Medical imaging is commonly used to diagnose many emergent conditions, as well as plan treatment. Digital images can be reviewed on almost any computing platform. Modern mobile phones and handheld devices are portable computing platforms with robust software programming interfaces, powerful processors, and high-resolution displays. OsiriX mobile, a new(More)
The question we address here is whether the invasive presurgical brain mapping approaches of direct cortical stimulation and of the Wada procedure can be replaced by noninvasive functional neuroimaging methods (functional magnetic resonance imaging [fMRI], magnetoencephalography [MEG], transcranial magnetic stimulation and [TMS]). First, we outline the(More)
Advances in handheld computing now allow review of DICOM datasets from remote locations. As the diagnostic ability of this tool is unproven, we evaluated the ability to diagnose acute appendicitis on abdominal CT using a mobile DICOM viewer. This HIPAA compliant study was IRB-approved. Twenty-five abdominal CT studies from patients with RLQ pain were(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to compare localization of the language cortex using cortical stimulation mapping (CSM), high gamma electrocorticography (hgECoG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). METHODS Language mapping using CSM, hgECoG, fMRI, and TMS were compared in nine patients(More)
Gómez-López-Hernández syndrome (GLHS) is a clinical condition traditionally characterized by rhombencephalosynapsis (RS), parieto-occipital alopecia, and trigeminal anesthesia. It is a neurocutaneous disorder with no known etiology. The underlying cause of the trigeminal anesthesia in GLHS has not been examined or reported; it has merely been identified on(More)
OBJECTIVE Accurate noninvasive assessment of motor function using functional MRI (fMRI) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a challenge in patients who are very young or who are developmentally delayed. In such cases, passive mapping of the sensorimotor cortex is performed under sedation. We examined the feasibility of using transcranial magnetic(More)
Autopsy studies have described definitive traumatic avulsion of the oculomotor nerve from the brainstem; however, detailed characterization of mechanisms and localization of traumatic nerve injury has yet to be definitively described in vivo. We report the case of a 13-year-old girl in whom high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging confirmed irreversible(More)
INTRODUCTION Commissural white matter fibers comprising the callosal splenium are diverse. Subsections of the splenium myelinate at different times, in a centrolineal manner. The aims of this study are to depict the normal callosal splenium myelination pattern and to distinguish the transient age-related mid splenium hypointensity from pathology. METHODS(More)
In this study, we have addressed the question of functional brain reorganization for language in the presence and absence of anatomical lesions in two patients with epilepsy using cortical stimulation mapping and high gamma (HG) activity in subdural grid recordings. In both, the expressive language cortex was defined as the cortical patch below the(More)
We describe a 14-year-old boy with a pilocytic astrocytoma of the left caudate head. Preoperative localization MR imaging (MRI) was performed in the operating room, and spatial distortion was noted felt to be related to head positioning relative to the isocenter of the magnetic field. The distortion artifact was subtle enough to be difficult to detect, but(More)
