Radiological assessment of the degree of ossification of the medial clavicular epiphyseal cartilage plays a vital part in forensic age diagnosis of living adolescents and young adults. A total of 873 plain chest radiographs requested by the staff medical officer for members of staff aged 16–30 at the University Hospital Charité were evaluated(More)
The authors retrospectively analyzed 629 CT images of patients aged between 15 and 30 years produced during multiple trauma diagnostics at the Unfallkrankenhaus Berlin. For the purposes of this study, the authors reliably determined the ossification status of the medial epiphysis of the clavicle in 556 cases, using the classification of stages by Schmeling(More)
Assessment of the degree of ossification of the medial clavicular epiphyseal cartilage is of vital importance in forensic age diagnostics of living individuals aged more than 18 years. To date, reference studies on the assessment of clavicular ossification using imaging procedures only relate to conventional radiography and computed tomography (CT). In this(More)
Determination of the stage of ossification of the medial clavicular epiphysis is a crucial part of forensic age estimation when evaluating living subjects over 18 years of age. In the present study, we comparatively assessed conventional radiographs and computed tomography (CT) scans of sternoclavicular joints used to perform forensic age assessments in 57(More)
Computed tomography scans originally obtained to assess the ossification status of the medial clavicular epiphyses of 40 live subjects for forensic age estimation purposes were analysed. From the data acquired we reconstructed images with slice thicknesses of 1, 3, 5 and 7 mm, and based on the classification of stages by Schmeling et al. (Int J Legal Med(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate kidney recipients in the early posttransplant phase by semiquantitative analysis of the arterial arrival of ultrasound (US) contrast medium using time-intensity curves. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty-two kidney recipients underwent US examination after intravenous bolus administration of 2.4 ml of US contrast medium (SonoVue, Bracco(More)
Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an autosomal dominant phakomatosis associated with intracardiac rhabdomyomas. The aim of our study was to examine the value of cerebral MRI in diagnosing TSC in fetuses with intracardiac rhabdomyomas, applying the TSC Consensus Conference (TSCCC) criteria. In a prospective manner six consecutive fetuses with cardiac(More)
BACKGROUND Conventional ultrasound parameters such as the resistance index (RI) are only of limited use in the diagnosis of early allograft dysfunction. We, therefore, performed a prospective study to compare the value of ultrasound contrast media (USCM) with conventional US in the diagnosis of early allograft dysfunction. METHODS A total of 48(More)
When patients with an implanted contraceptive device undergo MRI, it must be ensured that the examination involves no risk to the patient (MR safety) and that the diagnosis is not affected by artifacts or the function of the device compromised (MR compatibility). Two basic types of intrauterine devices can be distinguished: the metal-containing/metal-free(More)
PURPOSE To determine the maternofetal pharmacokinetics of gadoterate meglumine in mice during the first 48 hours following maternal intravenous injection of a high dose of 0.5 mmol of gadolinium per kilogram. MATERIALS AND METHODS All the studies complied with French law and the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals of the National Institutes(More)
