If an intraperitoneal technique is used the intestine should be brought out through the rectus muscle. Generally, the symptoms are easily(More)
We studied 12 members of a family with precirrhotic hemochromatosis to define the physiologic abnormalities in the asymptomatic phase of the disease. Six of 12 had increased iron stores; the mode of inheritance was consistent with an autosomal dominant trait. Serum ferritin levels were no more predictive of tissue iron levels than measurements of serum(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate whether dynamic imaging of the coronary arteries can be performed with intracoronary infusion of low-dose gadolinium (Gd)-based contrast agent and assess the effect of long duration and multiple infusions on the image signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR). MATERIALS AND METHODS Dynamic coronary magnetic(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to describe hybrid peripheral (HyPer) 3D contrast-enhanced MR angiography (CE-MRA) using sagittal acquisition with parallel imaging of the calf and foot station. The benefit of a dedicated sagittal 3D CE-MRA acquisition of the calf and foot was evaluated by assessing the degree of venous contamination and its(More)
