OBJECTIVE Cerebral microbleeds (CMBs) are known to be indicative of bleeding-prone microangiopathy. Little is known about the significance of CMBs in anticoagulated patients. We determined the frequency of new CMBs in ischemic stroke patients who had been receiving warfarin treatment for 2 years. METHODS A total of 204 ischemic stroke patients on warfarin(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the possible effects of the reproductive status and seasonal variations on the serum chemistry and vitamin status and their relationships with the thyroid hormones in Sakiz-Awassi crossbreed sheep. The sheep (n = 34) were divided into two groups. The first group (n = 22) was mated; the second group (n = 12) was not(More)
Duodenal duplication is a rare cause of acute pancreatitis in children. We report a case of acute pancreatitis in which abdominal sonography revealed an enlarged hypoechoic edematous pancreas with mildly dilated main pancreatic duct and a cystic structure with layered wall in the second part of duodenum. Abdominal CT yielded similar findings. The diagnosis(More)
The purpose of this study was to retrospectively evaluate the cognitive and electroclinical characteristics of right cerebral hemiatrophy (Dyke-Davidoff-Masson syndrome [DDMS]). Cognitive assessments with a particular emphasis on visuospatial functions, electroclinical features, and neuroimaging characteristics were analyzed for five patients with a(More)
The aim of our study was to compare multidetector row computed tomography (CT) angiography (MDCTA) with digital subtraction angiography (DSA) in the detection and characterization of intracranial aneurysms. Between September 2005 and May 2007, 55 consecutive patients with suspected intracranial aneurysms underwent conventional DSA and MDCTA. Thirty-two(More)
Lymphangiomatosis is a rare disease with multifocal lymphatic proliferation that typically occurs during childhood and involves multiple parenchymal organs including the lung, liver, spleen, bone, and skin. Lymphangiomatosis may occur synchronously or metachronously with cystic hygroma of the neck. We present US, CT, and MRI findings of cystic hygroma of(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to compare the efficacy of cranial MR images obtained immediately after, 5 minutes after, and 10 minutes after the injection of 0.5-mol/L (Magnevist) and 1.0-mol/L (Gadovist) gadolinium chelates in the detection of active multiple sclerosis (MS) lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty patients with MS were examined(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the diagnostic accuracy of spiral CT angiography (CTA) in detection of cerebral aneurysms in cases with acute subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). MATERIALS AND METHODS Spiral CT angiography and DSA examinations were performed in 32 cases due to non-traumatic SAH. CTA data were obtained by maximum intensity projection (MIP) method. CTA(More)
A circumflex (Cx) artery originating from the right coronary artery is one of the most common congenital coronary anomalies and is usually thought to be benign. Twin Cx arteries represent a very rare congenital anomaly with only three reported cases. Herein, we present a case of twin Cx arteries originating from the left main and right coronary arteries,(More)
To determine the diagnostic accuracy of 3D-CTA using volume rendering (VR) in the detection of residual or recurrent cerebral aneurysms after clipping. Between January 2006 and November 2007, 45 patients (20 female, 25 male) with 50 intracranial aneurysms treated using titanium clips were enrolled in this study. IADSA and 3D-CTA were performed within 1(More)
