PURPOSE To retrospectively evaluate the midterm outcome of patients treated for primary renal cell carcinomas arising in kidney transplants with minimally invasive techniques. MATERIALS AND METHODS The institutional review board of each participating institution approved this retrospective study and waived informed consent. This study was HIPAA compliant.(More)
The subcommittee on scrotal imaging, appointed by the board of the European Society of Urogenital Radiology (ESUR), have produced guidelines on imaging and follow-up in testicular microlithiasis (TML). The authors and a superintendent university librarian independently performed a computer-assisted literature search of medical databases: MEDLINE and EMBASE.(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare image quality on computed tomographic (CT) images acquired with filtered back-projection (FBP), adaptive statistical iterative reconstruction (ASIR) and model-based iterative reconstruction (MBIR) techniques in CT kidney/ureter/bladder (KUB) examination. METHODS Eighteen patients underwent standard protocol CT KUB at our institution.(More)
Purpose: Thrombin injection is becoming well established for the percutaneous management of iatrogenic pseudoaneurysms. All the published series to date use bovine thrombin, and there have been reports of adverse immunologic effects following its use. Our study aimed to assess the efficacy of human thrombin injection for pseudoaneurysm occlusion. Methods:(More)
To determine the threshold characteristics of optokinetic nystagmus (OKN), contrast thresholds for involuntary OKN were measured for gratings of different spatial frequency to yield an OKN-contrast sensitivity function (OKN-CSF). The OKN-CSF resembled an inverted U-shaped function with temporal-to-nasal and nasal-to-temporal movement yielding similar(More)
Studies have shown that in order for sound to affect the vestibular end organs in the inner ear, very high intensities are required. Furthermore, in patients with noise induced hearing loss, vestibular signs, if present, are subclinical. In order to study possible auditory-vestibular interactions in a more controlled fashion, using physiological sound(More)
OBJECTIVES Digital tomosynthesis is a new digital technique based on conventional X-ray tomography. It acquires multiple low-dose projections during a single sweep of the X-ray tube, which are reassembled to provide high-resolution slices at different depths. Suggested uses include visualisation of pulmonary nodules, mammography, angiography, dental imaging(More)
The ‘Lyre’ sign describes the characteristic splaying of the carotid artery bifurcation due to a carotid body tumour (paraganglioma) on conventional carotid angiography. In this pictorial review, we describe and illustrate two cases demonstrating the equivalent Lyre sign on multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT) and ultrasound resulting from carotid body(More)
Abnormalities in the spleen are less common than in most other abdominal organs. However, they will be regularly encountered by ultrasound practitioners, who carefully evaluate the spleen in their abdominal ultrasound studies. Conventional grey scale and Doppler ultrasound are frequently unable to characterise focal splenic abnormalities; even when clinical(More)
