OBJECTIVE: To determine the detailed computed tomography (CT) anatomy of the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint in healthy horses. SAMPLE POPULATION: 10 cadaveric forelimbs from 10 adult horses without orthopedic disease. PROCEDURES: CT of the MCP joint was performed on 4 forelimbs. In 1 of the limbs, CT was also performed after intra-articular injection of 30 mL of contrast medium (40 mg of iodine/mL). Transverse slices 1-mm thick were obtained, and sagittal and dorsal planes were reformatted with a slice thickness of 2 mm. The CT images were matched with corresponding anatomic slices from 6 additional forelimbs. RESULTS: The third metacarpal bone, proximal sesamoid bones, and proximal phalanx could be clearly visualized. Common digital extensor tendon; accessory digital extensor tendon; lateral digital extensor tendon; superficial digital flexor tendon (including manica flexoria); deep digital flexor tendon; branches of the suspensory ligament (including its attachment); extensor branches of the suspensory ligament; collateral ligaments; straight, oblique, and cruciate distal sesamoidean ligaments; intersesamoidean ligament; annular ligament; and joint capsule could be seen. Collateral sesamoidean ligaments and short distal sesamoidean ligaments could be localized but not at all times clearly identified, whereas the metacarpointersesamoidean ligament could not be identified. The cartilage of the MCP joint could be assessed on the postcontrast sequence. CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE: CT of the equine MCP joint can be of great value when results of radiography and ultrasonography are inconclusive. Images obtained in this study may serve as reference for CT of the equine MCP joint. [less ▲]

Nous rapportons le cas d'un patient de 67 ans atteint d'un syndrome myélodysplasique et qui a développé une mucormycose pulmonaire avec extension tout à fait exceptionnelle vers le rachis dorsal responsable d'un paraplégie aiguë. Après échec d'un traitement probabiliste anti-aspergillaire, c'est finalement l'analyse des prélèvements obtenus lors de la laminectomie décompressive qui a fourni le diagnostic mycologique. En raison d'une altération majeure de l'état général, la lobectomie prévue n'a pu être réalisée et malgré l'adaptation du traitement antifongique (Abelcet, Posaconazole), le patient est décédé. La mucormycose (ou zygomycose) pulmonaire est une infection fongique peu commune qui touche essentiellement les patients immuno-déprimés. Le champignon pathogène fait partie des zygomycètes dont la caractéristique principale est la capacité d'angio-invasion. L'invasion périneurale est une autre voie de propagation récemment mise en évidence. Les difficultés thérapeutiques associées à cette pathologie sont liées au terrain d'immunodépression, aux difficultés d'obtenir rapidement un diagnostic précis ainsi qu'à l'absence de sensibilité du Mucor aux antifongiques récemment introduits (V-Fend, Cancidas). Ceci souligne le risque inhérent à un traitement antifongique empirique par ces agents et la nécessité d'un prélèvement biopsique précoce en cas de non-réponse au traitement. [less ▲]

Recently a new computed tomography semiology of the pulmonary adenocarcinoma was highlighted. Studies on ground-glass nodule and on mixed nodule showed the relation between these radiological images and the different anatomopathological forms of lung adenocarcinoma. Ground-glass opacity can correspond to precancerous lesions and morphological characteristics of nodules are correlated with the prognosis. The presence of spiculation, pleural retraction and air bronchogram is significantly more important in neoplasic lesions. The presence or the apparition of a solid component inside the nodule or the presence of indentation is highly suggestive of adenocarcinoma. A lesion smaller than 20 mm and persistant after 1 month must be, either followed up, or removed by a limited surgical resection. Lesions larger than 20 mm or associated with a solid component must be treated by conventional surgery. [less ▲]

Purpose: To retrospectively evaluate pulmonary artery (PA) clot load scores and computed tomographic (CT) cardiovascular parameters as predictors of mortality in patients with severe pulmonary embolism (PE). Materials and Methods: Institutional review board approval was obtained with waiver of informed consent. A total of 82 consecutive patients (42 women, 40 men; mean age +/- standard deviation, 61 years +/- 15) were admitted to the intensive care unit for PE-related conditions and were evaluated by using CT pulmonary angiography. Two independent readers who were blinded to clinical outcome quantified PA clot load by using four scoring systems. Cardiovascular measurements included right ventricular (RV) and left ventricular (LV) short-axis measurements; RV short axis to LV short axis (RV/LV) ratios; main PA, ascending aorta, azygos vein, and superior vena cava diameters; and main PA diameter to aorta diameter ratios. Reflux of contrast medium into the inferior vena cava, leftward bowing of the interventricular septum, pleural or pericardial effusion, pulmonary consolidation, infarct, platelike atelectasis, and mosaic ground-glass opacity were also recorded. Results were correlated with patient outcome during hospital stay by using the Wilcoxon rank sum and x(2) tests. Results: Twelve patients died within 1-14 days. RV and LV short axis; RV/LV ratio; azygos vein, superior vena cava, and aorta diameters; and contrast medium reflux into the inferior vena cava were significantly different between survivors and nonsurvivors (P <.05). No significant relationship was found between PA clot load and mortality rate. RV/LV ratio and azygos vein diameter allowed correct prediction of survival in 89% of patients (P <.001). Conclusion: RV/LV ratio and azygos vein diameter are predictors of mortality in patients with severe PE. (c) RSNA, 2006 [less ▲]

We report the case of a 52 year old man who was hospitalized within a context of a persistent deterioration of his general condition. He was suspected of having a chronic inflammatory colitis. A pulmonary radiography revealed the presence of voluminous bilateral excavated masses with hydro-aerical levels. After having refuted among others a suspicion of tuberculosis, the results of a thoracic percutaneous transpleural lung aspiration by needle under tomodensitometric control steered our diagnosis towards a vascularitis of the Wegener disease type. A treatment with corticotherapy in large doses completed with cyclophosphamid allowed for clinical, biological and radiological improvement. Wegener's granulomatosis usually starts in an insidious manner with febrile episodes and an impairment of the general condition associated with inflammatory biological signs, as observed in our patient. After these warning symptoms, come ORL and/or pulmonary and/or renal impairment, which represent the classical triad of diffused GW. However a certain number of particularities unusual for that diagnosis characterized our patient and prompted the discussion of this case. [less ▲]

PURPOSE: To compare retrospectively the incremental value of indirect computed tomographic (CT) venography performed after multi-detector row CT pulmonary angiography and single-detector row CT pulmonary angiography for the diagnosis of venous thromboembolism (VTE). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The institutional ethics committee approved this study; informed consent was not required. The authors retrospectively reviewed results of 1100 combined single-detector row CT pulmonary angiographic and indirect CT venographic examinations (542 men, 558 women; mean age, 61 years +/- 17 [standard deviation]) (group 1) and 308 combined multi-detector row CT pulmonary angiographic and indirect CT venographic examinations (150 men, 158 women; mean age, 62 years +/- 18) (group 2), performed in 1408 patients suspected of having pulmonary embolism (PE). Frequency of deep venous thrombosis (DVT), PE, and VTE, and the incremental value of indirect CT venography were recorded in both groups. Data were compared by means of the Student t test for continuous data and z statistics for independent proportions. RESULTS: VTE, PE, and DVT were found in 23.3% (n = 256), 19.9% (n = 219), and 18.3% (n = 201) of the 1100 patients in group 1, respectively, and in 23.7% (n = 73), 17.2% (n = 53), and 18.8% (n = 58) of the 308 patients in group 2, respectively (P values ranging from .273 to .876). The incremental value of indirect CT venography was 14.4% (37 of 256 patients) in group 1 and 27.4% (20 of 73 patients) in group 2. CONCLUSION: Despite potential improved accuracy of multi-detector row CT pulmonary angiography for the diagnosis of PE, the addition of indirect CT venography increased the diagnosis of VTE in 27.4% of patients.

Computed tomographic (CT) pulmonary angiography has been established as a first-line diagnostic technique in patients suspected of having pulmonary embolism. Risk stratification is important in patients with pulmonary embolism because optimal management, monitoring, and therapeutic strategies depend on the prognosis. Acute right-sided heart failure is known to be responsible for circulatory collapse and death in patients with severe pulmonary embolism. Acute right-sided heart failure can be assessed at CT pulmonary angiography by measuring the dimensions of right-sided heart cavities or upstream venous structures, such as the superior vena cava or azygos vein. The magnitude of pulmonary embolism can be calculated at CT pulmonary angiography by applying angiographic scores adapted for CT (Miller and Walsh scores) or dedicated CT scores (Qanadli and Mastora scores). The advent of CT pulmonary angiography performed with electrocardiographic gating permits new advances in assessment of acute right-sided heart failure, such as measurement of the ventricular ejection fraction. Although such findings may be useful for assessment of treatment effectiveness, their effect on prognosis in patients with severe pulmonary embolism is debated in the literature. (C) RSNA, 2006.

Background: Patients with acute pulmonary embolism (APE) present with a broad spectrum of prognoses. Computed tomographic pulmonary angiography (CTPA) has progressively been established as a first line test in the APE diagnostic algorithm, but estimation of short term prognosis by this method remains to be explored. Methods: Eighty two patients admitted with APE were divided into three groups according to their clinical presentation: pulmonary infarction (n=21), prominent dyspnoea (n=29), and circulatory failure (n=32). CTPA studies included assessment of both pulmonary obstruction index and right heart overload. Haemodynamic evaluation was based on systolic aortic blood pressure, heart rate, and systolic pulmonary arterial pressure obtained non-invasively by echocardiography at the time of diagnosis of pulmonary embolism. Results: The mortality rate was 0%, 13.8% and 25% in the three groups, respectively. Neither the pulmonary obstruction index nor the pulmonary artery pressure could predict patient outcome. In contrast, a significant correlation with mortality was found using the systolic blood pressure (p<0.001) and heart rate (p<0.05), as well as from imaging parameters including right to left ventricle minor axis ratio (p<0.005), proximal superior vena cava diameter (p<0.001), azygos vein diameter (p<0.001), and presence of contrast regurgitation into the inferior vena cava (p=0.001). Analysis from logistic regression aimed at testing for mortality prediction revealed true reclassification of 89% using radiological variables. Conclusion: These results suggest that CTPA quantification of right ventricular strain is an accurate predictor of in-hospital death related to pulmonary embolism. [less ▲]
