Spiral CT and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) were performed in ten patients with 14 intracranial aneurysms known from conventional angiography. All lesions, the smallest 3 mm in diameter, were visible on spiral CT and MRA. The neck of the aneurysm and its anatomical relations could very accurately be determined in all cases. Advantages of spiral CT(More)
In this paper, we discuss the issue of geometric distortion in magnetic resonance (MR) images used to plan stereotactic neurosurgical interventions. We analyze the process for the case of Fourier transform imaging and demonstrate that spatial misregistrations are fundamentally due to two causes: deviations of the magnetic field from its ideal value and(More)
BACKGROUND The transmural extent of myocardial necrosis after an acute coronary artery occlusion can vary considerably. The contribution of residual subepicardial viable myocardium to global left ventricular function is largely unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS We studied 12 patients with single-vessel disease 1 week after successful reperfusion of a first(More)
BACKGROUND Gadophrin-2 is a new MRI contrast agent with high affinity for necrotic myocardium. The aim of the study was to evaluate whether noninvasive measurements of infarct size after thrombolysis are possible with gadophrin-2-enhanced MRI. METHODS AND RESULTS Coronary artery thrombosis was induced in 3 groups of dogs by the copper-coil technique.(More)
PURPOSE This work proposes a new method of building 3D models of microcalcification clusters and describes the validation of their realistic appearance when simulated into 2D digital mammograms and into breast tomosynthesis images. METHODS A micro-CT unit was used to scan 23 breast biopsy specimens of microcalcification clusters with malignant and benign(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of functional MR imaging (fMRI) at 1.5 T, exploiting blood oxygenation level-dependent (BOLD) contrast, for detecting changes in whole-tumour oxygenation induced by carbogen (5% CO2+95% O2) inhalation of the host. Adult WAG/Rij rats with rhabdomyosarcomas growing subcutaneously in the lower flank were(More)
We compared a fast fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) pulse sequence with a dual-echo short tau fast inversion-recovery (DESTTIR) sequence in 20 children with white matter abnormalities. Although the overall image quality of DESTTIR images was better, the lesion-to-background contrast was significantly higher with the fast FLAIR pulse sequence and(More)
