Computed tomography (CT) is an established tool for the diagnosis of ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke. Nonenhanced CT can help exclude hemorrhage and detect "early signs" of infarction but cannot reliably demonstrate irreversibly damaged brain tissue in the hyperacute stage of ischemic stroke. Further evaluation of patients with ischemic stroke should include(More)
PURPOSE A study was performed to assess the stimulation threshold for healthy adults using sinusoidally oscillating gradients. METHOD One hundred thirteen healthy adults were examined in the study. ECG and physiological parameters were measured. All measurements were performed of both the head and the abdomen. The subjects were measured in the supine(More)
Hintergrund. Die relativ neue Methode des interaktiven “direkten Volume Renderings” (dVR) erlaubt erstmals eine schnelle, direkte 3D-Visualisierung von Spiral-CT-Datensätzen ohne manuelle, explizite Segmentierung. In dieser Studie sollte die Eignung dieses Verfahrens zur Darstellung der Felsenbeinstrukturen untersucht werden. Patienten und Methode. Bei 10(More)
Computed tomography (CT) is the modality of choice for detailed imaging of the bony labyrinth. Usually, information about the complex three-dimensional anatomic structures of the inner ear is presented as two-dimensional section images. Interactive direct volume rendering is a powerful method for visualization of the labyrinth. Unlike other visualization(More)
Purpose: In a clinical study 35 patients with intracranial aneurysms were examined using CT-angiography, MR-angiography (MRA) and digital subtraction angiography (DSA). The aim of the study was to establish the ability of noninvasive techniques to detect intracranial aneurysms. Material and methods: The CT examinations were performed using a spiral CT(More)
The preoperative localization of pharmaco-resistant focal epilepsies before surgery and the prognosis concerning seizure outcome are both of importance. In addition to conventional MRI diagnostics for the detection of small epileptogenic lesions, proton magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (HMR spectroscopy) can be useful for assessing the bilaterality(More)
The aim of this study was to compare a new MRI method for detecting the existence of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) fistulae, i. e. MR cisternography, with CT cisternography. In a prospective study, 30 patients with post-traumatic CSF fistulae were examined. The MR examinations were performed with a 1.0-T whole-body MR system, using two T2*-weighted sequences, a(More)
An anatomical study was carried out to determine the extent to which magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) could delineate inner ear structures. Anatomical preparations of human petrous temporal bone were examined and compared with the results of MRI in 20 healthy subjects to see whether the structures of the inner ear could be visualized. Imaging of the(More)
Conventional myelography was compared with a new type of MR technique using a fat-suppressing 3D fast imaging with steady precession (FISP) sequence for diagnosis of the lumbar root compression syndrome. 80 patients with discogenic disease in the lumbar spine were examined with a 1.0-T whole-body MR system (Siemens Magnetom Impact, Erlangen, Germany).
