METHODS Starting in May 2009, searches of the following databases were undertaken: Medline (1966 to April 2009), Embase (1980 to April 2009), the Cochrane library (1800 to(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging is a noninvasive method of evaluating embryonic development. Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), based on the directional diffusivity of water molecules, is an established method of evaluating tissue structure. Yet embryonic motion degrades the in vivo acquisition of long-duration DTI. We used a dual-cooling technique to avoid motion(More)
Treatment for chronic male genital lymphedema (GL) is limited. No standard treatment or validated instrument to assess GL is available. The aim of this study was to explore whether magnetic resonance lymphography (MRL) could be used to assess GL, select proper treatment for patients, and monitor postoperative progress.This is a retrospective analysis of a(More)
Accurately delineating the myocardium from cardiac T2 and delayed enhanced (DE) MRI is a prerequisite to identifying and quantifying the edema and infarcts. The automatic delineation is however challenging due to the heterogeneous intensity distribution of the myocardium. In this paper, we propose a fully automatic method, which combines the complementary(More)
