In an increasing number of domains such as bioinformatics, combinatorial graph problems arise. We propose a novel way to solve these problems, mainly those that can be translated to constrained subgraph finding. Our approach extends constraint programming by introducing CP(Graph), a new computation domain focused on graphs including a new type of variable:(More)
This retrospective study was performed to assess the capability of magnetic resonance (MR) to depict and characterize diffuse and focal radiation lesions in the brain using the spin-echo technique. The MR images of 55 patients who had undergone radiation therapy were reviewed. Comparative computed tomography (CT) studies were available for all the patients.(More)
This retrospective study was performed to assess the potential of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging for demonstrating various types of lipomatous tumors and tumors with fatty component and to compare the results of MR with those of computed tomography (CT). MR examinations of 17 patients with 18 lipomatous tumors (16, benign; two, liposarcoma) and two(More)
Sequential radiographic and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging examinations were performed in nine patients with an intravertebral vacuum cleft indicative of avascular necrosis. Progressive changes in the content of the cleft occurred within an hour after the patients were placed in a supine position. Initially, the cleft showed a gaslike pattern during(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the ability of magnetic resonance (MR) to enable characterization of disease within lymph nodes and differentiation between benign and malignant lymph nodes. Ninety-three patients were examined. Normal and malignant lymph nodes were excised from seven patients, and the T1 and T2 relaxation times were analyzed in(More)
Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, symptoms, and pathologic findings were correlated in 59 uterine leiomyomas from 23 patients. The tumors varied from less than 1 cm to 18 cm in diameter. Fifty-seven leiomyomas were identified in the corpus uterus, one was located within the broad ligament, and another was detected in the cervix. Among the corpus lesions, 9(More)
In three patients with clinically unsuspected diagnosis, MRI has afforded a positive and conspicuous demonstration of dural sinus thrombosis, allowing specific treatment and followed by improvement in the patients' condition. Even in retrospect, CT examinations were nondiagnostic. Presenting symptoms were usual and nonspecific. CT and radionuclide scanning(More)
The purpose was to determine whether a strong decrease in apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) within epidermoid cysts (ECs) is actually responsible for their bright signal intensity on diffusion-weighted (DW) trace images. We studied six patients with surgically proven ECs in whom ADC calculation from T2-weighted DW-EPI-SE data were performed within the(More)
