We present imaging evidence of the spreading of cortical edema with reversibly restricted water diffusion from the left occipital to the temporoparietal cortex in persistent visual migraine aura in a 58-year-old man. The right-sided visual field defect lasting for 15 days was associated with discoupling of glucose metabolism and blood flow and the decreased(More)
Resting cerebral glucose metabolism was assessed by 18[F]-fluorodeoxyglucose in 11 Down syndrome patients. Standardized uptake values were determined on a pixel-by-pixel basis from the measured tissue-activity data. The results revealed a mean overall 18[F]-fluorodeoxyglucose uptake in the Down syndrome patients close to that observed in the control group,(More)
The authors have analyzed and compared the results of the 99mTc-ECD-SPECT and FDG-PET examinations, performed in alert state, of 12 children suffering from infantile (9 subjects) or atypical (3 subjects) autism. In addition to frontally increased FDG metabolism, a decreased blood flow with left-sided dominance was found bifrontally and bitemporally in the(More)
Involvement of the brain is one of the most important complications of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). To investigate the correlation between abnormal cranial MRI findings and age, duration of SLE, neuropsychiatric (NP) manifestations, hypertensive status, and the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies (PA) in patients with SLE we evaluated the MRI(More)
The potassium staining method is based on the formation of potassium cobaltnitrite crystals after the treatment by sodium cobaltnitrite of brain tissue. The degree of staining correlates with the distinct potassium content of infracted and non-infarcted brain areas. The aim of the present study was to prove that potassium staining technique is a reliable(More)
BACKGROUND Cerebrovascular reactivity measurements are believed to be a helpful tool for selecting patients who are at higher risk for hemodynamic strokes. The aim of this study was to compare cerebral vasoreactivity among patients suffering from internal carotid artery stenosis of different severity (asymptomatic stenosis, asymptomatic occlusion,(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The correct detection and quantification of carotid artery disease are of decisive impact on patient prognosis and adequate treatment. In this study, we evaluated the ability of ultrasonography to detect and to grade carotid artery stenosis through a comparison of the in vivo ultrasound findings with the planimetric analysis of the(More)
The authors investigated the role of the cBZD/GABA-A receptor-complex in the regulation of rCBF by simultaneously applying [15O]-butanol-PET and TCD in therapy-resistant TLE patients. It is known that the density of the cBZD/GABA-A-receptors is reduced in the epileptogenic area of the temporal lobe, but there are no data available about the impact of this(More)
