Chest x-rays demonstrate an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (AICD) and left ventricular assist device in situ. The heart is markedly enlarged with evidence of congestive cardiac failure. Sternotomy wires and PICC noted.
Left ventricular aneurysm: Coronal view on portal venous phase: Aneurysmal dilation of the cardiac apex, partially filled with thrombus. The wall of the aneurysm is thinner than the wall of the rest of the left ventricle.
There is thickening of cervix with heterogenous enhancement, measuring approx. 59 x 54 mm with evidence of bilateral parametrial infiltration, encasing the right lower ureter causing mild hydroureteronephrosis. The mass is indenting on the posterior bladder wall with loss of perivesical fat plane. There is also evidence of hydrometra. Case Discussion: Histopathologically proven case of squamous cell carcinoma of uterine cervix.
Apical aneurysm (ventricular aneurysm)- Ventricular aneurysms are one of the many complications that may occur after an MI. They usually arise from a patch of weakened tissue in a ventricular wall, which swells into a bubble filled with blood. This, in turn, may block the passageways leading out of the heart, leading to severely constricted blood flow to the body. Ventricular aneurysms can be fatal. They are usually non-rupturing because they are lined by scar tissue.
Bone algorithm CT and T2 weighted MRI in an 11 month old: The skull bones are thickened and dense; predominantly at the skull base with compression of the optic nerve canals and other skull base fissures and foramina. Findings are consistent with skull osteopetrosis. Osteopetrosis (or Albers-Schonberg disease) is a rare herediatry disorder that results from defective osteoclasts. Bones become sclerotic and thick, but their abnormal structure results in them being both weak and brittle.
A colovesical fistula is the presence of a communication between the lumen of the colon and that of the bladder, either directly or via an intervening abscess cavity. The demographics will match those of the underlying cause including: diverticulitis : most common ~ 60% colorectal cancer (CRC) : ~ 20% Crohn's disease : ~ 10% radiotherapy appendicitis trauma Read more: http://radiopaedia.org/articles/colovesical-fistula
