BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE High-intensity transient signals (HITS) during cardiac surgery are capable of causing encephalopathy and cognitive deficits. This study was undertaken to determine whether intraoperative HITS cause alterations of neuropsychological function (NPF) and/or cerebral glucose metabolism (CMRGlc), even in a low-risk patient group, and(More)
To establish cardiac MRI as a tool for noninvasive evaluation of activation patterns, 10 healthy volunteers were examined by cine segmented turboFLASH imaging sequences. Sequence modifications for low signal blood-pool appearance were applied, i.e., bilateral spatial saturation for segmented turboFLASH imaging. Pixelwise calculation of first-harmonic(More)
The quality of intravenous digital subtraction angiograms was sufficient for diagnostic evaluation in 90%. The accuracy of the method was 90% for the internal carotid artery. 40% of the internal carotid arteries showed stenoses, whereas the common and external carotid arteries were not narrowed in 90%. On behalf of these data the authors consider that i.v.(More)
