PURPOSE Our goal was to use functional MRI (fMRI) to measure brain activation in response to imagination of odors in humans. METHOD fMR brain scans were obtained in 21 normal subjects (9 men, 12 women) using multislice FLASH MRI in response to imagination of odors of banana and peppermint and to the actual smells of the corresponding odors of amyl acetate(More)
PURPOSE Our goal was to use functional MRI (fMRI) to measure brain activation in response to olfactory stimuli. METHOD fMRI brain scans were obtained in 17 normal subjects (9 men, 8 women) using-multislice FLASH MRI in response to three olfactory stimuli (pyridine, menthone, amyl acetate) in three coronal brain sections selected from anterior to posterior(More)
PURPOSE Our goal was to demonstrate that medical therapy in patients with smell loss (hyposmia) that restored olfactory function toward or to normal could be verified and quantitated by functional MRI (fMRI) of brain and that visual representation of these changes could be used to identify these patients. METHOD Multislice FLASH MR or echo planar MR brain(More)
PURPOSE Our goal was to use functional MRI (fMRI) to develop an objective, noninvasive technique by which patients with smell loss can be identified, their abnormalities quantitated, their results compared with findings in normal subjects, and visual representation of their CNS pathology obtained. METHOD Functional MR brain scans were obtained in eight(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM The international governing body for competitive rowing recently mandated the inclusion of 12-lead ECG during preparticipation screening. We therefore sought to describe normative ECG characteristics and to examine the prevalence of abnormal ECG findings as defined by contemporary athlete ECG interpretation criteria among competitive rowers.(More)
