Banding and Step-Stair Artifacts on the Cardiac-CT Caused By Pseudo-Ectopic Beats by Amolak Singh et al.

Interactive Image Stack

Abstract: Step-stair and banding artifacts may result from irregular ventricular rhythm caused by atrial fibrillation or premature ectopic ventricular contractions. In the case reported here, severe banding and misalignment artifacts occurred due to electrocardiographic noise mimicking ectopic beats. Severe EKG noise or pseudo-ectopic beats may cause rare but serious artifacts during cardiac-CT acquisition. Vendor-provided software for correcting ectopic beats can be used to remove pseudo-ectopic beats and eliminate artifacts caused by the EKG noise. All efforts should be made to prevent this kind of problem from happening in the first place.

Significance of Reversal of Diastolic Blood Flow in the Evolution of Testicular Infarction as a Complication of Epididymo-Orchitis by Robert Marks et al.

Abstract: We report a case of a 50-year-old male who presented to the Emergency Department and was diagnosed with epididymo-orchitis. Sonographic evaluation of the testicle initially showed a normal, low resistance color Doppler waveform. The patient was admitted to the hospital. A follow up sonogram two days later demonstrated reversal of diastolic arterial flow on Pulse-Wave color Doppler imaging. Reversal of diastolic blood flow in testicular color Doppler sonography is a sign of impending infarction. On hospital day 6, the patient had a follow up ultrasound which demonstrated infarction of the testicle. Pathology confirmed the diagnosis and the tissue culture grew E. coli and Candida Albicans. This case documents the rapid progression of epididymo-orchitis with a normal spectral waveform to testicular infarction with reversal of diastolic blood flow on color Doppler imaging as a sign of impending infarction.

Importance of CT in Evaluating Internal Hernias after Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Surgery by Hasan S. Merali et al.

Abstract: As the incidence of obesity increases, laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (REYGB) surgery has become a surgical option for many patients. Although the laparoscopic Roux-en Y procedure has been shown to reduce weight and improve diabetes, hyperlipidemia, hypertension and sleep apnea, it is not without significant risks, as more than 10% of patients who undergo this procedure have postoperative GI complications. This is a case of a 51 year old man who presented with diffuse abdominal pain one month status-post Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. CT imaging proved to be crucial in the diagnosis of this pathology with small bowel volvulus and ischemia. We review some key CT findings that can aid clinicians in diagnosing internal hernias since this complication is often misdiagnosed and have a mortality rate of more than 50%.

A giant heterogeneous abdominoscrotal mass: haemorrhagic hydrocele by Antonio Amodeo et al.

Abstract: A hydrocele is a collection of fluid in the space surrounding the testicle between the layers of the tunica vaginalis. Occasionally the scrotal hydrocele may extend through the inguinal canal, deep inguinal ring, and into the abdomen as an abdominoscrotal hydrocele. Traditionally, abdominoscrotal hydrocele have been evaluated and diagnosed with US. However if a relationship between the abdominal mass and the hydrocele is not clearly defined by sonography, the traditional modality for imaging the abdomen and the scrotum such as CT or MRI, should be considered because it can be difficult to clearly delineate the anatomy and the full extent of the abnormality. We present a rare case of a giant hemorrhagic abdominoscrotal hydrocele in a 24 year old man that required an elective operative laparotomy for complete excision of the abdominolscrotal mass.

Fatal Bleeding Disorder as the First Manifestation of a Giant Aortic Aneurysm by Natalia Vallianou et al.

Abstract: Aortic aneurysms are a rare cause of consumption coagulopathy. We describe an 82-year old woman with a previously unrecognized giant aneurysm of the thoracic aorta. The first manifestation of this condition was hemoptysis that was due to an exacerbation of chronic disseminated intravascular coagulation. The patient eventually died despite intensive conservative treatment, as she declined late surgical intervention. This case underscores the need to exclude aortic aneurysms by performing a chest X-ray in elderly patients with bleeding disorders.

Noncontrast and contrast enhanced computed tomography for diagnosing acute appendicitis: A retrospective study for the usefulness by Maki Kitagawa et al.

Abstract: Abdominal computed tomography (CT) provides great benefits for the differential diagnosis in patients complaining of acute abdominal pain. However, the use of diagnostic X-rays is associated with the cumulative risk of cancer development. In order to determine the relative usefulness of noncontrast and enhanced CT with intravenous contrast material for diagnosing acute appendicitis, the retrospective analysis was performed using 247 patients (46 children and 201 adults) with clinically suspected appendicitis, who were admitted to our hospital from 2002 to 2006 and underwent noncontrast or combined noncontrast and enhanced CT examination. Of 185 patients who were diagnosed to have acute appendicitis with appendiceal thickening (167 cases) or normal-sized appendix (18 cases), 73 cases underwent noncontrast CT alone and these 73 cases could be retrospectively diagnosed to have appendicitis on noncontrast CT. On the other hand, 112 cases of these 185 patients underwent noncontrast CT followed by enhanced CT, and vermiform appendix was detected in 86 cases of them (86/112, 76.8%) on noncontrast CT. These 86 cases could be retrospectively diagnosed to have acute appendicitis on noncontrast CT, whereas enhanced CT was required to detect vermiform appendix and to obtain the final diagnosis of appendicitis in the remaining 26 cases (26/112, 23.2%). Enhanced CT was superior to noncontrast CT in diagnosing appendicitis in all age and any gender groups. We suggest that enhanced, but not noncontrast, CT should be primarily performed for diagnosing acute appendicitis in all patients to minimize the radiation exposure unless intravenous administration of contrast material is contraindicated.

Delayed presentation of a vertebral arterio-venous fistula secondary to penetrating cervical trauma: endovascular management using coil embolisation - a case report by Alex Mortimer et al.

Abstract: Vertebro-vertebral arteriovenous fistulae occur infrequently. We report on such a case with delayed presentation following penetrating neck injury. This was successfully treated via coil embolisation. A 40-year-old woman presented with a subjective tinnitus that was abolished by turning her head to the right. She had sustained penetrating neck trauma 6 months earlier. Doppler Ultrasound and magnetic resonance angiogram confirmed the presence of a vertebral arterio-venous fistula. Using a trans-femoral arterial approach, the left vertebral artery was embolised by deployment of multiple coils. The patient had no return of symptoms at 3 months follow up. Radiological diagnosis and endovascular management of this condition is discussed.
