UNLABELLED As an integral part of the European Commission (EC) Imaging Referral Guidelines Project a 1.5-day workshop was held in Vienna on 20-21 September, 2012. At this workshop, models and good practices regarding the appropriateness and use of imaging referral guidelines (Guidelines) in Europe and worldwide were presented, together with the results of a(More)
Three patients with clinically suspected pseudoaneurysm as a complication of femoral puncture were referred for ultrasound (US) evaluation with both conventional duplex Doppler US and color Doppler imaging. Pseudoaneurysm (n = 2) and simple hematoma (n = 2) were depicted with both Doppler systems, and a separate pseudoaneurysm and a hematoma were found in(More)
BACKGROUND Efforts to identify cell sources and approaches for cell therapy of liver diseases are ongoing, taking into consideration the limits recognized for adult liver tissue and for other forms of stem cells. In the present study, we described the first procedure of via hepatic artery transplantation of human fetal biliary tree stem cells in patients(More)
In addition to location-specific representations of the environment, hippocampus receives and encodes in its principal cells information about movement. Lateral septal cells also code for location and movement. Information analysis was used to investigate the coding properties of simultaneously recorded hippocampal and lateral septal cells. In both areas,(More)
A non cirrhotic patient with esophageal varices and portal vein thrombosis had recurrent variceal bleeding unsuccessfully controlled by endoscopy and esophageal transection. Emergency transhepatic portography confirmed the thrombosed right branch of the portal vein, while the left branch appeared angulated, shifted and stenotic. A stent was successfully(More)
AIM To establish a threshold value for liver fat content between healthy children and those with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) by using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), with liver biopsy serving as a reference standard. METHODS The study was approved by the local ethics committee, and written informed consent was obtained from all(More)
Purpose To evaluate the feasibility of MRgFUS ablation in selected pancreatic and hepatic primary tumors. After giving their informed consent 5 patients with his-tologically proven unresectable pancreatic adenocarci-noma and 1 patient with unresectable right lobe HCC (4 males, 2 females; age range 58-72) underwent MRgFUS treatment on a dedicated 3T unit(More)
Objectives Thalamotomy of the ventral intermediate nucleus (VIM) is effective in alleviating medication resistant tremor in patients with essential tremor (ET) and Parkinson's disease (PD). MRI guided Focused Ultra-sound (MRgFUS) is an innovative technology that enables non-invasive thalamotomy via thermal ablation. Methods Thirty eight ET and PD patients(More)
The movement of the target challenges the application of high intensive focused ultrasound (HiFU/MRgFUS) for the treatment of malignancies in moving abdominal organs such as liver and kidney. Moreover, the anatomical location of the lesion is often behind the rib cage. The physiology of the organs, the dynamic and complex blood perfusion impairs the energy(More)
