The aim of the current study was to assess the reproducibility of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) brain activation signals in a sensorimotor task in healthy subjects. Because random or systematic changes are likely to happen when movements are repeated over time, the authors searched for time-dependent changes in the fMRI signal intensity and(More)
Repetitive passive movements are part of most rehabilitation procedures, especially in patients with stroke and motor deficit. However, little is known about the consequences of repeated proprioceptive stimulations on the intracerebral sensorimotor network in humans. Twelve healthy subjects were enrolled, and all underwent two functional magnetic resonance(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether the extent of subtle parenchymal hypoattenuation detected on computed tomographic (CT) scans obtained within 6 hours of ischemic stroke is a factor in predicting patients' response to thrombolytic treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS The baseline CT scans of 620 patients, who received either recombinant tissue plasminogen(More)
A suprasellar location of a benign choroid plexus papilloma is reported. Local recurrence within the fourth ventricle was also present, 8 years after apparently complete removal. Imaging and histological findings were similar to those of the initial lesion. At surgery, the suprasellar lesion had no connection with the ventricular system. Seeding of choroid(More)
Head-down (-6 degrees) bed rest, a microgravity simulation model in humans, leads to muscular atrophy of the lower limbs. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) at 0.5 tesla was performed at 1 year intervals on the same six volunteers (except one) before and after 1 month bed rest. Three of the six subjects were daily exposed in a lying position to LBNP (lower(More)
PURPOSE To assess the capability of computed tomography (CT) in the prediction of irreversible ischemic brain damage and its association with the clinical course within 6 hours of stroke onset. MATERIALS AND METHODS Serial CT scans obtained within 6 hours of stroke onset, at 22-96 hours (median, 1 day), and at 2-36 days (median, 7 days) after symptom(More)
Six arterial anomalies at the base of the skull are reported. Five of these concern the course, or the filling, of the middle meningeal artery. After correlation with basic anatomical and embryological facts it appears that a satisfactory embryological explanation, based on regressions and reversal of flux, may be proposed. The same embryological phenomenon(More)
The goal of this study was to assess the reliability of CT-Scan in the cases of conductive hearing losses with normal tympanic membrane. A computed tomography of the temporal bone (CT-Scan) has been performed in a prospective manner in all patients who underwent surgery for a conductive hearing loss with a normal tympanic membrane in our department. Out of(More)
Metrizamide computed tomographic cisternography was used to examine 27 patients (19 males and eight females, 14-59 years old) clinically suspected of having cerebrospinal fluid fistulae with rhinorrhea. Twenty-one fistulae were traumatic and six were spontaneous. Five to 6 ml of metrizamide (or lopamidol, two cases) were injected by lumbar puncture at a(More)
PURPOSE To describe the MR imaging findings in eight patients with cavernous hemangioma of the orbit. METHODS CT, MR imaging and echographic studies of eight patients with cavernous hemangioma localized in the orbit were reviewed. All patients presented with a progressive symptomatology: in seven cases with a painless proptosis, in one case with a failing(More)
