We used the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease formula to estimate the glomerular filtration rate in renal(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The accurate delineation of tumor recurrence presents a significant problem in neuro-oncology. Our aim was to improve the identification of brain tumor recurrence from chemoradiation injury by using CE-SWI, a technique that provides improved visualization of the heterogeneous patterns of brain tumor pathology, to guide the analysis of(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the presentation and factors affecting outcome over a 9-year period in 99 consecutive Saudi patients with biopsy proven lupus nephritis (LN), 35.5% of whom had nephrotic range proteinuria, 46.8% had estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) <60  ml/min/1.73  m(2) and 65.5% had histological class IV. The(More)
MR spectroscopy is used to provide in vivo biochemical information about cerebral metabolites. Magnetic field homogeneity secondary to anatomic interfaces, hemorrhage, or necrosis may lead to suboptimal MR spectroscopy. Susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) can identify field inhomogeneity and could be used to guide MR spectroscopy voxel placement, leading(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the influence of nonimmunologic factors on the outcome of extended criteria deceased donor (DD) kidney transplants. METHOD This is a retrospective study of DD transplantation carried out from January 1, 2003 to December 31, 2007, to investigate the impact on graft survival and function of donor renal function at retrieval, cold ischemia(More)
