Afferent and efferent connections of the thalamic eminence of the axolotl were determined using the fluorescent compound DiI as a tracer. The thalamic eminence is connected reciprocally with a number of telencephalic and diencephalic areas, particularly with the medial pallium, the amygdala and the preoptic region. Efferent connections are widespread(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES To compare the diagnostic accuracy and image quality of 2 reconstruction algorithms (multisegment and halfscan) for computed tomography (CT) coronary angiography in patients without beta-blocker medication. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-four patients with 42 significant coronary stenoses in 136 main coronary branches were examined(More)
In the rat pineal gland noradrenaline is released in large quantities from sympathetic nerve endings at the onset of darkness, thereby driving rhythmic melatonin synthesis with elevated levels at night-time. Upon release, noradrenaline interacts with postsynaptic beta1-adrenergic receptors to activate the cyclic AMP signalling pathway. Well characterized(More)
The study investigates the performance of a dedicated whole-body magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) interpretation software with regard to diagnostic efficiency using quantitative and qualitative parameters. Forty-eight oncologic patients underwent whole-body computed tomography (WB-CT) and whole-body magnetic resonance imaging (WB-MRI). In a quantitative(More)
A case of congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries in a 64-old-woman is presented. Diagnosis was missed by invasive angiocardiography. Electrocardiographic-gated multislice computed tomography not only demonstrated switching of the aortic root and pulmonary trunk but clearly identified fine morphologic details of the cardiac chambers,(More)
