PURPOSE To determine angiographically the origins and variations of renal arteries. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 855 consecutive patients (163 females, 692 males; mean age, 61 years) living in the Cukurova region of Turkey, who underwent either aortofemoropopliteal (AFP) angiography for the investigation of peripheral arterial disease, or(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to determine the types, prevalence rates, and clinical implications of portal vein (PV) variations using routine abdominal multidetector computed tomography (MDCT). MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 1384 retrospectively evaluated patients (721 males, 663 females) that had undergone routine abdominal MDCT. Portal(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to present the imaging characteristics of patients with hepatobiliary fascioliasis and describe a new imaging finding. MATERIALS AND METHODS Imaging and clinical findings of five patients diagnosed with hepatobiliary fascioliasis were retrospectively evaluated. All patients were examined by abdominal ultrasonography (US)(More)
PURPOSE To determine the diagnostic accuracy values of sonography in the detection of renal stones using noncontrast CT as the gold standard. In addition, we correlated the accuracy of sonography with stone size, the kidney affected (right versus left), and body mass index (BMI). METHODS Fifty patients underwent 2 separate sonographic examinations(More)
The aim of this study was to identify the predictors of malignancy and to demonstrate the uncommon radiological features of gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GIST) using CT. 30 patients participated in this retrospective study. CT findings were evaluated by two radiologists, and categorical variables were compared using chi(2) or Fisher's exact tests. These(More)
Iliac vein compression syndrome (IVCS), also known as May-Thurner syndrome, is the result of compression of the left common iliac vein between the right common iliac artery and overlying vertebrae. The most common clinical presentation is left lower extremity deep vein thrombosis. Rarely, a patient with IVCS can present with obstruction of venous outflow,(More)
PURPOSE To explore the optimal b value in diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) for differentiation of benign and malignant abdominal lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 108 consecutive patients (age 60 ± 12.5 years) with 127 pathologically confirmed diagnoses of abdominal lesions were included. Single-shot echoplanar imaging (SH-EPI) DWI (1.5T) with(More)
OBJECTIVE The aims of this study were to present the prevalence, imaging and clinical findings, and possible causes of portal venous system aneurysms. MATERIALS AND METHODS From 1998 to 2006, a total of 38 portal venous system aneurysms identified in 25 patients were retrospectively reviewed. The data of seven patients diagnosed using color Doppler(More)
Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an inherited multisystem disorder; it may involve kidney, brain, skin, lungs, and liver. We report a 37-year-old female TSC patient presenting with skin lesions (angiofibromas, molluscum pendulum). Radiologic examination revealed additional brain and renal lesions consisting of tumors, cysts, and angiomyolipomas.(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between renal resistive index and inflammation in untreated hypertensive patients. Sixty-one hypertensive patients (male/female: 38/23, aged 45.8 +/- 8.3 years, and mean hypertension duration 28.2 +/- 35.6 months) and 40 (male/female: 23/17, aged 42.7 +/- 8.5 years) healthy control subjects were(More)
