BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Recent technological advances in MR instrumentation allow acquisition of whole-brain diffusion-weighted MR scans to be obtained with b values greater than 1,000. Our purpose was to determine whether high-b-value diffusion-weighted MR imaging improved contrast and detection of signal changes in acute and chronic brain infarction. (More)
To describe the usage of aortic balloon occlusion (ABO), based on a multidisciplinary approach in severe trauma patients, emphasizing the role of the interventional radiologist in primary trauma care. We briefly discuss the relevant literature, the technical aspects of ABO in trauma, and a multidisciplinary approach to the bleeding trauma patient. We(More)
To lower the risk of stent migration in a graft–venous anastomosis stenosis following failed percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, two Strecker stents of different caliber were placed in partly overlapping fashion across the stenosis. In contrast to other methods, stent ``floating'' on the venous side was eliminated by using a stent with a caliber matching(More)
Combined cervicothoracical vascular traumas are very uncommon, mostly resulting from penetrating injuries. These injuries are accompanied with very high morbidity and mortality rates. In this manuscript we present a case of hemodinamycally unstable trauma patient whose major injury was penetrating trauma of both cervical and mediastinal major vessels. The(More)
Resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) is a technique for temporary stabilization of patients with non-compressible torso hemorrhage. This technique has been increasingly used worldwide during the past decade. Despite the good outcomes of translational studies, clinical studies are divided. The aim of this(More)
A review of recent progress on the design of a diagnostic system proposed for ignition target experiments on the National Ignition Facility ~NIF! will be presented. This diagnostic package contains an extensive suite of optical, x ray, gamma ray, and neutron diagnostics that enable measurements of the performance of both direct and indirect driven NIF(More)
