Breath-hold gadolinium-enhanced 3D MR urography was performed in five healthy volunteers. Enhanced 3D fast gradient-echo with a spectral IR pulse sequence was used for depicting MR urography, which was obtained 5-10 minutes after the injection of 2 ml of gadopentate dimeglumine (0.013-0.02 mmol/kg). The urinary tract was depicted as a high-signal intensity(More)
In this study, we elucidate a relationship between final outcome and changes in hepatic and splenic volume in patients with acute severe hepatitis. The subjects were 40 patients: 10 with sever acute hepatitis (prothrombin time < 40%) and 30 with fulminant hepatic failure (acute type in 12 and subacute type in 18). Liver and spleen volume were measured by CT(More)
PURPOSE Unusual pulmonary uptake of In-111 chloride in a patient with Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia and autoimmune hepatitis is described. METHOD In-111 chloride bone marrow scintigraphy was performed to evaluate the bone marrow activity associated with pancytopenia in a 56-year-old woman with autoimmune hepatitis. RESULTS An In-111 chloride bone(More)
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the usefulness of MR cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) in diagnosing Mirizzi syndrome and Lemmel syndrome. MRCP could show compressed common hepatic duct by enlarged gallbladder in Mirizzi syndrome. Periampulary duodenal diverticulum and compressed lower bile duct can be recognized clearly by MRCP after secretin(More)
Forty-four patients with hepatocellular carcinoma were treated with oily anticancer agent SMANCS dissolved in Lipiodol (SMANCS-LPD). The local response rate after the first arterial infusion in all patients was 39%, against 63% in 27 patients with Lipiodol accumulation occupying more than two third of tumor areas. Repeated arterial infusion of SMANCS-LPD(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of MR cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) for pancreas divism and anomalous arrangement of pancreaticobiliary ducts (APBD). In 214 patients, MRCP was performed. In 204 patients (94%), pancreaticobiliary ductal junction could be recognized. Pancreas divism was observed in 13 of 204 patients (6%), and APBD(More)
Fifty-five patients with hepatocellular carcinoma were treated with oily anticancer agent SMANCS dissolved in Lipiodol (SMANCS-LPD). The local response rate after the first arterial infusion in all patients was 39%, against 63% in 27 patients with Lipiodol accumulation occupying more than two thirds of tumor areas. The infusion therapy with SMANCS-LPD is(More)
