Computer assisted tomography (CAT) data from 10 patients with histologically verified primary malignant lymphomas of the brain are reported. Studies both prior to and after contrast medium administration were done on nine patients. In all these patients, tumor nodules presented with slightly...
Primary malignant lymphoma of the brain is a rare lesion characterized clinically by varied nonspecific neurologic deficits and usually a rapid fulminant deterioration and death. This course may be altered by radiotherapy, and early diagnosis assumes major importance. Laboratory tests. EEG....
Increase in the caliber and course tortuosity of the optic nerve (ON) can be demonstrated by computed tomography (CT) in cases of papilledema due to intracranial tumors, hydrocephalus. pseudotumor cerebri, and other conditions causing increased intracranial pressure. The enlargement of the ON in...
Although computed tomography (CT) delineation of normal white matter of the cerebral hemispheres has been well documented, there has been no description of white matter within the cerebellum. Through the use of phantom studies. CT number correlations between cerebellum and cerebral hemispheres,...
Computed tomography was performed following iothalamate meglumine (Conray) ventriculography in two cases of colloid cyst of the third ventricle. The application of this technique in the diagnosis of intraventricular mass lesions is discussed.
The findings observed with computed tomography (CT) in such pancreatic emergencies as necrotic-hemorrhagic pancreatitis, pancreatic abscess, broken pseudoeyst, and pancreatic ascites with mediastinitis are presented. The value of CT in these conditions, which often require surgical intervention,...
The junction of the left renal vein with the inferior vena cava is visualized on most computed tomography studies of the abdomen. This junction is a useful guide in localizing the pancreatic head, just as the superior mesenteric artery is used to localize the body of the pancreas.
Computed tomography of the chest shows that right-sided unilateral thoracic osteophytosis is a common phenomenon. The cross-sectional images obtained appear to support the thesis that aortic pulsations have a preventive effect on the formation of left-sided osteophytes.
Preliminary findings of an apparently good correlation between computed tomography and serum tumor markers—human chorionic gonadotropin and alpha fetoprotein—are presented. These findings are from an ongoing prospective randomized study evaluating the efficacy of intensive...
