BACKGROUND Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging has been described as the most important medical innovation in the last 25 years. Over 80 million MR procedures are now performed each year and on average 2.3% (95% confidence interval: 2.0 to 2.5%) of all patients scheduled for MR imaging suffer from claustrophobia. Thus, prevention of MR imaging by claustrophobia(More)
BACKGROUND Claustrophobia is a common problem precluding MR imaging. The purpose of the present study was to assess whether a short-bore or an open magnetic resonance (MR) scanner is superior in alleviating claustrophobia. METHODS Institutional review board approval and patient informed consent were obtained to compare short-bore versus open MR. From June(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of the present study was to compare the image quality of spinal magnetic resonance (MR) imaging performed on a high-field horizontal open versus a short-bore MR scanner in a randomized controlled study setup. METHODS Altogether, 93 (80% women, mean age 53) consecutive patients underwent spine imaging after random assignement to a(More)
INTRODUCTION Chronic daily headache (CDH) is a chronic painful clinical condition that is frequently found in neurological practice. Diagnosis is clinical and the therapeutic approach is complex. Its mechanism of production is still not altogether clear, but a genetic component is acknowledged as a predisposing factor. Numerous areas are involved in the(More)
We aimed to introduce an approach for image-guided positioning of electrodes for irreversible electroporation (IRE) in patients with prostate cancer using a magnetic resonance imaging-transrectal ultrasonography (MRI-TRUS) fusion technique. In 10 consecutive patients with biopsy-proven Gleason score ≤3+4 prostate cancer, 19 G electrodes were inserted into(More)
Purpose To analyze claustrophobia during magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and to explore the potential of the 26-item claustrophobia questionnaire (CLQ) (range, 0-4) as a screening tool in patients scheduled for MR imaging. Materials and Methods The study received institutional review board approval, and patients in the CLQ cohort provided informed consent.(More)
