PURPOSE To retrospectively evaluate a respiratory-triggered diffusion-weighted (DW) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging sequence combined with parallel acquisition to allow the calculation of pure molecular-based (D) and perfusion-related (D*, f) diffusion parameters, on the basis of the intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) theory, to determine if these(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was to determine the long-term outcomes of arterial pelvic embolization for intractable postpartum hemorrhage and particularly its effect on menses, fertility, and outcomes of subsequent pregnancies. STUDY DESIGN Fifty-six consecutive patients who underwent emergency pelvic arterial embolization for severe postpartum hemorrhage(More)
BACKGROUND Real-time 3-dimensional echocardiography (RT3DE) is superior to 2D echocardiography in assessing left ventricular (LV) volumes and ejection fraction (EF), but its feasibility is limited by multibeat acquisition, which requires an optimal breath-hold and a regular heart rhythm. We sought to evaluate the accuracy and feasibility of single- and(More)
PURPOSE To compare posttreatment bone marrow changes at whole-body dynamic contrast material-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging with clinical response in patients with multiple myeloma (MM) and to determine if this technique can be used to assess treatment response in patients with MM. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was approved by an(More)
To evaluate both in vivo and in phantom studies, dose reduction, and image quality of body CT reconstructed with model-based iterative reconstruction (MBIR), performed during patient follow-ups for lymphoma. This study included 40 patients (mean age 49 years) with lymphoma. All underwent reduced-dose CT during follow-up, reconstructed using MBIR or 50 %(More)
PURPOSE To determine if intra-voxel incoherent motion diffusion-weighted imaging (IVIM-DWI) parameters, including free molecular-based (D) and perfusion-related (D*, f) diffusion parameters, correlate with the degree of tumor necrosis and viable tumor in colo-rectal cancer (CRC) metastasis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifteen patients referred for resection of(More)
PURPOSE To perform a quantitative analysis of anionic maghemite nanoparticle-labeled cells in vitro and determine the effect of labeling on signal intensity at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was approved by the institutional animal care and use committee at Hôpital Bichat. In vitro cell proliferation, iron content per(More)
To evaluate a diffusion-weighted (DW) black blood MR sequence for the detection of myocardium signal abnormalities in patients with recent myocardial infarction (MI). A DW black blood EPI sequence was acquired at 1.5 T in 12 patients with recent MI. One slice per patient was acquired with b = 0 and b = 50 s/mm2. A standard short tau inversion recovery(More)
RATIONALE The pathophysiology of acute chest syndrome (ACS) in patients with sickle cell disease is complex, and pulmonary artery thrombosis (PT) may contribute to this complication. OBJECTIVES To evaluate the prevalence of PT during ACS using multidetector computed tomography (MDCT). METHODS We screened 125 consecutive patients during 144 ACS episodes.(More)
