This is the 48th installment of a series that will highlight one case per publication issue from the bank of cases available online as a part of the American Society of Emergency Radiology (ASER) educational resources. Our goal is to generate more interest in and use of our online materials. To view more cases online, please visit the ASER Core Curriculum and Recommendations for study online at http://www.aseronline.org/curriculum/toc.htm .

Intussusception is a relatively common condition seen in children. In comparison, adult intussusception is rare and is often secondary to inflammatory diseases, benign or malignant tumors and motility...
Colonic lipomas are uncommon benign submucosal adipose tumorsthat are usually asymptomatic. Large lipomas can cause symptoms require treatment in principle. We report 1 case of giant colonic lipoma re...
There have been no large-scale studies to compare pedunculated vs non-pedunculated T1 colorectal tumors; risk stratification for adverse events, such as metastasis to lymph nodes, is based only on his...
Intestinal duplication, a congenital malformation, is considered a rare condition, particularly in adults. Although it affects young children, a minority of patients remains asymptomatic until adultho...
Intraosseous lipomas occurring within the skull is rare. Currently, the known locations include frontal bone, parietal bone, temporal bone and ethmoid bone. Thus far, we have found only 12 cases of li...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether collagenase is effective in reducing the surface area of a subcutaneous benign lipoma.
To analyse the efficacy and safety of two standard methods of endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) for large non-pedunculated colorectal polyps, We will compare submucosal injection-assisted...
Intussusception is one of the most frequent causes of acute bowel and second most common cause of acute abdominal pain in pediatric age .95 % of cases are idiopathic, the rest are either d...
Interval colon cancers are an important clinical issue. Literature dealing with technics and quality of polypectomy is scarce. A recent paper from Pohl et al focused on non-pedunculated po...
'Spinal lipoma' is a condition, present from before birth, in which fatty tissue (lipoma) is attached to the lower end of the spinal cord, tethering it within the vertebral canal. The cord...
The field which deals with illustrative clarification of biomedical concepts, as in the use of diagrams and drawings. The illustration may be produced by hand, photography, computer, or other electronic or mechanical methods.
Inflammation of the COLONIC DIVERTICULA, generally with abscess formation and subsequent perforation.
Chronic or recurrent colonic disorders without an identifiable structural or biochemical explanation. The widely recognized IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME falls into this category.
A pathological condition characterized by the presence of a number of COLONIC DIVERTICULA in the COLON. Its pathogenesis is multifactorial, including colon aging, motor dysfunction, increases in intraluminal pressure, and lack of dietary fibers.
Functional obstruction of the COLON leading to MEGACOLON in the absence of obvious COLONIC DISEASES or mechanical obstruction. When this condition is acquired, acute, and coexisting with another medical condition (trauma, surgery, serious injuries or illness, or medication), it is called Ogilvie's syndrome.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
