Elucidation of the dynamic nature of plaque progression has important implications for clinicians. The present study sought to establish an in vivo method for visualizing structural changes in carotid plaques. Three-dimensional reconstruction of parallel two-dimensional gray-scale B-mode ultrasound combined with power-mode examination of 38 carotid artery(More)
Moyamoya syndrome is characterized by the reticulated collateralization of the intracranial vasculature distal to an occlusion of proximal intracranial vessels. In the present study this pathology was visualized in 2 patients, aged 29 and 32 years, using transcranial color Doppler imaging (TCDI). Digital subtraction angiography in both patients revealed(More)
Mobile technologies are likely to reveal a high potential to improve the information exchange in medical treatment. Especially in emergency services, the use of these technologies can support the work of the regionally distributed actors. During the last years many projects dealing with innovative mobile systems were started as pilots but in most cases the(More)
Power Doppler is a new ultrasound technique based on the visualization of the Doppler power spectrum. In 22 patients with different lesions of brain-supplying vessels the results of power Doppler ultrasound were compared with those of digital subtraction angiography and conventional color Doppler ultrasound. In patients with intracranial high-degree(More)
Pervasive Computing is developing fast and is presenting new opportunities for medical care. Unfortunately, technology selection and adoption in the healthcare sector and by physicians is typically an intricate process. Exemplified by Multiple Sclerosis (MS) this paper describes the assessment of a dedicated PC technology with respect to medical usefulness(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Lowering of serum cholesterol levels with HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins) slowed the progression of atherosclerosis in the carotid arteries in several clinical trials using carotid artery intima media thickness as primary outcome measure. Whereas conventional ultrasonography is limited to thin 2-dimensional image planes,(More)
The application of different color-coding techniques in transcranial color-coded duplex sonography (TCCD) was assessed for detection and measurement of the size of intracranial aneurysms. Thirty-two consecutively examined patients with 36 angiographically verified cerebral aneurysms underwent TCCD with color Doppler flow imaging (CDFI), power Doppler(More)
Three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound angiography was performed to diagnose carotid artery atherosclerosis. Thirty-five patients (15 women, 20 men) with a history of cerebrovascular disease were examined using conventional color-coded Doppler ultrasound and 3D ultrasound angiography. Carotid stenosis was initially diagnosed using continuous-wave Doppler(More)
Background: Delayed-release dimethyl fumarate (DMF), indicated for the treatment of patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS), is a disease-modifying therapy with potential immunomodulatory and neuropro-tective effects. In clinical trials, DMF was associated with reduced white blood cell and absolute lymphocyte counts. Current US prescribing(More)
