Presentation Transcript

  1. Soft Tissue Calcifications

  2. Soft Tissue Calcification • Arterial: Arteriosclerosis or atherosclerosis, diabetes • Parasitic: Cysticercosis, Trichinosis • Collagenoses: Scleroderma, dermatomyositis • Metabolic: Hyperparathyroidism, gout • Traumatic: hematoma, tendonitis • Iatrogenic: Response to surgical insult or implanted devices - substances

  3. Aortic Aneurysm • Calcification of aortic wall • Calcification of mesenteric vessels • Calcification from atherosclerosis

  4. Aortic Aneurysm • Calcification of aortic wall • Lumen dilatation • Calcification from atherosclerosis

  5. Trichinosis • History of eating bear venison • Multiple elongated calcifications in muscle • Used to be problem with pork when pigs fed ‘swill’ (uncooked garbage)

  6. Supraspinatus Tendonitis • AP right shoulder • Calcification in the supraspinatus tendon adjacent to greater tuberosity (arrow) • Post-injury

  7. Gout • AP foot • Urate deposits (Tophi) within bone and soft tissues • Erosion medial head of 1st metatarsal and base of distal phalanx • Calcification of tophus noted in erosion

  8. Breast Implant • Calcification at fibrotic capsule (scarring) around breast implant.
