Functional disorders of the pelvic floor are common healthcare problems owing to increased incidence of obesity, pelvic surgeries, childbirth, heavy physical exertion etc. In the past, fluoroscopic defecography was used in their diagnosis, but it had its limitations like radiation exposure. Endoanal sonography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) were also used to assess the pelvic pathologies but they could not assess the pelvic floor function.

Consolidative radiotherapy after immuno-chemotherapy in localized bulky diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) patients significantly improves both, overall and progression-free survival and treatment is in principle curative. Therefore protection of organs at risk is highly relevant. Two 53-years and 18-years old patients with bulky mediastinal DLBCL were planned with and without deep inspiration breath-hold (DIBH) and volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT). DIBH reduced the doses to the heart ...

A 37-year-old male patient with a complaint of malaise applied to the internal medicine. The abdominal CT revealed an huge nonadenom adrenal mass lesion with 51 × 43 × 64 mm size. The significant finding was adreniform shape of gland was maintained in the lesion. The adrenal lymphoma should be considered in patients with adreniform shape of nonadenom adrenal lesion on CT. The MRI enables differentiation of adrenal adenomas from other adrenal malignancies, but specific diagnosis might not be ac...
