Caceres’ Corner Case 134 (Update: Solution)

ESR_2016_Blog-CaceresCorner-134

Dear Friends,

April is the cruelest month. Dr. Pepe has eloped with Miss Piggy and has not prepared any Diploma cases. To cover for him I have selected five cases to be shown during April. Paraphrasing the title of a film by Jack Nicholson, I am calling them “Five easy pieces”. All of them show subtle findings, easily seen if you look carefully.

The first case is a PA radiograph of a 53-year-old woman, preo-op for bariatric surgery. Check the image below, leave me your thoughts in the comments section, and come back on Friday for the answer.

The best unused cases submitted for the popular “Know Your Calcifications” interlude at ECR 2016

ECR2016_banner_blog-focus

Dear Friends,

Over the last couple of years, one of the last sessions at the ECR has always covered 20 interesting cases from various subspecialties, which the audience are asked to solve in an interactive way to broaden and update their knowledge.

In between, the very best submissions from the global radiological community have been presented in an interlude lecture. The best submission has always been awarded with a prize and a certificate.

Due to time limits, only a small number of submitted cases can actually be shown onsite, but the session’s rising popularity has resulted in increasing numbers of submissions of excellent quality. This is why we would like to give our submitters the opportunity to reach a broader audience by posting the best cases here on the ESR Blog.
