Several studies have described cranio-cerebral correlations in accordance with the 10-20 electrode placement system. These studies have made a significant contribution to human brain imaging techniques, such as near-infrared spectroscopy and trans-magnetic stimulation. With the recent development of high resolution EEG, an extension of the 10-20 system has(More)
This article presents a detailed description of an algorithm for the automatic detection of the mid-sagittal plane in three-dimensional (3-D) brain images. The algorithm seeks the plane with respect to which the image exhibits maximum symmetry. For a given plane, symmetry is measured by the cross-correlation between the image sections lying on either side.(More)
XML (eXtensible Markup Language) has recently emerged as the most relevant standardization e ort in the area of markup languages, and it is increasingly used as the language for information exchange over Web. In this context, developing an access control mechanism in terms of XML is an important step for Web information security. In this paper, we present(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate three-dimensional (3D) digital subtraction angiography (DSA) as a supplement to two-dimensional (2D) DSA in the endovascular treatment (EVT) of intracranial aneurysms. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 22 ruptured aneurysms, neck visualization, aneurysm shape, and EVT feasibility were analyzed at 2D DSA (anteroposterior, lateral, and rotational(More)
Deficiencies of the major dietary sources of methyl groups, methionine and choline, lead to the formation of liver cancer in rodents. The most widely investigated hypothesis has been that dietary methyl insufficiency results in abnormal DNA methylation. Vitamin B12 and folate also play important roles in DNA methylation since these two coenzymes are(More)
Brain imaging studies have revealed frontal disruption during aging and parieto-temporal disruption during Alzheimer's disease (AD). The present study aims at developing a specific method based on precise anatomical landmarks for assessing the integrity all along the course of the cingulum bundle, so as to determine if it presents the classical aging and AD(More)
To compare the temporal lobe white matter fiber bundles obtained by diffusion tensor imaging-based tractography to that by histology and dissection, and to study the interindividual variability of the obtained tracts. DTI (diffusion tensor imaging) acquisitions (30 directions) were obtained from nine healthy volunteers. Imaging post-processing was performed(More)
The purpose of this paper was to assess the relationship of the anatomical terms employed in the radiologic literature to the International Nomenclature derived from the Nomina Anatomica. A critical analysis was made of the anatomical terminology employed in three French and two American journals of radiology. In about 40% of the French journals, the(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Diagnosis of brain death requires confirmation of the clinical diagnosis by appropriate tests, generally electroencephalography (EEG) and angiography. The diagnostic limitations or logistical problems inherent to these tests indicate the need to develop other more appropriate methods. The results obtained with transcranial Doppler(More)
This article considers the various mechanisms of brain injury and specifies the most efficient radiologic technique for assessing patients, depending on clinical presentation. The brain injuries include either extracerebral and intracerebral lesions. The former require rapid diagnosis and therapy and the latter determine management in an intensive therapy,(More)
