BACKGROUND Adding oral clodronate to postoperative adjuvant breast cancer therapy significantly improves disease-free survival (DFS) and overall survival (OS). Long-term follow-up data from the prospective, randomized, controlled study are reported. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with primary breast cancer received clodronate 1600 mg/day for 2 years or no(More)
BACKGROUND Few studies have sought to identify, in a regionally unbiased way, the precise cortical and subcortical regions that are affected by white matter abnormalities in attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This study aimed to derive a comprehensive, whole-brain characterization of connectomic disturbances in ADHD. METHODS Using diffusion(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to differentiate true progression from pseudoprogression of glioblastomas treated with concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) with temozolomide (TMZ) by using histogram analysis of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) and normalized cerebral blood volume (nCBV) maps. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty patients with(More)
BACKGROUND In a general population of patients with stroke, the rate of new MRI lesions at 1 week was much higher than expected. With patients with minor stroke and TIA having a higher risk of recurrent clinical events, the authors examined whether patients with minor stroke and TIA also had a high rate of asymptomatic lesions on repeat MRI scanning.

PURPOSE To explore the role of histogram analysis of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) maps based on entire tumor volume data in determining glioma grade and to evaluate the diagnostic performance of ADC maps at standard (1000 sec/mm(2)) and high (3000 sec/mm(2)) b values. MATERIALS AND METHODS This retrospective study was approved by the institutional(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to compare the sonographic features as well as the results of fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) of follicular variant papillary thyroid carcinoma (FVPTCs) and conventional papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTCs). METHODS Forty patients with 44 FVPTCs and 59 patients with 74 conventional PTCs were enrolled in this(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The assessment of the therapeutic response of high-grade gliomas treated with concomitant chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) using temozolomide is difficult because of the frequent occurrence of early imaging changes that are indistinguishable from tumor progression, termed pseudoprogression. The purpose of this study was to determine whether(More)
PURPOSE To explore the role of histogram analysis of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) maps obtained at standard- and high-b-value (1000 and 3000 sec/mm(2), respectively) diffusion-weighted (DW) imaging in the differentiation of true progression from pseudoprogression in glioblastoma treated with radiation therapy and concomitant temozolomide.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE High b-value DWI has been expected to have an additional diagnostic role and demonstrated some promising results in head and neck cancer. The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic performance of DWI at a high b-value (b=2000 s/mm(2)) compared with a standard b-value (b=1000 s/mm(2)) and the ratio of ADC values of high and(More)
To retrospectively evaluate concordance rates and predictive values in concordant cases among multiparametric MR techniques and FDG-PET to grade cerebral gliomas. Multiparametric MR imaging and FDG-PET were performed in 60 consecutive patients with cerebral gliomas (12 low-grade and 48 high-grade gliomas). As the dichotomic variables, conventional MRI,(More)
