After closed head injury nineteen patients had single photon emission tomography (SPECT) using the lipophilic tracer 99m-Technetium hexamethyl-propylene-amineoxime (HMPAO) to compare the defects shown by CT and MRI. SPECT showed more focal cerebral lesions than either CT or MRI alone or in combination. Most lesions shown by SPECT were not shown by CT or MRI(More)
44 patients with a range of parenchymal liver diseases diagnosed by biopsy or laboratory investigations underwent proton nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) relaxometry of the liver at 0.08 T. T1 maps were produced using an interleaved saturation recovery and inversion recovery sequence and T2 maps using a four echo Carr-Purcell-Meiboom-Gill sequence.(More)
Accurate prediction of the response of an individual patient to lithotripsy remains impossible. Certain factors such as the chemical composition, size, and position of the calculus are known to be important in determining the success rate. This paper reports the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to evaluate 141 urinary calculi in vitro. A wide range(More)
The spin-lattice (T1) and spin-spin (T2) relaxation times of liver in 42 normal volunteers (21 male and 21 female) were measured using a calibrated 0.08 T resistive imager capable of accurate and reproducible relaxometry. T1 was determined using an interleaved gradient echo saturation recovery and inversion recovery technique and T2 using a four-echo(More)
