Traumatized teeth present a clinical challenge with regard to their diagnosis, treatment plan, and prognosis. Recent developments in imaging systems have enabled clinicians to visualize structural changes effectively. Computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and cone beam computed tomography are among the most commonly used systems for dental and… (More)
Peripheral nerve entrapment occurs at specific anatomic locations. Familiarity with the anatomy and the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of nerve entrapment syndromes is important for accurate diagnosis and early treatment of entrapment neuropathies. The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the normal anatomy of peripheral nerves in the upper and… (More)
The rotator interval and the long head of the biceps brachii tendon are anatomically closely associated structures believed to confer stability to the shoulder joint. Abnormalities of the rotator interval may be acquired or congenital and are associated with instability of the long head of the biceps brachii tendon. Clinical and arthroscopic diagnoses of… (More)
OBJECTIVE The purposes of this study were (1) to review the sonographic in vitro and in vivo appearances of mesh for surgical repair of abdominal wall hernias, (2) to describe sonographic techniques and discuss the limitations of sonography in evaluation of mesh hernia repair, and (3) to illustrate common complications after mesh repair shown with… (More)
The osseous pelvis is a well-recognized site of origin of numerous primary and secondary musculoskeletal tumors. The radiologic evaluation of a pelvic lesion often begins with the plain film and proceeds to computed tomography (CT), or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and possibly biopsy. Each of these modalities, with inherent advantages and disadvantages,… (More)
We report a sonographic technique of skin marking of the projection of nonpalpable subcutaneous foreign bodies and masses using a paperclip. Localization and marking of the overlying skin assists in preoperative planning and further management.
An arterioarticular fistula is an unusual complication of knee arthrocentesis. We describe the sonographic findings immediately following a failed clinical attempt at knee arthrocentesis that resulted in an arterioarticular fistula. Spectral Doppler analysis confirmed the jet of blood into the hemarthrosis. Knowledge of anatomy and application of standard… (More)
