Previously it has been very difficult or impossible for radiologists to delineate accurately the size and extent of glomus tympanicum tumors. By utilizing axial transverse and coronal computed tomography detailed enlargement techniques we have been able to accurately demonstrate four such...
The computed tomographic findings of acquired renal oxalosis secondary to small bowel bypass are presented.
A case of Budd-Chiari syndrome is presented in which computed tomography (CT) and ultrasonography suggested the correct diagnosis and excluded adjacent tumor as the cause of hepatic vein occlusion. The CT appearance in this case (homogeneously increased attenuation of an enlarged caudate lobe)...
Computed tomography (CT) accurately demonstrated the cystic nature of a superior mediastinal mass, which was confirmed at thoracotomy to be a parathyroid cyst. To our knowledge this is the only case of a mediastinal parathyroid cyst characterized preoperatively by CT.
A case in which a large right renal cyst underwent spontaneous rupture into the perinephric space is presented. The ruptured cyst and subsequent reaccumulation of cyst fluid was demonstrated by computed tomography. The varied etiologies for this phenomenon are discussed.
Computed tomography (CT) is an accurate and efficient means for evaluating and characterizing renal masses. Using established criteria, benign cortical cysts may be accurately differentiated from complex cysts or solid renal lesions. We report a case of cyst wall thickening simulating a cystic...
Two cases of retroperitoneal fibrosis are reported. In both cases ureterolysis was performed and prednisone was given postoperatively. Follow-up computed tomography revealed that the retroperitoneal mass decreased in size, especially during the first year of corticosteroid therapy.
Genitourinary schistosomiasis is usually due to
A case of unsuspected schistosomiasis of the urinary tract that was correctly diagnosed by computed tomography (CT) is presented. Noncontrast CT studies of patients from areas where schistosomiasis is endemic should aid in the detection of characteristic ureteral and bladder calcifications.
Computed tomography (CT) is generally superior to plain chest radiographs in differentiating pleural and pulmonary parenchymal lesions. We report a patient with asbestos exposure who had a rare interlobar pleural plaque involving the major fissure. In this patient CT suggested the presence of a...
