In fifteen cases of arteriovenous malformation (AVM), serial examinations of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) using single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and N-isopropyl-(123I)p-iodoamphetamine were performed. On SPECT images, the nidus was visualized as a focal rCBF defect in all cases preoperatively and seven of these cases had abnormal(More)
To evaluate cerebral hemodynamics, 21 patients with chronic occlusion or severe stenosis of the internal carotid or middle cerebral artery with normal or only lacunar infarction on x-ray CT were studied using single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). We measured rCBV with 99mTc erythrocytes after rCBF with 133Xe, and calculated rCBV/rCBF. rCBF and(More)
The treatment of large, high-flow cerebral arteriovenous malformations is one of the most difficult operations which neurosurgeons encounter because of the complex surgery and the post-operative effects on the brain. We have evaluated 10 patients with large, high-flow AVMs who underwent surgical resection. Patients were investigated with contrast-enhanced(More)
A new CT system that permits real-time monitoring of CT images was developed. Phantom and volunteer studies revealed that the images were displayed at a rate of six per second with a delay time of 0.83 second with clinically sufficient resolution (256 x 256) using the newly developed fast image processor and partial-reconstruction algorithm. The clinical(More)
We examined arteriosclerotic carotid lesions in 76 patients using helical scanning CT (HES-CT), and evaluated the clinical usefulness of this method. A high speed slip-ring X-ray CT system was used. Scanning of the neck was performed for a 30 second period following intravenous bolus injection of non-ionic contrast medium, while couch top movement was 2.0(More)
Helical scanning CT (HES-CT) is a new technique to enable high-speed volumetric data acquisition. We have applied HES-CT to the diagnosis of cerebral vascular diseases. In our experience, the relationship between the scanning parameters of HES-CT and image quality was complex and reciprocal, so that optimization of the parameters according to the clinical(More)
A rare case of hemorrhagic infarction associated with carotid-cavernous fistula is reported. The patient was a 74-year-old female. CT scan showed hemorrhagic infarction of the left superior temporal gyrus, irregular vascular enhancement of the bilateral front-temporal lobe, and dilatation of the cavernous sinus. Left carotid angiogram revealed a high-flow(More)
We have developed a new method for obtaining reconstructed left ventricular (LV) planar images acquired from multidirectional views using gated blood-pool single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), and have applied Fourier analysis to these planar images. In this paper, we describe the methodology of our new technique and discuss its feasibility(More)
