Calcified Splenic Lesions: Pattern Recognition Approach on CT With Pathologic Correlation.

08:00 EDT 24th March 2020 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Calcified Splenic Lesions: Pattern Recognition Approach on CT With Pathologic Correlation."

Incidental splenic lesions, often found on CT images of the abdomen, may often be ignored or mischaracterized. Calcified splenic lesions are often presumed to be granulomas; however, understanding the broader differential diagnostic considerations can be useful. Determining the cause of splenic lesions is essential to guide appropriate management; the pattern of calcification together with other imaging and clinical findings can aid with differentiation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The analysis of a critical number of sensory stimuli or facts (the pattern) by physiological processes such as vision (PATTERN RECOGNITION, VISUAL), touch, or hearing.

The formation of dentin. Dentin first appears in the layer between the ameloblasts and odontoblasts and becomes calcified immediately. Formation progresses from the tip of the papilla over its slope to form a calcified cap becoming thicker by the apposition of new layers pulpward. A layer of uncalcified dentin intervenes between the calcified tissue and the odontoblast and its processes. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992)

Mental process to visually perceive a critical number of facts (the pattern), such as characters, shapes, displays, or designs.

Pathogens' molecules with specific sequence patterns that are recognized by PATTERN RECOGNITION RECEPTORS. They include microbial DNA, double-stranded RNA, surface glycoproteins, lipopolysaccharides, peptidoglycans, and lipoteichoic acid.

The spontaneous transplantation of splenic tissue to unusual sites after open splenic trauma, e.g., after automobile accidents, gunshot or stab wounds. The splenic pulp implants appear as red-blue nodules on the peritoneum, omentum, and mesentery, morphologically similar to multifocal pelvic endometriosis. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
