BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE As potential therapies aimed at halting or slowing the decline in upper motor neuron function in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or primary lateral sclerosis (PLS) are developed, a quantitative method for monitoring response will be necessary. Measurement of fractional anisotropy (FA) using diffusion tensor imaging(More)
A variety of congenital syndromes affecting the face occur due to defects involving the first and second BAs. Radiographic evaluation of craniofacial deformities is necessary to define aberrant anatomy, plan surgical procedures, and evaluate the effects of craniofacial growth and surgical reconstructions. High-resolution CT has proved vital in determining(More)

OBJECTIVE Parallel transmission MRI at 3 T improves image quality by reducing dielectric effects with radiofrequency shimming. The purpose of this study was to determine whether parallel transmission MRI improves signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR) in lumbar spine MRI at 3 T. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ten healthy volunteers underwent(More)
Two patients with eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) presented to a tertiary referral center. Both subjects' brain magnetic resonance imaging showed T2/FLAIR (fluid-attenuated inversion recovery) hyperintensities including linear areas of hyperintensity in the external and internal capsules with sparing of the lentiform nuclei. Single case reports of imaging(More)
A 5-year-old girl presented with intractable seizures and nonfocal hemispheric slowing on EEG. Blood, urine, and CSF laboratory values were all normal. MR imaging of the brain demonstrated diffuse volume loss of the entire left hemisphere. Clinical and imaging findings were consistent with the diagnosis of Rasmussen encephalitis. Diffusion tensor imaging(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To date, no systematic evaluation of image quality has been performed on the 256-section multidetector CT scanner for extracranial carotid evaluations. We evaluated image quality, patient dose, and examination time and compared these parameters with a 64-section multidetector CT. MATERIALS AND METHODS We reviewed extracranial CTA(More)
