MR Elastography now at Star Imaging, Bund Garden. MRE assesses the entire liver and detects fibrosis at an earlier stage than any other imaging method.
As all of you are aware, the last two months have been extremely unprecedented. Even
in the times of strict lockdown Star Imaging, continued its services by keeping two of our
centres operational 24 x 7.
From 1st May , all our centres are operational with due precautions for patients and doctors.
At present we are scheduling our appointments at timely interval to avoid crowding in waiting areas.
All doctors and staff are fully geared with protective measures and our COVID PROTOCOL is in place.
We are happy to present 5 cases with interesting findings that we have imaged during this lockdown period.
So please go ahead and read the LOCKDOWN TIMES.
Take care and stay safe.
24 year old female presented with slowly progressive painless swelling in right cheek region.
Indolent symptoms since many years.
History of renal biopsy in childhood, likely for renal dysfuction.
Multiple intraparotid nodes are seen on the right side.
Soft tissue stranding of the overlying subcutaneous fat is notedwhich could be perilesional infammatory response.
Extensive bilateral multilevel cervical lymphadeno-pathy is noted.
Possibility of lymphogranulamatous disorder like Kimura's disease is likely.
No granuloma/ malignancy.
Right cheek biopsy - Lymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia, suggestive of Kimura disease.
CECT abdomen and pelvis for suspected obstruction.
Utility of the fat notch sign for adhesive bands as a cause of obstruction with risk of closed loop obstruction and strangulation
FAT NOTCH SIGN - This sign reflects insinuation of mesenteric fat at an area of adhesions with focal caliber change. This has been described
in cases of small bowel obstruction related to adhesions and is a very specific fiinding of adhesive small bowel obstruction.
61 year old male being evaluated for intestinal obstruction
61 year old lady presented with dry cough for 1 year for which she was referred for HRCT thorax.
Incidentally noted was a left breast solid lesion which appeared to be irregular.
Mammography was advised which revealed a BIRADs V lesion in the left breast.
A core biopsy was performed.
Further preoperative work up revealed thickened endometrium with solid left adenexal region.
Patient was referred for MRI pelvis.
Patients with BRCA mutation have been found to have serous tubal intraepithelial carcinoma (STIC) in the fallopian tube and fimbria but not in the ovary and this is considered to be the precursor for high grade serous carcinomas (HGSCs). The proportion of HGSCs of ovarian and tubal origin is unknown because tumor growth in advanced stages of cancer obscures the primary site. In the present case; the lesion involving the fimbrial end of the fallopian tube and that of the left ovary can be visualized separately.
