[CT enteroclysis in small bowel Crohn’s disease]

TÓTH Géza, MAGYAR Péter

[PURPOSE - The aim of this paper is to demonstrate morphological changes of Crohn’s disease observed by CT enteroclysis and also to evaluate the role of the method in the diagnosis and the follow up of patients with known or suspected Crohn’s disease. PATIENTS AND METHODS - We evaluated retrospectively 50 typical cases who were examined earlier. Crohns’s disease was diagnosed in 42 patients before CT enteroclysis. Histological confirmation was available in 36 cases after colonoscopy and in six cases after surgery. In eight patients had a high suspicion of the disease, histological examination was not performed. CT enteroclysis findings were read by two radiologist independently and results were compared. RESULTS - CT enteroclysis showed typical signs of Crohn’s disease in all patients. Different degree of wall thickening was seen in all cases, pathological enhancement of small bowel wall (in cases 35), multilayered appearance (n=29), fibrofatty proliferation (n=33), enlarged lymph nodes (n=37), entero-enteric fistula (n=6), entero-cutan fistula n (=5), mesenteric abscess (n=5) was found. CONCLUSION - CT enteroclysis is an accurate method to detect mural and extramural abnormalities in patients with Crohn’s disease. CT enteroclysis proved highly accurate in detecting small bowel involvement and it also provides an estimation of clinical activity of the disease. CT enetroclysis can be considered as the first imaging method in patients with clinical signs of Crohn’s diseases and also in the follow up of patients with known disease.]

[Computers in radiology - The use of speech recognition system in radiological reporting]

WENINGER Csaba, KOMÁROMY Hedvig

[The radiological practice has been changed with the wide spread use of computers. New methods were introduced in digital radiology. The recognition of speech is provided by development of computer technology, which makes medical documentation easier. The object of the paper was to publish the experiences using a speech recognition system. The authors review the characteristics of conventional and computer- based radiological reporting, the advantages and problems of the speech recognition system. The Speech- MagicTM speech recognition software is a good method in the daily radiological practice which makes reporting easier and, decreases the patient's waiting time. It is possible to use the system easily after a short period of learning time.]

[Radiological diagnosis of lung cancer - 2005 Literature review Onco Update 2005]

BALÁZS György

[Our aim is to review the radiologic literature of lung cancer of 2004 and some remarkable publications from 2003. There are three main groups in the recent publications dealing with lung cancer’s radiology. The first group comprises those reviews and metaanalyses which focus on the overall utility and reliability of routinely applied modalities such as CT and MRI. In the second group we find original articles reporting on the experience with new modalities. This group is dominated by publications dealing with positron emission tomography and the first clinical results of combined PET-CT technology. In the third part we review those articles dealing with lung cancer screening. Radiological lung cancer screening is in the focus of interest again, mainly due to the introduction of low-dose CT which is undoubtadly the most sensitive radiological modality for the early detection of lesions, however, its clinical utility is debated. The papers referred are basically sceptic, but this is not the end, because controlled long term follow-up studies are still in progress. Part of the publications report on the first clinical results of new methods, while others give valuable additional data regarding the performance of “well established” radiological modalities.]
