A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study of 20 chronic schizophrenic outpatients (5 women and 15 men) and 20 healthy volunteers, individually matched for age and sex, was conducted. Schizophrenics showed a statistically significant lateral ventricular enlargement and smaller corpus callosum: brain ratio than controls. There were no statistically significant(More)
A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study of 12 chronic schizophrenic outpatients (4 females and 8 males) and 12 healthy volunteers, individually matched for age and sex, found a significantly larger ventricle-brain ratio and smaller corpus callosum area in schizophrenics than in controls. There were no statistically significant differences in the image(More)
Chronic alcoholics may have CNS lesions, such as microvasculitis or glial, neural, and myelin degeneration, as documented in postmortem studies on subjects who had Wernicke encephalopathy, corpus callosum degeneration, or central pontine myelinolysis. One may also expect the presence of early white matter disease in patients who do not have neurologic(More)
Eighteen patients affected by intra-cranial aneurysms, with size ranging from 3 to 30 mm, were studied by means of MRI, CT, and angiography. MRI was performed using Spin-Echo (SE) sequences with different Repetition Times (TR) and Echo Times (TE), which allowed the characterization of the lesions in relation to the relaxation times. MRI could identify all(More)
The MR scans were retrospectively reviewed of 40 patients who had been diagnosed as having syringomyelia. Our results demonstrate that syringomyelia can be found in asymptomatic patients as well as in many with atypical symptomatology. Our study stresses MR efficacy in investigating this pathologic condition. As a matter of fact, MR allowed us to visualize(More)
The aim of modern senology lies in the diagnosis and treatment of non-palpable breast lesions (NPBLs). Through the diffusion of regional mammography screening the lesions being observed are continuously smaller, thus calling for more and more accurate methodology. Our experience in this area is based on the use of certain methods for retrieval and removal(More)
