PURPOSE To evaluate the MR findings of ganglion cysts of the cruciate ligaments in correlation with clinical findings. MATERIAL AND METHODS We reviewed 12 patients with ganglion cysts of the cruciate ligaments obtained from a medical record of 4153 consecutive patients referred for knee MR examinations. All patients presented with chronic knee pain and 4(More)
The signal-intensity loss from anomalous J-modulation effects due to chemical-shift displacement was investigated on amino acid groups (alanine, valine, leucine, and isoleucine) at 3T by using point-resolved (1)H spectroscopy in patients with brain abscess and phantom experiments. With a larger chemical shift between methyl and methine resonances, alanine(More)
Malignancy-related thromboembolism, so-called Trousseau's syndrome, can present as acute cerebral infarction, non-bacterial thrombotic endocarditis (NBTE) and migratory thrombophlebitis. It is usually attributed to a cancer-related hypercoagulable state, chronic disseminated intravascular coagulopathy (DIC), or tumour embolism. We report on two patients(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Current T2-weighted imaging takes >3 minutes to perform, for which the ultrafast transition into driven equilibrium (TIDE) technique may be potentially helpful. This study qualitatively and quantitatively evaluates the imaging of transition into driven equilibrium of the balanced steady-state free precession (TIDE) compared with TSE(More)
Intraventricular arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is a rare congenital vascular disorder that is often associated with primary intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) and a rapid clinical course. Acute imaging diagnosis requires depiction of both the location of hemorrhage and vascular nidus for emergent management. In this report, a 17-year-old teenager(More)
