The Diagnostic Accuracy of Non-Echo-Planar Diffusion-Weighted Imaging in the Detection of Residual and/or Recurrent Cholesteatoma of the Temporal Bone
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Non-EPI DWI is a promising alternative to second-look surgery for the detection of residual and/or recurrent cholesteatoma. We evaluated the diagnostic accuracy, expressed asExpand

Incidental Findings on Brain Imaging in the General Pediatric Population.
Brain MRI in 3966 children from the population-based Generation R Study (mean age, 10.1 years) revealed incidental findings in 25.6%. Most findings did not require neurosurgical intervention, but 7Expand

Cervical ribs and other abnormalities of the vertebral pattern in children with esophageal atresia and anorectal malformations
Background In mammals the vertebral column has a constant pattern, particularly in the cervical region, which is likely the result of stabilizing selection. The prevalence of cervical ribs andExpand

Dynamic Contrast-Enhanced MRI Assessment of Hyperemic Fractional Microvascular Blood Plasma Volume in Peripheral Arterial Disease: Initial Findings
Objectives The aim of the current study was to describe a method that assesses the hyperemic microvascular blood plasma volume of the calf musculature. The reversibly albumin binding contrast agentExpand

Does the Addition of a “Black Bone” Sequence to a Fast Multisequence Trauma MR Protocol Allow MRI to Replace CT after Traumatic Brain Injury in Children?
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Head CT is the current neuroimaging tool of choice in acute evaluation of pediatric head trauma. The potential cancer risks of CT-related ionizing radiation should limit itsExpand

MACF1 Mutations Encoding Highly Conserved Zinc-Binding Residues of the GAR Domain Cause Defects in Neuronal Migration and Axon Guidance.
To date, mutations in 15 actin- or microtubule-associated genes have been associated with the cortical malformation lissencephaly and variable brainstem hypoplasia. During a multicenter review, weExpand

The effect of early fusion of the spheno-occipital synchondrosis on midface hypoplasia and obstructive sleep apnea in patients with Crouzon syndrome.
INTRODUCTION The investigators hypothesized that patients with Crouzon syndrome and premature fusion of the spheno-occipital synchondrosis (SOS) more often have, or have more severe midfaceExpand
