The clinical application of intravenous angiography to study the cervicocerebrovascular system using the digital video subtraction system described in a companion article is reported. About 0.75 ml/kg of a standard 76% iodine contrast solution is injected into an antecubital vein using a power injector. Then 15-20 exposures of the head and neck region at a(More)
An x-ray imaging system, using digital subtraction techniques, has been developed. The system requires: (1) high output generation equipment; (2) an image intensifier capable of receiving high output exposures, 1 mR (2.58 X 10(-7) C/kg) at the face of the intensifier, without loss of either contrast or resolution; (3) a precision digital video camera; (4)(More)
A digital subtraction system for performing intravenous angiography has been developed and applied to the diagnosis of renal vascular abnormalities. A total of 35 patients underwent 39 intravenous angiographic examinations for a variety of renal-related clinical indications. Satisfactory examinations were achieved in 36 cases (92%) with a high degree of(More)
Without premedication or special preparation, digital video subtraction angiography, also known as photoelectronic intravenous angiography, was effectively used for evaluating patients who had undergone peripheral vascular reconstructive procedures. Thirty-eight studies in 20 patients were performed using computer contrast enhancement after an intravenous(More)
We have shown that the second stage tumor promoters mezerein (MEZ) and phorbol 12-retinoate 13-acetate (PRA) inhibit the gluccocorticoid-induced increase in glycerol phosphate dehydrogenase (GPDH) activity in C6 rat glioma cells with ED 50-values of 3.9 and 2.9 nM, respectively. Phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA) was 10-fold less potent. MEZ was likewise(More)
