Assessment of trabecular microarchitecture may improve estimation of biomechanical strength, but visualization of trabecular bone structure in vivo is challenging. We tested the feasibility of assessing trabecular microarchitecture in the spine using multidetector CT (MDCT) on intact human cadavers in an experimental in vivo-like setup. BMD, bone structure(More)
To evaluate how far fracture status and bone mineral density (BMD) correlate with the vascular calcification score (CS). On 29 complete human cadavers (17 female, 12 male; mean age at death was 85.57 years), multi-detector computed tomography was performed to assess the spine fracture status (fracture vs non-fracture [FX vs non-FX]) and CS of the coronary(More)
The aim of our study was to perform trabecular bone structure analysis with images from 64- and 320-slice multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) and to compare these with high-resolution peripheral computed tomography (HR-pQCT). Twenty human cadaver distal forearm specimens were imaged on a 64- and 320-slice MDCT system at 120 kVp, 200 mA and 135 kVp, 400(More)
The prediction of bone strength can be improved when determining bone mineral density (BMD) in combination with measures of trabecular microarchitecture. The goal of this study was to assess parameters of trabecular bone structure and texture of the calcaneus by clinical multi-detector row computed tomography (MDCT) in an experimental in situ setup and to(More)
Seven patients aged 29 to 76 years with various clinical subtypes of chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) were investigated. Sural nerve biopsies were performed between 7 months and 19 years after onset of disease. Quantitative electron microscopy revealed involvement of primary unmyelinated fibers (UF) in all cases. When compared with(More)
We present data of 2 patients suffering from chronic motor-sensory multifocal neuropathy with persistent conduction block. The first case concerns a 9-year follow-up of a female, aged 24 years at onset with persistent multiple conduction blocks and a tendency towards generalization of clinical deficits. Eight years after onset sural nerve biopsy revealed(More)
Since normal structural details of human greater auricular nerve (GAN) have not as yet been studied with modern techniques, light and electron microscopic findings of seven presumably normal GANs, obtained from five patients during radical neck dissection, were compared with those of normal sural nerves (SNs). In GANs there was a tendency to higher(More)
