OBJECTIVE To examine the effectiveness of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values and to compare the reliability of different b-values in detecting and identifying significant liver fibrosis. SUBJECTS AND METHODS There were 44 patients with chronic viral hepatitis (CVH) in the study group and 30 healthy participants in the control group.(More)
INTRODUCTION Paragangliomas are mostly localized in the adrenal medulla and they are usually pheochromocytomas, derived from the neural crest, but otherwise mesenteric paragangliomas are extremely rare tumors. CASE PRESENTATION In this article we represent a 59-year-old female with an abdominal mass and pain due to mesenteric paraganglioma. CONCLUSIONS(More)
PURPOSE To determine which diffusion-weighted MR technique (i.e., b-100, b-600, b-1000 s/mm(2)) is most useful in depicting liver hemangiomas. We also aimed to assess the effect of lesion size on apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values. MATERIALS AND METHODS Diffusion-weighed MR (DWMR) was performed for 61 hemangiomas in 32 patients. DWMR images were(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE) is a frequent disease with difficult diagnosis and high mortality. Misdiagnosis occurs in 2/3 patients and mortality rates reach up to 30%. The aim of our study was to investigate the role of adiponectin used in emergency service in diagnosis of PTE. MATERIALS AND METHODS 95 patients with suspected PTE(More)
