The role of diagnostic imaging modalities in pancreatic inflammatory diseases is to assess gland damage and peripancreatic tissue involvement. The artifacts related to breathing and to peristaltic movements can be partially resolved with the optimization of acquisition parameters, which allows MRI to be suggested for the assessment of pancreatic(More)
The use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to study the liver is currently on the increase. Our study was aimed at evaluating MR diagnostic reliability in the detection and staging of gallbladder carcinomas. Thirty-one patients with gallbladder carcinoma were studied. MRI was performed with a 0.5 T superconductive magnet, using spin-echo (SE) T1- and(More)
Until few years ago, MR assessment of pancreatic carcinoma was thought to be feasible only with high-strength equipment, but today also low- and midfield units allow pancreatic lesion detection, thanks to parameter optimization. The authors retrospectively analyzed the MR findings of 57 patients examined with a midfield MR unit; all the patients had(More)
We selected 15 patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and 5 with secondary myocardial hypertrophy (SMH). All patients were examined by means of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and echocardiography. The MR study was performed with gated T1- and T2-weighted spin echo sequences and cine MRI. We correlated echocardiographic and MRI measurements and(More)
