  • tuberculosis
  • Notable extrapulmonary infection sites include the pleura (in tuberculous pleurisy), the central nervous system (in tuberculous meningitis), the lymphatic system (in scrofula of the neck), the genitourinary system (in urogenital tuberculosis), and the bones and joints (in Pott disease of the spine), among others. (wikipedia.org)
  • Like tuberculosis, Crohn‟s disease also can result in granulomatous peritonitis13. (wikipedia.org)
  • Many non-neoplastic and neoplastic conditions may mimic PC, such as tuberculosis, splenosis implant, peritoneal lymphomatosis, pseudomyxoma peritonei and primary peritoneal mesothelioma. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other organs involved in tuberculosis with advanced HIV disease include central nervous system, soft tissue, bone marrow, liver and other viscera. (scielo.br)
  • Central nervous system tuberculosis occurs in 5%-20% of HIV-infected patients with tuberculosis and is primarily due to reactivation of latent infection or as a complication of disseminated disease. (scielo.br)
  • atelectasis
  • There is new bilateral lower lobe airspace disease with air bronchograms, likely secondary to compressive atelectasis, however bilateral lobar pneumonia cannot be excluded. (academy.sk)
  • lung
  • The coronal view also can be used to inspect the inferior and superior surfaces of the liver and the lung bases for the presence of metastases and other disease processes (Figure 3). (appliedradiology.com)
  • Helsinki guidelines for the diagnosis of asbestos-related disorders defines asbestosis as diffuse interstitial fibrosis of the lung as a consequence of exposure to asbestos dust. (medscape.com)
  • The diagnostic approach to asbestos-related intrathoracic disease is different from that of other diffuse lung diseases because of the medicolegal implications. (medscape.com)
  • High-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) scanning is playing an increasingly important role in the diagnosis of diffuse interstitial lung disease. (medscape.com)
  • detection
  • The relatively specific morphologic and signal-intensity features on fat-saturation images allow for the detection of pancreatic disease processes such aschronic pancreatitis and ductal adenocarcinoma. (appliedradiology.com)
  • Computed Tomography
  • Computed tomography (CT) is particularly important for detailed preoperative assessment and evaluation of the radiological Peritoneal Cancer Index (PCI). (wikipedia.org)
  • Multidetector Computed Tomography (MDCT) remains the modality of choice for primary staging, especially in patients with poor compliance for diagnostic examinations, providing a great deal of information about a large volume of tissue and permitting assessment of metastatic extraperitoneal disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • liver
  • C. Cystic peritoneal deposits (Curved arrow), scalloping the liver surface, mimicking liver cysts in case of mucinous cystadenocarcinoma ovary in a 52 year old female patient. (wikipedia.org)
  • diagnosis
  • Therefore, imaging plays a pivotal role in the diagnosis, staging, response assessment, and surveillance of asbestos-related disease. (medscape.com)
  • Although diagnosis and management have improved, the incidence of this disease has continued to climb since the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) started collecting data in 1970. (medscape.com)
  • parenchymal
  • In cases of iron storage disease, the hepatic parenchymal signal intensity decreases on the image with the longer echo time due to the continued decay of transverse magnetization 7 (Figure 5). (appliedradiology.com)
  • Hepatic
  • 3. There is focal circumferential colonic wall thickening and luminal narrowing just below the hepatic flexure with minimal pericolonic fat stranding. (academy.sk)
