PURPOSE To describe the history, clinical findings, and possible etiologies of ophthalmic findings discovered in 7 astronauts after long-duration space flight, and document vision changes in approximately 300 additional astronauts. DESIGN Retrospective, observational examination of ophthalmic findings in 7 astronauts and analysis of postflight(More)
BACKGROUND Susac syndrome (SS) is a self-limited syndrome, presumably autoimmune, consisting of a clinical triad of encephalopathy, branch retinal artery occlusions, and hearing loss. All three elements of the triad may not be present or recognized, and MR imaging is often necessary to establish the diagnosis. OBJECTIVE To determine the spectrum of(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare and contrast 2 methods of quantitating papilledema, namely, optical coherence tomography (OCT) and Modified Frisén Scale (MFS). METHODS Digital optic disc photographs and OCT fast retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness, fast RNFL map, total retinal thickness, and fast disc images were obtained in 36 patients with papilledema.(More)
Episodic memory is compromised in amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI), but lesser deficits in other cognitive domains are also commonly observed and may be helpful in identifying this group. The relative difference in performance on lexical and semantic fluency tasks may be a sensitive and specific measure in aMCI and early Alzheimer's disease (AD).(More)
Campylobacter jejuni is one of the major causes of food poisoning in humans. C. jejuni is also widespread in food animals, and meat and meat products derived from food animals are the most common vector of bacterial transmission to humans. To determine the role of packing and storage conditions on the replication of C. jejuni on chicken, the virulent strain(More)
A literature review was performed by content experts in neuro-ophthalmology and neuroradiology using a systematic English-language Medline search (1994-2008) limited to articles with relevance to neuro-ophthalmic and orbital imaging. The information covered in this review includes: (i) the basic mechanics, indications and contraindications for cranial and(More)
OBJECTIVE To correlate the clinicopathologic and radiographic features characteristic of orbital solitary fibrous tumor (SFT). METHODS The diagnostic features and clinical outcome of seven adults with orbital SFT are retrospectively outlined. Orbital imaging was performed by ultrasonography, computed tomography, or magnetic resonance imaging. Some cases(More)
PURPOSE Obesity and weight gain are known risk factors for idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH; or pseudotumor cerebri). The authors examined profiles of body mass index (BMI) and patterns of weight gain associated with IIH. They also examined vision-specific health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in newly diagnosed IIH patients and explored the(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this paper is to study the clinical spectrum of pediatric optic neuritis. We evaluated the presenting features, neuroimaging findings, cerebrospinal fluid abnormalities, associated systemic disease, and visual outcome in patients with this condition. METHODS A retrospective analysis was performed on all patients who came to(More)
