- RUDIMENTARY HORN PREGNANCY: PRERUPTURE DIAGNOSIS AND MANAGEMENT. Chopra, Seema; Suri, Vanita; Aggarwal, Neelam // Indian Journal of Medical Sciences;Jan2007, Vol. 61 Issue 1, p28
A unicornuate uterus with a rudimentary horn is a rare mullerian abnormality which may cause many gynecological and obstetrical complications. Rupture of pregnant rudimentary horn in the second trimester is the usual presentation, resulting in maternal morbidity and even mortality.
- Hepatic pregnancy managed conservatively. Ramphal, S. R.; Moodley, J.; Rajaruthnam, D. // Tropical Doctor;Apr2010, Vol. 40 Issue 2, p121
We present a case of hepatic pregnancy and discuss expectant management, use of newer imaging techniques and approaches to management, such as leaving the placenta in situ, the use of magnetic resonance imaging and sonography in the follow-up of placental involution. This case report illustrates...
- MR IMAGING IN CLINICALLY SUSPECTED ACUTE CHOLECYSTITIS. Håkansson, K.; Leander, P.; Ekberg, O.; Håkansson, H.-O. // Acta Radiologica;Jul2000, Vol. 41 Issue 4, p322
AbstractPurpose: The diagnostic value of fast pulse sequences in MR imaging was compared with US in patients with clinically suspected acute cholecystitis. Material and Methods: In a prospective study of 94 patients, 35 were examined with both MR and US within 24 h. Results: MR diagnoses were...
- First reported case of ganglioneuroblastoma in pregnancy and a review of the literature. Chen, Bee Fong; Rathi, Manjusha; Al-Samarrai, Susanna; Rajeswary, Jyothi // Obstetric Medicine (1753-495X);Sep2014, Vol. 7 Issue 3, p128
Ganglioneuroblastoma is a variant of neuroblastoma tumours with mature ganglion cell differentiation which occurs commonly in cervical, mediastinal and retroperitoneal locations. Approximately 90% of ganglioneuroblastomas are seen in children younger than five years old. There are 50 adult cases...
- Fetal MRI for characterising a variety of posterior fossa anomalies suspected on 3rd trimester ultrasound examination -- a short series of 4 cases. Ranchod, Amaresh Indravadan; Andronikou, Savvas; Modi, Mala // South African Journal of Radiology;Feb2012, Vol. 16 Issue 1, p27
Fetal MRI is increasingly being used to more accurately assess abnormalities detected on screening ultrasound. The procedure is more pertinent when the initial ultrasound is done late in the third trimester and when the abnormality involves the posterior fossa of the brain. Four cases with a...

- Prenatal diagnosis of dicephalic parapagus conjoined twins. Camuzcuoglu, Hakan; Toy, Harun; Vural, Mehmet; Cece, Hasan; Aydin, Halef // Archives of Gynecology & Obstetrics;May2010, Vol. 281 Issue 3, p565
Dicephalic parapagus is a rare anomaly of monochorionic twinning. We present prenatal diagnosis of this anomaly with ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging. She was at the 19th week of gestation. Even if earlier diagnosis is possible, this was her first examination unfortunately. Baby...
- Accuracy of Ultrasonography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging in the Diagnosis of Placenta Accreta. Riteau, Anne-Sophie; Tassin, Mikael; Chambon, Guillemette; Le Vaillant, Claudine; de Laveaucoupet, Jocelyne; Quéré, Marie-Pierre; Joubert, Madeleine; Prevot, Sophie; Philippe, Henri-Jean; Benachi, Alexandra // PLoS ONE;Apr2014, Vol. 9 Issue 4, p1
Purpose: To evaluate the accuracy of ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the diagnosis of placenta accreta and to define the most relevant specific ultrasound and MRI features that may predict placental invasion. Material and Methods: This study was approved by the...
- Emergency Medicine Reports. // Emergency Medicine Reports;3/14/2011 Supplement, p1
Photographs of several diagnostic images including an ultrasound image of an inflamed appendix, coronal and axial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) images in a pregnant woman at 24 weeks gestation who suffers from appendicitis, and an ultrasonography image of a cholecystitis are presented.
