Magnetic resonance imaging requested for a potentially serious indication, provided a unique opportunity to explore the intervillous circulation of placentas from pregnancies complicated by Intra Uterine Growth Restriction (IUGR) and to compare them to normal cases. This allowed an innovative characterization of in vivo utero-placental blood flow,(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively determine mural perfusion dynamics in patients with untreated celiac disease by using dynamic contrast material-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and to compare these dynamics with those in a control population and in patients with celiac disease treated with a gluten-free diet. MATERIALS AND METHODS Institutional review(More)
AIM The diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome (ACS), non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction and unstable angina in the emergency department (ED) remains a challenge. The aim of our study was to investigate quality and the diagnostic accuracy of 16-MDCT coronary angiography, detecting coronary artery lesions in patients with suspected ACS presented in ED. (More)
Alterations of the brain microstructure and metabolism have been identified in patients with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1). In this study, we analyzed the basal ganglia of NF1 subjects without cognitive delay throughout a combined approach with magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) in order to better define the metabolic(More)
BACKGROUND Olfactory dysfunction is present since the earliest stage of Alzheimer's disease (AD). In AD patients, the olfactory impairment has been correlated with atrophy of some structures of the olfactory system, but the role of the olfactory bulb remains unclear. OBJECTIVE The aim of our work is to test if patients suffering from AD exhibit a(More)
