Conventional model-based or statistical analysis methods for functional MRI (fMRI) suffer from the limitation of the assumed paradigm and biased results. Temporal clustering methods, such as fuzzy clustering, can eliminate these problems but are difficult to find activation occupying a small area, sensitive to noise and initial values, and computationally(More)
BACKGROUND In tuberous sclerosis (TS), tubers usually involve the white matter. Diffusion tensor (DT) images are used to demonstrate white-matter tracts. OBJECTIVE To determine the changes in DT indices in supratentorial tubers and associated changes in the white-matter tracts adjacent to tubers in patients with TS. MATERIALS AND METHODS The DT imaging(More)
The authors have developed an automated algorithm for segmentation of magnetic resonance images (MRI) of the human brain. They investigated the quantitative analysis of tissue-specific human motor response through an approach combining gradient echo functional MRI and automated segmentation analysis. Fifteen healthy volunteers, placed in a 1.5 T clinical MR(More)
Choroid plexus papillomas (CPPs) represent a relatively rare type of intracranial tumors, most of which are located in the intraventricular region. CPPs located primarily in the extraventricular region are extremely rare. Here, we report a case of CPP located at the right cerebellomedullary cistern; this tumor arose at the foramen of Luschka of the fourth(More)
Spinal schwannomas are benign tumors arising from spinal nerve root sheaths [1]. Intraspinal nerve sheath tumors are generally slow growing and are diagnosed after causing symptoms such as back pain and progressive neurological symptoms [2]. These intradural extramedullary tumors are most common during the fourth to the sixth decade of life [3]. They rarely(More)
The neck connects the head with the trunk, and is easily injuried due to trauma. Herein we reported a case with diffuse neck swelling after car accident. She suffered from progressive dyspnea and cyanosis 3 hours after the accident and needed airway maintenance with tracheostomy. A plain lateral radi-ograph and computed tomography scan of the neck showed(More)
