Twenty-four patients with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy were examined with serial magnetic resonance imaging up to 4 years of age. Magnetic resonance imaging studies were performed in the neonatal period, at the fourth month and the fourth year of age, and the findings were compared with the patients' neurodevelopmental outcome at the fourth year of age.(More)
Joubert syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by hypotonia, ataxia, episodic hyperpnoea, psychomotor delay, abnormal ocular movements, and molar tooth sign on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This syndrome is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait, but the molecular basis and specific chromosomal locus have not yet been identified. MRI features are(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate facial pain clinically and to determine the frequency with which structural lesions were diagnosed by means of magnetic resonance imaging in a sample of patients with facial pain, including refractory trigeminal neuralgia and atypical facial pain. Fifty-two patients with facial pain were examined clinically, and(More)
Although radiological findings of cerebral hemiatrophy (Dyke-Davidoff-Masson Syndrome) are well known, there is no systematic study about the gender and the affected side in this syndrome. Brain images in 26 patients (mean aged 11) with cerebral hemiatrophy were retrospectively reviewed. Nineteen patients (73.5%) were male and seven patients (26.5%) were(More)
OBJECTIVE It is often useful to know the exact volume of the liver, such as in monitoring the effects of a disease, treatment, dieting regime, training program or surgical application. Some non-invasive methodologies have been previously described which estimate the volume of the liver. However, these preliminary techniques need special software or skilled(More)
OBJECTIVE The role of computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the diagnosis of parotid tumors was investigated. METHODS Forty patients with the clinical suspicion of a parotid mass underwent both CT and MRI of the parotid region. Two radiologists independently assessed the CT and MRI results with respect to tumor localization,(More)
We report a case of bilateral neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS). Electrophysiological examination suggested the presence of bilateral lower brachial plexus neuropathy. Radiography showed rudimentary bilateral cervical ribs. In the cases reported in the literature to date, the clinical findings are typically unilateral despite the common presence of(More)
PURPOSE To determine the value of magnetization transfer (MT) imaging in the evaluation of acute plaques, which cause clinical findings in the brain magnetic resonance (MR) images of patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, and its correlation with the clinical findings. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty patients with relapsing-remitting multiple(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) internal derangement and lateral pterygoid muscle (LPM) by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In this study, 115 subjects with TMJ internal derangement (total 230 TMJs) and 21 subjects without clinical symptoms (total 42 TMJs) were included. TMJ disc position and(More)
Although the subclavian vein is often used for placement of double-lumen hemodialysis catheters, the risk factors for complications for the patients with chronic renal failure are underestimated. We report a case of a patient with chronic renal failure in whom brachial plexus injury was caused by both a compressive hematoma and direct insertion of a needle(More)
