OBJECTIVE Three-dimensional time-of-flight magnetic resonance angiography (3D TOF MRA) has been wildly used in the diagnosis of intracranial artery diseases, but it only shows the arterial lumen and does not delineate the vessel wall. The aim of this study was to assess whether high resolution cross sectional magnetic resonance imaging (HRMRI) could(More)
In this paper, we present a new segmentation evaluation method that can simulate radiologist's subjective assessment of 3D tumor segmentation in CT images. The method uses a new metric defined as a linear combination of a set of commonly used objective metrics. The weighing parameters of the linear combination are determined by maximizing the rank(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the performance of dual-source computed tomography (DSCT) for the visualization of the coronary arteries in a population with atrial fibrillation (AF) compared to single-source CT (SSCT) and to explore the impact of patients' heart rate (HR) on image quality (IQ) and reconstruction timing. METHODS Thirty consecutive patients (11(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the image quality and visibility of arteries of 64-slice spiral coronary CT angiography (CTA) with those of 16-slice spiral coronary CTA, and to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of 64-slice spiral CT for the assessment of coronary artery stenosis. METHODS Totally 100 patients (Group A) with suspected coronary artery diseases (CAD)(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) imaging between 16-slice spiral CT and 64-slice spiral CT. METHODS Totally 27 patients with CABG received multi-slice spiral CT imaging and the results were retrospectively analyzed. Among them, 8 patients received 16-slice spiral CT scanning, 19 patients received 64-slice spiral CT scanning. (More)
BACKGROUND Intravascular NK-cell lymphoma (IVNKL) is an extremely rare variant of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. To our knowledge, there are only a few cases reported in the English literature. Here, a case of a 29-year-old male with IVNKL involving the skin of the trunk and 4 extremities and liver is presented. A comprehensive literature review is undertaken to(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the scan technique and image quality of coronary angiography with dual source computed tomography (CT) without oral metoprolol preparation. METHODS Plain and enhanced dual source CT coronary angiography without oral metoprolol preparation was prospectively performed in 600 patients. Calcium scoring with plain scan images as well as(More)
UNLABELLED Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) involving the cardiovascular system is extremely rare; to our knowledge, there are only 9 cases in the literature. Here, a case of a 60-year-old male with RDD involving the right atrium is presented. A comprehensive literature review was undertaken to summarize the clinical and pathologic features of this disorder. (More)
