PURPOSE This phase I study was designed to demonstrate the feasibility, safety, efficacy and predictability of percutaneous cryosurgery, guided under magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, in the treatment of invasive breast carcinoma. PATIENTS AND METHODS Under the guidance of near-real-time T1-weighted FSE images of a 0.5-T open-configuration MR system,(More)
PURPOSE To compare the acromiohumeral distance (AHD) of both shoulders in subjects with a unilateral shoulder impingement syndrome (SIS) and healthy subjects in a seated position during free shoulder movements of large amplitude. MATERIALS AND METHODS Using a 0.5-Tesla SIGNA-SP/i trade mark open-configuration magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system, the(More)
This paper describes a simple, yet efficient method for modelling complex musculo-skeletal structures in motion. The proposed approach contains three main modules: segmentation, 3D reconstruction, and feature extraction. The segmentation module integrates region and edge information in a coherent manner. The 3D reconstruction technique is based on(More)
The practice of crushing drugs is very common in geriatric units. In 2009 a first study, performed in all geriatric units of a university hospital, showed that numerous errors were made during prescription, preparation and administration. The aim of this second prospective study was to assess the impact of regional and national recommendations in the same(More)
The present study was undertaken to measure the gain observed in the liver-to-tumor contrast of perioperative images when using mangafodipir trisodium, a liver-specific contrast agent, during percutaneous cryosurgery of the liver performed under the guidance of magnetic resonance images. Retrospective quantitative analyses of MR images were performed on(More)
