This prospective study on Bell's palsy investigated the value of 3 T MRI as a diagnostic tool to evaluate pathophysiological changes (i.e. edema) of facial nerve segments and the possibility to differentiate patients with high risk for incomplete recovery from patients who recover completely within 3 days after symptoms onset. For this institutional review(More)
Due to their different physical origin, X-ray mammography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) provide complementary diagnostic information. However, the correlation of their images is challenging due to differences in dimensionality, patient positioning and compression state of the breast. Our automated registration takes over part of the correlation task.(More)
OBJECTIVE The adjacent vessel sign (AVS) is a descriptor for differentiating malignant from benign breast lesions on breast MRI (bMRI). This investigation was designed to verify the previous reports on the diagnostic accuracy of AVS and to assess correlation between AVS, histopathological diagnosis, lesion size and lesion grade. MATERIALS AND METHODS This(More)
PURPOSE Neurological and smelling disorders (e.g. Alzheimer's disease, sinonasal disease) negatively affect the microstructural integrity of the olfactory bulb's (OB) cortical layers. Recovery processes depend on active restoration of this microstructural integrity enabled by neuroneogenesis in the OB. The aim of this study was to evaluate lamination(More)
PURPOSE Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women. The established screening method to detect breast cancer is X-ray mammography. Additionally, MRI is used for diagnosis in clinical routine. Due to complementary diagnostic information, both modalities are often read in combination. Yet, the correlation is challenging due to different(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Magnetic resonance imaging olfactory bulb (OB) volumetry (OBV) is already used as a complementary prognostic tool to assess olfactory disorders. However, a reference standard in imaging for OBV has not been established. The aim of this in vitro study was to compare volumetric results of different magnetic resonance sequences for OBV(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the suitability of 3-T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for olfactory bulb volumetry, comparing image quality obtained using different sequences on the basis of physical characteristics in combination with observer performance. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-two healthy volunteers (11 men, 11(More)
There is an error in the fourth paragraph of the Discussion section. The name " van der Hel-den " is incorrect. The correct name should be: van der Velden. There is an error in the first sentence of the " Patient selection " subsection of the Material and Methods section. The correct sentence should read: For this cross-sectional single-center IRB-approved(More)
PURPOSE To demonstrate our primary findings, indicating perirenal edema as a first imaging sign towards primary hypertension. METHODS Out of 3190 consecutive MR-Mammography (MRM) examinations, 777 were performed with an additional body array coil. Incidentally, "perirenal edema" could be linked to a patient history of hypertension. We Therefore(More)
BACKGROUND Previously, a strong positive association between background parenchymal enhancement (BPE) at magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and breast cancer was reported in high-risk populations. We sought to determine, whether this was also true for non-high-risk patients. METHODS 540 consecutive patients underwent breast MRI for assessment of breast(More)
