To evaluate the potentials of NMR tissue parameters for tissue characterization we investigated 68 patients with benign brain tumors. Tissue parameters were accurately measured by a recently developed interlaced triple sequence. Each individual tumor was characterized by a set of three numbers (relaxation times T1 and T2 and proton density Rho). Different(More)
We report the case of a patient who developed a large brain abscess after neurosurgery. Cerebrospinal fluid from the abscess drainage yielded Abiotrophia adiacens-specific PCR products and microorganisms that were identified by conventional microbiological methods and by 16S ribosomal DNA analysis as Abiotrophia adiacens, which was formerly classified as a(More)
OBJECTIVE Atelectatic alveoli can be recruited or kept open either by sustained inflation maneuvers or by positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP). Little is known about potential interactions between both approaches. Especially, it is not known whether the recruiting effect of sustained inflation maneuvers is maintained in combination with a low PEEP, as(More)
