To seek neural sources of endogenous event-related potentials, brain activations related to rare target stimuli detection in auditory and visual oddball tasks were imaged using a high temporal resolution functional MRI technique. There were multiple modality specific and modality non-specific activations. Auditory specific activations were seen in the(More)
PURPOSE To study the normal signal intensity pattern in the primary auditory cortex (first Heschl gyrus [HG]) and the surrounding cortices in the superior temporal gyrus (STG) and middle temporal gyrus (MTG) on T2-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) images. MATERIALS AND METHODS Coronal T2-weighted fast spin-echo MR images in 30 neurologically normal(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The authors undertook this study to identify a precise, semiautomated, reproducible magnetic resonance (MR) imaging technique for measuring the basal ganglia, to establish normative volumetric data, and to verify the presence of previously reported asymmetries. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-eight healthy adults underwent cranial MR(More)
OBJECTIVE (1) To detect diffuse axonal injury (DAI) lesions by diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), as compared with fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) imaging and (2) to evaluate hemorrhagic DAI lesions by b0 images obtained from DWI, as compared with gradient-echo (GRE) imaging. METHODS We reviewed MR images of 36 patients with a diagnosis of DAI.(More)
In an adolescent medicine clinic with more than 1,000 patients during 1982-1984, 11 male adolescents reported a history of sexual molestation by females. This molestation had commonly involved acquaintances and was unlikely to have been accompanied by threats of violence or physical coercion. One-fourth of the victims of both male and female molesters(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Diffusion-weighted MR images have enabled measurement of directionality of diffusion (anisotropy) in white matter. To investigate differences in the anisotropy for various types of pathologic findings and the association between the anisotropy of tracts and neurologic dysfunction, we compared the anisotropy of the posterior limb of(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Early loss of a sensory modality has been associated with cortical reorganization in both animal models and humans. The purpose of this study was to map visual activation with functional magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and to document possible developmental reorganization in the temporal lobe caused by early deafness. MATERIALS(More)
PURPOSE To determine the worth of CT angiography of the circle of Willis as a supplement to routine CT in the examination of patients with symptoms of acute stroke in terms of its depiction of the number and distribution of arterial stenoses or occlusions. We also sought to compare the accuracy of CT angiography with MR angiography and/or digital(More)
