Three neuroradiologists perceptually evaluated CT of 24 patients with Alzheimer type dementia and 22 normal control subjects and made a dichotomous judgment for each case (i.e., normal control or Alzheimer type dementia). The mean percentage of patients correctly classified was 83.3%. The neuroradiologists also completed perceptual ratings on each scan.(More)
A newly developed computerized technique was used to analyze the CT scans of 49 patients with dementia of the Alzheimer type and 31 normal control subjects. Nine brain regions distributed across five CT slices were evaluated for each individual. For the purpose of analysis, the patients and controls were divided into an exploratory set and a test set.(More)
Identifying the genetic input for fetal growth will help to understand common, serious complications of pregnancy such as fetal growth restriction. Genomic imprinting is an epigenetic process that silences one parental allele, resulting in monoallelic expression. Imprinted genes are important in mammalian fetal growth and development. Evidence has emerged(More)
CONTEXT Fetal growth involves highly complex molecular pathways. IGF2 is a key paternally expressed growth hormone that is critical for in utero growth in mice. Its role in human fetal growth has remained ambiguous, as it has only been studied in term tissues. Conversely the maternally expressed growth suppressor, PHLDA2, has a significant negative(More)
Seventy-nine healthy men ranging in age from 31 to 87 years underwent a computed tomographic (CT) scan and were administered a neuropsychologic test battery. Midventricular, high ventricular, and supraventricular CT slices were analyzed for each individual. Computerized techniques calculated the percent of fluid volume and the mean CT density for each(More)
Age-related changes in mean CT attenuation values of brain tissue were analyzed by an objective, automated technique. Study participants included 64 healthy men ranging in age from 31 to 87 years. Five CT slices from each individual were evaluated: the last ventricular slice and the next four supraventricular slices. Regression analyses indicated that(More)
