Imaging of the window of the temporal bone has became an important tool in the analysis of hearing loss, vertigo, tinnitus in a context of trauma, malformation, otosclerosis, and chronic otitis media. A good knowledge of the anatomy and a good technical procedure are necessary for making an efficient diagnosis. The increased thickness of the footplate may(More)
The aim of this study was to search if half-dose gadolinium (Gd)-enhanced MR imaging with magnetization transfer saturation (MT) can replace standard-dose T1-weighted spin echo (SE) without MT saturation in brain tumors. Thirty patients with a total of 33 brain tumors (14 gliomas, 13 meningiomas, 6 metastases) were prospectively studied using T1-weighted SE(More)
The purpose of this study was to review and compare the properties of all the available cone beam CT (CBCT) devices offered on the market, while focusing especially on Europe. In this study, we included all the different commonly used CBCT devices currently available on the European market. Information about the properties of each device was obtained from(More)
Background: Diffuse infiltrative low-grade gliomas (LGG) of the cerebral hemispheres in the adult are tumors with distinct clinical, histological and molecular characteristics. WHO (World Health Organization) classification recognizes grade II astrocytomas, oligodendrogliomas and oligoastrocytomas. Conventional MRI is used for differential diagnosis,(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to simulate implant placement in the maxillary sinus septum, as a potential alternative site to avoid sinus grafting. MATERIAL AND METHODS One hundred partially or completely edentulous patients, with their maxillary sinus septum present in the edentulous region, were selected from the database of the Department of(More)
Fahr syndrome (FS) refers to basal ganglia calcification that is associated with many neurological and psychiatric abnormalities and appears as secondary to other diseases. We described a case of FS patient who was admitted in the Department of Neurology of "Prof. Dr. Nicolae Oblu" Clinical Emergency Hospital, Iassy, Romania, with seizure and mood(More)
OBJECTIVES An aberrant sinus anatomy or pathology can influence the sinus lift technique if it is encountered during surgical exposure. The purpose of the present study was to determine the prevalence of sinus disease and variations of normal anatomy among edentulous patients prior to sinus augmentation. MATERIAL AND METHODS 120 patients attending a(More)
We investigate radiographic features of vertebral artery injury/occlusion associated with nonpenetrating cervical spine trauma and to demonstrate the importance of the CTA in high-risk cases. With the popularization of CTA (Computed Tomography Angiography) and MRA (Magnetic Resonance Angiography), vertebral artery injury has been a common complication of(More)
BACKGROUND Recent advances have suggested that periodontitis (PD), the paradigm of chronic infection in dental pathology, shares several pathogenic pathways with cardio- and cerebro-vascular disorders (CVD), based on inflammatory mediators including IL-1, IL-6, TNF-α. AIM To assess pro-inflammatory biomarkers (C-reactive protein - CRP, IL-6) in serum and(More)
BACKGROUND Intraventricular tumors represent a diagnostic problem, due to a wide range of differential diagnosis, with an important variability of tumoral histological types in adult and pediatric population. Patient, METHODS AND RESULTS Our case is represented by a patient, aged 48 years, without any history of significant personal pathology, accusing(More)
