PURPOSE To investigate the performance of hematoma shape, hematoma size, Glasgow coma scale (GCS) score, and intracerebral hematoma (ICH) score in predicting the 30-day mortality for ICH patients. To examine the influence of the estimation error of hematoma size on the prediction of 30-day mortality. MATERIALS AND METHODS This retrospective study,(More)
Recent advances in the treatment of cerebral gliomas have increased the demands on noninvasive neuroimaging for the diagnosis, therapeutic planning, tumor monitoring, and patient outcome prediction. In the meantime, improved magnetic resonance (MR) imaging techniques have shown much potentials in evaluating the key pathological features of the gliomas,(More)
Sortilin receptor 1 (SORL1) is involved in cellular trafficking of amyloid precursor protein and plays an essential role in amyloid-beta peptide generation in Alzheimer disease (AD). The major A allele in a SORL1 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), rs3824968, is associated with an increased AD risk. However, the role of SORL1 rs3824968 in the normal(More)
Atypical and malignant meningiomas are more likely to recur than benign meningiomas. We aimed to distinguish atypical and malignant meningiomas from benign meningiomas based on imaging findings. Between 2004 and 2007, a total of 75 patients with resected intracranial meningiomas were retrospectively reviewed. Histopathological grades were assigned as benign(More)
Lipoma arborescens is a rare entity of the synovium and frequently occurs in the joints. Lipoma arborescens involving the synovial sheaths of the tendons is exceedingly rare. We report a case of a 12-year-old girl with lipoma arborescence affecting the synovial sheaths of the peroneal, posterior tibialis, and flexor tendons. Identification of the typical(More)
Dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF) is an abnormal arteriovenous shunt that occurs in the dura matter within or near a dural sinus. The clinical manifestations vary. The authors report herein a rare case of type III DAVF presenting with coexisting intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) and venous infarction evidenced by computed tomography (CT) and diffusion-weighted(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Brain enhancement on contrast-enhanced T1-weighted imaging (CET1-WI) after ischemic stroke is generally accepted as an indicator of the blood-brain barrier disruption. However, this phenomenon usually starts to become visible at the subacute phase. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the time-course profiles of K(trans),(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the ability of susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) to predict stroke evolution in comparison with perfusion-weighted imaging (PWI). METHODS In a retrospective analysis of 15 patients with non-lacunar ischaemic stroke studied no later than 24 h after symptom onset, we used the Alberta Stroke Program Early CT Score (ASPECTS) to(More)
PURPOSE To investigate quantitatively the topographic perfusion characteristics of the adenohypophysis by using dynamic contrast material-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in a subgroup of patients with idiopathic growth hormone deficiency (IGHD) and with normal-appearing pituitary morphology on MR images. MATERIALS AND METHODS This(More)
OBJECT This study investigated the specific preoperative MRI features of patients with intracranial meningiomas that correlate with pathological grade and provide appropriate preoperative planning. METHODS From 2006 to 2012, 120 patients (36 men and 84 women, age range 20-89 years) with newly diagnosed symptomatic intracranial meningiomas undergoing(More)
