Foreign body aspiration is common in children, especially those under 3 years of age. Chest radiography and CT are the main imaging modalities for the evaluation of these children. Management of children with suspected foreign body aspiration (SFBA) mainly depends on radiological findings. To investigate the potential use of low-dose multidetector CT (MDCT)(More)
The present study aimed to evaluate the late-term changes in radial artery luminal diameter (RAD) and vasodilatation response following transradial catheterization (TRC). TRC-inducing trauma to radial artery intima may trigger chronic phase vascular changes and lead to anatomical and functional impairment. There is controversial data whether the impairment(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Radiologic identification of the location of the CSF leakage is important for proper surgical planning and increases the chance of dural repair. This article describes our experience in analyzing clinically suspected cranial CSF fistulas by using MR imaging combined with the intrathecal administration of a gadolinium-based contrast(More)
Localized fibrous tumor of the pleura is a rare primary pleural neoplasm. The tumors are usually discovered incidentally on routine chest radiography. A change in the lesion's position with respiration and/or posture of the patient indicates a pedunculated pleural lesion. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging reveal the relation of the lesions(More)
PURPOSE The goal of this study was to compare the sensitivity of MRI and scintigraphy for detecting metastatic bone disease involving the axial skeleton. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 59 patients (58 women and 1 man, age range 28-83 years, mean age 53.0 years) with histopathologically proven breast cancer during a 15-month period (between April 2003 and(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to describe the technique and to evaluate the results of whole-body magnetic resonance imaging in an asymptomatic population. MATERIAL/METHODS Between March 2009 and December 2011, 118 consecutive subjects undergoing thorough medical check-up were prospectively included in the study. MRI was performed with a 205-cm(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the case of a woman who had combined aplasia of sphenoid, frontal, and maxillary sinuses accompanied by ethmoid sinus hypoplasia. METHODS AND RESULTS A 47-year-old woman presented with complaints of headache, nasal obstruction, and postnasal drainage. She had no previous history of either facial trauma or systemic diseases affecting(More)
Leiomyosarcoma of the vascular origin is a rare malignant tumor. It originates from the smooth muscle cells of the media with intra- or extraluminal growth, and in most cases it arises in the inferior vena cava. The diagnosis is often delayed because the clinical symptoms of this disease are often nonspecific. Accurate diagnosis of inferior vena cava(More)
