OBJECTIVE To determine the association between the self-report of pain and disability and findings on lumbar MR images, and to compare two different health care providers in Spanish patients with low back pain (LBP). DESIGN Cross-sectional MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 278 patients, 137 men and 141 women aged 44+/-14 years submitted with low back pain(More)
1H magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) allows accurate and non-invasive in vivo metabolic study, and is a useful tool for the diagnosis of different forms of dementias. Cognitive impairment pathologies have been almost exclusively studied with MRS by comparison with healthy without a global comparison amongst Alzheimer disease (AD), vascular dementia,(More)
The study was aimed at determining the association between the self-report of pain and disability by means of Northwick neck pain questionnaire (NPQ) and cervical spine MR imaging findings. A random sample of 251 patients, 132 men and 119 women aged 43+/-13 years, submitted with neck pain were investigated. Patients with previous discitis, surgery, neoplasm(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the relationship of upper thoracic spine degenerative disc contour changes on MR imaging in patients with neck pain. The relation between upper thoracic and cervical spine degenerative disc disease is not well established. DESIGN AND PATIENTS One hundred and fifty-six patients referred with cervical pain were studied. There were 73(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the value of magnetic resonance (MR) myelography in the evaluation of intervertebral disk and end-plate degenerative changes in the lumbar spine. MATERIAL AND METHODS Conventional MR and MR myelography examinations were performed in 150 consecutive patients (69 F and 81 M, mean age 45+/-15 years, range 18 89). Sagittal T1 and(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES To evaluate the prevalence of popliteal cysts in patients studied with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Cyst presence and volume will be related to other internal derangement of the knee. MATERIALS AND METHODS Three hundred and eighty-two consecutive patients with a MR study of the knee were included. Images were obtained in the(More)
Our objectives were to analyze different semiological patterns in craniopharyngiomas studied with CT and MR sequences. Retrospective study of 26 patients with confirmed craniopharyngiomas. All cases were examined with CT and MR imaging using a variety of pulse sequences (spin echo, inversion recovery, gradient echo in-phase and opposed-phase). The analyzed(More)
To evaluate the utility of myelography obtained with MR imaging (MR-myelography) as a complementary tool in patients studied with a conventional MR examination of the spine. 275 consecutive patients were included. All of them were studied with MR-myelography in 2 planes, coronal and sagittal, with a turbo spin-echo single-shot technique, as a complement to(More)
In abdominal MR imaging, ghost artifacts from noncyclic bowel movements can reduce the quality of the images. Although pharmacologic suppression of motion is effective, no study has being conducted to analyze the influence of drug motion suppression on fast breath-hold 1.5-T examinations of the upper abdomen. A prospective, randomized, double-blind trial(More)
