2 Abstract The development of a daily historical European – North Atlantic mean sea level pressure data set for 1850-2003 on a 5° latitude by longitude grid is described. This product, known as EMSLP, was produced using 86 continental and island stations distributed over the region 70° W-50° E, 25° – 70° N, blended with marine data from the International… (More)
OBJECTIVE The first goal of this study is to compare gadofosveset trisodium--a gadolinium agent that reversibly binds to albumin--to an extracellular contrast agent (Gd-DOTA) for the detection of multiple sclerosis lesions. The second goal is to determine the best postinjection time for the detection of contrast-enhanced lesions. METHODS Nine patients… (More)
Methanol, a highly toxic substance, is used as an industrial solvent and in automobile antifreeze. Acute methanol poisoning produces severe metabolic acidosis and serious neurologic sequelae. We describe a 50-year-old woman with accidental methanol intoxication who was in a vegetative state. MRI showed haemorrhagic necrosis of the putamina and oedema in the… (More)
The authors report a new case of ganglion cyst of the peroneal nerve. The rarity of this entity induced the authors to report this new case, emphasizing the value of MRI which constitutes a reliable non-invasive examination for the visualization of this lesion.
The purpose of our work was to measure the accuracy and reliability of MR-Angiography in the study and follow-up of intracranial arteriovenous malformations, and in particular to evaluate the results of endovascular treatment. Over an 18-month period 4 patients with such malformations were examined by MR-Angiography. There was an angioma of the corpus… (More)
