AIM A series of rare complicated duodenal diverticula were reported with emphasis on causes for misdiagnosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS Patients with a discharge diagnosis of complicated duodenal diverticulum were retrospectively obtained. Computed tomographic (CT) reports and findings were reviewed. RESULTS Complications consisted of diverticulitis (n=2),(More)
A need exists to noninvasively assess renal interstitial fibrosis, a common process to all kidney diseases and predictive of renal prognosis. In this translational study, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) T1 mapping and a new segmented Diffusion-Weighted Imaging (DWI) technique, for Apparent Diffusion Coefficient (ADC), were first compared to renal fibrosis(More)
PURPOSE To assess the influence of perfusion on apparent coefficient diffusion (ADC) maps, the contribution of b-value images, and the number of b-values needed in prostate cancer detection by diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI). MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients scheduled for prostatectomy were scanned by 3T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with DWI based on(More)
In 2014, Geneva University Hospital has opened the first certified prostate cancer Center of western Switzerland. It incorporates 29 entities implicated in the diagnosis and treatment of this disease, thereby assuring that all available ressources are made available to patients, regardless of the division to which they were initially referred. The main(More)
We report a rare case of an isolated and unsuspected thrombosis in the right internal iliac vein. The presentation was atypical with regard to the clinical manifestations and the thrombus location. The patient was admitted for an acute abdominal pain in the right iliac fossa. The thrombosis was suspected on the basis of a portal-phase contrast-enhanced(More)
INTRODUCTION The study aimed to evaluate 3 different modalities of transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided prostate biopsies (PBs; 2D-, 3D- and targeted 3D-TRUS with fusion to MRI - T3D). Primary end point was the detection rate of prostate cancer (PC). Secondary end point was the detection rate of insignificant PC according to the Epstein criteria. PATIENTS(More)
CT delivers a large dose of radiation, especially in abdominal imaging. Recently, a low-dose abdominal CT protocol (low-dose CT) has been set-up in our institution. "Low-dose CT" is almost equivalent to a single standard abdominal radiograph in term of dose of radiation (about one sixth of those delivered by a standard CT). "Low-dose CT" is now used(More)
Urothelial carcinomas are the fourth most common tumors in men. Upper tract urinary carcinomas (UTUCs) are uncommon and represent only 5-10% of urothelial carcinomas.(1) Metastatic testicular cancers are rare and primary tumor sources are the prostate, lung, and gastrointestinal tract. We report the first case of testicular metastasis 2 years after initial(More)
PURPOSE To compare readout-segmented echo-planar imaging (EPI) (RESOLVE) to single-shot EPI (ss-EPI) diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) for the assessment of renal interstitial fibrosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS A phantom, eight healthy volunteers (under 30 years to avoid age-fibrosis related) and 27 chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients (scheduled for kidney(More)
