how was your summer? My summer was great and I am ready to present some fresh cases!
Just to warm you up, here is a case recently shown to me in Hospital Dr Peset.
This is a 38 year old male with upper respiratory symptoms. Read more…
You did a great job with case 12. Here is our next case, to confirm or prove your diagnostic abilities.
This is a 53 year old woman that had a chest radiographic study for suspicion of respiratory infection.
Let us see what diagnostic possibilities you suggest.

This week I am hiking in the mountains, but I have managed to send you this case.
Do you know what type of tree is this?
Below you’ll find two radiographs belonging to a 38-year-old woman. Incidental finding.
This time I have the privilege to count with the help of Dr. Lucía Flors, and Dr. Jeff Kuni from the Department of Radiology, University of Missouri, Columbia.
Dr. Flors was a brilliant radiology resident not long ago at Hospital Universitario Dr. Peset.
Lucía and Jeff have lots of interesting cases and, to prove it, here is one of them.
These radiographs belong to a 65-year-old female with chest pain.
This is an unusual case from Hospital Universitario Dr. Peset. Valencia. I would just like to know how you approach a case with findings above and below the diaphragm.
The patient is a 25-year-old woman. Smoker for 10 years. She complains of fever and chest pain. She also had some vague epigastric discomfort.

Hello my Friends.
Today I am presenting you with a case from my good friend Dr. Ramiro Hernandez from Ann Arbor University, Michigan.
He is a well-known pediatric radiologist and, as me, likes to extract good and useful information from plain films.
These radiographs belong to a one-year old child with suspected respiratory infection.
This is a guest article from MED-EL, the innovation leader in hearing implants.
You don’t want to have to turn a patient away from an MRI scan. But active medical implants, such as pacemakers or cochlear implants, can make MRI scans challenging.
Many implants are associated with risks during MRI, even if they are “MR Conditional”. This can be especially challenging in real-world settings, because “MR Conditional” only means that there are conditions and restrictions, without letting you know how to proceed or how likely it is that your patient will have a safe, comfortable MRI scan.
However, it’s important to understand that not all implants are created equal—especially when it comes to MRI safety.
Today, we’re going to take an in-depth look at why a design issue causes complications with certain cochlear implants. Then we’ll look at why magnet technology makes all the difference with a whole range of hearing implants designed specifically for MRI safety.
this is a case of a patient with chronic disease.
I am showing you two CT images and, as usual, hope to read your comments.
Good day colleagues,
This case was brought to me by Drs María Vega, Magdalena Graells and Luis Garcia (Hospital Universitario Dr Peset, Valencia; all pictured above in the case cover) and opens a new look to my blog.
This is a 35-year-old man from Pakistan that complains of long standing back pain.
