To investigate the role of temporal processing in language lateralization, we monitored asymmetry of cerebral activation in human volunteers using positron emission tomography (PET). Subjects were scanned during passive auditory stimulation with nonverbal sounds containing rapid (40 msec) or extended (200 msec) frequency transitions. Bilateral symmetric(More)
To assess the efficacy of fetal mesencephalic grafts in Parkinson's disease, it is important to know if the grafted cells survive and are functional. Positron emission tomography (PET) and [18F]fluorodopa ([18F]dopa) have been used to demonstrate the survival of the grafted cells, but the relationship of [18F]dopa uptake changes in the grafted striatum to(More)
BACKGROUND Neurobehavioral disorders after severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) are poorly correlated with focal lesions detected by structural neuroimaging techniques such as CT scan or MRI. OBJECTIVE To explore the relationships between regional cerebral glucose metabolism at rest, as measured by PET, and neurobehavioral status after severe TBI at the(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the clinical correlates of supratentorial ventricular dilations and of corpus callosal atrophy at the subacute stage after a severe closed-head injury (CHI). Thirty-three CHI patients underwent MRI 2 months or more after injury. Morphometric measures were compared to clinical data (coma score, coma duration and(More)
Skeletal muscle radio-density (SMD) measures muscle radiation attenuation (in Hounsfield Units, HU) on computed tomography (CT) scans. Low SMD is prognostic of poor survival in melanoma, however its significance is unknown for hematologic malignancies. We performed a single institution, retrospective review of all follicular lymphoma (FL) patients who(More)
BACKGROUND While much cancer research focuses on tumours and their microenvironment, malignancies cause widespread physiologic changes. Cancer and treatment-related sarcopenia, measured with quantitative imaging or as a decrease in overall body mass, are indicative of poor prognosis in elderly diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) patients, skeletal muscle(More)
