A rare case of apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy with massive left ventricular endomyocardial calcification was studied with MR. The extent of the hypertrophy was clearly demonstrated, enabling accurate estimations of myocardial mass and volumes. Furthermore, an apical calcification was found...
Chloral hydrate is commonly used to sedate children before CT. However, no prospective study has been published of the safety and efficacy of chloral hydrate at high dose levels for children undergoing CT. We define high dose levels of oral chloral hydrate to be 80–100 mg/kg, with a maximum...
Computed tomographic investigation of the brain is frequently accomplished by scanning parallel to the canthomeatal line. In these scans, evaluation of the brain stem and neighboring structures is often compromised by streak artifacts from bone-induced beam hardening. These artifacts may be...
Dorsal defect of the patella (DDP) is a benign lesion with characteristic radiologic features. We describe the MR appearance of a typical DDP and a healed DDP as seen in two patients. The classic CT appearance is also described.
Magnetic resonance imaging was performed in four patients with biopsy proven idiopathic portal hypertension (IPH). The MR images show proximity of medium-sized intrahepatic vessels to each other and to the liver surface in all patients. Small vessels running parallel to the second order branches...
A case in which pus within a bladder diverticulum simulated a deep pelvic abscess is presented. This pitfall in CT diagnosis should be considered in patients with bladder outlet obstruction with symptoms of infection.
Static CT is of established value in evaluating the knee joint. The use of knee manipulation followed by repeat CT to establish a definitive diagnosis has not been previously described. An illustrative case is presented.
We review CT of 24 cases of intraabdominal abscess with fistulous communication to the GI tract confirmed by GI contrast study or fistulogram. Underlying causes of fistulization included recent GI tract surgery (13), diverticulitis (four), unknown etiology (three), malignant neoplasm (two),...
