OBJECTIVE To evaluate the visualization rate and describe the morphologic pattern of the normal appendix on multidetector CT (MDCT) by using multiplanar reformation display. METHODS We conducted a retrospective evaluation of the normal appendix with MDCT in 108 consecutive patients. A radiologist blinded to patient surgery history reviewed multiplanar(More)
AIMS Population aging is burdening the society globally, and the evaluation of functional networks is the key toward understanding cognitive changes in normal aging. However, the effect of age on default mode subnetworks has not been documented well, and age-related changes in many resting-state networks remain debatable. The purpose of this study was to(More)
The ectopic eruption of the teeth into the nasal cavity is a rare phenomenon. We report cases: two involving the nasal cavity and one involving the hard palate and complicated by Aspergillus rhinitis. We describe the clinical and radiologic presentation of these cases and discuss their etiology, complications, diagnosis, and treatment.
We investigated the time it took to develop fatty liver and changes in serum aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase levels in patients with breast cancer treated with adjuvant tamoxifen. Liver sonography to detect fatty liver and measurement of serum aspartate and alanine aminotransferase levels were performed regularly for patients with(More)
Dacryocystoceles, either unilateral or bilateral, occur when the nasolacrimal pathway is obstructed. They are the second most common cause of neonatal nasal obstruction after choanal atresia [1]. Obliteration of the nasal passage can occur when dacryocystoceles extend intranasally and can cause airway obstruction in neonates who breathe through their nose.(More)

The length of the ossified part of the long bones of the upper (humerus) and lower limb (femur) as well as the axial length (that is, height) of the vertebral body of L1 were measured on a plain supine radiograph in 347 newborn babies (228 males, 119 females) with the gestational age (GA) from 26 to 41 weeks. All were admitted to the neonatal intensive care(More)
Polygonatum alte-lobatum Hayata, a rhizomatous perennial herb, belongs to the Liliaceae family and is endemic to Taiwan. We investigated the antioxidant and anti-fatigue activities of P. alte-lobatum in exercised rats. Levels of polyphenols, flavonoids and polysaccharides and 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) free-radical scavenging activity were(More)
