PETRI Klára, HORVÁTH Anikó, MOLNÁR Zsuzsa, VÁRADY Erika, SCHNEIDER Tamás, ROSTA András, GŐDÉNY Mária

[Certain viral infections, gene mutations and immune suppression are likely to play some role in the development of malignant lymphomas. The clinical stage at the time of diagnosis is a decisive factor of prognosis. The evaluation of the nodal and extranodal manifestation of the disease is performed by standardized imaging techniques. Most frequent extranodal manifestation involves the bone marrow, the lung and the gastrointestinal tract. Different imaging techniques are indispensable in... tovább »

[In vitro optimization of sequences applicable for the MR examination of the gastrointestinal tract with respect to certain contrast materials]

BABOS Magor, PALKÓ András, KARDOS Lilla, CSERNAY László

[PURPOSE - Optimization of gradient-echo and spin-echo sequences in order to visualize oral contrast media for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the small bowel using a 1-T unit. MATERIAL AND METHODS - Authors investigated the optimal appearance of four different potential oral contrast media (rosehip syrup, blackcurrant extract, iron(III)-desferrioxamine, cocoa) with different spin-echo and gradientecho sequences using a simple plastic model. They were searching the optimal solution by... tovább »

SZÁNTÓ Dezső, SZŰCS Gabriella, DITRÓI Edit

[INTRODUCTION - In 58 per cent of cases the fistulas and perforations are developing in middle third part of the esophagus. CASE REPORT - A 58 year old male patient's left lung was surgically removed due to drug-resistant actinomycosis. The pneumectomy has induced mediastinal dislocation and fibrothorax. Six years later the patient complained of odyno-dysphagia and of swallowing cough. On chest plain film we observed left-sided hydrothorax and barium swallows showed perforation of esophagus at... tovább »
