Sequential changes in lung density measured by CT are potentially sensitive and convenient monitors of lung abnormalities following total body irradiation (TBI). Methods have been developed to compare pre- and post-TBI CT of lung. The average local features of a cross-sectional lung slice are...
Silicone encircling bands are placed around the eyeball routinely during retinal detachment surgery. We present two cases that show the characteristic appearance of such a band on CT.
The feasibility of assessing regional cerebral perfusion using the new brain imaging agent N,N,N′-trimethyl-N′-(2)-hydroxy-3-methyl-5-(123I) iodobenzyl)-1,3-propanediamine 2 HC1 (I-123 HIPDM) and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) was evaluated in normal subjects and...
The CT findings in a case of calcified gastric carcinoma of the mucin-produeing type are described. These findings include localized thickening of the gastric wall and multiple tiny calcific nodules within it.
The CT appearance of the inferior mesenteric vein (IMV) was studied. It can best be identified by its location behind or to the left of the duodenojejunal flexure. Superiorly, it drains into either the splenic vein, superior mesenteric vein, or the splenoportal junction. Inferiorly, it continues...
A 74-year-old woman had multiple enlarged periaortic nodes with inhomogeneous enhancement on CT. Although a malignancy such as lymphoma was considered, amyloidosis involving retroperitoneal lymph nodes was confirmed on biopsy.
A child with acute myeloblastic leukemia and severe central nervous system complications during remission showed diffuse cerebral high density areas in a CT examination. These areas disappeared completely over the following few months. The possible causes for this phenomenon are discussed.
Cerebral magnetic resonance (MR) and CT imaging of two patients with polycystic lipomembranous osteodysplasia with sclerosing leukoencephalopathy (PLO-SL) showed widespread progressive central and cortical atrophy. Computed tomography revealed calcifications in the area of the caudate nuclei and...
A malignant seroma in the subscapular region of the chest wall developed postoperatively in a 51-year-old man with a malignant right pleural mesothelioma treated with extrapleural pneumonectomy. Computed tomography revealed the direct communication of the seroma with the hydrothorax. Correlation...
Computed tomography was performed in two cases of blood-brain barrier (BBB) disruption due to cerebral arteriography. The first case showed diffuse contrast enhancement in the right frontotemporal region in the distribution of the middle cerebral artery; in the second case patchy contrast...
