PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to analyze the safety and efficacy of the pREset device, a stent retriever system, for endovascular mechanical thrombectomy (MT) in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) after middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion. METHODS Retrospectively, 48 consecutive patients (mean age ± standard deviation, 71.0 ± 11.9 years; 24 women)(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the recently proposed technique of 3He prepolarization at low temperature and high field (Kober et al. Magn Reson Med 1999; 41:1084-1087) for fast imaging of the lung. Helium-3 was cooled to 2.4 K in a magnetic field of 8 Tesla to obtain a polarization of 0.26%. The polarized 3He was warmed up to room temperature(More)
Hyperpolarized 129Xe was dissolved in a lipid emulsion and administered to anaesthetized rats by manual injections into the carotid (approximately 1-1.5 mL in a maximum time of 30 s). During injection, 129Xe NMR brain spectra at 2.35 T were recorded over 51 s, with a repetition time of 253 ms. Two peaks assigned to dissolved 129Xe were observed (the larger(More)
The first 3He nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) experiments using low-temperature prepolarization are presented. 3He cells were polarized at 4.2 K and 4.7 T, transported to another magnet, heated to room temperature, and used for NMR experiments at 2.35 T. Cells with and without a rubidium coating were tested. In both cases, the NMR signal was greater than(More)
