CT evaluation of pterygoid process pneumatization and the anatomic variations of related neural structures

ConclusionThe neural structures related to the pterygoid process are the seat of many anatomic variations that need to be identified by preoperative CT.

ConclusionReliable iodine quantification can be achieved using dual-source CT, but the result can be affected by patient size and dose rate. In large patients, biases may occur due to the beam-hardening and the photon-starvation effects, in which case higher dose rate and higher kVp are recommended to minimize these effects.

Authors: Regnier P, De Luca V, Brunelle S, Sfumato P, Walz J, Rybikowski S, Maubon T, Branger N, Fakhfakh S, Durand M, Gravis G, Pignot G Abstract BACKGROUND: Sarcopenia is suspected to influence the complication rates in patients undergoing radical cystectomy (RC). The aim of our study was to assess variations in sarcopenia in patients scheduled for neoadjuvant cisplatin-based chemotherapy (NAC) and RC for muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) and to explore the impact of sarcopenia on complications linked to NAC or surgery. METHODS: Between 2012 and 2017, 82 consecutive patients who underwent NAC and RC for c...

ConclusionACP pneumatization can be recognized in all ages including pediatric age. CT scan is recommended before anterior clinoidectomy to assess the presence and extent of pneumatization to avoid CSF leak complications. When recognized, reconstruction must be attempted to obliterate the connection between the intracranial space and nasal sinuses. If CSF leak recognized post-operatively, repair is feasible through open or endoscopic transnasal approach.

We present a case report of an adult woman with AKL-positive ALCL, diagnosed by endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspirate (EBUS-TBNA).A 59-year-old women with no history of breast implants, was admitted for a four-month low back pain. Initially, the patient was treated for a spondyloarthropathy, but due to persistence of the symptoms, a lumbosacral MRI was performed, showing changes in morphology and signal intensity in the vertebral body of L3, along with edema and a paravertebral collection that affected the left psoas muscle, suggesting granulomatous spondylodiscitis. Chest CT-scan showed mild left ...

CONCLUSION About one third of the injuries previously classified as grade III will be upgraded to grade IV using the 2018 AAST, which adds to the heterogeneity of grade IV injuries. Although the 2018 AAST grading provides more anatomic details on injury patterns and includes important radiologic findings, it did not outperform the 1989 AAST grading in predicting bleeding interventions. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE Prognostic and Epidemiological Study, level III.

CONCLUSION Appendiceal tumors are possible findings in appendix specimens, and most patients had uncomplicated acute appendicitis. In light of findings we conclude that CT cannot be used to exclude neoplastic etiology underlying acute appendicitis. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE Diagnostic, level IV.
