Authors: Jongjirasiri S, Waeosak P, Laothamatas J, Sritara C, Saengruang-Orn S Abstract Objective: To determine effects of obesity and gender on left ventricular mass in normotensive and hypertensive Thai patients using 320-slice cardiac computed tomography (CT). Material and Method: Left ventricular mass (LVM) obtained from 320-slice coronary CT angiogram was compared in 597 normotensive subjects (175 men [65 obese] and 422 women [133 obese], aged 55±7 years) and 483 hypertensive patients (180 men [104 obese] and 303 women [170 obese], aged 60±7 years). Obesity in Asian population was defined by ...

We greatly appreciate the comments of Drs Chick and Srinivasa. We agree that surgical therapy should be performed in patients who fail more conservative managements that may also include percutaneous ablation of the sympathetic chain and ganglia.1,2 Kim et  al3 and Garcia-Barquin et al4 reported satisfactory early results with percutaneous computed tomography-guided nerve ablations using either alcohol injection or a radiofrequency generated heat. Late recurrent symptoms and a lower patient satisfaction with longer follow-up, however, have also been reported.

A 48-year-old man was admitted with sensory deficits in the upper extremities. He had a history of aortic dissection and previously underwent prosthetic graft placement from the aortic root to the bilateral common iliac artery. He also underwent coil embolization of a left subclavian aneurysm 9 years ago. Computed tomography angiography (CTA) performed after coil embolization showed thrombosis of the aneurysm (A, blue arrow) and patency of the prosthetic graft placed from the aortic arch to the left subclavian artery (A, red arrow).

Authors: Patsikas M, Adamama-Moraitou K, Thomas A, Soultani C, Chrissogonidis I, Fotiadou A, Trikoupi G, Papadopoulou P, Ilia G, Kosmas P, Farmakis P Abstract A two-year-old, female intact, cross-breed dog presented with a two-month history of nasal discharge. Computed tomography (CT) demonstrated obliteration of both nasal cavities by soft tissue density, destruction of the nasal and ethmoidal turbinates, and lysis of the frontal and palatine bones and maxilla. Frontal sinuses and maxillary recesses were obscured by soft tissue/fluid density. Histopathological examination of the mass was diagnostic of transmissibl...

MRI provides considerable advantages for imaging of patients with peritoneal tumor. Its inherently superior contrast resolution compared with computed tomography allows MRI to more accurately depict small peritoneal tumors that are often missed on other imaging tests. Combining different contrast mechanisms, including diffusion-weighted MRI and gadolinium-enhanced MRI, provides a powerful tool for preoperative and surveillance imaging in patients being considered for cytoreductive surgery and heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy.

A 27-year-old man developed abdominal pain, weakness, and diarrhea 90 days after a motor vehicle collision. Presenting laboratory test results showed hypocalcemia (7.2 mg/dL; range, 8.6 –10.3 mg/dL) and hypoalbuminemia (1.8 g/dL; range, 3.5–4.9 g/dL). Computed tomography (CT) demonstrated a 20.1 × 10.3 × 5.5–cm lymphocele within the right midabdomen (Fig 1). Aspiration yielded fluid containing 3,150 mg/dL triglycerides. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy showed chyle in the duode num. Intranodal lymphangiography demonstrated leakage of ethiodized oil into the lymphocele (Fig 2).

ConclusionsLUS seems to be a promise tool for diagnosing pneumonia in children. However, the high heterogeneity found across the individual studies, and the absence of a reliable reference standard, make the finding questionable. More methodologically rigorous studies are needed.

Richter syndrome (RS) is the development of an aggressive lymphoma in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Two pathologic variants of RS are recognized: namely, the diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) variant and the rare Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) variant. Histologic documentation is mandatory to diagnose RS. The clinical suspicion of RS should be based on clinical signs and symptoms. Differential diagnosis between CLL progression and RS and choice of the biopsy site may take advantage of positron emission tomography/computed tomography. Molecular lesions of regulators of proliferation (CDKN2A, NOTCH1, MYC) and ...
