Hyperintense and hypointense MRI signals of the precentral gyrus and corticospinal tract in ALS: A follow-up examination including FLAIR images
In amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients, hyperintense signals at the subcortical precentral gyrus in brain fluid attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) MR images have been found moreExpand

MRI-FLAIR images of the head show corticospinal tract alterations in ALS patients more frequently than T2-, T1- and proton-density-weighted images
In some patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), T2-weighted and proton-density-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) shows hyperintense or hypointense signals at the corticospinalExpand

MRI of inner ear anatomy using 3D MP-RAGE and 3D CISS sequences.
The aim of this study was to compare contrast enhanced 3D MP-RAGE (magnetization prepared rapid gradient echo), unenhanced 3D MP-RAGE and 3D CISS (constructive interference in steady state) in theExpand

MRI of inner ear and facial nerve pathology using 3D MP-RAGE and 3D CISS sequences.
The aim of this study was to evaluate 3D CISS, unenhanced 3D MP-RAGE and contrast enhanced 3D MP-RAGE for the diagnosis of neoplastic, vascular and inflammatory lesions of the cerebellopontine angle,Expand

Diagnostic potential of pseudo-dynamic MRI (CINE mode) for evaluation of internal derangement of the TMJ.
In addition to the patient's history and a thorough clinical investigation, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) has been introduced to complete the findings for theExpand

Cortical T2 signal shortening in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is not due to iron deposits
Signal shortening of the motor cortex in T2-weighted MR images is a frequent finding in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The cause of signal shortening in ALS is unknown, althoughExpand

True proton density and T2-weighted turbo spin-echo sequences for routine MRI of the brain
Our aim was to evaluate the diagnostic reliability of turbo spin-echo (TSE) sequences compared to a conventional dual-echo spin-echo (SE) sequence in routine brain MRI at 1.0 T. The following demandsExpand

Renal arteries: evaluation with optimized 2D and 3D time-of-flight MR angiography.
PURPOSE To compare two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) time-of-flight (TOF) techniques in magnetic resonance (MR) angiography of renal arteries. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 46 patients, MRExpand

Virtual cisternoscopy of intracranial vessels: a novel visualization technique using virtual reality.
This paper introduces a different visualization method which we call "virtual cisternoscopy" using 3D MRA data sets. Virtual cisternoscopy uses well known tools, such as perspective volume renderingExpand
