PURPOSE To examine the incidence of neurologic complications associated with modern cerebral angiography and to assess patient characteristics associated with an increased risk of complications. METHODS One thousand consecutive cerebral angiographic procedures were evaluated prospectively. Examinations were performed using transfemoral catheterization and(More)
While head motion is considered a significant problem in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), there is no data to quantify its extent, severity, or effect on image quality. PROPELLER (Periodically Rotated Overlapping ParallEL Lines with Enhanced Reconstruction) MRI offers a novel means of quantifying and compensating for head motion. We performed axial(More)
Messenger RNAs homologous to a cDNA clone (pTOM 13) derived from a ripe-tomato-specific cDNA library are expressed during tomato fruit ripening and after the wounding of leaf and green fruit material. Both responses involve the synthesis of the hormone ethylene. Accumulation of the pTOM 13--homologous RNA during ripening is rapid and sustained, and reaches(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE MR venography is often used to examine the intracranial venous system, particularly in the evaluation of dural sinus thrombosis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the use of MR venography in the depiction of the normal intracranial venous anatomy and its variants, to assess its potential pitfalls in the diagnosis of dural(More)
A retrospective study was made of 60 patients, 1 month to 3 years old, to determine the normal progression of white matter myelination on MR imaging. All examinations were performed with a 1.5-T unit, and axial T1- and T2-weighted images were evaluated in each patient. Multiple sites in the cerebral hemisphere and cerebellum were examined in each case for(More)
Fumaric aciduria (fumaric acidemia, fumarase deficiency) is a rare inborn error of metabolism caused by deficient activity of fumarate hydratase, one of the constituent enzymes of the Krebs tricarboxylic acid cycle. We describe the clinical and imaging features of this disease arising from a consanguineous pedigree in 8 patients in the southwestern United(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the normal water diffusion changes that occur during the 1st year of life. MATERIALS AND METHODS Diffusion-weighted imaging was performed in 40 subjects (age range, birth to 1 year) in whom both magnetic resonance imaging and neurologic assessment results were normal at the time of imaging and, where available, at follow-up. Apparent(More)
In this study, we have assessed the development of neutralizing and nonneutralizing granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) antibodies in two groups of patients with metastatic colorectal carcinoma receiving two different GM-CSF products. Three clinical trials were carried out, and a combination of GM-CSF and a colon carcinoma-reactive(More)
