Continuous-wave Doppler sonography is a reliable method for detecting severe subclavian stenosis and occlusion as well as subclavian steal. Intermediate stages leading to subclavian steal can also be detected. These are characterized by a cardiac-phase-dependent alternating flow direction in the vertebral artery. Some cases of proximal subclavian or(More)

The uptake of MIBG, a scintigraphic agent widely used in the detection of APUD tumors, was studied with a pharmacological approach on an in vitro and an in vivo models. MIBG as well as norepinephrine (NE) was taken up by human blood platelets, a model for presynaptic nerve endings amine uptake, with a thermodependant mechanism. MIBG and NE uptake was(More)
Ultrasonography is considered to have limited application in respiratory diseases because air reflects sound waves. Twenty-four patients with radiologically confirmed pneumothorax and 100 healthy subjects underwent sonography. In all normal subjects, the hyperechoic pulmonary interface showed respiratory motions termed the "gliding sign" with some(More)
The relationship between intracranial hypertension and basilar artery blood flow is not well known, and it is not yet definite that the reduction of cerebral flow depends on cerebral perfusion pressure rather than microvessel compression. The purpose of the study described here was to investigate the effect of acute intracranial pressure on the basilar flow(More)
The recent introduction of tissue harmonic imaging could resolve the problems related to ultrasound in technically difficult patients by providing a marked improvement in image quality. Tissue harmonics are generated during the transmit phase of the pulse-echo cycle, that is, while the transmitted pulse propagates through tissue. Tissue harmonic images are(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Retinal vein occlusion (RVO) is one of the most frequent ocular vascular diseases and leads to severe vision impairment. Colour Doppler imaging (CDI) is the first method which allows distinct evaluation of arterial and venous velocities in RVO. CDI is valuable for diagnosis of RVO and shows the effects of isovolaemic haemodilution. Patients(More)

A study on the dynamic exploration of the auditory pathway is presented, in which technetium-99m hexamethylpropylene amine oxime single-photon emission computed tomography (SPET) was used in volunteers with normal hearing. Changes in 99mTc-HMPAO distribution were calculated using a region of interest/whole-brain count ratio. The results showed a temporal(More)

In order to investigate the mechanism of uptake of meta-iodobenzylguanidine (mIBG) by the adrenal glands, autoradiographic and pharmacologic studies were performed in mice and dogs receiving radioiodinated mIBG. In mice, on macroautoradiography of whole body sections 48 h after125I-mIBG, most of the radioactivity was focused in the adrenal glands. On(More)
Cerebral hypoxia-ischemia (HI) is an important cause of perinatal brain damage in the term newborn. The areas most affected are the parasagittal regions of the cerebral cortex and, in severe situations, the basal ganglia. The aim of this study was to show that the newborn piglet model can be used to produce neuropathology resulting from moderate HI insult(More)
Many Doppler imaging studies have been performed in recent years in a large number of ocular disorders because of improvements in the Doppler equipment used for detecting and measuring the low blood-flow velocities that are a requisite for the quantitative evaluation of blood flow in the orbital vessels. The ophthalmic artery, central retinal artery and(More)
