BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Image quality and diagnostic reliability of T2-weighted MR images of the cervical spine are often impaired by several kinds of artifacts, even in cooperative patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate if BLADE sequences might solve these problems in a routine patient collective. MATERIALS AND METHODS TSE and BLADE sequences(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate peripheral MRA using time-resolved measurements at the femoral as well as the calf level with regard to the presence of unwanted venous overlap. MATERIALS AND METHODS 150 patients were examined using a 1.5 T MRI unit for a three-step CE MRA approach with three partial injections of contrast agent(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE In a very limited number of cases, acute migrainous aura may mimic acute brain infarction. The aim of this study was to recognize patterns of MR perfusion abnormalities in this presentation. MATERIALS AND METHODS One thousand eight hundred fifty MR imaging studies performed for the suspicion of acute brain infarction were analyzed(More)
INTRODUCTION: Up to now, Periodically Rotated Overlapping ParallEL Lines with Enhanced Reconstruction (PROPELLER) or BLADE imaging has been proposed either to reduce motion artifacts in uncooperative patients, in cardiac or abdominal imaging or to reduce geometric distortions in echo planar imaging. Sagittal T2-weighted images of the cervical spine are(More)
