Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is a leading cause of disability in adults, many of whom report a distressing combination of physical, emotional and cognitive symptoms, collectively known as post-concussion syndrome, that persist after the injury. Significant developments in magnetic resonance diffusion imaging, involving voxel-based quantitative(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Intravascular angioplasty and stenting of intracranial arterial stenosis provided controversial results. Besides the expertise of the practitioners, the selection of the patients remains challenging. BOLD MRI of the cerebral vasoreactivity (BOLD MRI CVR) to hypercapnia provides reproducible maps of the entire brain of the vascular(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the incidence of dislocation of precurved versus straight flexible cochlear implant electrode arrays using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) image analyses. STUDY DESIGN Consecutive nonrandomized case-comparison study. SETTINGS Tertiary referral center. PATIENTS Analyses of patients' CBCT images after cochlear implant surgery.(More)
Multiparametric quantitative blood oxygenation level dependent (mqBOLD) magnetic resonance Imaging (MRI) approach allows mapping tissular oxygen saturation (StO2 ) and cerebral metabolic rate of oxygen (CMRO2 ). To identify hemodynamic alteration related to severe intracranial arterial stenosis (SIAS), functional MRI of cerebrovascular reserve (CVR BOLD(More)
PURPOSE Exploration of the human retina has never been described with MRI tractography, supposedly because of ocular movement-related artifacts and imaging distortions with EPI diffusion acquisition. In this work, we used track-weighting imaging to assess retinal fascicles. Diffusion acquisition parameters influence was studied and the relationship between(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether magnetic resonance (MR) tractography of facial nerve (VIIn) is useful to detect perineural invasion in case of parotid cancers. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty patients, aged 18 or over, were enrolled in this prospective study between December 2013 and March 2016 (IRB 5891), with a diagnosis of parotid tumors (15 malignant, 15(More)
INTRODUCTION Recently, the semi-quantitative ratio grading for endolymphatic hydrops (EH) was found as none specific of MD because all healthy subjects referred with at least one hydrops location with this grading method and 3D-FLAIR sequence. The objectives of this study were to assess the EH prevalence in MD using both the semi-quantitative ratio method(More)
UNLABELLED Hearing loss is a common functional disorder after trauma, and radiologists should be aware of the ossicular, labyrinthine or brain lesions that may be responsible. After a trauma, use of a systematic approach to explore the main functional components of auditory pathways is essential. Conductive hearing loss is caused by the disruption of the(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The assessment of cerebrovascular reactivity (CVR) has shown promising results for its use in medical diagnosis and prognosis, especially in patients suffering from severe intracranial arterial stenosis. However, its quantification remains uncertain because of a large variability inherent in brain anatomy and in methodological(More)
Radiotherapy and chemotherapy may induce neurological toxicities with different appearances on CT and MRI scans. While optimized radiotherapy techniques have reduced some complications, new unwanted effects have occurred on account of therapeutic protocols involving the simultaneous use of radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Advances in radio-surgery, innovative(More)
