To determine the differences in the prediction of spontaneous passage between axial and coronal plane measurements; i.e., the relationship between the time to stone passage and stone size, chi-square or two-tailed Fisher's exact tests were used.
accept that less than or equal to 20 degrees on the coronal plane and less than 30 degrees on the sagittal plane are appropriate.16 In our study, two patients had 10 degrees of angulation on the coronal plane, and one patient had more than 10 degrees of angulation on the coronal and sagittal planes.
On average, the SAF is located 8 mm lateral to the acetabular notch in the coronal plane. Though the overlying articular cartilage is intact, its location at the weightbearing portion of the acetabulum poses a risk for this variant to be incorrectly described as an osteochondral or chondral defect of the acetabular cartilage.
The distances between the scutum and the long process of the incus and between the head of malleus and the medial attic wall (Figure 1e and 1f, respectively) were also measured in the coronal plane. The radiologists made quantitative measurements for either the diseased or healthy ears and did not communicate while taking the measurements.
When using the recommended location as the entry point for the IM rod, the mean potential error differed significantly from the femoral trochlear groove (the potential error of IM in males in coronal plane: 0.93[degrees] [+ or -] 0.24[degrees] vs.
Because the bulk of the intracranial venous flow is in the anteroposterior direction, section acquisition in the coronal plane 2D TOF MRV allows improved visualisation of most of the cerebral venous sinuses.9 In this study, flow gaps were observed in 22(10.78%) patients and were mostly found in posterior part of superior sagittal sinus and near torcularherophili (Table-1).
(A) Magnetic resonance urography (MRU) in coronal plane revealing left renal remnant; (B) MRU in coronal plane revealing left ectopic ureter inserting into vaginal wall.
(21) When coronal plane stability of the limb within the socket is poor, TF prosthesis users often increase lateral trunk displacement and step width.
In this study MRI protocols were; pre-contrast series; oblique coronal plane T1A turbo spin eko (TSE) [the echo time/the repetition time (TE/TR): 10/639] and STIR (TE/TR: 255/4000); oblique transverse plane T1A TSE (TE/TR: 11/482), T2A fat-suppressed TSE (TE/TR: 92/4560) slices, post-contrast (0.1 mmol/kg gadolinium bolus i.v.
(a) Coronal plane: the coronal plane consists of the glenoid cavity centroid, the trigonum spinae, and the inferior angle.
