Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is the method of choice to evaluate the cranial nerves. Although the skull base foramina can be seen on CT, the nerves themselves can only be visualized in detail on MR. To see the different segments of nerves I to XII, the right sequences must be used. Detailed clinical information is needed by the radiologist so that a… (More)
The purpose of this study was to compare diffusion-weighted respiratory-triggered single-shot spin echo echoplanar imaging (SS SE-EPI) sequence using four b-values (b = 0, b = 20, b = 300, b = 800 s mm(-2)) and single-shot T2 weighted turbo spin echo (T2W SS TSE) in patients with focal liver lesions, with special interest in small (<10 mm) lesions.… (More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Only a few case reports and small series of intralabyrinthine schwannomas (ILSs) have been reported. The purpose of this study was to assess prevalence, MR characteristics, location, clinical management, and growth potential/patterns of ILSs in the largest series reported. MATERIALS AND METHODS Lesion localization, MR… (More)
Vertigo and dysequilibrium are a frequent cause of medical consultation. Clinical evaluation is essential. Some cases of vertigo are diagnosed clinically while others require imaging, sometimes emergently (suspected stroke). MRI is the imaging modality of choice to assess the labyrinth (labyrinthitis? labyrinthine hemorrhage?), internal auditory canal… (More)
We report the MR appearance of a rare case of Lyme disease presenting as diffuse leptomeningeal enhancement in the absence of parenchymal lesions. In the appropriate clinical setting, one should consider Lyme disease in the differential diagnosis of meningeal enhancement.
