Head and eye movements induced by vestibular stimuli (rotational velocity steps) were studied under several experimental conditions in squirrel monkeys. Monkeys showed prominent head nystagmus under a free head condition. Slow phase gaze velocity (SPGV) was calculated by summing the slow phase speed of coupled head and eye nystagmus. A statistical test(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The factors that influence the conspicuity of polyps on computed tomographic (CT) colonography (CTC) are poorly understood. The aim of this study is to compare radiologists' visual assessment of polyp conspicuity to quantitative image features and show the relationship between visual conspicuity and the detection of colonic polyps(More)
CT colonography has become a potential alternative technique to optical colonoscopy for the detection of colorectal polyps and cancer. While considered safer than optical colonoscopy, CT colonography is not without risk. We report a case of colonic perforation during CT colonography using automated CO2 insufflation and present procedural changes to help(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES To determine whether the display of computer-aided detection (CAD) marks on individual polyps on both the supine and prone scans leads to improved polyp detection by radiologists compared to the display of CAD marks on individual polyps on either the supine or the prone scan, but not both. MATERIALS AND METHODS The acquisition of(More)
Head and eye movements in the yaw plane were recorded during and after optokinetic stimulation in squirrel monkeys. 1) Phasic or tonic head deviations to the side of the ocular quick phase occurred in 94% of total recordings (n = 50) during the perstimulus period, and in 75% of recordings (n = 49) during the poststimulus period. Magnitude of mean head(More)
The ability of the new generation H1-receptor antagonist, astemizole, to prevent histamine-induced airway obstruction and exercise-induced asthma (EIA) was studied in 20 children with asthma. The study was a randomised clinically controlled trial of oral astemizole versus placebo in a cross-over study. In each of the two treatment periods the children were(More)
Eye and head nystagmus during horizontal optokinetic stimulation was analyzed in squirrel monkeys. Slow phase speed of coupled head and eye nystagmus showed highly significant negative correlations in normal subjects; correlation coefficients were -0.81 at 60 degrees/sec and -0.72 at 100 degree/sec stimuli. Bilateral semicircular canal block resulted in a(More)
