Posterior reversible leukoencephalopathy syndrome (PRES) clinically presents with seizures, severe headaches, and mental and visual changes. Our goal was to describe the clinical features, triggering factors, neuro-imaging findings, and electroencephalogram (EEG) findings in a pediatric cohort with renal disease. We retrospectively analyzed the records of(More)
A 66-year-old female developed progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) 17 months after treatment with bendamustine and rituximab chemoimmunotherapy. During her evaluation for PML, she was found to have a CD4 count of 176 cells/μL (reference range 492-1740). The patient demonstrated spontaneous recovery of symptoms that occurred in parallel with(More)
To develop a novel automated method for segmentation of the injured spleen using morphological properties following abdominal trauma. Average attenuation of a normal spleen in computed tomography (CT) does not vary significantly between subjects. However, in the case of solid organ injury, the shape and attenuation of the spleen on CT may vary depending on(More)
The automatic determination of urgent operational needs to accelerate the patient management for trauma patients brought to emergency services is important. In this study, a method to help the segmentation of liver, which is the most damaged organ due to its volume and location as a result of the abdominal trauma, is proposed. An abdominal trauma usually(More)
OBJECTIVES Liver abscesses are approximately 50 % of all visceral abscesses, and trauma presents as a rare cause of the liver abscess. Otherwise, hepatic abscess is an uncommon complication of gunshot wound (GSW) to the liver among all trauma cases. Here we reviewed their experience in detail. METHOD From January 1, 2004 to September 30, 2013, there were(More)
Bowing fractures are incomplete fractures of tubular long bones, often observed in pediatric patients, where plain radiographic film is the non-invasive imaging modality of choice in routine radiological workflow. Due to weak association between bent bone and distinct cortex disruption, bowing fractures may not be diagnosed properly while reading plain(More)
AIM To evaluate the efficacy of the Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Perfusion (CMRP) method in detection of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) by comparing CMRP findings with the results of Coronary Computed Tomography Angiography (CCTA) or Catheter Coronary Angiography (CCA). METHODS Thirty one patients in whom CMRP was performed along with CCTA or CCA within a(More)
Background. Acquired AVF in pediatrics are commonly caused by iatrogenic means, including arterial or venous punctures. These fistulae can cause great hemodynamic stress on the heart as soon as they are created. Case. A six-month-old 25-week gestation infant was referred for respiratory distress. Initial exam revealed tachypnea, tachycardia, and(More)
Timely and accurate diagnosis of intraabdominal organ injuries due to trauma is critical. Computer Assisted Detection (CAD) systems are rapidly developing techniques to segment the organs or to detect the pathologies in medical applications; either automatically or semi-automatically. In this work, our aim is to propose and validate a CAD system which(More)
