In 12 healthy volunteers and eight patients with cardiac disease, cine magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in the heart was performed with real-time true fast imaging with steady-state precession (FISP), which permitted evaluation of the entire left ventricle in one breath hold (91 msec per frame, 13 frames per section position, nine short-axis section(More)
PURPOSE To compare the sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value (PPV), and negative predictive value (NPV) of ultrasound (US) and MRI in evaluation of pregnant patients with a clinical suspicion of appendicitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 33 pregnant patients with suspected appendicitis underwent US and MRI. The original imaging reports(More)

The signal intensity patterns of rotator cuff lesions at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging were evaluated in 80 patients who had surgical correlation and in 13 asymptomatic individuals (14 shoulders). Six cadaver shoulders were examined with MR, and histologic correlation was obtained in four. All studies were performed at 1.5 T with a flexible circular(More)
PURPOSE To determine the incremental benefit of combined endorectal magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and MR spectroscopic imaging, as compared with endorectal MR imaging alone, for sextant localization of peripheral zone (PZ) prostate cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective multicenter study, conducted by the American College of Radiology Imaging(More)
Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the wrist was performed in 35 patients with specific complaints of pain and soft-tissue swelling in the medial side of the wrist. Twenty of the 35 subsequently underwent surgery. In 14 of the patients who underwent surgery, a diagnosis of triangular fibrocartilage (TFC) tear was made at MR imaging; in 13 of the 14 the tear(More)
Rapid advances in imaging technology are a challenge for health care professionals, who must determine how best to use these technologies to optimize patient care and outcomes. Hybrid imaging instrumentation, combining 2 or more new or existing technologies, each with its own separate history of clinical evolution, such as PET and CT, may be especially(More)
Because there are many potential risks in the MR environment and reports of adverse incidents involving patients, equipment and personnel, the need for a guidance document on MR safe practices emerged. Initially published in 2002, the ACR MR Safe Practices Guidelines established de facto industry standards for safe and responsible practices in clinical and(More)
