BACKGROUND To determine the relationship between renal cell carcinoma subtypes and the associated mortality and biochemical parameters. An additional aim was to analyze multiphasic multidetector computed tomography findings. METHODS This study is a hospital-based retrospective investigation, using 211 patients with a diagnosis of renal cell carcinoma upon(More)
Amyand's hernia, named for the first person to describe an inguinal hernia containing the vermiform appendix, is an uncommon variant of an inguinal hernia. Amyand's hernia is an extremely rare condition and is often misdiagnosed. Traditionally, these hernias have been diagnosed at surgery but are increasingly diagnosed by abdominal computed tomography (CT)(More)
To our knowledge, bilateral supernumerary kidney is a very rare renal abnormality and there are five cases presented in the literature. It is difficult to diagnose supernumerary kidney and clinicians have not detected most cases preoperatively. Laboratory and imaging studies were acquired and carefully examined. The normal laboratory tests were found.(More)
INTRODUCTION We evaluate the diagnostic performance of strain elastography to differentiate renal cell carcinoma (RCC) from angiomyolipoma (AML). METHODS Strain elastography was performed in 65 patients (mean age 55.5 years; range: 32-81) who had renal lesions (24 AMLs and 41 RCCs) prospectively. Lesions were classified according to lesion size and(More)

BACKGROUND Among patients with increased bronchial artery diameter there is a significant association between hemoptysis and bronchiectasis score. The higher score of bronchiectasis, the higher risk of hemoptysis development. PURPOSE To investigate the association of stages of bronchiectasis based on a computed tomography (CT) grading system, with(More)
A mobile caecum and ascending colon is an uncommon congenital disorder, and it is even rarer as the cause of an acute abdomen during childhood. This report presents the case of a 6-year-old boy with acute gangrenous appendicitis with a mobile caecum and ascending colon. Data from the surgical course, as well as laboratory and imaging studies, were acquired(More)
The veins of the azygos system vary greatly in mode of origin, course, numbers of tributaries and anastomoses, and nature of termination. The azygos vein system can take different courses. Such variation is important in mediastinal surgery, and knowledge of congenital variations can be of clinical importance. It is imperative for reporting radiologists to(More)
