Long Segment Aplasia of the Great Saphenous Vein Associated with Short Saphenous Vein Connection: A Case Report

Mohammed Alagha and Mariam Mattar

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 22, 2018

Localised hypoplasia or aplasia of the great saphenous vein (GSV) is not uncommon, with reports primarily describing limited area of hypoplasia/aplasia around the knee. Long segment of hypoplasia/aplasia extending along the thigh and distally to lower calf is rare. We report a case of an 81-year-old lady with long segment of the GSV aplasia depicted 3 cm distal to sapheno-femoral junction (SFJ), down to 5 cm above the right ankle with direct communication with the short saphenous vein (SSV)....

Contemporary Management of Meningiomas with Radiosurgery

Selcuk Demiral, Ferrat Dincoglan, Omer Sager, Bora Uysal, Hakan Gamsiz, Fatih Ozcan, Bahar Dirican and Murat Beyzadeoglu

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: November 21, 2018

Meningiomas are the most common intracranial benign tumors. While an indolent natural history is typical for benign meningiomas, a wide spectrum of symptoms may occur depending on lesion location and proximity to critical neurovascular structures. A multidisciplinary approach may be warranted for optimal management of meningiomas. In the scarcity of prospective, randomized controlled studies to dictate treatment algorithms, decision making for treatment is based primarily on mostly retrospective...

Tensor Voting Based Vascular Bifurcation Detection in CT Images of Lung

Ruifang Sun, Jingli Shi and Xuan Yang

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 08, 2018

The accurate detection of vascular bifurcations is not helpful for pulmonary vascular disease diagnosis, but vital in (Computed Tomography) CT image analysis and processing of lung. We propose a tensor voting based method for vascular bifurcation detection in CT image of lung, which a vessel enhancement method is firstly proceeding to initially extract vessel structure, on which we perform ball voting with the pixels. Then counting the number of votes of each pixel and calculating the local maxi...

Use of Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse Elastography to Discrimination Benign and Malignant Masses for Bladder

Onur DEDE, Memik TEKE, Mansur Daggulli and Necmettin Penbegul

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 27, 2018

This study was aimed that the evaluation of tissue elasticity for determination of the characterization of bladder masses. The prospective study was performed between May and September 2014. This study included 39 patients who presented with microscopic or gross hematuria and had primary bladder mass and according to ultrasound or computed tomography results. ARFI elastography was performed by one experienced radiologist then, the shear wave velocity was measured. Two measurements were performed...

The Role of the Diffusion Tensor Imaging and the MR Tractography in the Evaluation of the Ischemic Cerebral Strokes

Ahmed H Farahat, Mervat E Lgohary and Hany Hafez

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 12, 2018

Cerebral stroke is a worldwide concern, it's classified as the most second cause of death in 2008. In this year 5.7 million deaths and about nine million patients had cerebral strokes events with resultant variable degrees of disabilities. The primary goal in stroke management is to reach an early accurate diagnosis for the patients, which will affect the choice of the treatment lines among the newly developed programs and the end stage recovery. The DTI & DTT are MRI techniques used for the 3D ...

More Than Meets the Eye: Inattentional Blindness

Ann-Christin Sannes, Aleksander Chaibi and Peter W McCarthy

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 06, 2018

The phenomenon of inattentional blindness has been discussed for years, in relation to everyday life and clinical practice. Inattentional blindness refers to the common failure to notice plainly visible items when attention is otherwise preoccupied. The purpose of this study was to assess any potential difference in inattentional blindness between chiropractic students on assessing plain film radiograph, and any difference compared to expert radiologist....
