BACKGROUND To obtain information on affected vessels in moyamoya disease (MMD), we analyzed the vascular morphological characteristics of MMD using three-dimensional (3D) constructive interference in steady-state (CISS) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS The population of this 3D-CISS MRI study consisted of 51 patients with MMD: 16 patients with(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Diffusion tensor tractography (DTT) for neural fibers of the head-and-neck region at 3T has not been reported. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of using DTT for visualizing neural fibers in the head-and-neck region at 3T and to explore the use of this method in patients with head-and-neck mass lesions.

The purpose of this study was to determine whether apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) value and T2 signal intensity (SI) in primary brain lymphomas affect their SI on diffusion-weighted images (DWI). On DWI of 16 brain lesions of 16 patients, 9 (56.2%) were hyperintense (grade-3), 4 (25%) partially hyperintense (grade-2) and 3 (18.8%) isointense(More)
