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)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The relationship between the local blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) signals caused by neural stimulation (fBOLD) and the global BOLD signals induced by hypercapnia (hBOLD) has not been fully investigated. In this study, we examine whether fBOLD is modulated by hBOLD signals, by means of experiments using a relatively wide range of(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)
Subglottic hemangioma (SGH) is a benign neoplasm that may cause severe and life-threatening respiratory obstruction in infants. However, patients usually present with inspiratory stridor in the first few months of life and may be mistakenly diagnosed as recurrent or persistent croup. Definitive diagnosis is made by image studies, endoscopic examination and(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)
We report a case of synovial chondroma of the left ankle in an 11-year-old boy presenting with soft tissue swelling after recent trauma. The noncalcified or nonossified intraarticular chondroma arising from metaplastic synovium has characteristic imaging appearance on computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). A lobulated mass of(More)
Isolated intradiaphragmatic bronchogenic cysts are extremely rare. Here, we report a case of intradiaphragmatic bronchogenic cyst with calcifications in a 34-year-old man presenting with no clinical symptoms. Imaging studies of the chest, including chest roentgenogram and computerized tomography (CT), revealed a left posterior mediastinal mass that abutted(More)
We report the color Doppler sonographic features in a case of hemangiopericytoma of the thigh in a 52-year-old woman. Color Doppler sonography demonstrated the vascularity of the tumor, and spectral analysis showed waveform changes that suggested the presence of intratumoral arteriovenous shunting. The color Doppler findings correlated well with(More)
Renal primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET) is a rare and highly malignant neoplasm of the kidney. We report the case of a 17-year-old girl with renal PNET that was complicated by Budd-Chiari syndrome. She was admitted due to abrupt left flank pain and gross hematuria. Abdominal sonography and computerized tomography (CT) disclosed a large hemorrhagic left(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)
