In a landmark 1966 study, widespread cerebral abnormalities were discovered at histopathologic examination of autopsied brains from patients with long-standing temporal lobe epilepsy. In the brains diagnosed with mesial temporal sclerosis (MTS), these abnormalities involved not only the hippocampus but also other structures of the limbic system and medial(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The Cholesterol Lowering Atherosclerosis Study has reported significant reduction of coronary artery disease and of carotid arterial intima-media thickness (IMT) at 2 and 4 years with colestipol/niacin therapy. We now report on treatment effects on carotid IMT at 6 months and 1 year. METHODS One hundred eighty-eight nonsmoking men,(More)
OBJECTIVE Our goal was to determine the influence of chondrocalcinosis on MR imaging in the detection of meniscal tears. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective review was performed of knee MR imaging and arthroscopy records from two university hospitals between 1996 and 1998. Seventy individuals had radiographic evidence of chondrocalcinosis and underwent(More)
Chondroblastomas are benign cartilaginous lesions; however, intervention is necessary to stop progression and alleviate pain. The authors evaluated three patients in whom minimally invasive percutaneous radio-frequency heat ablation was used to treat pathologically proven chondroblastoma to determine whether this treatment demonstrated long-term success.(More)
The properties of liquid-ordered, solid-ordered, and liquid-disordered phases were investigated by steady-state fluorescence spectroscopy in liposomes composed of mixtures of dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine and cholesterol (0-40 mol %) as a function of temperature (24-51 degrees C). The fluorescent probes used (bis-pyrene, nystatin, prodan, and merocyanine)(More)
The radiation transmission characteristics of 2-mm-thick aluminum front plates and 2-mm-thick carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic front plates for rapid film changers were compared. While the carbon-fiber plates were found to be intrinsically more radiolucent than the aluminum plates, the decrease in patient exposure with the carbon-fiber plates was only(More)
