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)
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)
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)
BACKGROUND Specific APP mutations cause cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) with or without Alzheimer's disease (AD). OBJECTIVE We aimed at reporting APP mutations associated with CAA, describe the clinical, cerebrospinal fluid AD biomarkers, and neuroimaging features, and compare them with the data from the literature. METHODS We performed a… (More)
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)
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.
