OBJECTIVE This study was conducted in order to test the hypothesis that proton MR spectroscopic (1H MRS) profile of Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON) mutation carriers group (including both symptomatic and asymptomatic) differs from group of healthy individuals and to determine metabolite or ratio that contributes most to differentiation.

AIM The aim of this study was to determine the bilateral distribution of proton metabolites along the long axis of the hippocampus. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-one healthy volunteers were examined using a 1.5T magnetic resonance imaging system, using proton three-dimensional spectroscopic imaging (3D CSI) of the left and the right hippocampus separately.(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM A vast majority of current radiogical techniques, such as computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have great potencial of vizualization and delineation of cerebrospinal fuid spaces morphology within cerebral aqueduct. The aim of this study was to determine the possibilities of two differently acquired FISP (Fast(More)
INTRODUCTION Foetal tumours are relatively rare; prenatal diagnosis enables additional diagnostics, and thus the decision on the continuation of pregnancy and planning of delivery. The paper presents prenatal ultrasound diagnostics of foetal head tumour with additionally analyzed magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). CASE OUTLINE On ultrasound imaging, in a(More)
Lymphangiomas are benign vascular malformations of the lymphatic system and most commonly present in the neck area. Large lymphangiomas may compress and/or displace the larynx, trachea and esophagus and cause serious respiratory and feeding problems in neonates. Prenatal therapy could eliminate the risks of the mentioned complications. Prenatal therapy may(More)
INTRODUCTION L-2-Hydroxyglutaric aciduria (L-2-HGA) is an autosomal recessive neurometabolic disease with a slowly progressive course and characterized by increased levels of hydroxyglutaric acid in urine, cerebrospinal fluid and plasma. In this condition clinical features mainly consist of mental deterioration, ataxia and motor deficits. CASE OUTLINE The(More)
Since the discovery of X-rays by Wilhelm Conrad Röentgen at the end of the 19th century, diagnostic imaging techniques have been continously improved by technological advances, bringing radiological diagnosis into the very center of modern medicine. Nowadays, it is hard to imagine therapy planning without previous radiological examination. Great advances in(More)
Transient cortical blindness is reported to occur in 0.3% to 1% of cerebral angiography procedures. It develops within minutes of contrast medium injection and lasts for up to several days. We report a long episode of transient cortical blindness in a 17-year-old boy with cerebellar haemangioblastoma, which started during the preoperative vertebral(More)
BACKGROUND Pattern of brain asymmetries varies with handedness, gender, age, and with variety of genetic and social factors. Large-scale neuroimaging analyses can optimize the detection of asymmetric features and confirm the factors that might modulate pattern of brain asymmetries. We attempted to evaluate eventual differences between genders in hemodynamic(More)
Cerebellar involvement in cognitive functions has been revealed in numerous anatomical, clinical and neuroimaging studies and several hypotheses about potential the role of the cerebellum in higher level brain function have been established. The aim of this study was to show involvement of the cerebellum in simple cognitive tasks. For this matter, we(More)
