Fifteen consecutive patients with PsA, 49 consecutive patients with RA, 30 RA patients matched for disease severity with(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to determine whether a three-dimensional (3D) isotropic resolution fast spin echo sequence (FSE-cube) has similar image quality and diagnostic performance to a routine MRI protocol for brachial plexus evaluation in volunteers and symptomatic patients at 3.0 T. Institutional review board approval and written informed(More)
To assess if ultrasound (US)-guided viscosupplementation can reduce pain and improve function in elderly patients with cuff tear arthropathy. Ninety-three patients aged over 65 with grade 3 or above cuff tear arthropathy were included in this prospective open-label non-randomized trial. Institutional review board approval and informed consent were obtained.(More)
To compare 1.5-T and 3-T magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the brachial plexus. Institutional review board approval and informed consent were obtained from 30 healthy volunteers and 30 consecutive patients with brachial plexus disturbances. MR was prospectively performed with comparable sequence parameters and coils with a 1.5-T and a 3-T system. Imaging(More)

OBJECTIVES To evaluate breast findings incidentally detected on body MRI. METHODS A retrospective review of the institutional database identified 1752 body MRI performed between January 2015 and September 2015. MRI of women with breast tissue visible in the field-of-view were reviewed for breast findings. Breast findings were classified with the breast(More)
