INTRODUCTION Non-echo-planar imaging (EPI) MRI has been recently introduced to improve the detection of small-sized cholesteatoma and decrease different artefacts occurring in the EPI-diffusion-weighted (DW) technique. This technique is also time saving in comparison to delayed post-contrast imaging. We prospectively assessed the diagnostic accuracy of MRI(More)
Fibroids are the most common benign tumors of the uterus during female reproductive age. Uterine artery embolization (UAE) using embolic particles (PVA, Gelfoam) to occlude the uterine arteries, have been reported as a relatively safe, effective, and durable nonsurgical alternative to hysterectomy in diminishing fibroid-related symptoms. To block the(More)
