The authors reviewed magnetic resonance (MR) images of 474 consecutive patients referred for lumbar spine MR imaging. Type 1 changes (decreased signal intensity on T1-weighted spin-echo images and increased signal intensity on T2-weighted images) were identified in 20 patients (4%) and type 2 (increased signal intensity on T1-weighted images and isointense(More)
Between 1948 and 1984, autopsies were performed on 305 patients with primary carcinomas of the cervix, endometrium, ovaries, fallopian tubes, vulva, and vagina. Skeletal metastases were detected premortem and at autopsy in 49 cases (16.1%): cervix, 20 (40.8%); endometrium, 17 (34.7%); ovary, 7 (14.3%); vulva, 4 (8.2%); fallopian tube, 1 (2%). There were no(More)
A measurement of the Higgs boson mass is presented based on the combined data samples of the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the CERN LHC in the H→γγ and H→ZZ→4ℓ decay channels. The results are obtained from a simultaneous fit to the reconstructed invariant mass peaks in the two channels and for the two experiments. The measured masses from the individual(More)
A search is presented for direct top squark pair production in final states with one isolated electron or muon, jets, and missing transverse momentum in proton-proton collisions at sqrt[s] = 7 TeV. The measurement is based on 4.7 fb(-1) of data collected with the ATLAS detector at the LHC. Each top squark is assumed to decay to a top quark and the lightest(More)
Thirty patients with failed back surgery syndrome were studied to evaluate the effectiveness of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging with gadolinium-diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid/dimeglumine (Gd-DTPA) in differentiating postoperative epidural fibrosis (scar) from recurrent disk herniation. Pre- and postcontrast MR images were interpreted without access to(More)
Vertebral hemangiomas, unlike most bone lesions, show increased signal on T1- and T2-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) images. To define the basis for these signal characteristics, a retrospective review was done of the MR imaging findings in ten vertebral hemangiomas (eight patients), and these were correlated with the findings from plain radiographic,(More)
Pretreatment surgical staging in cervical cancer has been studied extensively but remains controversial because a surgical procedure is required and the information gained may benefit only a small portion of the patients staged. Pelvic and paraaortic laparoscopic lymphadenectomies have been successfully performed in animal models and humans. Little(More)
The jet energy scale (JES) and its systematic uncertainty are determined for jets measured with the ATLAS detector using proton–proton collision data with a centre-ofmass energy of √ s = 7 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.7 fb−1. Jets are reconstructed from energy deposits forming topological clusters of calorimeter cells using the anti-kt(More)
