AbstractPurposeTo measure the age-dependent changes of anatomical positions and relations between the trachea, cricoid cartilage (CC), and innominate artery (IA) in adults by computed tomography (CT).MethodsA retrospective cohort reviewing images of 127 consecutive adult patients who underwent CT angiography (CTA) of the neck. The trachea-to-IA (T –IA) distance was measured as the minimal horizontal distance between them. The vertical distance between the CC and the IA was measured between the axial section, demonstrating the CC’s inferior border to the axial section at the level of the T-IA measurement.Results...

AbstractIn a previous study, a phantom study of a contrast agent extraction system with computed tomography (CT) number and raw-data-based electron density (ED) was described. The current study improved this system with monochromatic CT (mCT) number and evaluated an anthropomorphic phantom for delineation of the contrast-enhanced region. Dual-energy CT images were scanned with a tissue-equivalent phantom and an anthropomorphic phantom with an iodinated contrast agent (1 –130 mg/mL). The 40, 70, and 130 keV mCT images were reconstructed with 80 and 135 kV CT images. The contrast agent was separated from...

We describe a case of simultaneous multiple bilateral lung adenocarcinomas diagnosed by discordant epidermal growth factor receptor mutations in transbronchial lung biopsy specimens that led to a successful radical surgery. A 49 ‐year‐old woman with an abnormal shadow on her chest X‐ray visited our hospital. Chest computed tomography revealed a 13‐mm diameter nodule in S9 on the right and a 47‐mm diameter mass in segment (S) 1 + 2 on the left. She underwent transbronchial biopsy, which revealed that both tumou rs had the same histology of papillary adenocarcinoma. The indications of radical surgery ...

We report the case of a 10 year-old male who presented to an outside hospital after falling onto a bicycle handlebar. The patient removed the handlebar embedded in his abdomen and noted bowel protruding from the wound. Upon presentation to the outside facility, he was hemodynamically stable and underwent whole-body CT scan. This demonstrated no hollow viscus, biliary, or vascular injuries. The patient was transferred to our institution where he was brought to the operating room. He underwent exploration, reduction of bowel, and closure of the abdominal hernia. We present a rare case of abdominal evisceration with traumatic...

ConclusionsThis application of dual-energy CT and VNCa imaging to cryoablation monitoring permits earlier ice visualization within the vertebral column and pelvic bones in near real time. Because these scanners and imaging techniques increase in availability in interventional suites, cryoablation of tumors along the spine and pelvic bone potentially could be performed with greater confidence.

Authors: Yeom JS, Cho JY, Woo HO Abstract Kawasaki disease (KD) is a systemic vasculitis in infants and young children. The natural history of KD has not been fully elucidated because the first case of KD was reported in late 1960s and patients who have recovered will just now entering middle age. Nevertheless, several evidences have raised concerns regarding the subclinical vascular changes in post-KD patients. KD have focused on the coronary artery aneurysms because which are directly associated with fatality. However, aneurysms have been reported in other extra-cardiac muscular arteries and their fate seems to r...
