In the two parts of this prospective study, first the ultrasound anatomy of this tendon was correlated with the anatomic appearance on fresh frozen cadavers. Then, the US results were correlated with the final patients’ outcome. The impact of this study was that it was the first publication in which the sensitivity (72 %) and

The Achilles tendon is prone to more or less severe biomechanical stress, so signs of overuse or injury dominate in the majority of diseases. In a retrospective study the different entities of this tendon and their imaging appearance were reviewed and classified. Looking back from today’s viewpoint, the clinical

Arthritis Rheum 2003;48:325-333. The grading of color Doppler signals for the quantification of arthritis has been difficult because of the lack of standardized investigation techniques. In this study a simple three-level grading system was developed. Despite several slight modifications in subsequent publications, its p

Ann Rheum Dis 2003;62:579-582. Computer-assisted diagnosis of X-ray images has been developed for the automatic detection of breast cancer and lung metastasis in the eighties. The application of this technique on the quantification of musculoskeletal diseases is much more complex and s

In primary malignant bone tumors, one of the main parameters of patients’ survival is the time gap between the first onset of symptoms and the initiation of proper treatment. In this study, for the first time clear statistical analysis were performed to find the reasons for delays in identifying patients with suspected

Radiology 2007;245:855-862. The experiments performed in this study base on the results of the manuscript Wick M et al. in 2003. Measuring of the radiological joint space width is a difficult task and with the software design presented here it was for the first time possible to measure the distance between

The severity of degenerative tendon disease is an ongoing matter of discussion. In this review, a systematic grading system was proposed with clear-defined cut-off levels between normal structure, degeneration, and rupture. Looking back from today’s viewpoint, the system is still applicable in clinical practice.

Using the standards of evidence-based medicine in radiology is difficult because of the short renewal cylces in imaging technologies. In this review, criteria for the standardisation of referring patients to imaging investigations were collected and categorized.

Imaging findings of arthritis have been describe with flowery phrases dating from three to seven decades ago and mainly referring to the appearance of arthritic destruction on X-rays. In this review, a new categorisation of findings in arthritis was performed. It refers to the anatomy of joints and to the typical di

10. Kainberger F, Kletter K: [Diagnostic imaging in pregraduate integrated curricula]. Rofo 2007;179:1137-1144. For the first time, a concept for designing a radiology course in undergraduate curricula was developed and implemented in the medical curriculum Vienna. Students get in touch with radiology and nuclear medicine at the beginning of the first year and are in continous contact until the end of the sixth year. All imaging-related sessions are organized in two modules (each in the first an

Grand rounds are a well-established teaching format in the postgraduate curricula of residencies in the disciplines of surgery, gynecology & obstretrics, family medicine, and others. At the Medical University of Vienna a new type of this teaching format was developed for the fifth and sixth years.

Eur J Radiol 2009 To evaluate the new undergraduate teaching format of diagnostic grand rounds, a systematic evaluation was performed by using the method of the “Diagnostic Thinking Inventory (DTI)”. Results showed that diagnostic grand rounds are an effective way of successfully improving students’ diagnostic reasoning.
