The main challenge to the radiologist is to differentiate benign from malignant adnexal masses. Both US and MRI perform well for prediction of benignity. There is less specificity for diagnosis of malignancy but features, such as papillary projections, thickened septations, and internal vascularity within nodules, aid in this differentiation. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the performance of sonography in evaluating small indeterminate liver lesions detected on computed tomography in patients with cancer. METHODS Radiology database review from January 1, 1998, to August 4, 2000, identified 76 patients with 124 indeterminate hepatic lesions smaller than 1.5 cm on computed tomography who had abdominal(More)
Ovarian cancer is the second most common pelvic tumor and the leading cause of death from a gynecologic malignancy. MRI plays a strategic role in patient care for initial evaluation and treatment planning in patients with ovarian cancer. This article reviews the pathologic classification and characteristic findings on MRI of ovarian malignancies, patterns(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the potential role of preoperative CT in patients with recurrent ovarian cancer who undergo secondary cytoreductive surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS Preoperative CT examinations of 36 consecutive patients (age range, 30-75 years; mean age, 55 years) were reviewed retrospectively. Patients had recurrent(More)
PURPOSE To describe the appearance and prevalence of subcutaneous nodules in the anterior abdominal wall seen at CT in cancer patients receiving subcutaneous injections of low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH). METHODS CT examinations were reviewed in 426 patients receiving subcutaneous abdominal wall injections of LMWH for the presence of nodules. Nodules(More)
Approximately 300 cases of primary meningeal melanoma have been reported in the literature;(1) eight of these cases had an associated pineal melanoma without additional parenchymal lesions.(2) We present another such case and demonstrate the advantage of magnetic resonance imaging over computed tomography in the early detection of meningeal involvement.
