Advanced endoscopic interventions on the pancreas and pancreatic ductal system: a primer for radiologists

In recent years, technological advancements including endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guidance and availability of specifically designed stents further expanded the indications and possibilities of interventional endoscopy. Although technically demanding and associated with non-negligible morbidity, advanced pancreatic endoscopic techniques now provide an effective minimally invasive...

Imaging the operated colon using water-enema multidetector CT, with emphasis on surgical anastomoses

Tonolini 2 University Hospital , Via G.B. Grassi 74, 20157 Milan , Italy Water-enema multidetector CT (WE-MDCT) provides a detailed multiplanar visualisation of mural, intra- and extraluminal abnormalities

Non-perforated peptic ulcer disease: multidetector CT findings, complications, and differential diagnosis

Despite availability of effective therapies, peptic ulcer disease (PUD) remains a major global disease, resulting from a combination of persistent Helicobacter pylori infection and widespread use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Albeit endoscopy definitely represents the mainstay diagnostic technique, patients presenting to emergency departments with unexplained abdominal...

Cross-sectional imaging of complicated urinary infections affecting the lower tract and male genital organs

Complicated urinary tract infections (C-UTIs) are those associated with structural or functional genitourinary abnormalities or with conditions that impair the host defence mechanisms, leading to an increased risk of acquiring infection or failing therapy. C-UTIs occur in patients with risk factors such as neurogenic dysfunction, bladder outlet obstruction, obstructive uropathy...

Multidetector CT of expected findings and early postoperative complications after current techniques for ventral hernia repair

Tonolini 1 Department of Radiology, BLuigi Sacco 2 University Hospital , Via G.B. Grassi 74, 20157 Milan , Italy Current techniques for ventral hernia repair (VHR) rely on prosthetic mesh implantation and

Cross-sectional imaging of common and unusual complications after endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is currently a primarily therapeutic procedure that is extensively employed to treat several biliopancreatic disorders. Although widely considered a safe procedure, ERCP is associated with a non-negligible morbidity and occasional mortality. Due to the number and complexity of operative ERCPs performed, radiologists are...

Pictorial review of normal postoperative cross-sectional imaging findings and infectious complications following laparoscopic appendectomy

Massimo Tonolini Federica Villa Sonia Ippolito Marina Petull Roberto Bianco Laparoscopic appendectomy is increasingly accepted as the preferred surgical treatment for acute appendicitis and

Multidetector CT imaging of complications after laparoscopic nephron-sparing surgery

Purpose Laparoscopic nephron-sparing surgery (L-NSS) is increasingly performed to treat localised renal lesions. However, the associated morbidity is non-negligible, with a rate of major complications approaching 10 %. Methods and Results This paper provides an overview of indications, surgical techniques and results of L-NSS; explains the incidence, risk factors and...

Cross-sectional imaging of iatrogenic complications after extracorporeal and endourological treatment of urolithiasis

Massimo Tonolini Federica Villa Sonia Ippolito Alessandra Pagani Roberto Bianco Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) and ureteroscopy (URS) currently

Multidetector CT imaging of post-robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy complications

Background Robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALRP) is currently accepted as the preferred minimally invasive surgical treatment for localised prostate cancer, with optimal oncologic and functional results. Despite growing surgical experience, reduced postoperative morbidity and hospital stays, RALRP-related complications may occur, which are severe in 5–7 % of...

MRI and CT of anal carcinoma: a pictorial review

Massimo Tonolini Roberto Bianco Background Squamocellular anal carcinoma is increasingly diagnosed in patients with risk factors. Methods State-of-the-art imaging with magnetic resonance imaging

Multidetector CT cystography for imaging colovesical fistulas and iatrogenic bladder leaks

Multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) cystography currently represents the modality of choice to image the urinary bladder in traumatized patients. In this review we present our experience with MDCT cystography applications outside the trauma setting, particularly for diagnosing bladder fistulas and leaks. A detailed explanation is provided concerning exam preparation...
