OBJECTIVE This study aims to evaluate the diagnostic precision of endoanal magnetic resonance imaging in identifying anal sphincter injury and/or atrophy when compared with either endoanal ultrasound or surgical diagnosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Quantitative meta-analysis was performed on nine studies, comparing endoanal MRI with endoanal ultrasound or(More)
Time course changes in plasma creatine kinase activity during repetitive physical work were studied. Study groups consisted of a control group who performed sedentary administrative work and an experimental group who performed repetitive physical work in a biscuit factory. Venous blood samples were collected on a Monday prior to work and following work on(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess the role of magnetic resonance venography (MRV) with time-resolved imaging of contrast kinetics (TRICKS) in dynamically evaluating ovarian vein dilation, reflux and direction of flow in patients with suspected pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS). The hypotheses tested were: (i) That conspicuity scores of the ovarian(More)
Aim : To evaluate diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) for detection of regional nodal metastases in primary head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Materials and methods : Ten patients with HNSCC underwent an MRI prior to surgery. The scan protocol consisted of plain transverse T1-and T2-weighted turbo spin echo (TSE) sequences and(More)
