Quality assurance data were collected prospectively for children who were sedated (n = 922) or given general anaesthesia (n = 140) for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computerized tomography (CT). The data included patient characteristics, concurrent medication, adequacy of sedation, adverse events and requirement for escalated care. The quality of(More)
PURPOSE To assess the clinical utility of GRASE (gradient- and spin-echo) MR imaging of the brain by comparing it with the T2-weighted turbo spin-echo technique. METHODS Fifty-three consecutive patients referred for MR imaging of the brain were studied with T2-weighted turbo spin-echo and GRASE techniques, matched for effective echo time (110(More)
OBJECTIVE Our objective was to assess the usefulness of the dual-echo gradient- and spin-echo (GRASE) technique in revealing acute hemorrhagic brain lesions and compare GRASE and fast spin-echo techniques for revealing acute hemorrhagic lesions and image artifacts. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-two consecutive patients with acute intracranial hemorrhage(More)
Second metacarpal length (M2), radio-metacarpal length (RM), and intermetacarpal width (W) were measured on 96 radiographs in 52 children with polyarticular juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA), and compared with body height and skeletal maturation in order to: (1) differentiate between processes resulting in retardation of bone growth and those producing(More)
