OBJECT In this study the authors examined how to differentiate radiation necrosis from recurrent metastatic brain tumor following stereotactic radiosurgery by using positron emission tomography (PET) with L-[methyl-11C]methionine (MET). METHODS In 21 adult patients with suspected recurrent metastatic brain tumor or radiation injury, MET-PET scans were(More)
OBJECT Functional hemispherectomy, itself a modification of anatomical hemispherectomy, has been further modified to a less invasive method (hemispherotomy), in which cortical resection is minimized and the rest of the affected hemisphere is functionally isolated by transecting its projection and commissural fibers. Although descriptions of three different(More)
Significant errors are introduced into the measurement of brain tissue water by the specific gravity technique when the edema fluid contains protein. Protein adds to the tissue solids, increasing the density of the tissue, and masks the proportional increase of brain water. Existing equations relating measured specific gravity and tissue water are not(More)
The title compound, Nd(3)Fe(5)O(12) (NdIG), has an iron garnet structure. One of the Fe atoms is coordinated by six O atoms in a slightly distorted octa-hedral geometry and has site symmetry. The other Fe atom is coordinated by four O atoms in a slightly distorted tetra-hedral geometry and has site symmetry. The FeO(6) octa-hedron and FeO(4) tetra-hedron(More)
The crystal structure of EuRu(4)P(12) is isotypic with filled skutterudite structures of rare earth transition metal poly-phosphides: RFe(4)P(12) (R = Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm and Eu), RRu(4)P(12) (R = La, Ce, Pr and Nd) and ROs(4)P(12) (R = La, Ce, Pr and Nd). The Ru cation is coordinated by six P anions in a distorted octa-hedral manner. The partially occupied Eu(More)
The title compound, penta-iron tripraseodymium dodeca-oxide (PrIG), has an iron garnet structure. There are two Fe site symmetries. One of the Fe atoms is coordinated by six O atoms, forming a slightly distorted octa-hedron, and has site symmetry. The other Fe atom is coordinated by four O atoms, forming a slightly distorted tetra-hedron, and has site(More)
X-ray atomic orbital (XAO) analysis revealed that at both temperatures the electrons are transferred from B 2p(x)(= p(y)) to Ce 5d and 4f orbitals. At 340 K 5d(j = 5/2)Gamma(8) orbitals are occupied partially, but 4f(j = 5/2)Gamma(8) orbitals are more populated than 4f(j = 5/2)Gamma(7) orbitals, in contrast to our observation at 430 K [Makita et al. (2007).(More)
Neodymium strontium manganese oxide with ideal composition Nd(0.5)Sr(0.5)MnO(3) was reported to have two different structure models. In one model, the x coordinate of an O atom is at x > 1/2, while in the other model the x-coordinate of this atom is at x < 1/2. Difference-density maps around this O atom obtained from the current redetermination clearly show(More)
In contrast with previous structural studies of ytterbium trirhodium boride, YbRh(3)B, that suggest a boron deficiency, the current redetermination of the crystal structure of YbRh(3)B revealed instead a rhodium deficiency with a refined composition of YbRh(2.67 (2))B. In the ABX(3) perovskite-type structure, Yb, B and Rh are located on the A, B and X(More)
