PURPOSE To prospectively determine diagnostic performance and safety of contrast material-enhanced (CE) magnetic resonance (MR) angiography with 0.1 mmol per kilogram of body weight gadobenate dimeglumine for depiction of significant steno-occlusive disease (> or =51% stenosis) of renal arteries, with digital subtraction angiography (DSA) as reference(More)
BACKGROUND In virtual colonoscopy (VC) we are capable to assess all organs located between a diaphragm and pelvic bottom. This report provides a breakdown of extracolonic pathological findings in VC performed in standard indications. MATERIAL/METHODS We reviewed 71 consecutive VC (29 men and 42 women) performed using double-slice scanner General Electric(More)
CT perfusion is a new diagnostic method which enables imaging of the hemodynamics of tissues and organs. Until now most of the publications have been focused on the use of this technique to assess acute stroke. The aim of the presented work is to show the role of CT perfusion in the diagnosis of cerebral gliomas. These tumors are characterized by intensive(More)
BACKGROUND Magnetic resonance (MR) has become the most important imaging method in the diagnosis of intracranial tumours. However, conventional MR protocol often fails to obtain all morphological details which are necessary for precise planning of the treatment. Therefore, there are attempts of introducing other MR techniques, to gain new information(More)
The aim of project is to build a European network, which will integrate the research capabilities of a group of research institutes and university departments to provide an infrastructure for the highest quality research in psychiatric disorders, particularly in schizophrenia and schizoaffective disturbances. This network will integrate original computer(More)
OBJECTIVE This prospective multicenter intraindividual crossover study was designed to compare gadobenate dimeglumine and gadofosveset trisodium at approved doses with respect to the image quality and diagnostic performance of contrast-enhanced MR angiography (CE-MRA) in the detection of clinically relevant renal artery stenosis. SUBJECTS AND METHODS(More)
WHO has classified depression disturbances--due to widespread existence and serious medical consequences and resulting social and economic effects--as a priority health problem in all the developed countries. The significance of the depression disturbances is fully comparable to such illnesses as heart diseases, cancer and HIV infection. The research made(More)
