The in vivo quantification of the benzodiazepine receptor concentration in human brain using positron emission tomography (PET) and 11C-flumazenil (11C-FMZ), is usually based on a three-compartment model and on PET curves measured in a small number of large regions of interest; however, it should be interesting to estimate the receptor concentration for(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Stent-assisted coiling has expanded the treatment of intracranial aneurysms, but the rates of procedure-related neurological complications and the incidence of angiographic aneurysm recurrence of this novel treatment are not yet well known. We present our experience with stent-assisted coiling with special emphasis on(More)
The goal of our prospective study was to compare quantitatively and qualitatively in-phase and opposed-phase T1-weighted breath-hold spoiled gradient-recalled-echo (GRE) MR imaging technique for imaging focal hepatic lesion. Thirty-eight patients with 53 focal hepatic lesions had in-phase (TR = 12.3 ms, TE = 4.2 ms) and opposed-phase (TR = 10.1 ms, TE = 1.9(More)
PURPOSE To retrospectively evaluate the immediate and long-term clinical results, as well as the angiographic results, of occlusion of middle cerebral artery (MCA) berry aneurysms with coils. MATERIALS AND METHODS This retrospective study had institutional review board approval, and informed consent was obtained. One hundred fifty-four MCA aneurysms in(More)
PURPOSE To retrospectively assess, with three-dimensional rotational angiography, the relationship between packing, complex coils, and angiographic recurrence of aneurysms treated with coils. MATERIALS AND METHODS Informed consent was waived by the institutional review board that approved the study. Results at follow-up angiography of 255 aneurysms in 223(More)
INTRODUCTION Endovascular treatment of ruptured wide-neck bifurcation aneurysms presents a challenge. While still under evaluation, the Woven Endobridge (WEB) aneurysm embolization system has so far shown promising results in the treatment of complex bifurcation aneurysms. We aimed to evaluate the feasibility and short-term follow-up of endovascular(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Flow disruption with the WEB device is a new technique for the endovascular treatment of wide-neck bifurcation aneurysms. To obtain precise data regarding the safety and efficacy of this treatment with high-quality methodology, the prospective French Observatory study was conducted. Analysis of these data is presented, including(More)
INTRODUCTION Tortuous vasculature is a cause of failure of endovascular treatment of intracranial vascular lesions. We report our experience of direct cervical accesses in patients in whom the arterial femoral route was not attainable. METHODS In this retrospective study, 42 direct punctures of the carotid or the vertebral arteries at the neck were(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of interventional palliative therapy by using chemoembolization on metastatic bone pain and tumor bulk in inoperable metastases where chemotherapy and radiotherapy had failed. Twenty-five patients (mean age: 59 years) underwent chemoembolization of symptomatic lytic lesions involving the spinal column(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Although stent-assisted intracranial procedures are becoming a routine clinical practice, there have been relatively few large studies published in the literature regarding the application of the balloon-expandable stent technology in the treatment of intracranial arterial diseases. In this report, the authors reviewed their(More)
