PURPOSE To calculate the sensitivity and specificity of computed tomographic (CT) angiography in the diagnosis of cerebral aneurysms in patients with acute subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) at presentation. MATERIALS AND METHODS A systematic search for relevant studies was performed of the PubMed/MEDLINE and EMBASE databases. Two reviewers independently(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate time-of-flight magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) in the follow-up of intracranial aneurysms treated with Guglielmi detachable coils (GDCs). From January 1998 to January 2002 27 MRA and intra-arterial digital subtraction angiography (IADSA) examinations were analyzed for residual aneurysms and arterial patency(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Radiotherapy, alone or combined with chemotherapy, is a treatment modality used frequently in head and neck cancer. In order to report, compare and interpret the sequelae of radiation treatment adequately, it is important to delineate organs at risk (OARs) according to well-defined and uniform guidelines. The aim of this paper was to(More)
We sought to establish whether CT angiography (CTA) can be applied to the planning and performance of clipping or coiling in ruptured intracranial aneurysms without recourse to intraarterial digital subtraction angiography (IA-DSA). Over the period April 2003 to January 2006 in all patients presenting with a subarachnoid haemorrhage CTA was performed(More)
This study was aimed at establishing whether magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) can be applied to planning and performing surgery on ruptured intracranial aneurysms, especially in the early phase, without recourse to intra-arterial digital subtraction angiography (IA-DSA). From February 1998 to August 2001, in all patients presenting with a subarachnoid(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE It is believed that minimizing inconsistencies in OAR-volume definition will help to improve adequate reporting and interpreting of radiation treatment results. The aim of this paper is to introduce computed tomography (CT)-based delineation guidelines for organs at risk (OARs) in the head and neck area, associated with(More)
Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is reported for the first time in a patient with Sjögren-Larsson syndrome, an autosomal recessive neurocutaneous disorder. Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) revealed normal levels of choline, creatine and N-acetyl aspartate (NAA) and the characteristic lipid signals in the white matter brain tissue. Conventional MRI showed(More)
Should Not Be Done for Patients with Subarachnoid Hemorrhage We read with great interest the recent editorial in this journal by Kallmes et al about CT angiography (CTA) in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). As can be expected in an editorial, the content is provocative because the authors state that conventional angiography is the one and only(More)
