Authors: Tachibana T, Nakayama N, Matsumura A, Nakajima Y, Takahashi H, Miyazaki T, Nakajima H Abstract A 65-year-old man was diagnosed with polycythemia vera (PV) and treated with hydroxyurea. Three years later, he was admitted to our institution for severe hypoxia. Right heart catheterization revealed that the patient had pulmonary hypertension (PH). In addition, radiographic findings and resistance to pulmonary vasodilators led to the diagnosis of PH associated with pulmonary veno-occlusive disease. The administration of ruxolitinib improved his hematopoiesis and respiratory failure. While the disease is relativ...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Some studies showed a relation between chondrocalcinosis and osteoarthritis (OA). Hence, considering the importance of chondrocalcinosis diagnosis andnecessity for its integration with OA, the current study aims at investigating prevalence of chondrocalcinosis in patients above 50 years admitted to Isfahan Al-Zahra Medical Center and its relationship with OA. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a cross-sectional study, 600 patients who referred to the radiology units of Al-Zahra Hospital for radiography of different joints were studied during 2013-2014. The patients images were studied for chondroc...

Retained strings related to removal of a nephrostomy tube or placement of a ureteral stent occur (1,2) but have not been reported to produce symptoms. This case report describes hematuria and flank pain in a patient with a radiographically occult retained string in the collecting system. This case emphasizes the importance of diligent retrieval of these strings at the time of catheter removal or stent placement and close surveillance if a retained string is suspected. This is particularly pertinent in light of The Joint Commission Sentinel Event Alert statement that unintended retained foreign objects should automatically ...

Clinical measurement of ankle dorsiflexion is typically used to diagnose limited ankle range of motion. Controversy and a lack of clarity continue regarding the most accurate clinical method of measuring ankle joint dorsiflexion and the effect that the foot position (supinated, neutral, pronated) has on the true tibiotalar position. We investigated the effects of supinated, neutral and pronated foot positions on the clinical dorsiflexion measurements in 50 healthy subjects and compared these results to the radiographic measurement of tibiotalar joint position with the ankle maximally dorsiflexed in each of the 3 foot positions.

We reviewed the radiographic results of a group of patients who had undergone triplane correctional tarsometatarsal arthrodesis for symptomatic hallux abducto valgus with metatarsus primus abducto valgus. Of the 21 feet included in the present review, 17 (81%) displayed radiographic findings of metatarsal pronation preoperatively based on axial sesamoid views and positive lateral round sign on anteroposterior radiographs. At a mean follow-up period of 5.2  ± 1.6 months, a significant improvement in the tibial sesamoid position (TSP) on both anteroposterior (AP) and axial radiographs was measured.

Conclusions: Despite the obvious distinctions between orbital lymphoid tumors and lymphaticovenous malformations, several clinical radiologic specialists misdiagnosed the present orbital lesion as a vascular lesion. A combined clinicoradiographic analysis should obviate such errors and facilitate the correct diagnosis in the future.Ocul Oncol Pathol 2018;4:82-89
