PURPOSE To retrospectively determine the incremental value of diffusion-weighted MR-imaging (DW-MRI) to T2-weighted (T2w) images in diagnosis of internal fistulas (IFs) and sinus tracts (STs). MATERIALS AND METHODS Fourteen patients with 25 IFs and STs arising from the small bowel (20), colon (4) and biliary tract (1) were included. Two independent(More)
This study was conducted to determine the incremental value of diffusion-weighted MR imaging (DW-MRI) over T2-weighted imaging diagnosing abdominopelvic abscesses and compare apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values of abscesses and non-infected ascites. In this IRB-approved, HIPAA-compliant study, two radiologists retrospectively compared T2-weighted,(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to compare a novel MRI sequence-3D fast-recovery fast spin-echo (FRFSE) cube-with a standard 2D FRFSE sequence for the investigation of uterine anomalies. CONCLUSION Compared with 2D FRFSE, 3D FRFSE cube provides superior image quality and improved 3D reconstructions in a shorter acquisition time and enables(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate feasibility of high-resolution, high-field ex vivo prostate magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as an aid to guide pathologists' examination and develop in vivo MRI methods. MATERIALS AND METHODS Unfixed excised prostatectomy specimens (n = 9) were obtained and imaged immediately after radical prostatectomy under an Institutional Review(More)
BACKGROUND Health care utilization patterns and associated costs of congenital heart disease (CHD) in young adulthood are not well understood. METHODS California State Inpatient Databases 2005 to 2009 were used to conduct a retrospective study on inpatient admissions of CHD patients 10 to 29 years old (n = 7,419) and of all patients of the same age (n =(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to determine if tubal patency can be assessed by MR hysterosalpingography (HSG) using a clinically available MR angiographic sequence (3D time-resolved imaging of contrast kinetics [TRICKS]). This capability would enhance the value of MRI in women with infertility. CONCLUSION MR HSG effectively shows tubal patency(More)
BACKGROUND Using hepatocyte-specific magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agents such as gadoxetate disodium, MRI can provide functional information regarding the patency of the cystic duct similar to hepatobiliary scintigraphy in addition to anatomic images. PURPOSE To describe the gadoxetate disodium enhanced MR cholangiography (GDE-MRC) findings(More)
Tags are metadata which helps describe the visual content of an image that makes browsing easier by better organization. Recent boom of Social Media sharing Websites has popularized tagging among a large pool of users by facilitating sharing and embedding of personal photographs. Inappropriate and Random tagging has come out of the blue as a major drawback(More)
Long-term pancreatic cold ischemia contributes to decreased islet number and viability after isolation and culture, leading to poor islet transplantation outcome in patients with type 1 diabetes. In this study, we examined mechanisms of pancreatic cold preservation and rewarming-induced injury by interrogating the proapoptotic gene BBC3/Bbc3, also known as(More)
A facile and universal approach is reported for the preparation of silica particles of various mesostructures based on the self-assembly of amphiphilic precursor polymers in water and subsequent condensation. Depending on the hydrophilization degree of hyperbranched polyethoxysiloxane, various silica morphologies including mesoporous particles, hollow(More)
