductal oncocytic papillary neoplasm (IOPN) of the pancreas is a rare pancreatic tumor. To date, there have been three case reports of IOPN which showed strong positivity on 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET), raising the possibility of distinguishing IOPNs from other intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) using(More)
