BACKGROUND Recent guidelines on iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) have confirmed the aetiological role of Helicobacter pylori (H pylori), but the relationship still remains controversial. 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)
OBJECTIVE To quantitatively assess the imaging characteristics of sellar lesion in dual-energy computed tomography (CT) imaging for differentiation of sellar meningiomas and pituitary adenomas during the arterial phase (AP) and venous phase (VP). MATERIALS AND METHODS 51 patients with sellar/parasellar tumors (33 macroadenomas and 18 meningiomas) were(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)
OBJECTIVES To assess the diagnostic value of dual energy spectral CT imaging for colorectal cancer grading using the quantitative iodine density measurements in both arterial phase (AP) and venous phase (VP). METHODS 81 colorectal cancer patients were divided into two groups based on their pathological findings: a low grade group including well (n = 13)(More)
BACKGROUND The management for degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis with spinal stenosis remains controversial. Reduction of lumbar spondylolisthesis has been performed via numerous techniques. Most of them need extra reduction assembly. METHODS In this retrospective analysis, 27 patients of degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis with spinal stenosis(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)
