BACKGROUND There have been few magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies of the spinal cord in large multiple sclerosis (MS) patient cohorts and little is known about correlations between cord lesions and human leukocyte antigen (HLA) alleles. OBJECTIVE To investigate the spectrum of MRI changes in the spinal cord in MS and associations with the HLA-DRB1(More)
Coil embolization for aneurysms has been shown to be highly effective treatment to prevent acute recurrent hemorrhages (F. Viñuela, “Summary of the Multicentric Study Results of the Treatment of Cerebral Aneurysms using the GDC System,” presented at the 33rd Annual Meeting of the American Society of Neuroradiology, Chicago, Ill, April 1995). The long-term(More)
Non-Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) genes have concomitant, although modest, effects on multiple sclerosis (MS) susceptibility; however findings have varied in different populations. Here we present the results of an association study of 16 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 10 non-HLA genes (IL7R, IL2RA, CLEC-16A, TYK2, CD58, IRF5, STAT3, CTLA-4,(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Traditional methods of dating a pregnancy based on history or sonographic assessment have a large variation in the third trimester. We aimed to assess the ability of various quantitative measures of brain cortical folding on MR imaging in determining fetal gestational age in the third trimester. MATERIALS AND METHODS We evaluated 8(More)
