US 2 = crossed sectionnal scan over aorta.
US 3 = longitudinal  scan over spine.
US 4 = longitudinal  scan at  pelvis.





MSCT of  abdomen with CE:





CT 1 = sagital scan of  cystic mass  retroperitoneum.
CT 2 = frontal scan  of this mass  is cystic homogeneous.
CT 3 = frontal view of  this mass  and  gastrointestinal mass arround.
CT 4 =  aorta  no deplacement.       


Normal blood test and  all biocancer markers.

CASE 446: KILT SYNDROME, Dr PHAN THANH HẢI, Dr LÊ TỰ PHÚC, MEDIC MEDICAL CENTER, HCMC, VIETNAM



Man 35 yo,  hematuria repeated  many times with  many  dilated subcutaneous veins on the abdomen wall [photo].


US of  kidneys   showed  righ and left kidney looked like hydronephrosis. But cannot detected the cause ( US 1, US 2)   US 3  =  CDI of  renal artery;  US 4 = spectral Doppler of pyramid arteries; US 5 = varicosis in urinary bladder wall.






CT of kidney without CE ( CT 1)=   HU of pelvis kidney  = 8 UI
CT 2  with CE ,  CT 3: secretion phase; CT 4= small ureter on R and L sides.







 MRI 1, MRI 2= kidney non CE   showed pelvis kidneys dilated and fluid collection around  2 kidneys.



Ultrasound of the leg = dilated chronic  deep vein thrombosis.

MSCT with CE detected this tumor in  connecting with  the liver by a long peduncule ( CT 1,sagital view) and in  frontal view, this mass is  nearby the  ligamentum falciformis (CT2).




CT 3: cross sectionnal scan of  tumor = well contrasted enhancement.
CT 4: vascular supplying for this tumor is a branch from  left gastric artery and  another one from liver.
