T2 time constants were measured within the caudate nucleus, putamen, globus pallidus, cortical gray matter, subcortical white matter, and optic radiation. These(More)

In this study, the authors review their experience with atypical patterns at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. They evaluated the T1-weighted and gradient-echo MR images of(More)

Sixteen weeks later telephone follow-up determined compliance. A total of 56 (26%) had complied.
