OBJECTIVE We undertook this study to document the MR appearances of evolving or resolving infectious spondylitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective review was carried out of all patients with infectious spondylitis who had undergone MR imaging from 1991-1993 at Boston University Hospital and Boston City Hospital Imaging Foundation. The study(More)
MELAS (mitochondrial myopathy, encephalopathy, lactic acidosis, and stroke) syndrome was first described in 1984 by Pavlakis et al. [1] after reporting three cases of their own and identifying eight others in the literature. Although MELAS syndrome shares some similarities with Kearns-Sayre syndrome and MERRF (myoclonus epilepsy and ragged-red fibers)(More)
Cavernous hemangiomas involving the dura are relatively uncommon lesions . We report a case of a cavernous hemangioma with features of sinus pericranii with venous lakes that involved the dura as well as calvarium. Associated with it were radiologic bone changes atypical for hemangioma. In presenting our case, we correlate the computed tomographic (CT)(More)
Radiotracer scintigraphy has been commonly used in this country to confirm and document the clinical diagnosis of brain death. Whether the presence of radiotracer activity in the region of sagittal venous sinus (SVS) represents actual blood flow to the brain in the absence of demonstrable cerebral arterial flow remains a controversial issue. Our(More)
OBJECTIVE Two-dimensional (2D) time-of-flight (TOF) MR angiography has been the standard technique for evaluating arteries of the lower extremity. However, this technique is limited by artifacts resulting from vessel pulsation, as well as by relatively poor vessel-to-background contrast. The purpose of this study was to evaluate two cardiac-gated inflow(More)
Radionuclide scintigraphy can give a specific diagnosis when a hypervascular "cold" defect on colloid scans "fills in" with gallium scanning. The majority of hepatocellular carcinomas will also accumulate hepatobiliary agents especially in delayed images. Magnetic resonance imaging is superior to other modalities in providing anatomic detail, such as(More)
BACKGROUND Exercise programmes that can demonstrate evidence of long-lasting clinical effectiveness are needed for people with multiple sclerosis (PwMS). OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to assess the effects of a practically implemented exercise programme on self-directed exercise behaviour and important health outcomes in PwMS to nine months of(More)
Because of a family history of neurologic problems and the documentation of three vascular lesions in one patient, we evaluated 18 members representing three family generations with magnetic resonance imaging. Of these, eight were normal, two had abnormalities probably not related to arteriovenous malformation, one scan was suboptimal, and the remaining(More)
