Artifacts related to magnetic susceptibility differences between bone and soft tissue are prevalent on gradient-recalled echo images, particularly when long echo delay times are used. These susceptibility artifacts spatially distort and artifactually enlarge bone contours. This can alter the apparent shape of the spinal canal and exaggerate the degree of(More)
Five cases of ipsilateral pupillary dilatation that developed during local intraarterial infusion of papaverine are reported. All patients were being treated for symptomatic vasospasm secondary to subarachnoid hemorrhage. In each case, the tip of the infusion catheter was positioned in the internal carotid artery in close proximity to the ostium of the(More)
Foci of high signal in the cerebral white matter are common incidental findings on MR images of the brain of control subjects or patients with a variety of diseases. Although the number of foci has been reported to correlate with age and several risk factors, the degree of observer variability in quantifying foci has not been reported. We used kappa(More)
Five different theories have been proposed to explain the high-intensity signals within the posterior pituitary fossa seen on MR: (1) a paramagnetic effect of phospholipids in the posterior lobe, (2) lipid in pituicytes in the posterior lobe of the pituitary, (3) neurosecretory granules in the posterior lobe, (4) fat within the sella but outside the(More)
Eleven patients with known or suspected optic nerve lesions and eight normal subjects were examined with spin-echo technique at 1.5 T with unenhanced T1-weighted imaging, IV gadopentetate-dimeglumine-enhanced T1-weighted imaging, and enhanced T1-weighted imaging with fat suppression. Two pathologically proved and four presumed optic nerve meningiomas(More)
With T1-weighted gradient recalled echo (GRE) MR images and flow compensation, we studied the superior sagittal sinus in 3 normal volunteers and 3 patients with sinus occlusion. In these images, sites of patency of the superior sagittal sinus were identified due to the high signal intensity of the normal sinus. Tumor invading the sinus was nearly isointense(More)
BACKGROUND Cirsoid aneurysms are uncommon arteriovenous fistulas of the scalp. Surgery for these lesions can be difficult; transarterial embolization is rarely curative, while embolization of the venous pouch with permanent agents usually necessitates subsequent surgical removal of the embolic material. The ideal embolic agent would be one that is safe and(More)
Matt Weber for help with data analysis, Emily Kalenik and Lauren Hendrix for help with data collection, members of the Thompson-Schill lab for generous feedback and discussion, and two anonymous reviewers for comments on an earlier version of this manuscript. 2 Abstract Many features can describe a concept, but only some features define a concept in that(More)
BACKGROUND A central retinal artery occlusion is a potentially blinding retinal vascular event with no effective treatment regimen available. Recently, a few reports have described improved vision in eyes with central retinal artery occlusions after selective fibrinolytic therapy followed by long-term systemic anticoagulation. Acceptance of this treatment,(More)
