STUDY OBJECTIVES To determine if transcatheter embolotherapy is safe and effective for the treatment of pulmonary arteriovenous malformations during pregnancy. DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING Specialized hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia centers at Yale University School of Medicine and St. Michael's Hospital, University of Toronto. PATIENTS(More)
Evaluations of several commercial presence-absence (P-A) test kits were performed over a 6-month period in 1990 by using the Ontario Ministry of the Environment (MOE) P-A test for comparison. The general principles of the multiple-tube fermentation technique formed the basis for conducting the product evaluations. Each week, a surface water sample was(More)
A stereotaxic frame, compatible with digital subtraction angiography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging, is described along with a set of software programs that run in an independent imaging computer system, as well as in the computers associated with each modality. Plexiglas plates fastened to the sides of the frame contain fiducial(More)
Over the past 2 years at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, we have evolved an integrated environment for the planning of stereotactic procedures, based on images from magnetic resonance imaging, digital subtraction angiography and computed tomography modalities. These procedures rely on fiducial marker sets which are attached to our 'OBT'(More)
Following 4 years of experience using a microcomputer-based system for the planning of stereotactic neurosurgery, we have now developed a workstation with the capability of displaying and analyzing three-dimensional images for this purpose. In addition to viewing volumetrically rendered three-dimensional computer tomograms and magnetic resonance images, we(More)
Within federally qualified health centers serving low-income, African American audiences, participatory approaches to system changes were organized through multidisciplinary committees that (a) drew on evidence-based guidelines, (b) guided system changes including the requirement of documenting smoking status and readiness to quit in encounter forms, (c)(More)
This study was designed to systematically investigate personality, psychophysiological, and cognitive appraisal variables in three groups of mothers, i.e., abusive (N = 14), neglectful (N = 13), and low-income control (N = 15). All subjects completed a Mini-Mult, the Repression-Sensitization Scale, the Group Embedded Figures Test, the Multiple Affect(More)
Stereotactic surgery requires knowledge of cerebral structures derived from more than one image source. We have developed a PC-AT-based workstation that accepts patient images, made with the stereotactic frame in place, from CT, MRI, and DSA modalities. Reference markers on the frame are identified in the images to establish the coordinate geometry for each(More)
A stereotactic method of brain localization is applied to magnetic resonance imaging for the interpretation of brain structures. This proportional grid system developed by Talairach is based on two intracerebral structures, the anterior and posterior commissures. It takes into account individual variations in brain size and shape. In an experimental study(More)
