Carotid body tumor (CBT) is the most common of the head and neck paragangliomas (PGLs). Conversely, synovial sarcomas are usually located around knee and ankle joint and rare variants occur in the oral cavity. A 68-year-old man presented with a left voluminous painless cervical mass. The diagnosis of CBT of type III Shamblin was suspected. The cervical mass was removed en bloc. Unexpectedly, pathologic examination showed monophasic synovial sarcoma. Excision of PGLs remains the therapy of choice, especially to make a correct histologic diagnosis. © 2014 by Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. Source

The broad availability of cheap three-dimensional (3D) printing equipment has raised the need for a thorough analysis on its effects on clinical accuracy. Our aim is to determine whether the accuracy of 3D printing process is affected by the use of a low-budget workflow based on open source software and consumer’s commercially available 3D printers. A group of test objects was scanned with a 64-slice computed tomography (CT) in order to build their 3D copies. CT datasets were elaborated using a software chain based on three free and open source software. Objects were printed out with a commercially available 3D printer. Both the 3D copies and the test objects were measured using a digital professional caliper. Overall, the objects’ mean absolute difference between test objects and 3D copies is 0.23 mm and the mean relative difference amounts to 0.55 %. Our results demonstrate that the accuracy of 3D printing process remains high despite the use of a low-budget workflow. © 2015, Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine. Source
