PURPOSE Previous neuroimaging studies provide growing evidence that patients with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) have both structural and functional abnormalities of the thalamus and frontal lobe gray matter. However, limited data are available regarding the issue of white matter (WM) involvement, making the microstructural WM changes in JME largely(More)
In this report, we have presented a diabetic patient with uremia, in which acute Parkinsonism occurred, coupled with acute mental confusion, after a sudden increase in blood urea nitrogen and serum creatinin levels. Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging revealed a unique cytotoxic-type edema in the bilateral basal ganglia during the acute phase.(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS The purpose of this study was to determine the appropriate cut-off value for fine needle aspiration-thyroglobulin (FNA-Tg) associated with postoperative recurrences and validate the diagnostic efficacy of FNA-Tg in patients after total thyroidectomy compared with concomitant cytology (C). STUDY DESIGN Retrospective. METHODS We(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the correlation between carotid siphon (CS) calcification and lacunar infarction caused by small-vessel disease. This retrospective study included 445 patients (M/F = 256:189) older than 40 years (mean age 60.0 ± 12.3 years, range 41–98 years) without large intracranial lesions who had undergone both brain CT and MRI(More)
We report the MR imaging findings in a 44-year-old man with a low-grade synovial sarcoma. There was a right-sided epidural and paravertebral mass, widening of the ipsilateral neural foramen at the L4-L5 level, and focal erosion of the right superior articular process of the L5 vertebra. The mass was relatively homogeneous, hyperintense to muscle and(More)
Over a 6-year period, 2,783 subjects, consecutively referred from the inpatient unit of a private psychiatric hospital, were evaluated with brain MRI. Twenty-three patients (0.83%) had brain white matter hyperintensities (WMH) that were highly suggestive of multiple sclerosis (MS). The subjects with WMH consistent with MS were most commonly diagnosed with(More)
The aim of our study was to examine the locational distribution of paraspinal structures on MRI and to determine any predictable parameters that may be used for the identification of transitional vertebra (TV). We enrolled 534 patients who underwent MRI of their lumbosacral spine. The locations of the paraspinal structures, such as aortic bifurcation (AB),(More)
Thirteen patients with gallbladder disease underwent power Doppler ultrasound (PDUS) before and after microbubble contrast agent injection. Lesion and liver bed vascularity was evaluated. Pathological diagnoses in nine patients were two acute cholecystitis, four chronic inflammation, one adenoma and two adenocarcinoma. Two cases of cancer were included on(More)
Neonatal maple syrup urine disease (MSUD) is associated with diffuse oedema and characteristic MSUD oedema. We present a newborn infant with two coexisting different types of oedema. The myelinated white matter showed a marked decrease in the water apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) compatible with cytotoxic oedema. The unmyelinated white matter showed an(More)
