METHODS We conducted a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Patients with a first clinical demyelinating event and(More)
Seven consecutive patients were suspected to suffer from corticobasal ganglionic degeneration (CBGD) and were studied with ([18])F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET imaging of the brain. At the time of their FDG-PET scan, 4 of 7 patients fulfilled the clinical criteria of CBGD as proposed by Lang and associates [In Calne DB, 1994; Neurodegenerative disease.(More)
The differentiation between progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and Parkinson's disease (PD) may be difficult, especially in the early stages of disease. Positron emission tomography potentially provides a tool for making such a distinction. To identify key features in the spatial distributions of cerebral glucose metabolism, 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)(More)
high-frequency ultrasound. Pre-operatively, we suspected that this most likely represented a benign smooth muscle tumor that had eroded through the iris root. Amyloid can occur as a localized ocular or widespread systemic process. Approximately 4% of amyloid deposits in the head and neck region involve the orbit. 7 Amyloid deposits in ophthalmic structures(More)
