Cardiac MRI in patients with acute coronary syndrome with elevated troponin levels but normal coronarography can now routinely be performed on most MR units. MRI plays an important role in this clinical setting by its ability to detect myocardial infarction in patients with normal coronarography or suggest a different, potentially severe, alternate(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the agreement and diagnostic accuracy of Contrast enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (CE-MRA), Doppler ultrasound (DUS) and Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) in the assessment of carotid stenosis. METHODS DUS, CE-MRA and DSA were performed in 56 patients included in the Carotide-angiographie par résonance(More)
PURPOSE Tendinopathy is a frequent and ubiquitous disease developing early disorganized collagen fibers with neo-angiogenesis on histology. Peritendinous injection of corticosteroid is the commonly accepted strategy despite the absence of inflammation in tendinopathy. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) might be a useful strategy to rapidly accelerate healing of the(More)
Most acute complications of myocardial infarction do not need emergency imaging, since they often result in death prior to hospital admission: ventricular fibrillation and tachycardia, papillary muscle or septal rupture, fissuration and tamponade. Imaging can play a role at distance of the acute phase (papillary muscle dysfunction, false aneurysm,(More)
PURPOSE To use diffusion weighted MR imaging (DWI), a technique routinely used in patients with stroke, for diagnosis of myocardial infarction (MI). MATERIALS AND METHODS A breath hold ECG gated DWI sequence (b = 300 sec/mm2) was developped and applied to 7 patients with recent MI (3-15 days), 3 patients with chronic MI (> 6 months) and 4 patients with(More)
