PURPOSE To compare the MR appearance of the pituitary glands of healthy volunteers with that of patients with microadenomas. METHODS Unenhanced coronal T1-weighted MR of the pituitary gland was performed on 52 healthy adult volunteers and 14 consecutive patients with evidence of pituitary adenomas. The MRs were interpreted in a randomized, blinded(More)
BACKGROUND One-third of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are reported to have had normal early development followed by an autistic regression between the ages of 2 and 3 years. This clinical profile partly parallels that seen in Landau-Kleffner syndrome (LKS), an acquired language disorder (aphasia) believed to be caused by(More)
The authors present a method of incorporating preoperative noninvasive functional brain mapping data into the frameless stereotactic magnetic resonance (MR) imaging dataset used for image-guided resection of brain lesions located near eloquent cortex. They report the use of functional (f)MR imaging and magnetic source (MS) imaging for preoperative mapping(More)
Copper deficiency has been associated with a clinical syndrome, myeloneuropathy. Radiographic changes resembling B(12) deficiency in the cervical spinal cord have been described. We present a case of copper deficiency myeloneuropathy, with cervical MR imaging findings resembling B(12) deficiency, which partially reversed following copper supplementation.(More)
PURPOSE To trace the development of the normal fetal temporal bone by means of plain radiography, MR, and CT. METHODS Eighteen formalin-fixed fetal specimens, 13.5 to 24.4 weeks' gestational age, were examined with a mammographic plain film technique, CT, and MR imaging at 1.5 T. Temporal bone development and ossification were assessed. RESULTS The(More)
OBJECTIVE Although ultrasound is the primary imaging modality for prenatal anatomic evaluation, some central nervous system malformations may be better defined with high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MRI allows us to visualize the features of brain development that were previously only seen histologically by embryologists and anatomists.(More)
PURPOSE To describe the flow patterns in a model of the vertebrobasilar artery and use these observations to explain the appearance of the flow on the MR images. METHODS We created an anatomically precise, transparent elastic model of the human vertebrobasilar artery containing a basilar tip aneurysm and perfused the model with non-Newtonian fluid which(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The developing fetal skull base has previously been studied via dissection and low-resolution CT. Most of the central skull base develops from endochondral ossification through an intermediary chondrocranium. We traced the development of the normal fetal skull base by using plain radiography, MR imaging, and CT. METHODS Twenty-nine(More)
OBJECTIVE Although the features of neuronal migration have been known since the turn of the century, the serial features of neuronal migration as seen with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have not been described. Our objective was to provide a template of the normal appearance and the temporal pattern of neuronal migration in the human fetal brain early in(More)
