PURPOSE To determine the usefulness of five magnetic resonance (MR) signs of repeat tears of the postoperative meniscus. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fat-saturated proton-density-weighted and T2-weighted MR images in 20 patients who had undergone at least two knee surgeries were reviewed. Second-look arthroscopic confirmation of meniscal status was available in(More)
Automated breast ultrasound (ABUS)was performed in 3418 asymptomatic women with mammographically dense breasts. The addition of ABUS to mammography in women with greater than 50% breast density resulted in the detection of 12.3 per 1,000 breast cancers, compared to 4.6 per 1,000 by mammography alone. The mean tumor size was 14.3 mm and overall attributable(More)
Descending necrotizing mediastinitis (DNM) is a relatively rare condition caused by downward spread of neck infections into the mediastinum. This infection previously had a much worse prognosis. In recent years, prompt computer topography (CT) diagnosis has been recommended. CT scan provides the earliest means of detecting DNM for optimal management and(More)
PURPOSE To demonstrate the signal characteristics of subcutaneous rheumatoid nodules in correlation to their histopathologic features. METHOD The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of biopsy proven subcutaneous rheumatoid nodules are described in five patients with rheumatoid arthritis established by classic criteria. RESULTS Two morphologic(More)
Tophaceous gout causing cord compression with a normal serum urate level and with no current symptoms of polyradiculopathy is a rare occurrence. We describe the computed tomographic (CT) findings of large, well-defined marginal and juxtamarginal erosions containing urate deposits which resulted in extradural cord compression in the cervical spine of a(More)
The purpose of this study was to optimize detection of the normal appendix in the clinical exclusion of acute nonperforated appendicitis using an improved and rapid method of bowel opacification in conjunction with the CT examination. A prospective evaluation of 100 consecutive patients, ranging from 13 to 50 years in age, was performed over a 4-month(More)
A fat-fluid level on CT is reported for biopsy proven undifferentiated adenocarcinoma of the ovary. This uncommon radiographic finding has been described in association with germ cell tumors of the ovary, such as cystic teratomas and immature teratomas, but not in other ovarian histologies. The finding of a fat-fluid level on CT is, therefore, suggestive(More)
