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)
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)
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the accuracy of gray scale and Doppler US findings in the detection of axillary metastases in breast cancer patients with no palpable lymph nodes. One-hundred and ninety-eight lymph nodes detected in 83 women were evaluated. The size and longitudinal/transverse axis ratios of each node were documented. Absence of(More)
BACKGROUND 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. OBJECTIVE To investigate the potential use of low-dose(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)
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)
We report two cases of lower extremity venous pathology mimicking deep vein thrombosis (DVT). The first case was a 20-year-old male with swelling in the left leg. Colour Doppler ultrasound (CDUS) demonstrated a continuous flow pattern, and computed tomography (CT) revealed compression of the dilated left common iliac vein by the right common iliac artery(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)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder is a condition of unknown aetiology that results in the development of restricted active and passive glenohumeral motion. It has been reported that magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is useful in diagnosing adhesive capsulitis. We carried out this study to assess how pain and/or resistance during(More)
