The authors examined factors related to consumer satisfaction and willingness to recommend the provider among 1,366 patients receiving examinations at a free-standing medical imaging facility. The nontechnical (nonmedical) characteristics of the service encounter were drawn from three conceptual domains--staff behavior, atmospherics, and information--and(More)
Nineteen patients with rheumatoid C1-C2 subluxation of greater than or equal to 5mm were studied by computerized tomography (CT). CT demonstration of spinal cord compression as defined by loss of posterior subarachnoid space was present in 11/19 (CT+) and absent in 8/19 (CT-). Fourteen patients were examined by a blinded neurologist. Cord compression by CT(More)
An aneurysm of the vein of Galen can have a varied CT appearance in infancy. The classical picture is a spherical posterior third ventricular mass with the density of circulating blood contiguous with a dilated straight sinus and with uniform contrast enhancement. With varying degrees of thrombosis of the aneurysm which may occur in late infancy, the mass(More)
Computed tomography has proved to be the most effective mode of evaluating cerebral infarction in 143 documented cases. This was especially true when multiple focal infarcts were present. The incidence of contrast enhancement in acute infarcts was 88%. Concomitant acute and old infarcts were observed in 20% of cases. In the acute stage of stroke,(More)
The workup of left atrial myxomas has variably ranged from a physical examination, laboratory tests, and echocardiography to the invasive modalities of angiography and cardiac surgery. We propose that computed tomography (CT) be considered a sensitive, noninvasive adjuvant in the diagnosis of these tumors. This report describes successful utilization of CT(More)
Six adult male Rhesus monkeys (T), treated with 0.5 mg/kg dexamethasone for 106 days, and 6 weight-watched controls (U), were studied postmortem with pathologic examination and cranial computerized tomography (CT). Cortical atrophy, as defined by perisulcal atrophy and ventricular dilatation, was found in 50% of each group, but marked changes were noted(More)
