Surgical cure of adenocarcinoma of the prostate (ACP) is possible in over 80% of cases when the disease is confined to the gland capsule. The endorectal probe for magnetic resonance (MR) imaging has increased resolution of the prostate gland and capsule, which has improved the sensitivity and specificity for staging ACP (.65 sensitivity, .69 specificity for(More)
A retrospective study of the magnetic resonance (MR) images of the lumbar spines of 13 healthy subjects and 30 patients with degenerative changes was done. In the healthy subjects, the vertebral facets, thickness of the cartilage and ligamentum flavum, signal characteristics of the bone marrow, and size of the spinal canal were studied. In the patients with(More)
BACKGROUND To assess changes in right heart flow and pulmonary artery hemodynamics in patients with repaired Tetralogy of Fallot (rTOF) we used whole heart, four dimensional (4D) velocity mapping (VM) cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR). METHODS CMR studies were performed in 11 subjects with rTOF (5M/6F; 20.1 ± 12.4 years) and 10 normal volunteers(More)
The magnetic resonance (MR) imaging findings in four patients with mucinous tumors involving the prostate are presented. The MR appearance of these tumors differed from that of typical prostatic adenocarcinomas in that the signal intensity on T2-weighted images approximated or exceeded that of the uninvolved peripheral zone. The unusual appearance of(More)
Meniscal and ganglion cysts frequently present as palpable masses of the knee but occur at different locations than do popliteal cysts. Meniscal cysts also may be discovered incidentally on studies performed for suspected internal derangement. Sixteen cystic lesions of the knee were evaluated with MR, including 11 meniscal cysts and five ganglion cysts.(More)
The in vivo and ex vivo microanatomic appearance of early disc degeneration were identified by magnetic resonance imaging and correlated with their respective histopathologic findings. Five cadaver spines (18 discs) and 25 patient studies (122 discs) all imaged at 1.5 Tesla were studied. Two signs of early degenerative disc disease were found: infolding and(More)
High-resolution magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of 24 fresh radical prostatectomy specimens was performed on an experimental 1.9-T system. Direct correlation between the findings in 7-micron-thick macrosections and their corresponding MR images was possible. Fourteen patients had macroscopic evidence of cancer. In all 14 cases, the carcinoma nodules(More)
During the past several years there has been extensive development and application of hyperpolarized helium-3 (HP (3)He) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in clinical respiratory indications such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis, radiation-induced lung injury, and transplantation. This review focuses on the state-of-the-art(More)
Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging was used to stage prostatic carcinoma in 81 patients with a proved diagnosis. MR imaging findings were correlated with histologic findings regarding the local extent of disease (37 patieNts) and the presence of nodal metastases (51 patients). Tumor nodules were detected in the peripheral zone (PZ) in 34 of 37 patients and(More)
PURPOSE To compare noninvasive transstenotic pressure gradient (TSPG) measurements derived from high-spatial- and temporal-resolution four-dimensional magnetic resonance (MR) flow measurements with invasive measurements obtained from endovascular pressure wires with digital subtraction angiographic guidance.
