Multiecho gradient-echo T*2 magnetic resonance imaging is a well-established technique for iron overload assessment but there are few reports concerning the pancreas. The aim of this work was to assess the feasibility and reproducibility of the magnetic resonance imaging for measuring pancreatic regional and global T*2 values, to establish the lower limit(More)
Electrophysiological findings in the median and ulnar nerves of a group of ten workers who operate hand-held vibrating power tools are described. Motor conduction velocities, motor latencies and amplitude of evoked compound muscle action potentials were measured. We have observed statistically significant changes in the distal latencies and in the amplitude(More)
