They have traditionally BRAIN AND ITS COVERINGS CHAPTER 12 359 B A Figure 12-34. Notice the fascicular arrangement. The last topic, monitoring devices and postoperative changes, is one with which students should be familiar. CT urography. The lung is displaced anteriorly. The patient now needs breast ultrasonography. This is characteristic of “pseudotumor” or fluid loculated in the fissure, in this case, the left major fissure. C. Surgical repair will likely be successful. T2-weighted MR imaging demonstrating cirrhosis, consisting of diffuse heterogeneity due to innumerable tiny low signal intensity nodules, regenerative nodules containing fibrous tissue and iron. Secondary malignancies involving the small bowel are much more common than the primary types. Normal size, location, orientation, and contour of the kidneys. Displacement of the gas pattern in the duodenum and jejunum to the left side is indicative of hepatomegaly (C is the correct answer to Question 8-9). Halpert, RD. To do this, the physician first categorizes the patient as asymptomatic or symptomatic. retrograde into tributary veins, particularly the azygous vein (Figure 3-20). Neither hemidiaphragm can be followed posteriorly to the chest wall. The length of the colon varies considerably, mainly because of differences in length and redundancy of the sigmoid colon and colic flexures. Following intravenous GdDTPA administration, the mass enhances uniformly (arrows), and dural tails are identified (arrowheads), allowing easy identification (Figure 12-20 C). (2) Symptomatic patients: CHAPTER 5 137 These are women who have any of the following signs or symptoms: a new or enlarging breast lump, skin changes (primarily dimpling), nipple retraction, eczematoid nipple changes, bloody or serous nipple discharge, and focal pain or tenderness. EXERCISE 4-15. It is seen in patients who have had an occupational exposure to certain chemicals, particularly polyvinyl chloride or thorotrast. In Case 12-8, what is the most likely explanation for the patient’s mental status changes (Figure 12-22 A, B)? Table 4-2. These are visible in radiographs as thin, crisp white lines that are arranged not randomly but in predictable patterns that enhance the stress-bearing capability of the bone. They can be further subdivided into demyelinating conditions (destruction or injury of normally formed myelin) and dysmyelinating conditions (abnormal formation or maintenance of myelin, usually because of an enzyme deficiency). A thin rim of calcium added to the bony contour of both sides of the right femoral metaphysis (Figure 6-29, arrows) is due to periosteal elevation. When large enough to be seen on MR, the calcification is seen as a signal void. Such abnormalities may be minor, such as straightening or reversal of normal cervical lordosis in the case of muscle spasm. Liver metastases may be present even when both general and specific serum markers for tumor, such as liver function tests and carcinoembryonic antigen, are normal. The Doppler sample is placed in line with the left ventricular outflow and aorta (shown in miniature echocardiogram image at top right). L, liver; A, aorta; S, spleen. Neoplastic polyps can be sessile or pedunculated and smooth or lobulated (Figure 10-50). The tricuspid insufficiency results in a massively enlarged right atrium, and the pulmonary vascularity is usually diminished due to decreased flow through the pulmonary arteries. Figure 5-15. Interpretation of the renal collecting system, ureters, and bladder with MR urography is similar to that of RADIOLOGY OF THE URINARY TRACT Figure 9-12. Figure 10-25. These findings, in conjunction with tenderness to palpation by the transducer over the GB (sonographic Murphy’s sign), strongly suggest acute cholecystitis. B. anterior mediastinal mass. In these patients, CT should be performed for diagnosis. Computed Tomography CT scans consist of computer-generated cross-sectional images obtained from a rotating x-ray beam and detector system. On US and CT, flow within an enlarged rounded vessel can be seen. The cause of the discharge is frequently not identified. 1989;5: 30-31. Manual of Gastrointestinal Fluoroscopy. The cortex is thick and homogenously white in the mid shaft of the metacarpal. CT scan in a patient who presented with acute left abdominal pain. Cysts are seen as a component of hormone-related breast changes, but spontaneous cystic disease alone is rare at this age. C. an epidural abscess. Wherever fat is intermixed with water-containing parenchyma, there is loss of signal intensity on out-of-phase images. In particular, a pulse sequence called “out-of-phase” T1-weighted imaging, which emphasizes the presence of fat intermixed with any host water-containing tissue, is very sensitive in the detection of the presence or absence of fat within focal fat or focal fatty sparing, respectively. Also note cholelithiasis (arrow) and splenomegaly (S). Knee Joint Instability Stability of the knee, which is a hinge joint, is provided by the muscles and the ligamentous complexes. (A–C) Case 4-23. After needle placement, the patient is taken to the operating theater for excision of the lesion by the surgeon. barium swallow” and is done in conjunction with a swallowing therapist. Honeycomb pattern: A number of ring shadows or cystic spaces within the lung representing airspaces 5 to 10 mm in diameter with walls 2 to 3 mm thick that resemble a true honeycomb. Connective Tissue Diseases and Seronegative Spondyloarthropathies Generally, in the clinical setting of polyarticular stiffness and pain, conventional radiographs are used as the initial survey of the affected joints. Intravenous administration of contrast agents is unnecessary in the usual trauma setting. CT in candidiasis showing multiple small, low-density lesions scattered throughout the liver (arrowheads), representing multifocal fungal abscesses. Case 13-8. The left SVC ultimately drains into the coronary sinus, which then enters the right atrium. Because ultrasound radiation is nonionizing, no adverse biological effects have been observed at diagnostic power levels. Using this technique, volumetric acquisitions can be performed in a single breath hold. Mammogram of patient in this case shows a nodular density (arrow), with indistinct margins (C is the correct answer to Question 5-11). (B) Axial CT of the chest in this patient reveals a heterogeneous superior mediastinal mass originating from the thyroid gland. Musculoskeletal Imaging: The Requisites. AIRSPACE DISEASES 4-7. Calcifications occurring in the kidney can be dystrophic, related to abnormal tissue such as within tumors, cysts, or infection. NM hepatobiliary scans, also called HIDA (hepatobiliary iminodiacetic acid) scans, can be used to assess for a bile leak if that is suspected. The radiation produced in this manner is called Bremsstrahlung (braking radiation) and represents only about 1% of the electron energy dumped into the anode by the electron beam; the other 99% goes into heat. Therefore, imaging studies that rely primarily on anatomy will only be helpful if they unequivocally show evidence of new lytic lesions. Diffusion-weighted MR imaging of the vertebral body may differentiate benign from malignant fracture, although its usefulness is still controversial. (C) Oblique view. The patient’s visual difficulties were due to optic neuritis, a common abnormality in multiple sclerosis. Also note the soft-tissue swelling at multiple joints. CT in Budd-Chiari syndrome showing subtle, diffuse mottled appearance of liver (arrowheads). You first examine the lateral view of the elbow in Case 6-3 (Figure 6-10). EXERCISE 12-5. Collecting system anatomy is now visible in fine detail with the use of modern high-resolution (1 mm) spiral CT and multiplanar (coronal, sagittal) and three-dimensional reformat methods. A. Bladder calculus B. Chondrosarcoma of the sacrum C. Cystadenoma of the ovary D. Uterine fibroid calcifications 8-8. 7-10. labrum representing an anterior glenoid labral tear (C). Right lung hypoplasia causes the small size of the right hemithorax and results in shift of the heart and mediastinum to the right. A 30-year-old woman presents with dysphagia and regurgitation of undigested food. In this case, a mass in the midabdomen delineates the lower poles of both kidneys, which are fused at the midline, consistent with horseshoe kidney (D is the correct answer to Question 8-11). In contrast to inflammatory nodules, nodular pulmonary metastases are often of various diameters. Conventional Tomography Conventional tomography is mentioned mainly for historical interest. CTA is typically the first-line evaluation for dissection or laceration, particularly when a displaced fracture crosses a vascular foramen or in the case of penetrating vessel injury. Signs of mass effect are present and suggest a space-occupying lesion in the right hemithorax. The upright epiglottis (arrows both views) lies posterior to the valleculae, which are posterior to the hyoid bone (curved arrow). Clefts suggest scarring, which most often results from chronic vesicoureteral reflux/chronic bacterial pyelonephritis or from 237 renal infarcts. Spondylolysis, as this defect is known, is usually caused by a chronic stress fracture, though rarely it can be congenital or acute. Incidence of nephrogenic systemic fibrosis at two large medical centers. This chapter introduces the basic concepts in imaging of the urinary tract. Case 13-1. (B) Preinfusion T1weighted MR imaging showing background of cirrhosis and the high signal intensity of the periphery of the lesion (arrow) before contrast administration. D. expiratory phase of respiration. Positioning A technologist performing mammography must include as much breast tissue as possible in the field of view for each image. eg, barium enema versus colonoscopy, preparations will be comparable. It can be diagnosed on the Figure 6-15. The astute observer will also note a healing fracture of the superior pubic ramus. D. There is an abnormality of alignment. If the postreduction radiographs are normal after a single instance of dislocation, there is usually no need for another 192 PART 3 BONES AND JOINTS A A B B Figure 7-17. MR imaging is noninvasive, uses no ionizing radiation, is less operator-dependent, and can be performed in multiple planes. Fluoroscopy and fluoroscopically positioned spot images are also useful for 72 PART 2 CHEST E F G H Figure 4-3. (A) Single-contrast barium enema showing narrowing of the descending colon with a scalloped appearance, that is, “thumbprinting”; patient was elderly and presented with an abrupt onset of hematochezia, suggesting ischemic colitis. Septal thickening is not seen. 3-10. A A. Note that the calcification is seen much better on the lateral view. The parietal pleura adheres to an area of lung, usually in the posterior lower lobes, and gradually produces a spiraling folded area of lung, which mimics lung cancer. EXERCISE 4-1. The location of the hollow organs and the presence of gas interference remain technical problems; however, inflammatory disorders can be evaluated, such as acute appendicitis, especially in pediatric patients. All rights reserved. Although the retroperitoneal position of the kidneys usually provides an excellent window for ultrasound, patients with a large habitus continue to become more common, and in these patients sensitivity for small masses or calculi may be markedly diminished. The most likely diagnosis in Figure 4-46 A,B is A. progressive massive fibrosis, due to silicosis. Its appearance is that of a bulky lesion within the lung. A. Pancreatic cyst B. Ductal pancreatic carcinoma C. Pancreatic metastasis D. Peripancreatic lymphadenopathy 11-19. D. The new onset indicates a high probability of malignancy. Nodule: A sharply defined, discrete, circular opacity up to 3 cm in diameter within the lung. Another patient with Crohn disease of the distal small bowel with narrowing and irregularity of several segments. By ultrasound, a clearly anechoic lesion demonstrating enhanced through-transmission of sound as well as the foregoing criteria can be diagnosed as a simple cyst. A Figure Figure 3-4. B. mediastinal mass. Finally, certain examinations are contraindicated in certain patients, and an alternative test must suffice. Case 11-1. (A,B) Case 4-15: 64-year-old man who previously worked in a naval shipyard. Less common nuclear medicine studies include (l) thyroid evaluation of nodules and therapy for hyperthyroidism and thyroid cancer; (2) hepatobiliary studies to evaluate for acute cholecystitis and bile duct patency; (3) brain imaging to evaluate dementia and brain death; (4) white blood cell studies to detect infection and inflammation; (5) gastrointestinal bleeding studies to detect and localize small gastrointestinal bleeds; (6) lymphoscintigraphy to identify sentinel lymph nodes for surgery; and (7) parathyroid studies to identify adenomas and hyperplasia. They are generally benign. Many of the radiographic features of this osteosarcoma mark it as a malignant tumor. Case 6-9. 3-19. National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements. Other projections, magnification, and spot compression may be used to further evaluate abnormalities. In chronic hepatitis, the texture of the liver is coarsened as a result of the fibrotic change in the periportal space, and this may decrease the visibility of the portal vein radicles. A brain MRI, however, can more sensitively delineate small extraaxial hematomas, subdural hematomas of varying ages, and coexisting cortical contusions or shearing injuries. C. CT attenuation values within the nodule are over 30 Hounsfield units. Case 3-20: 38-year-old man with atypical chest pain. (B) Direct coronal CT image through the posterior and middle subtalar joints demonstrates obliquely oriented fracture lines entering the posterior facet (arrows). A 58-year-old man with rightsided L5 radiculopathy. However, it is not always possible to differentiate clinically between patients who have disk herniations and those whose nerves are compressed by osteophytes, and MR imaging is the best test to order for these patients. 13-2. Another view is then obtained with the patient turned 90 degrees and the left side against the receptor and arms overhead. The following paragraphs discuss the selection of the imaging techniques in a few common clinical scenarios. The frontal pelvis view for Case 7-12 (Figure 7-34) shows all of the following features except A. loss of articular space. The intrarenal collecting system consists of calyces, infundibula, and the renal pelvis. 3-5. The stomach has a complex shape and varies considerably depending on the degree of distention (see Figures 10-2, 10-3). This was biopsy-proven carcinoid, which may not be hypermetabolic on PET imaging. On MR imaging, the kidneys appear of variable signal intensity depending on the imaging factors, and as in CT, contrast-enhanced phases of imaging (arterial, corticomedullary, nephrographic, and excretory) are all visible (Figure 9-12). MR imaging of the thorax is most commonly used for cardiovascular imaging, but there are indications for MR imaging in mediastinal and pulmonary parenchymal imaging as well (Table 4-5). Table 2-1. Lack of ionizing radiation adds to its appeal, although cost, availability, claustrophobia, and the contraindication of certain materials including pacemakers remain major drawbacks.
