Contribution of Reformatted Multislice Temporal Computed Tomography Images in the Planes of Stenvers and Pöschl to the Diagnosis of Superior Semicircular Canal Dehiscence

Objective In the diagnosis of superior semicircular canal dehiscence (SSCD), computed tomography (CT) is the only imaging method. The aims of the study were to show that reformat images are more accurate than standard planes for diagnosis of SSCD and to determine the prevalence of SSCD. Methods The retrospective review yielded 1309 temporal CTs performed in our radiology department for any reason. Two radiologist interpreted CTs in standard planes collaboratively. Patients with SSCD were reinterpreted in Pöschl and Stenvers planes by 2 radiologists separately. Results Statistical analysis was made by accepting that 2 radiologists diagnosis were accurate in Pöschl plane. Coronal plane sensitivity 86%, specificity 64%, Stenvers plane sensitivity 96%, and specificity 52% have been found in the mean result of 2 observers (P

Conclusions: Our results indicate that insulin resistance is associated with plasma XOR activity and that relationship is independent of visceral adiposity and adiponectin level, suggesting that the development of insulin resistance resulting from increased visceral adiposity and/or reduced serum adiponectin contributes to increased uric acid production by stimulating XOR activity.

ConclusionsThe single-port approach has advantages as easier surgical planning and transition for combined and multi-quadrants surgeries: faster recovery, minimal postoperative pain and need for opioids, and excellent cosmetic outcome. We suggest that combined procedures should be performed only in high volume institutions by surgeons with vast experience in robotic surgery in selected patients.ResumenIntroducciónPresentar el primer caso de cirugía multicuadrante concomitante —prostatectomía radical robótica y nefrectomía parcial robótica izquierda— realizadas con t&eac...

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.
