PURPOSE To distinguish probable Alzheimer disease (AD) from other dementias (ODs) and normality in the elderly. MATERIALS AND METHODS A double-blind trial of proton magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy was performed, principally in gray matter, in the occipital cortex of 114 patients with dementia (AD [n = 65], OD [n = 39], or frontal lobe dementia [FLD](More)
We report two cases of spontaneous bladder rupture. Preoperative diagnosis was difficult and the correct diagnosis was made at surgery. Reviewing the initial abdominopelvic CT of our second patient, the bladder wall defect and blood attenuation near the bladder were observed. These findings were consistent with the operative findings, and would have led to(More)
To compare indirect magnetic resonance (MR) arthrography findings in patients with rotator cuff tears with and without symptoms. Indirect MR arthrography results of 15 asymptomatic and 23 symptomatic rotator cuff tears were retrospectively reviewed, comparing the type and size of tears and amount of subacrominal-subdeltoid bursal fluid. There were 14(More)
PURPOSE The purpose to this study is to identify correlations between pathology and dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and to assess the utility of this technique in the evaluation of radiation response for head and neck cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS MRI was prospectively performed after radiotherapy in 27 patients with various(More)
We studied visualization of the subcoracoid bursa by conducting a retrospective analysis of the MR arthrograms of 101 shoulders with surgical confirmation. MR arthrography showed the subcoracoid bursa in 28 shoulders, among which the bursa was revealed by inadvertent direct injection of contrast material into the bursa in 10 shoulders. Of the remaining 18(More)
We present a case in which the accidental ingestion of a toothpick caused duodenal perforation and small intestinal obstruction. A 58-year-old man visited our emergency room with acute abdominal pain. Computed tomography (CT) showed obstructive ileus as well as a foreign body penetrating the duodenum, which was identified as a toothpick and removed(More)
