OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to describe the MR imaging appearance of germinomas in the basal ganglia and thalamus and to compare the MR findings with CT findings. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eleven MR studies of 10 patients with pathologically proved germinomas in the basal ganglia or thalamus were retrospectively reviewed. In nine of the 10, the MR(More)
PURPOSE To describe MR changes in the cerebellar cortex and the dentate nucleus in patients with inferior olivary nucleus hypertrophy. METHODS MR scans of 11 patients with palatal myoclonus were reviewed. Among them, we selected 5 cases that showed lesions in the central tegmental tract and the ipsilateral inferior olivary nucleus. We evaluated MR changes(More)
SUMMARY The diagnosis of Bonnet-Dechaume-Blanc or Wyburn-Mason syndrome encompasses a spectrum of phenotypic expression. Features of the syndrome as originally described, and common to all, include arteriovenous malformations of the brain and orbit (with retinal and/or retrobulbar lesions). A portion of these patients manifest the complete expression of the(More)
PURPOSE Cavernous hemangiomas with a spinal epidural location are very uncommon vascular tumors in contrast to those in the vertebral body. The purpose of this study was to describe the radiologic findings, focusing on the MR studies, of spinal epidural cavernous hemangiomas. METHOD Five pathologically proven cases of spinal epidural cavernous hemangioma(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE There are a few reports regarding the outcome evaluation of balloon-expandable intracranial stent placement (BEICS). The purpose of our study was to evaluate the outcome and factors related to the adverse events (AEs) of BEICS. MATERIALS AND METHODS We evaluated 100 consecutive patients who underwent BEICS. We assessed the(More)
A study was performed to evaluate the relationship between the imaging features and clinical presentation of vertebral artery (VA) dissection. Twenty-two patients with 24 VA dissections at angiography and clinical evaluation also underwent computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. The angiographic patterns of VA dissection were categorized as(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Computed tomography is insufficient in evaluation of medullary lesions. Although lateral medullary infarction is a relatively common type of cerebrovascular disease, detailed correlation between clinical findings and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has not yet been reported. METHODS We studied 33 consecutive patients with lateral(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Early treatment is a critical determinant of successful intervention in acute stroke. The study was designed to find current patterns of stroke care by determining delays in time from onset of signs or symptoms to arrival at the emergency department and to initial evaluation by physicians and by identifying factors associated with(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The techniques of preoperative embolization of hypervascular spinal tumors, which has been known to be helpful for completing tumor resection, have not been described in detail. The purpose of this study was to analyze the technique and to evaluate the safety and value of preoperative transarterial embolization of hypervascular spinal(More)
To provide a detailed description of the MR appearances of central neurocytoma, MR images of 13 patients with central neurocytoma were retrospectively reviewed and compared with CT examinations. The histology was confirmed by ultrastructural and immunohistochemical studies. In 12 patients the tumors were histologically benign and located in the anterior(More)
