PURPOSE To evaluate the ability of fluoroscopic images obtained during air enemas to depict or exclude lead points of intussusceptions and other abnormalities that require surgical treatment in the absence of intussusception. MATERIALS AND METHODS The clinical, radiologic, surgical, and pathologic findings were reviewed in 14 patients with lead points or(More)
PURPOSE To compare the effectiveness of radiologically guided transrectal drainage (TRD) of deep pelvic abscesses (DPAs) in children with that of percutaneous and surgical techniques. MATERIALS AND METHODS Treatment results in 57 children with DPAs were retrospectively evaluated. The following procedures were performed: TRD alone (n = 21), TRD and(More)
Developed by Baron-Cohen et al. (1997, 2001), the Reading the Mind in the Eyes Test requires individuals to determine mental states from photos of pairs of eyes. Used in over 250 studies, it has been conceptualized as an advanced theory of mind test that is relatively free of general cognitive abilities. Given the sensitivity of the instrument, many studies(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate selective embolization for management of posttraumatic priapism in preadolescent boys and color Doppler sonography for diagnosis of the causative lesion and for planning embolization. MATERIALS AND METHODS Five preadolescent boys with posttraumatic priapism underwent selective angiography and embolization. Color Doppler sonography was(More)
Evaluation of prophylactic treatment of haemophilia requires sensitive methods. To design and test a new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scale for haemophilic arthropathy, two scales of a combined MRI scoring scheme were merged into a single scale which includes soft tissue and osteochondral subscores. Sixty-one joint MRI's of 46 patients with haemophilia(More)
e20664 Background: Docetaxel, doxorubicin hydrochloride, and cyclophosphamide (TAC) is a commonly used adjuvant chemotherapy (C) regimen in patients (pts) with high risk breast cancer (BC). Pegfilgrastim (PF) is a long acting G-CSF known to decrease the risk of FN. It is typically given the day after C. Illinois CancerCare (ILCC) is a large oncology(More)
Effective treatment of haemophilic arthropathy requires a detailed evaluation of joint integrity. Methodological assessment of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scores are needed to assure reproducibility of measurements when comparing results of clinical trials conducted in different centres. We compared the reliability of two MRI scoring systems for(More)
We tested the reliability and construct validity of the Compatible magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scale for the evaluation of haemophilic knees and ankles and compared the diagnostic performance of MRI and plain film radiographs. Sagittal and coronal gradient-echo 1.5-T MR images of knees (n=22) and ankles (n=23) were obtained from boys (age range 4-16(More)
The international MRI expert subgroup of the International Prophylaxis Study Group (IPSG) has developed a consensus for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scales for assessment of haemophilic arthropathy. A MRI scoring scheme including a 10 step progressive scale and a 20 step additive scale with identical definitions of mutual steps is presented. Using the(More)
