BACKGROUND Peroneal nerve lesions are not common and are often exclusively assessed clinically and electromyographically. METHODS On a routine MR examination without dedicated MR-neurography sequences the peroneal nerve can readily be assessed. Axial T1-weighted sequences are especially helpful as they allow a good differentiation between the nerve and(More)
Between June 1995 and November 1998, 228 patients with relapsing-remitting Multiple Sclerosis started treatment with glatiramer acetate (Copaxone) 20 mg once daily in the frame of a "compassionate use" protocol in 15 Belgian centers. Following an average treatment period of 5.8 years, treating neurologists were requested to fill in follow-up forms(More)
PURPOSE A great need exists for objective biomarkers to assess graft healing following ACL reconstruction to guide the time of return to sports. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and reliability of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to delineate the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) graft and to investigate its diffusion properties using(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the diagnostic performance of 3D sampling perfection with application-optimised contrasts using variable flip-angle evolution (SPACE) turbo spin-echo (TSE) sequences compared to 2D TSE for comprehensive knee assessment at 3 T. METHODS From January to July 2011, isotropic 3D SPACE was added to a 2D knee protocol at 3 T. Forty patients(More)
We present a study on the clinical assessment of pelvic floor dysfunction in 30 female patients with proven multiple sclerosis (MS). A scoring system for pelvic floor muscle testing by digital vaginal palpation is proposed. The concept of pelvic floor spasticity in MS is introduced. The relationship of our findings with the neurological findings and(More)
