A case of bilateral pelvic kidneys
SummaryA rare case of bilateral pelvic kidneys detected incidentally on computed tomography.
ConclusionIt is difficult to distinguish amputation neuroma from malignant tumors because radiological findings of a neuroma mimic findings of malignancy. Intraoperative diagnosis is necessary to select an appropriate surgical procedure due to the difficulty of preoperative diagnosis.
ConclusionsPhysicians should be alert of this tumor despite its rarity because diagnostic delays increase mortality. In this report, we summarize the features that differentiate PPAS from PE and the importance of imaging in diagnosing the tumor.

The correlations between the presence of these lesions, and the correlations of the lesions to patient age and sex, were also evaluated.Study DesignCBCT images obta...

ChenAbstractA 42-year-old woman presented with a ten-day history of dysphagia, slight chest pain and occasional vomiting. With the performance of thoracic and abdominal enhanced computed tomography (CT) and upper gastrointestinal contrast, once esophageal cancer was suspected. Significant activity mass in esophagus and mediastinal lymph nodes could be found on the imaging of 18F-FDG PET/CT, which also supported malignancy. However, T...
ConclusionsPKD can be a manifestation of PFBC, and brain calcification may be a cause of secondary PKD. So thoroughly evaluation including head CT or genetic screening for paroxysmal dyskinesia and PFBC should be applied before the diagnosis of PKD or PFBC. Moreover, negative brain calcification may not exclude the possibility of PFBC. The possible pathogenesis of primary calcification lie in the dysfunction of the protein or defective signal transduction caused by the mutations.
Conclusion: Nearly 75% of patients undergoing an 18F-FDG PET/CT scan are exceeding 20 μSv/h when leaving the imaging facility. The most effective method to reduce radiation exposure was voiding after a 30 minute wait post-exam. PMID: 31604894 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsClinical features could be useful for distinguishing C-SHP from IPF and other etiologies of ILDs.

Technical parameters may influence the stem and cup anteversion. We therefore investigated if stem anteversion could be influenced by surgical approaches in cementless THA using a tapered wedge stem with stem-first technique.HypothesisWe postulated that the ty...
ConclusionLaparoscopic approach to isolated relapse of ovarian cancer is feasible and safe, with fast recovery
ConclusionMLL remains to be underdiagnosed. Due to the obesity epidemic, clinicians must be aware of this once rare disease. The role of concurrent bariatric surgery with surgical resection of MLL warrants further studies.
