BACKGROUND Acute rejection is a major factor impacting survival in the first 12 months after cardiac transplantation. Transplant monitoring requires invasive techniques. Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR), noninvasive testing, has been used in monitoring heart transplants. Prolonged T2 relaxation has been related to transplant edema and possibly rejection. We… (More)
PURPOSE To use four-dimensional (4D)-flow MRI for the comprehensive in vivo analysis of hemodynamics and its relationship to size and morphology of different intracranial aneurysms (IA). We hypothesize that different IA groups, defined by size and morphology, exhibit different velocity fields, wall shear stress, and vorticity. MATERIALS AND METHODS The… (More)
BACKGROUND The purpose was to evaluate the combined anti-microtubular regimen of vinorelbine and estramustine phosphate (EMP) in hormone refractory prostate cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS Weekly vinorelbine 20 mg/m2 (or 15 mg/m2 if a history of prior pelvic radiotherapy) was combined with EMP at 280 mg orally tds for 3 days (the day before, the day of and… (More)
INTRODUCTION Ultrasound (US) measures of muscle thickness are used in the management and monitoring of muscle changes during rehabilitation, but it is unknown how this measure compares to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) measures of muscle cross-sectional area (CSA) in patients with spinal cord injury (SCI). CASE PRESENTATION Six participants with… (More)
Objective To evaluate the potential clinical utility of T2 quantitative mapping for myocardial edema in acute disease pathology-myocarditis, myocardial infarction, Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy, and transplant rejection.
Objective To assess the utility of cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) in acute cardiac rejection using T2 mapping.
