MR images showed an enhancing, enlarging mass in the tectum of the midbrain in a child with neurofibromatosis type 1. The mass was presumed to be a tectal glioma, which initially enlarged then regressed in size over a 3-year period and ceased to enhance. Although a tissue diagnosis was not available, we believe the temporal evolution of this lesion is(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Angiogenesis occurs after cerebral ischemia, and the extent of angiogenesis has been correlated with survival in stroke patients. However, postischemic angiogenesis is short-lived and may be completely terminated within a few weeks after ischemic insult. The molecular mechanism underlying the dissolution of postischemic angiogenic(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Intracranial atherosclerosis (ICAS) is one of the major risk factors for ischemic stroke, particularly in Asian populations. We investigated the prevalence and risk factors of ICAS in asymptomatic subjects. METHODS We prospectively evaluated 835 asymptomatic Korean adults who voluntarily visited a tertiary referral hospital for a(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We investigated subsequent vascular events in patients with transient ischemic attack (TIA) and determined the predictors of such events among vascular risk factors including large-artery disease, TIA-symptom duration, and acute ischemic lesions on diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI). METHODS We identified 98 consecutive patients with(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE MR imaging can be used to measure structural changes in the brains of individuals with multiple sclerosis and is essential for diagnosis, longitudinal monitoring, and therapy evaluation. The North American Imaging in Multiple Sclerosis Cooperative steering committee developed a uniform high-resolution 3T MR imaging protocol relevant(More)
