Full Text Available Radiological imaging plays a crucial role in the diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma HCC as the noninvasive diagnosis of HCC in high-risk patients by typical imaging findings alone is widely adopted in major practice guidelines for HCC. Retrospective analysis of CT data demonstrated presence of sigmoid colon tumor.

Two weeks after the initiation of treatment, he became afebrile with gradual regression of the cavitary lesion and consolidations. It may be found paragonimmiasis an isolated malformation or as a sequela of pulmonary venous hypertension.

Multimodality imaging reports on this entity are few. We analyzed patient clinical presentations, underlying pathologies, radiologic findings, and clinical outcomes. The development of such robots involves addressing many challenges and is raising concerns that are related to fear of their application implications and potential ethical issues. Persistent diffuse pulmonary interstitial emphysema mimicking pulmonary emphysema.

Confirmation of the disease by biopsy is essential, but unfortunately there are few successful proven management options for patients with worsening disease.

Conservative management and monitoring for resolution of TPP is highly effective as in most cases it self-resolves without issue or need for intervention. Later findings include thin-walled cysts, mass-like consolidation, nodules, or paragonimiasos. In the case of equivocal diagnosis, invasive conventional angiography is considered the gold standard.


T1- weighted sequences of the neurohypophysis showed loss of signal intensity. Contiguous spinal metastasis mimicking infectious spondylodiscitis.

Pulmonary Paragonimiasisa rare cause of haemoptysis. The uptake was unchanged, variable in appearance or non-persistent on follow-up scans and less extensive than the fibrocystic changes seen on chest radiographs. We were only able to identify the cyst as an PKC rather than a paradental cyst after histological analysis. Therefore, patients with PPL who do not undergo surgery can be misdiagnosed and consequently treated inappropriately.

We categorized the chest CT patterns of those lesions as follows: Use this site remotely Bookmark your favorite content Track your self-assessment progress and more!
