PURPOSE Our goal was to clarify the high resolution CT (HRCT) findings of community-acquired pneumonia based on pathologic findings and to make a differential diagnosis between bacterial and atypical pneumonias. METHOD This study evaluated 32 cases with community-acquired pneumonia, including 18 cases with bacterial pneumonia and 14 cases with atypical(More)
Clinical evaluation of 32 cases of primary lung cancer treated with Bronchial Artery Infusion (BAI) were reported. As to the relationship between Bronchial Arteriogram (BAG) and therapeutic effect of BAI, the therapeutic effect of BAI was closely correlated with the degree of neovascularity. And as no correlation was shown between therapeutic effect and(More)
Two-dimensional (2D) time-of-flight (TOF) stereoscopic MR angiographies (MRA) of the pulmonary vessels were obtained from 15 healthy volunteers and five patients with pulmonary cancer in the mediastinum and pulmonary hilum. Fifteen healthy volunteers were examined using FLASH (Fast Low Angle Shot) with breath holding (40/8/40, TR/TE/flip angle). Except for(More)
Twenty seconds and 3 minutes after starting rapid injection of Gd-DTPA, multislice dynamic (MD) images were obtained with the 2 dimension fast low-angle shot (2D FLASH) technique. Four of 5 cervical carcinomas showed high signal intensity in the early dynamic phase (20 seconds), so they were readily distinguished from the myometrium that were not enhanced(More)
The portacaval space is a relatively narrow region between the portal vein and the inferior vena cava that is usually well seen on cross-sectional abdominal imaging studies [1]. Various structures, including normal anatomic variants and extension of diseases from adjacent organs, can be detected within this space [1-3]. An awareness of the types of normal(More)
The breath-hold multislice dynamic study (BMDS) in MRI, which can scan the entire liver during a single breath-holding, was applied to 16 patients with 30 focal lesions of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The BMDS was performed at 20 seconds and 3 minutes after the bolus injection of Gd-DTPA, by gradient echo pulse sequence (FLASH). 29 nodules were detected(More)
An abnormal chest shadow was observed on CT scans in 25 cases of 23 immunosuppressed patients. Pulmonary disease was pathologically confirmed to be pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PC pneumonia) in four patients, cytomegalovirus pneumonia (CMV pneumonia) in one, bacterial pneumonia in seven, fungal infection in three, miliary tuberculosis in one, leukemic(More)
Gd-DTPA enhanced dynamic MR imaging was performed in 11 normal uteri using a 1.5-T MR unit in order to analyze normal dynamic patterns. After intravenous bolus administration of Gd-DTPA, dynamic study was performed with serial imaging-gradient echo (FLASH). In most cases of normal uteri, early enhancement was shown in peripheral zone that was similar to be(More)
Seven days after ethanol injection, MR images of the liver in 5 rabbits were evaluated by T1, T2-weighted SE and TURBO-FLASH dynamic images. Necrotic area was visualized as low-intensity on T1-weighted images and high-intensity on T2-weighted images. These findings were similar to the tumor that was not treated, so it is necessary to be careful for(More)
