PURPOSE To evaluate ocular blood flow velocity indices in untreated primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and normal pressure glaucoma (NPG). METHODS Twenty-five untreated patients with NPG, 23 untreated patients with POAG, and 26 age-matched normal control subjects underwent color Doppler imaging for the measurement of blood flow velocity in the central(More)
Color Doppler ultrasound allows simultaneous imaging with real-time ultrasound and superimposed color-coded vascular flow, allowing visualization of vessels previously beyond the resolution of conventional imaging, such as those in the orbit. With this technique, 20 healthy volunteers were studied. Three regional vessels named 1, 2, and 3 were identified.(More)
BACKGROUND Rapid access chest pain clinics have facilitated the early diagnosis and treatment of patients with coronary heart disease and angina. Despite this important service provision, coronary heart disease continues to be under-diagnosed and many patients are left untreated and at risk. Recent advances in imaging technology have now led to the(More)
INTRODUCTION Population screening for abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) halves the associated mortality and has led to the establishment of national screening programmes. Prediction of aneurysm growth and rupture is challenging and currently relies on serial diameter measurements with ultrasound. Recently, a novel MRI-based technique using ultrasmall(More)
BACKGROUND Invasive coronary angiography is the gold standard means of imaging bypass vessels and carries a small but potentially serious risk of local vascular complications, including myocardial infarction, stroke and death. We evaluated computed tomography as a non-invasive means of assessing graft patency. METHODS Fifty patients with previous coronary(More)
OBJECTIVES Computed tomography (CT) can perform comprehensive cardiac imaging. We compared CT coronary angiography (CTCA) and CT myocardial perfusion (CTP) with 15O-water positron emission tomography (PET) and invasive coronary angiography (ICA) with fractional flow reserve (FFR). METHODS 51 patients (63 (61-65) years, 80 % male) with known/suspected(More)
OBJECTIVE There are no long-term medical treatments for uterine fibroids, and non-invasive biomarkers are needed to evaluate novel therapeutic interventions. The aim of this study was to determine whether serial dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI) and magnetization transfer MRI (MT-MRI) are able to detect changes that accompany volume reduction in(More)
AIM To assess the effect of two iterative reconstruction algorithms (AIDR and AIDR3D) and individualized automatic tube current selection on radiation dose and image quality in computed tomography coronary angiography (CTCA). MATERIALS AND METHODS In a single-centre cohort study, 942 patients underwent electrocardiogram-gated CTCA using a(More)
