[Cervical space occupying lesions: diagnosis at sonoelastography]

UJLAKI Mátyás, MAGYAR Péter, KARLINGER Kinga

[Among cervical (neck) region tumours, the thyroid lesions and the metastatic lymph nodes are the most detectable with conventional B-mode ultrasonography (US). The use of MRI and CT scans are limited because of the cost, and in case of CT, the radiation. With the introduction and constant development of sonoelastography, we have in our hands a new imaging procedure which is cheap, fast and harmless, yet giving more information to the examiner than conventional US. The elastographic examination... tovább »

[Clinical significance of nuclear scans in assessing function of thyroid nodules]

NAGY Dezső, BORBÉLY Katalin

[Functional and anatomical imaging plays an important role in the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid nodules presenting with continuously increasing number. In the first part of the paper the usefulness and recent trends of the classical nuclear medicine is discussed. The second part presents the interpretation of incidental thyroid lesions detected by PET-CT and the usefulness of PET in the evaluation of thyroid carcinoma.]

[Digital volume tomography - The use of cone beam CT in dentistry, oral and maxillofacial surgery]

PLACHTOVICS Márk

[Oral and maxillofacial radiology is a subspecialty with its own field of indication. The goal is to achieve proper diagnostic image quality with the minimal amount of harmful radiation. The most common acquisition techniques are the intraoral radiograph and the panoramic radiograph which result in an overview picture of the whole dental status of the patient or the full mouth survey with the higher doses of radiation indicated for periodontological treatment. The next level is the... tovább »

[Voiding sonocystography with ultrasound contrast material for the diagnosis of vesicoureteral reflux]

KIS Éva

[Voiding sonocystography with intravesical administration of ultrasound contrast agent is a sensitive method to detect vesicoureteral reflux without irradiation. Depicting microbubbles in the ureters and collecting system is feasible even with very small amounts of a second-generation ultrasound contrast agent, Sonovue. The reflux is graded (I-V) in a similar manner to the system used in voiding cystourethrography. In this article a detailed description is presented.]

[The effect of endovascular intervention in the presence of rare celiac trunk developmental anomalies]

VÁGÓ Andrea, SZENTPÉTERY László, FORRAI Gábor

[INTRODUCTION - The congenital absence of celiac trunk and it’s subtotal stenosis are rare abnormalities and often recognised only during digital substraction angiography (DSA). This anomaly is significant when there is a need to perform local intraarterial chemoperfusion or chemoembolisation of malignant hepatic tumours. In these cases the liver is supplied with arterial blood through the superior mesenteric artery and the gastroduodenal arch. The direction of blood flow in the common hepatic... tovább »

[Initial experiences with upper limb MR-angiography]

PAVLIKOVICS Gábor, KISS Máté, ENGLONER László, LOMBAY Béla

[INTRODUCTION - Cimino fistula is created for chronic hemodialysis. As a common complication steal syndrome may occur. Till recently, color Doppler and catheter angiography were the gold-standard diagnostic tools. We have performed MR-angiography of the upper limb to replace the more invasive conventional angiography in patients with poor general condition. PATIENT AND METHODS - A case of a 64 years old female patient with known type II diabetes is presented. Due to azotemia, the patient has... tovább »

[Diagnosis of ovarian torsion through the ultrasound and in the operating theatre - An audit and review of the current diagnostic modalities]

SHOAIB Shaikh, NYÁRI Edit, KONCZ Júlia, LAKATOS Andrea, LOMBAY Béla

[INTRODUCTION - This audit was carried out to assess the usefulness of ultrasound in the diagnosis of adnexal torsion in pediatric and adolescent patients, and to demonstrate any ultrasound characteristics which are predictive of ovarian torsion in this population. PATIENTS AND METHODS - Retrospective review of ultrasound reports, operative reports, and medical records for 17 pediatric patients treated at BAZ-County University Hospital, Miskolc, was performed. The patients had presented to the... tovább »
