OBJECTIVE. We sought to compare image quality, contrast enhancement, and radiation dose in patients undergoing ECG-triggered high-pitch helical CT or non-ECG-synchronized helical CT of the thoracoabdominal aorta. MATERIALS AND METHODS. We…

When an infant or child younger than 36 months presents with fever that has no obvious source, the major concern is overlooking a serious bacterial infection. Ask about underlying medical problems, previous hospitalizations, recent infectious…

Statistics tell us that as many as 1 in 20 members of the population will suffer a seizure at some point in their lifetime, a figure which becomes even more likely if one lives to the age of 80. Thus, a careful evidence based approach to the patient…

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in pregnancy would help define a benign pelvic mass, thereby avoiding laparotomy. METHODS: During a 2-3-year period, five pregnant women with adnexal masses suspected to be leiomyomas…

Study design: Case reports and survey of literature. Objective: Case reports of two women with tuberculosis (TB) of the spine (Pott's disease) presenting with severe back pain and diagnosed as compression fracture are described. Physicians should…

Basal cell adenocarcinoma of minor salivary glands is a relatively rare slow-growing tumor with an infiltrating growth pattern. The infiltrating growth pattern and likelihood of vascular and perineural involvement distinguishes basal cell…

Seasonal influenza remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. The Infectious Diseases Society of America has published an update of the clinical practice guideline for the diagnosis and treatment of seasonal influenza. The guideline…
