Multiphase contrast-enhanced 3D MR angiography (MRA) data sets allow the separate visualization of the arterial and venous pulmonary vasculature. However, due to short arterial-to-venous bolus transit times in the lung, the generation of pure venograms without arterial overlay is difficult. To suppress arterial signal in venograms, early arterial phase data(More)
Activation of the cerebral cortex during motor task performance can be visualised with functional MRI. A modified FLASH sequence (TR/TE/alpha 100/60/40 degrees, first order flow rephased, fat suppression, reduced bandwidth 28 Hz/pixel, 120 repetitions, three cycles of rest and finger movement for each hand) on a standard 1.5 T clinical imager was used to(More)
A fast MR pulse sequence with spiral in-plane readout and conventional 3D partition encoding was developed for multiphase contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (CE-MRA) of the renal vasculature. Compared to a standard multiphase 3D CE-MRA with FLASH readout, an isotropic in-plane spatial resolution of 1.4 x 1.4 mm(2) over 2.0 x 1.4 mm(2) could be(More)
The purpose of this study was to demonstrate selective visualization of pulmonary arteries and veins with high spatial resolution for improved detection of vascular pathologies. Time-resolved pulmonary three-dimensional gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance angiograms (3D-Gd-MRA) were acquired with an ultrashort 3D fast low-angle shot (FLASH) sequence(More)
SUMMARY We present a case of Klippel-Feil syndrome and Sprengel deformity with a bovine aortic arch and an aberrant course of the left subclavian artery in a 14-year-old boy. CT and MR imaging of the neck and upper thorax demonstrated a cervical osseous segmentation anomaly, a left common carotid artery originating from the innominate artery, and a left(More)
UNLABELLED Neurological soft signs (NSS), which are minor motor and sensory deficits, e.g., during finger-to-thumb opposition, are frequently found in schizophrenia. The purpose of this study was to investigate differences in the cerebral activation pattern in ten schizophrenic patients and ten healthy volunteers using functional MRI. METHODS fMRI was(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The detection of time-related maturational changes of the olfactory bulb (OB) on MR imaging may help early identification of patients with abnormal OB development and anatomic-based odor-cueing anomalies. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two separate reviewers retrospectively analyzed coronal T2-weighted spin-echo MR images of the frontobasal(More)
