Stress fracture of athletes as a cause of groin pain.

[Stress fracture of athletes as a cause of groin pain]. Radiologe. 2019 Jan 30;: Authors: Bath K, Steinhagen I Abstract CLINICAL/METHODICAL ISSUE: In this article, suitable imaging of stress reactions and stress fractures in athletes will be examined. STANDARD RADIOLOGICAL METHODS: Diagnostic procedures include X‑ray, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and bone scintigraphy. METHODICAL INNOVATIONS: MRI represents the gold standard for these types of injuries. PERFORMANCE: Of all imaging techniques, MRI shows the highest sensitivity in terms of diagnostic and prognostic aspects in stress reactions and stress fractures. PRACTICAL RECOMMENDATIONS: Early performance of MRI to evaluate the staging, therapy and prognosis of the healing process is recommended. PMID: 30701303 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Study Design. A prospective study of patients originally randomized to total disc replacement (TDR) or multidisciplinary rehabilitation. Objective. To assess the long-term development of facet arthropathy (FA) after TDR versus nonoperative treatment, and to analyze the association between FA and clinical outcome. Summary of Background Data. FA may appear or increase following TDR, but the natural course of FA is unclear, and no previous study has evaluated the long-term development of FA following TDR compared with nonoperative treatment. Methods. The study included 126 patients with chronic low back pain and de...

Conclusion: It is difficult to diagnose XGC either preoperatively or intraoperatively, and further imaging methods are needed in the preoperative period other than ultrasonography. However, a definitive diagnosis depends exclusively on pathologic examination. PMID: 33029482 [PubMed]

We report a case of a 92-year-old man who came to the neurologist outpatient department due to left buttock pain and numbness that radiated to the left lower leg in the recent 6 months and progressed rapidly over 10 days. Diagnosis: We arranged magnetic resonance imaging for lumbar nerve lesion. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a common iliac artery mycotic aneurysm, at about 6.3 cm in diameter, which compressed the psoas muscle, nerve plexus, and vein. Interventions: We used a left-side iliac bifurcation stent graft of 12 mm in diameter for aneurysm repair. An internal iliac artery with a stent graft of 10 mm...

AbstractGastrointestinal tract lesions are major causes of acute abdominal pain. A rapid, accurate, and reliable diagnosis is required to manage patients. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a nonionizing modality that is beneficial for pregnant women, children, and young adults who are sensitive to ionizing radiation. For patients with renal impairment who are not accurately diagnosed with noncontrast computed tomography, noncontrast MRI can serve as an alternative diagnostic modality. MRI protocols used for acute abdominal pain are supposed to be optimized and prioritized to shorten scanning times. Single-shot T2-weighte...

Conclusion: Awareness of this uncommon manifestation would help differential diagnosis of periostitis and could help decrease the patient's anxiety. It should also be noted that periosteal reactions by benign entities could cause aggressive-looking periosteal reactions in post-operative regions.

Rationale: Primary sarcomatoid hepatocellular carcinoma (SHC) is a rare subtype of morphologic hepatocellular carcinoma reported on less than 1% of surgical pathology specimens. Herein, we report a rare case of SHC. The case in question was initially misdiagnosed as a liver abscess due to the clinical and radiological similarity between these 2 pathologies. Ultrasound(US)- and contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS)- guided biopsies are helpful in making an accurate diagnosis under the appropriate biopsy area and angle of puncture. Patient concerns: A 56-year old male presented to our hospital with a 2-month history of du...

Sacral tumours encompass an extensive range of differential diagnosis. The clinical presentation is often non-specific, including neurological deficits and low back pain. Accurate diagnosis of sacral lesions is challenging and requires a comprehensive imaging strategy and robust knowledge on the imaging characteristics of different pathological processes. This review will provide an updated overview of the computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and integrated positron-emission tomography (PET) –CT features of some common and rare sacral tumours and their mimics.

Conclusion: Preoperative diagnosis of CAPNON is difficult due to its rarity and nonspecific clinical and radiological findings. Surgical resection is considered in cases with worsening symptoms, progression on serial imaging, or uncertain diagnosis. Relatively inaccessible lesions with little or no clinical symptoms can be observed. PMID: 32905291 [PubMed]
