Authors: Kumar NS, Basu S Abstract The classical bone scan findings of Rhabdomyolysis is presented in this illustration. A 60 year old female patient with complaints of low backache and bilateral lower limbs weakness over 1 year was referred for whole body skeletal status evaluation. Whole body skeletal scintigraphy undertaken 3 hrs after I.V injection of 15 mci of 99mTc-MDP revealed bilaterally symmetrical diffuse skeletal muscle tracer activity in deltoid, lattisimus dorsi, diaphragm, paraspinal muscles, gluteus muscles and muscles of thigh. On biochemical investigations for evaluation of skeletal muscle uptake r...
Carotid artery disease is a major cause of stroke. The in vivo computed tomography calcified and noncalcified plaque structural components that connote carotid plaque rupture and symptoms remain ill-defined for a given degree of stenosis. We therefore analyzed computed tomography angiography (CTA) images of symptomatic patients enrolled in the Plaques at Risk (PARISK) study designed to determine the natural history of carotid stenosis (30%-70%) causing ipsilateral neurologic events.
The objective of this study was to test and to compare the in vitro performance of balloon-expandable covered stents having the indication for use in renal arteries as chimney grafts.
The objective of this study was to determine the cause and anatomic patterns of recurrent varices after endovenous laser ablation (EVLA).
ConclusionsThe two main contributors to the difference between dosimetry calculations using MAA versus 90Y PET/MRI can be attributed to the changes in catheter positioning as well as the liver ROIs used for the calculations. In spite of these differences, our results demonstrate that the dosimetry values obtained from pre-therapy MAA SPECT/CT scans and PET/MRI post-therapy 90Y studies were not significantly different.

They are frequently misdiagnosed after surgery for inguinal hernia, inguinal lymphadenectomy or testicular malignancy. Any clinical suspicion has to lead to perform imaging with MRI and a core needle biopsy in order to obtain an accurate preoperative diagnosis. Liposarcoma and leiomyosarcoma are t...
ConclusionsIn the horizontal plane, the maxillary and zygomatic bones and the whole zygomatic arch were significantly displaced in a lateral direction after treatment with MSE. The center of rotation for the zygomaticomaxillary complex was located near the proximal portion of the zygomatic process of the temporal bone, more posteriorly and more laterally than what has been reported in the literature for tooth-borne expanders. Bone bending takes place in the zygomatic process of the temporal bone during miniscrew-supported maxillary expansion.
ConclusionsCerebral venous sinus thrombosis is an uncommon and tricky condition with unpredictable presentation and prognosis. A physician needs to have a high index of suspicion to diagnose it, especially when the patient presents with uncomplicated complaints. These simple complaints, such as headaches, usually lead to misdiagnosis and delay the appropriate diagnosis and management.
ConclusionIntraoperative CT is an effective tool to prevent reoperation in AIS surgery for incorrect screw placement. Despite high volume, experience, and specialty training, incorrect trajectories occur and systems should be in place for preventable error.Level of EvidenceLevel II.
Publication date: Available online 21 October 2018Source: SeizureAuthor(s): Réjean M. Guerriero, William D. GaillardAbstractNeuroimaging, including computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are frequently performed in patients who present with status epilepticus (SE). Here we discuss the role of these neuroimaging modalities in clinical evaluation and seizure localization. Additionally, translational neuroimaging research and advanced imaging technologies, such as perfusion and radionucleotide imaging may also contribute to localization of the seizure onset zone and yield opportunities to better ...
