PURPOSE To propose a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) quality assurance procedure that can be used for multicenter comparison of different MR scanners for quantitative diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI). MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-six centers (35 MR scanners with field strengths: 1T, 1.5T, and 3T) were enrolled in the study. Two different DWI acquisition(More)
Leukoencephalopathy with calcifications and cysts (LCC) is an uncommon condition of unknown etiology occurring in children and adults. Pathological findings include obliterative hyalinosis of the small vessels, myelin loss, intense gliosis, Rosenthal fiber formation, microcalcifications, and hemosiderin deposits. Herein we report a 55-year-old man with LCC(More)
In neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), Central Precocious Puberty (CPP) occurs almost invariably in association with optic pathway tumors, usually pilo-cytic astrocytoma. 1 However, at times the aetiology remains undefined. 2 On the other hand, in the general population CPP develops due to an underlying hy-pothalamic hamartoma in up to 10% of patients. 3 To the(More)
The aim of the work relies on the adjustment of scanning parameters, kV and mAs, in multislice computed tomography (MSCT) to reduce paediatric patient dose whilst keeping the same reference image quality. Only abdomen examinations are employed in this study. The measurement of noise in a region of interest (ROI) inside the liver in a reference adult man has(More)
In the field of phytopathology and mycology a few countries have come to be associated with the names of eminent individuals who towered above the rest, and whose scientific contributions were more than merely parochial. Such men were usually pioneers in these fields in their own countries; more than that, however, their interest and knowledge always(More)
The author follows the formation, the resting features and the further development of the peculiar hyphal bodies ofDelacroixia coronata. By the microscopical examination of colonies grown in Couch medium on cover-slips, he distinguishes various schemes of development and septation in the hyphal bodies recorded above and, after having mentioned the(More)
