82. Chronic Knee Pain

and there is clinical evidence or concern for lumbar spine pathology. CT Knee CT without intravenous (IV) contrast may be indicated to evaluate the patellofemoral anatomy in the setting of chronic knee pain related to repetitive patellofemoral subluxation or maltracking [15]. CT can also be used to evaluate trochlear morphology and the tibial tubercle-trochlear groove distance. CT with IV contrast is usually not indicated when initial radiograph is negative or demonstrates a joint effusion.

MRI without and with IV contrast is not usually indicated when initial radiograph is negative or demonstrates a joint effusion. However, contrast-enhanced images may be more accurate in diagnosing other causes of chronic knee pain, such as Hoffa’s disease, deep infrapatellar bursitis, patellofemoral friction syndrome, and adhesive capsulitis [15

, ligamentum flavum hypertrophy, spondylolisthesis, or spondylosis, which may compress the epidural venous plexus within tight epidural spaces. Moreover, patients, after various spine surgeries, may develop fibrous adhesions and scar tissue, thus further compromising the capacity of the epidural space and distorting the anatomy of the epidural vessels. The risk of bleeding is further increased in pain patients taking several concomitant medications with antiplatelet effects including NSAIDs, ASA (...) the risk of bleeding and neurological injury secondary to impairment of coagulation in the setting of implantable neurostimulation devices in the spine, brain, and periphery.

, demonstrating accuracies in the detection of rotator cuff and adjacent soft-tissue abnormalities equivalent to MRI [6]. US is usually well tolerated and, as with MRI, involves no ionizing radiation. Imaging in real time allows direct functional assessment of the shoulder during provocative maneuvers (ie, impingement) as well as providing guidance for a variety of interventions. As in other modalities, the upper extremity must be positioned to optimally visualize the anatomy of interest. Discussion (...) of neurogenic pain. US Shoulder Paralabral cysts that extend to the spinoglenoid notch, suprascapular notch, and quadrilateral space can be identified by US. Based on loss in muscle bulk and increased echogenicity due to replacement by fat, US can also evaluate associated loss of muscle bulk. Paralabral or ganglion cyst aspiration under US guidance can be attempted [92,93]. The suprascapular nerve may occasionally be visualized on US in the spinoglenoid notch adjacent to the suprascapular artery [94]. Bone

, called neurostimulation, may offer patients with cluster headaches an alternative form of pain relief. How It Works The Sphenopalatine Ganglion The sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) is a triangular collection of neurons located in the middle of the face. 5 Because the SPG plays a role in controlling blood flow and the activity of chemical messengers — neurotransmitters — that influence pain, researchers are interested in how stimulating or blocking nerve signals in the SPG can affect pain, including pain (...)

should be emphasized: 1. Because of the complex anatomic structures within the brain and brain stem and because the cranial nerves may take long, circuitous routes to their destinations, a detailed knowledge of cranial nerve anatomy is essential for proper clinical localization of potential lesions and for appropriate application of specific imaging protocols. 2. Because some individual nerve fibers, such as the autonomic nerves, may travel with several different cranial nerves from their nuclei (...) that predicting the prognosis is difficult [95]. CT CT provides useful information regarding temporal bone fractures and trauma, presurgical osseous anatomy, nerve involvement with inflammatory middle ear disease, foraminal expansion, patterns of bone erosion, and intrinsic bone tumor matrices [83,84,96-98]. In patients with risk for contrast allergy and contrast-induced nephropathy, noncontrast CT may be sufficient if patients cannot undergo MRI. A dedicated temporal bone CT with thin sections should

High-resolution (typically multidetector) CT of the wrist following contrast injection into one or more wrist compartments (CT arthrography) is a powerful tool for diagnosing intra-articular abnormalities [14,15]. The intraobserver agreement on CT arthrogram images is extremely high and better than that reported for MRI [14,16].

mesenteric venous anatomy [10]. Overview of Therapeutic Modalities Treatments for mesenteric ischemia attempt to reverse the underlying cause, with the goal of prevention of bowel infarction. Treatment choice depends on the underlying etiology of ischemia. For patients with mesenteric arterial occlusive disease there has been a shift away from surgical treatment (eg, embolectomy, endarterectomy, and arterial bypass) towards endovascular approaches including thrombolysis and clot retrieval in cases (...) been postulated to limit blood flow to the bowel, with resulting ischemic symptoms, or to irritate the celiac ganglion, which results in abdominal pain. Compression of the celiac artery may be a normal finding in asymptomatic patients and is well characterized [24]. Therefore, supportive treatment with analgesics and continued diagnostic evaluation for alternate causes of abdominal pain might be reasonable first steps in patients with suspected median arcuate ligament syndrome.
