Interpreting body MRI cases: classic findings in pelvic MRI

AbstractThe high contrast resolution provided by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) compared to all other modalities allows the interpreting radiologist to make a specific diagnosis for many common and uncommon findings. In some cases, the diagnosis can be so certain that there is no differential diagnosis. In this article, we review the most classically recognized findings when interpreting MRI of the pelvis including the following: Ovaries: Simple cyst, hemorrhagic cyst, corpus luteum, dermoid, fibroma/fibrothecoma. Uterus: C-section scar, adenomyosis, endometriosis, fibroid, congenital uterine anomalies. Cervix: nabothian cyst, cervical cancer. Vagina/Vulva: Gardener ’s duct cyst, Bartholin’s gland cyst. Urethra: skene gland cyst, urethral diverticulum. Prostate: utricle cyst, Mullerian duct cyst, benign prostatic hyperplasia, prostate cancer.

ConclusionOur study did not demonstrate a protective role of vitamin E in decreasing the incidence of CIPN in patients receiving taxane-based chemotherapy. However, the recovery from CIPN was much better as compared to the control arm, which may indicate a role for vitamin E in decreasing the duration and severity of CIPN.

Dr. Laura Esserman answers the door of her bright yellow Victorian home in San Francisco’s Ashbury neighborhood with a phone at her ear. She’s wrapping up one of several meetings that day with her research team at University of California, San Francisco, where she heads the Carol Franc Buck Breast Care Center. She motions me in and reseats herself at a makeshift home office desk in her living room, sandwiched between a grand piano and set of enormous windows overlooking her front yard’s flower garden. It’s her remote base of operations when she’s not seeing patients or operating at the hospita...

Patients undergoing gastrointestinal cancer surgery often receive red blood cell (RBC) transfusions. Understanding practice variation is critical to support efforts working towards responsible RBC transfusion use. We aimed to measure the extent and importance of variation in perioperative RBC transfusion use across surgeons and hospitals among gastrointestinal cancer surgery patients.
