Recent advances in genetics and pathology have improved our understanding of diagnosis and staging of uterine sarcomas. The major types of uterine sarcomas include leiomyosarcoma, low-grade endometrial stromal sarcoma, undifferentiated endometrial sarcoma, adenosarcoma and carcinosarcoma. The distinctive biological behavior and poor overall survival of… (More)
The arteries of the upper extremities are increasingly utilized to gain access for angiography, percutaneous coronary interventions, endovascular therapy, and continuous hemodynamic monitoring. Hence, complications after upper-extremity arterial interventions are increasing in incidence. Similarly, the incidence of upper-extremity deep venous thrombosis is… (More)
Although amebic liver abscess is a common disease, it is a rare cause of venous thrombosis. Computed tomography (CT) scan is an ideal tool for diagnosing the various complications associated with liver abscess. We describe a case of amebic liver abscess in a patient who developed a rare vascular complication of hepatic vein and inferior vena cava thrombosis.
Small bowel obstruction is a common condition encountered by the radiologist in the emergency department. Though intestinal adhesions and obstructed hernias are the most common causes of acute small bowel obstruction, a variety of uncommon and rare conditions can cause acute and subacute bowel obstruction. Imaging plays a key role in the workup of bowel… (More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the role of multidetector CT angiography in the diagnosis and preoperative assessment of pulmonary sequestration with angiographic or surgical correlation. METHODS Eight patients (5 males, 3 females) in the age range of 2 days to 35 years suspected of having pulmonary sequestration on the basis of clinical history and chest radiographs… (More)
Tuberculosis of the thyroid gland is very rare, with an acute abscess formation being the least common form of presentation. We report the sono-graphic features of two cases of tuberculous thyroid abscess that were confirmed via ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy.
Adrenal collision tumors (ACTs) refer to coexistence of two adjacent, but histologically distinct neoplasms involving the adrenal gland without histologic admixture at interface. ACTs include adenoma with myelolipoma, adenoma with metastases, hemangioma with adenoma, and adrenocortical carcinoma with myelolipoma. In addition, hemorrhage into a pre-existing… (More)
There is an increasing incidence of both intra- and extra-thoracic manifestations of tuberculosis, in part due to the AIDS epidemic. Isolated tubercular involvement of the solid abdominal viscera is relatively unusual. Cross-sectional imaging with ultrasound, multidetector computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) plays an important… (More)
Minimally invasive gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and gynecological procedures are widely used in the clinical practice for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Complications both minor and major are not uncommon with these procedures. Imaging plays an important role in the detection and optimal management of these complications. Familiarity with the… (More)
Technological advances in the last couple of decades have led to a tremendous improvement in the safety and efficacy of embolization making it the therapeutic intervention of choice in angiogram positive lower gastrointestinal bleeding. Vasopressin has thus been forgotten and it is hardly ever used by the current generation of interventionists. However,… (More)
