Because published reports indicate that the antibiotic colistin (COL) has antifungal properties, this study investigated the antifungal in vitro activity of COL as single agent and in combination with the antifungal compounds voriconazole (VRC), caspofungin (CAS) and amphotericin B (AMB) against Scedosporium/Pseudallescheria spp., Exophiala dermatitidis and(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with corrected tetralogy of Fallot (cToF) are prone to develop pulmonary regurgitation and right ventricular enlargement resulting in long-term complications, thus correct right ventricular volumetric monitoring is crucial. However, it remains controversial which cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) slice orientation is most(More)
Improved real-time cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) sequences have currently been introduced, but so far only limited practical experience exists. This study aimed at image reconstruction optimization and clinical validation of a new highly accelerated real-time cine SPARSE-SENSE sequence. Left ventricular (LV) short-axis stacks of a real-time(More)
Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is the most common and severe dystrophinopathy. DMD carriers rarely present with clinical symptoms, but may suffer from cardiac involvement. Because echocardiographic findings are inconsistent and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) data are limited, this study sought to investigate asymptomatic carriers for cardiac(More)
OBJECTIVES T1 mapping allows quantitative myocardial assessment, but its value in clinical routine remains unclear. We investigated, whether the average native myocardial T1 value can be used as a diagnostic classifier between healthy and diffuse diseased myocardium. METHODS Native T1 mapping was performed in 54 persons with healthy hearts and in 150(More)
Background Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) relies on correct ECG-gating, which is hindered in arrhythmia. Purpose To examine whether a prototype free-breathing real-time cine sequence using SPARSE-SENSE (SPARSE) improves left ventricular quantification in atrial fibrillation. Material and Methods On a 1.5T MR system left ventricular short-axis(More)
PURPOSE To assess two compressed sensing cine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequences with high spatial or high temporal resolution in comparison to a reference steady-state free precession cine (SSFP) sequence for reliable quantification of left ventricular (LV) volumes. MATERIALS AND METHODS LV short axis stacks of two compressed sensing breath-hold(More)
Standardized computer-aided tumor response assessment is common in clinical trials. In contrast, unstructured free text reporting (UFTR) is common in daily routine. Therefore, this study aimed to discern and quantify differences between UFTR and computer-aided standardized tumor response evaluation based on RECIST 1.1 criteria (RECIST), serving as gold(More)
