Respiratory-gated positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography protocols reduce lesion smearing and improve lesion detection through a synchronized acquisition of emission data. However, an objective assessment of image quality of the improvement gained from respiratory-gated PET is mainly limited to a three-dimensional (3D) approach. This work proposes a 4D numerical observer ...

Endo-perio lesions primarily occur by way of the intimate anatomic and vascular connections between the pulp and the periodontium. Endodontic-periodontal combined lesion is a clinical dilemma because making a differential diagnosis and deciding a prognosis are difficult. An untreated primary endodontic lesion may become secondarily involved with periodontal breakdown, which ...

Crouch gait is one of the most troublesome abnormal gait patterns in ambulant patients with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy (CP). Although CP is a non-progressive condition, crouch gait can result in knee extensor disruption (KED) causing deterioration or cessation of ambulation. Diagnosis of KED in crouch gait is often overlooked. ...

Convex-probe endobronchial ultrasound (CP-EBUS) is a well-established technique for the diagnosis of mediastinal and hilar lymphadenopathies (1, 2). A high yield and favorable safety profile have made it the procedure of choice in most centers where both technology and expertise are readily available. The role of CP-EBUS in mediastinal staging ...

Benign spinal meningiomas have good prognoses, with low rates of recurrence and no cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) dissemination. However, we experienced an extremely rare case of initially benign non-dura-based spinal meningioma that showed multiple CSF disseminated lesions, which progressed for 14 years. A 29-year-old woman without neurofibromatosis presented with progressing dysesthesia in ...

An eight-year-old mixed-breed dog was presented with progressive paraparesis. Neurological examination revealed a painful diffuse lesion between spinal cord segments T3 and L3. Magnetic resonance images displayed multi-focal contrast enhancing spinal cord and meningeal lesions. Cytology of these lesions revealed a malignant tumour prompting euthanasia of the dog. Histopathology confirmed ...

Hip labral impingement can cause labral tears and secondary paralabral cyst formation. Femoroacetabular impingement is the main cause of labral impingement, but other conditions such as iliopsoas tendon impingement are described. There is no description of labral cyst resulting from psoas impingement treated arthroscopically in the literature. We present the ...

Although the large majority of sellar tumours are pituitary adenomas, several other pituitary and non-pituitary origin tumours arise in the sellar and parasellar regions. Given their location, non-adenomatous lesions frequently mimic pituitary macroadenomas and can pose a diagnostic challenge for the radiologist. Distinguishing rare sellar lesions from the common macroadenoma ...

Tunnel cyst formation is a rare complication after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, usually occurring 1-5 years post-operatively, which may occasionally be symptomatic. There are multiple proposed theories regarding the etiology of tunnel cysts. Theories include necrosis, foreign-body reaction, lack of complete graft osteo-integration, and intravasation of articular fluid. It is important ...

Dacryocystocele is an umbrella term that refers to any diffuse, centrifugal enlargement of the lacrimal sac that results from combined proximal and distal obstructions in the tear drainage system. In adults, the presence of mucus in the cyst's contents leads to the modified term of dacryocystomucocele. If infection supervenes, which ...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Management of pancreatic cystic neoplasms is challenging due to limitations of current diagnostic tests. There is considerable interest in developing an accurate and cost-effective diagnostic test (or panel of tests) to differentiate cyst types and to identify those which would benefit most from surgical resection. RECENT FINDINGS: ...
