INTRODUCTION To investigate the feasibility of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) MRI for detecting pulmonary nodules at 1.5 Tesla in comparison with standard multidetector computed tomography (MDCT). METHODS Twenty patients with disseminated cancer disease in which MDCT had assured the presence of at least one pulmonary nodule were examined using a(More)
OBJECTIVES The main goals of this in vitro study were to evaluate the influence of thermocycling, ultrasonic stress and the removal force preload on the retrievability of cemented implant crowns using a clinical removal device (Coronaflex) and evaluating the tensile strength using a universal testing machine (UTM). METHODS Thirty-six crowns were cast from(More)
PURPOSE To intraindividually compare image quality and anatomical depiction of the lung and mediastinum using retrospective and prospective respiratory gating techniques for the acquisition of 4D-multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) of the chest in a porcine model. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twelve trachealy intubated domestic pigs underwent 64-row MDCT of(More)
