OBJECTIVE Benign intracranial hypertension (BIH) may be caused by intracranial venous sinus thrombosis. Cerebral angiograms may, however, be normal in patients with BIH that are associated with conditions with an increased risk of venous thrombosis. This raises the possibility that unrecognised non-occlusive venous thrombus might impede CSF drainage. This(More)
Three patients with bleeding tendency who met the criteria for type 1 von Willebrand's disease are described. In two patients, hypothyroidism was suspected and confirmed at presentation, and in the third hypothyroidism became apparent 4 years later. In all three, the history and clinical course after treatment with thyroxine indicated acquired von(More)
Current digital information systems in radiology are insufficient to accommodate the retrieval needs of academicians. Significant efforts are required in retrieving clinical cases for teaching and research. We describe a prototype system that supports intelligent case retrieval based on a combined specification of patient demographics, radiologic findings,(More)
AIMS Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging benefits from a large field of view, but consequently captures incidental extra-cardiac findings (IEFs). There is a relative paucity of data for CMR in this regard. Our objectives were to assess the frequency and significance of IEFs reported from clinically indicated CMR scans, and additionally to ascertain if(More)
The persistence of a left-sided superior vena cava is the most common variant of systemic venous drainage. Increased utility of cardiac imaging, in particular cross-sectional techniques such as computed tomography and magnetic resonance (MR), will result in increased detection of the anomaly and its variants. Whilst in the typical form it is often(More)
Density profiles of protein patterns from cortical tissue exhibit an increase in only one peak when mice are rendered epileptic by application of cobalt to the cortex. The increase and diminution in peak height, attributed to a change in the concentration of a single protein (protein 3), coincides with the severity of seizure activity; with the degree of(More)
