Aims: To evaluate the correlation between lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and the resistive index (RI) of the transitional (TZ) and peripheral zone (PZ) of the prostate and to assess the impact of alpha blocker (AB) treatment on RI changes. Material and methods: TZ-RI and PZ-RI values of 60 patients with LUTS were calculated by using transrectal ultrasound (TRUS). Correlations between the severity of LUTS and RI values were established. Then, AB was given to moderately and severe symptomatic patients with LUTS. One month after AB usage, TRUS was applied to assess the impact of AB on theTZRI, PZ-RI and the international prostate . . .symptom score (IPSS). Results: Participants were divided into 3 groups as mild (n=14), moderate (n=25) and severe symptomatic (n=21) patients. Mean TZ-RI and PZ-RI were statistically different between the three groups (
Objective: To monitor the impact of Shock Wave Lithotripsy (SWL) on the renal resisive index (RI) and to investigate the potential of the RI measurement for the estimation of the optimal duration between 2 SWL sessions. Material and methods: Thirty patients with single pelvis renalis stone were included. Participitants were grouped according to their age as group1 (
Adverse reactions to vaccines vary from mild to fatal. Local reactions are often due to hypersensitivity to the adjuvant substances in the vaccine. This case report aims at illustrating the imaging findings of a fascial injection of the tetanus vaccine. A 14 year-old boy, vaccinated 6 months previously presented with a mass lesion in the left deltoid area. Magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasonographic evaluations were performed and the findings were characteristic for fascial granuloma. The histopathologic examination confirmed the diagnosis. The histopathologic examination confirmed the diagnosis. In our knowledge, this is the fi . . .rst case of granuloma post intrafascial injection of tetanus vaccine which was MRI and ultrasonographic evaluated and histopathologicly confirmed
