BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To examine the distributions of proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) observed metabolites in Parkinson's disease (PD) throughout the whole brain. METHODS Twelve PD patients and 18 age-matched controls were studied using neuropsychological testing, MRI and volumetric MR spectroscopic imaging. Average values of signal(More)
Regression of herniated disc fragments with subsequent improvement in clinical symptoms has been reported in the lumbar and cervical spine. Such regressions in the thoracic spine are extremely rare. We report a case of a 38-year-old patient with thalassaemia who had regression of a large calcified herniated thoracic disc causing cord compression, with(More)
This article discusses infectious and inflammatory processes of the cervical spine. Major emphasis is placed on infectious discitis/osteomyelitis and epidural abscess, particularly the epidemiologic, bacteriologic, pathophysiologic, and clinical aspects, as well as the major role played by magnetic resonance imaging and other imaging modalities used in the(More)
We report a case of visual deterioration after Onyx HD 500 embolization of a left 7 mm superior hypophyseal artery (SHA) aneurysm. After the procedure, the patient experienced a right incongruous homonymous hemianopia, and MRI showed an infarct of the ipsilateral optic chiasm/tract but no evidence of aneurysm mass effect or embolic cortical infarcts. The(More)
The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) responsible for AIDS is reaching epidemic proportions in the United States and Europe. As new therapeutic modalities against HIV are uncovered and applied to treat prophylactically asymptomatic and therapeutically symptomatic HIV positive patients, imaging studies are no longer used just to characterize the(More)
