[Emergency imaging in pregnant women]

BORBÉLY Krisztina, KATHIA Chaumoître, FORRAI Gábor

[The use of adequate imaging protocol reduces morbidity and mortality in emergency cases of pregnant women. The least harmful, but sufficiently informative imaging method should be chosen that provides us with the diagnosis in the shortest delay. Although the reduction of harmful effects is important, life threatening complications can be avoided by an indicated and well effectuated imaging method using ionizing radiation.]

[Pulmonary abnormalities in haematological malignancies - The role of imaging in differential]

GYŐRI Gabriella, MAGYAR Péter, KOVÁCS Balázs, BÉRCZI Viktor, BALASSA Katalin, DEMETER Judit

[Patients with hematological malignancies may develop a wide range of pulmonary abnormalities due to the hematological disease itself as well as in response to therapy. Immunosuppression and intensive chemotherapy induced severe neutropenia hold a high risk of infection. Infectionrelated morbidity and mortality are still high. One of the most common infectious complications is invasive mycosis, which is lethal in a high percentage of cases if not treated immediately and adequately.... tovább »

[Differential diagnosis of malignant cervical lymph nodes with real-time ultrasonographic elastography and Doppler ultrasonography]

ARDA Kemal, CILEDAG Nazan, GUMUSDAG Demir Pelin

[PURPOSE - Real-time ultrasonographic elastography is a new imaging technique which is used in characterizing the difference in hardness between pathologic and normal tissue. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the diagnostic performance of real-time ultrasonographic elastography and Doppler ultrasonography (DUS) individually and combined in differentiation of benign and malignant cervical lymph nodes (LN). PATIENTS AND METHODS - Fifty-one patients (12 men, 39 women) referred for... tovább »

[Interdisciplinary mummy research - Paleoradiology and paleopathology research of the Archbishop of Kalocsa Pál Széchényi’s mummy]

KRISTÓF Lilla Alida, POHÁRNOK László, KERÉNYI Tibor, TÓTH Vilmos, ISTÓK Roland, HARGITTAI Péter, FORNET Béla, PAP Ildikó, PÁLFI György

[Purpose - The scientific study of Pál Széchényi’s mummy was carried out by our research team composed of the members of several institutions in 2007 April. The scientific examinations represented a milestone, since up till now it was unclear whether it was a natural or artificial mummy and the century-old question whether Pál Széchényi was in fact a victim of arsenic poisoning in 1710 or it was only a legend could also be answered. Methods - The non-invasive examinations were carried out with... tovább »

[Fournier’s gangrene]

MÁTÉKA Ilona, MORVAY Zita, PALKÓ András

[INTRODUCTION - Fournier’s gangrene is a rare, rapidly progressive specific form of necrotizing fasciitis that involves the soft tissues of the genital and perianal regions. The infection may spread from these regions along the abdominal wall or towards the lower limbs and has a very high mortality rate. History of the patient, the clinical features and the imaging techniques all together help to recognize the condition and to localize the affected area. CASE REPORT - We present the case of a... tovább »

[Acute carpal tunnel syndrome after hyperventilation tetany]

JOSEF Böhm

[INTRODUCTION - Nerves show the same morphologic changes under compression. CASE REPORT - We describe the morphologic changes of the nerve in temporal course in an acute carpal tunnel syndrome after hyperventilation tetany. CONCLUSION - High-resolution sonography is suited for the imaging of peripheral nerve lesions.]
