OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to design, build and test a multielement receive coil array and position system, which is optimized for three-dimensional (3D) high-resolution dental and maxillomandibular MRI with high patient comfort. METHODS A 14 + 1 coil array and positioning system, allowing easy handling by the technologists, reproducible(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Identification of lesions in specific locations gains importance in multiple sclerosis imaging diagnostic criteria. In clinical routine, axial scans are usually exclusively obtained to depict the cervical spinal cord or used to confirm suspected lesions on sagittal scans. We sought to evaluate the detection rate for MS lesions on(More)
From 1972 to 1981, 40 valved extracardiac conduits have been implanted to bridge the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) in 37 patients for different complex congenital cardiac anomalies. The patients ranged in age from 2 to 23 years (mean 8.5 years). Two Dacron prostheses with incorporated Lillehei-Kaster valves, 1 valveless Dacron conduit, 27 Hancock(More)
PURPOSE In multiple sclerosis (MS) the sensitivity for detection of contrast enhancing lesions (CEL) in T1-weighted scans is essential for diagnostics and therapy decisions. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the sensitivity of T1w MPRAGE scans in comparison to T1w dark blood technique (T1-DB) for CEL in MS. MATERIALS AND METHODS 3T MR imaging was(More)
