BACKGROUND Both low tube voltage and sinogram-affirmed iterative reconstruction (IR) techniques hold promise to decrease radiation dose at coronary CT angiography (CCTA). The increased iodine contrast at low tube voltage allows for minimizing iodine load. OBJECTIVE To assess the effect of reduced x-ray tube voltage, low iodine concentration contrast(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effects of miR-124-1 on neuronal differentiation of rat bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). METHODS MSCs cells were assigned into three groups: control (uninfected and untransfected), miR-124-1+ (infected with miR-124-1), and miR-124-1- (transfected with Anti-rno-miR-124* Inhibitor). MSCs were induced by β-mercaptoethanol(More)
AIM To investigate the correlation of iodine concentration (IC) generated by spectral computed tomography (CT) with micro-vessel density (MVD) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression in patients with advanced gastric carcinoma (GC). METHODS Thirty-four advanced GC patients underwent abdominal enhanced CT in the gemstone spectral imaging(More)
BACKGROUND Thrombospondin-1 is a potent regulator of angiogenesis. The expression of cerebral thrombospondin-1 is promoted in a rat model of intracerebral hemorrhage. The current study was designed to investigate the change of plasma thrombospondin-1 concentrations and assess the prognostic value of plasma thrombospondin-1 concentrations for long-term(More)
OBJECTIVES This study was conducted to evaluate the clinical value of computed tomographic (CT) angiography for diagnosis and therapeutic planning in patients with pulmonary sequestration. METHODS Forty-three patients with suspected pulmonary sequestration underwent CT angiography before undergoing digital subtraction angiography or surgery. For each(More)
Pancreatoblastoma is a rare primary pancreatic neoplasm of children that may arise in any portion of the pancreas. We report a case of a 3-yr-old boy who presented to with abdominal pain our hospital and a progressive bulge in his right abdomen. Biochemical evaluation and serum levels of tumoral markers were within reference limits. On the computed(More)
The contrast medium (CM) induced nephropathy required new CT imaging protocol. This study evaluated the feasibility of low contrast medium (CM) volume and injection flow using aortic dual-energy CT (DECT) angiography with non-linear blending technique. Sixty patients were randomly assigned to two groups: control group (n=30), single-energy CT 70 ml CM at(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the characteristics and risk factors of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) onset in pedigrees. METHODS A total of 865 subjects were screened and diagnosed by oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) based on American Diabetes Association (ADA) criteria. Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM), maturity onset diabetes of the young (MODY) and(More)
BACKGROUND Signal peptide-Cub-Epidermal growth factor domain-containing protein 1 (SCUBE1) in peripheral blood, which is identified as a marker for coagulation, was reported to be an independent predictor of poor outcome in some illnesses. We investigated the clinical utility of serum SCUBE1 in the prognosis of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). METHODS A(More)
BACKGROUND Pulmonary fungal infection is one type of the common opportunistic infections in AIDS patients. The disease is hard to diagnose because of its complicated imaging features. The objective of this study was to investigate the imaging performance characteristics of pulmonary fungal infection in AIDS patients. METHODS Fifty-one patients with AIDS(More)
