OBJECTIVE Single-photon-emission computed tomography (SPECT) scanning was used to detect potential central nervous system (CNS) involvement in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), by determining cerebral blood flow abnormalities. METHODS SPECT scans were performed on 35 SLE patients, grouped into 3 categories: those without neuropsychiatric(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate if dynamic gadolinium-DTPA-supported magnetic resonance (MR) imaging can monitor the therapeutic effect of a fast-acting immuno-modulating drug like anti-tumour necrosis factor alpha (anti-TNF-α) monoclonal antibody (moab) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Dynamic MR imaging was performed on 64 joints in a(More)

BACKGROUND Chronic hypoxia in tumors is generally accepted to be one of the most important factors concerning sensibility to irradiation. The principle of hypoxyradiotherapy is to achieve a limited (maximal 30 min) radioresistance of the healthy (actually euoxic) tissue by acute aerogen hypoxia, without protecting effects in the average chronic hypoxic(More)
In a 66-year old woman, who suffered from recurrent melena, diarrhea and hematemesis with multiple untreatable gastric and duodenal ulcers, a markedly increased basal and secretin-stimulated gastrin level, clinically a Zollinger-Ellison syndrome was assumed. The conventional diagnostic procedures (esophago-gastro-duodenoscopy, colonoscopy, endosonography,(More)
This study presents the results of in-vitro and clinical experiences with metallic implants during MRT investigations. In-vitro temperature measurements of various implants showed little temperature rise depending on the shape and the orientation in the static magnetic field (max. 0.3 degrees C). Ferromagnetic forces could not be detected with these(More)
In 18 patients with unclear pain in the wrist limiting hand movement, arthrography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were compared. The FISP gradient echo sequence turned out to be superior to the T1 weighted spin-echo sequence in the imaging of the triangular fibrocartilage complex. MRI is very sensitive in detecting triangular fibrocartilage lesions(More)
