The frequency and quality of brain abnormalities in panic disorder (PD) were assessed with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The use of electroencephalography (EEG) to detect PD patients with a high probability of morphologic brain abnormalities was also explored. Consecutive PD patients (n = 120) were screened with routine EEG examinations and were divided(More)
In previous papers relative signal intensity increase was used as a quantitative assessment parameter for contrast uptake in contrast-enhanced MRI. However, relative signal intensity increase does not only reflect contrast uptake but depends also on tissue parameters (native T1 relaxation time) and sequence parameters (repetition time and flip angle); thus,(More)
MRI was used to study possible morphological changes in the visual system in 12 patients suffering from congenital blindness of peripheral (ocular) origin. While their optical pathways showed degeneration, hypoplasia or atrophy in 7 out of 12 cases, the occipital cortex appeared normal in all cases. This dissociation between afferent pathways and the cortex(More)
Thirty-eight patients with biochemically proven Wilson's disease underwent magnetic resonance-imaging (MRI) of the brain as well as neurological examinations. The patients were scanned using spin-echo (SE) sequences; the neurologist was looking for typical symptoms: dysarthria, tremor, ataxia, rigidity/bradykinesia and chorea/dystonia. Pathological MR(More)
Our purpose was to establish parameters for normal infratentorial brain maturation at 0.5 and 1.5 T and to evaluate the field strength criteria for the assessment of infratentorial brain maturation with MRI. We examined 27 children with normal psychomotor development (3 days to 24 months) with a 1.5 T system and 22 (4 days to 29 months) with a 0.5 T system;(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the role of short-inversion-time inversion-recovery (STIR) sequences in assessment of brain maturation. METHODS Twenty-seven infants and young children with normal neurologic development were examined by 1.5-T MR using a circularly polarized head coil. Axial T1-weighted and T2-weighted and spin-echo and STIR images were obtained.(More)

Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) was compared with conventional angiography in 14 patients following extra-intracranial arterial anastomosis. In 13 patients the bypass was shown by MRA and confirmed by conventional angiography. In five of these, the anastomosed vessels, in particular the superficial temporal artery, was of the same calibre or smaller(More)
Fifty-one patients with 59 angiographically proven cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) were examined by high-field MRI to detect blood breakdown products. Results were correlated with the history of intracranial bleeding. Evidence of previous episodes of haemorrhage was seen in 10 of 12 patients (83.3%) with verified bleeding, in 4 of 9 patients(More)
