MATERIALS AND METHODS From July 2005 to March 2008, a total of 2002 persons underwent LDCT and were included in the study. We retrospectively reviewed the chest CT images(More)
OBJECTIVE We prospectively evaluated transabdominal and transvaginal sonographic findings of patients with pelvic congestion syndrome and compared them with those of healthy volunteers. SUBJECTS AND METHODS. We examined 32 patients with pelvic congestion syndrome and 35 control subjects. Using transabdominal sonography, we evaluated the ovarian veins for(More)
Bile duct leakage from the main biliary tree is not uncommon after hepatic surgery. In this case, successful percutaneous treatment was performed for bile leakage from an isolated bile duct after left hemihepatectomy in a 48-year-old woman who underwent surgery for biliary cystadenocarcinoma and developed a biloma at the left subphrenic space. Diagnostic(More)

We report two cases of hepatic metastases from choriocarcinoma in women of childbearing age in whom imaging studies performed at presentation revealed the presence of liver masses, and who had clinically progressive anemia or intraabdominal hemorrhage. CT demonstrated heterogeneously enhanced liver masses. Characteristic angiographic findings included(More)
Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) is an acute viral disease characterized by fever, hemorrhage and renal failure. Among the various hemorrhagic complications of HFRS, spontaneous rupture of the kidney and perirenal hematoma are very rare findings.

PURPOSE To test the feasibility of performing transcervical fallopian tube occlusion in a rabbit model with use of unipolar radiofrequency (RF) electrocoagulation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Under fluoroscopic guidance, transvaginal catheterization of the right or left fallopian tube was first performed with use of a coaxial technique in 20 rabbits. With a(More)
