Solution to Picture of the week #5, and this week’s image. October 16, 2007

Posted by tomography in Nuclear Medicine, Picture of the week.

You guys were right, the answer to last week’s image was bullous lung disease due to emphysema. The x-ray shows wide intercostal spaces and the fine outline of the bullas. The CT scan comfirms the presence of the bullas, and the absence of lung tissue and bloodvessels in them. Here is the link to this image, where you can read more about this disease.


Also check out this wonderful picture on the different types of emphysema. This would have made it so much easier for us to understand them when we were cramming the list, don’t you think so? Aah, the good times we shared in Pathology! 🙂


And here is this week’s image. The questions:

  • What kind of technique was used to obtain it?
  • What is not physiological in this case?

Az egyik vese – szemből nézve a jobb – felveszi, majd kiválasztja az izotópos anyagot, majd az izotópos vizelet ki is ürül: megjelenik az ureterben, majd a hlyagban. A másik vese kisebb mértékben veszi fel az anyagot, de ki nem választja. Azon oldali ureter nem látszik. – egyébként nem radiológus vagyok.
