PURPOSE: With the development of patient portals, the opportunity exists to identify gaps in practice by analyzing priorities patients place on the receipt and comprehension of radiology reports. Our purpose was to describe the nature of radiology-specific patient information requests by analysis of patient-initiated messages submitted through a web-based electronic patient portal. METHODS: Institutional review board approval was obtained and informed consent waived for this HIPAA-compliant retrospective cross-sectional study...

Pleural Disease Global Case ReportsSESSION TYPE: Global Case ReportPRESENTED ON: Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PMINTRODUCTION: Hemangioma is a compact, abnormal collection of blood vessels. It is a common benign vascular tumor, however, quite rare in some location including the thorax. Gindhart et al reported that it is less than 0.5% of all mediastinal masses and up to 75% of these lesions manifest before the age of 35 (1). Hemangiomas constitute 7% of all benign tumours.CASE PRESENTATION: A case of a 41 y...

Spine is always a great deal in tramatology. Complete clinical exam associated to plain Xray is the best challenge. CT-scan is preferred when there is osteoarthritis. IRM is used to check ligaments ("coup du lapin") or for medullar contusion.

Numerous endovascular stent grafts to treat intrarenal aortic aneurysms are now commercially available, and many new concepts are currently in development worldwide. In order to objectively quantify their outcomes, we propose a detailed protocol to examine a reference device that was harvested from a patient who died a few hours after endovascular stent-graft deployment for an abdominal aortic aneurysm according to the 3Bs rule (biocompatibility, biofunctionality, and biodurability). Relevant patient history of this 63-year-old man included radiotherapy treatment for lung cancer...

Plain Xrays should stay in pole position for the evaluation of shoulder's pathologies. They allow frequently to make a diagnosis of the lesion. Indications to complementary exams are well established. CT-scan and MRI have to give responses to precise questions, which then will permit to manage the treatment. CT-scan allows to evaluate accurately bone structures. It is very useful for analysing complex fractures of the proximal humerus. It allows also to evaluate the amount of glenoid wear to correct before implanting a prosthesis...

The authors describe a distinct clinical entity consisting of bony tenderness, increased isotope uptake along the metaphyses and/or diaphyses and magnetic resonance changes simulating a bone marrow-replacing lesion. Bone biopsies indicate the presence of bone marrow fibrosis and some new bone formation. Nine such cases were prospectively evaluated according to a standardized protocol including clinical examination, x-rays, bone scan and CT scan as well as MRI scans including contrast medium injection. All patients presented with tibial tenderness...

In a nation-wide survey 350 knee surgeons were asked for their current diagnostic and treatment modalities in patients with osteochondritis dissecans (OD) of the knee joint: 255 questionnaires were analyzed. With respect to the different imaging techniques, standard xray studies were performed by all surgeons. Other techniques were used in the following decreasing order of preference: xray tomography, MRI, CT-scan, ultrasound, bone scan, and arthrography. The indication for surgery was primarily influenced by the standard xray, and secondarily by xray tomography, then by MRI, and CT-scan...
