OBJECTIVE To explore the clinical application of 64-slice spiral CT in the diagnosis of the Tetralogy of Fallot. METHODS Eighteen patients with diagnosed Tetralogy of Fallot underwent cardiac CT angiography with 64-slice CT (CTA). Two- and three-dimensional images were used for diagnosing in all cases by means of MPR (coronal, sagital and oblique), cMPR,(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the functional brain localization with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) after acupuncturing the Yuan-Source and He-Sea acupoints of Stomach Meridian of Foot-Yangming (ST). METHODS The study was performed in 30 healthy volunteers who underwent acupuncture at Yuan-Source acupoint (Chongyang, ST42) and He-Sea acupoint (Zusanli, ST36) (ST(More)
BACKGROUND Doppler color echocardiography is a common method for detecting coronary artery lesions in patients with Kawasaki disease (KD). However, the diagnostic accuracy for the whole coronary artery lesions is limited. The purpose of this study was to compare the diagnostic value of dual-source computed tomography (DSCT) and Doppler color(More)
To compare the areas of human liver horizontal sections with computed tomography (CT) images and to evaluate whether the subsegments determined by CT are consistent with the actual anatomy. Six human cadaver livers were made into horizontal slices with multislice spiral CT three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction was used during infusion process. Each liver(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical application of multi-planar reformation (MPR) for the stapes with multi-slice spinal thin-section CT in the patients with disorder of stapes before prosthetic ossicular reconstruction and their impact on surgical decision. METHODS Axial CT scanning of temporal bone was undergone in 50 volunteers. Multiplan reformatted(More)
OBJECTIVE To discuss the value of multi-slice CT dynamic enhancement scan in the diagnosis and treatment of colonic lymphomas. METHODS 16 patients with colonic lymphomas underwent multi-slice CT dynamic enhancement scans, images of axial and reconstructive images of VR, MPR and CTVE were analyzed, patients were respectively diagnosed. RESULTS(More)
BACKGROUND Accurate views of the head and neck vessels, tumor angiogenesis and the relationship of tumor and the surrounding blood vessels are especially crucial to carotid body tumor (CBT) patients. The aim of this study was to explore the value of dual-source CT (DSCT) cerebral and carotid angiography in CBT diagnosis. METHODS DSCT cerebral and carotid(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the application of prospective ECG-triggering dual-source CT (DSCT) angiography in infants and children with complex congenital heart disease (CHD) compared with transthoracic echocardiography (TTE). METHODS Eighty-seven patients (mean age: 28 months, range 3 months to 6 years; male 46; mean weight: 15 kg) underwent prospective(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the clinical value of 64-slice spiral CT for spinal structure assessment in elderly patients with osteoporosis. METHODS The computed radiography (CR) films and 64-slice spiral CT isotropic scanning images of 40 patients who had been diagnosed as osteoporosis by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) were retrospectively analyzed.
