We set out to validate the concept of three-dimensional (3D) angiography. We evaluated the sensitivity and the quality of morphological analysis mode possible by an experimental system for imaging cerebrovascular disease versus standard digital subtraction angiography (DSA). The system, the 3D Morphometer, is a computerised X-ray angiography unit capable of(More)
Spinal schwannomas and meningiomas are mostly benign, intra-dural extramedullary tumours. We retrospectively reviewed the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) examinations of 52 spinal schwannomas and meningiomas operated on at our institution since 1998. The series included 28 schwannomas and 24 meningiomas. We compared MRI features of schwannomas and(More)
The need for medical images which can directly contribute to therapeutic decision making has led to the development of 3D visualization techniques. With this objective, a procedure capable of producing 3D volume reconstructions using isotropic voxels from digitalized 2D films obtained by rotation around the object has been developed: 3D morphometry. The(More)
Recovery after stroke is closely linked to cerebral plasticity. Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a non-invasive technique, which allows location of cerebral cells activities. In the present work, a cohort of patients has been studied with MEG. Twelve patients with a recent ischemic or hemorragic stroke were included as soon as possible after onset of stroke.(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE No practical tool has been reported in the literature to evaluate the quality of cerebral TR-3D-CE-MRA techniques. Our study assessed a large list of parameters used to propose a quality-evaluation scheme for TR-3D-CE-MRA. MATERIALS AND METHODS A large list of visual and quantitative parameters used to study the quality of images(More)
We report a case of a 55-year-old man who experienced spontaneous resolution of a large herniated disc at T8-9. Spontaneous resolution of disc herniation is well known at the lumbar level. This case is a rare example of a large thoracic disc herniation diagnosed by CT and MRI which completely regressed six months after a medical treatment with complete(More)
Even if acute subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) accounts for only 5% of strokes, its diagnosis is very important because its clinical consequences can be tragic. Recent technological advances in medical imaging have improved diagnostic and therapeutic management of patients with SAH. Nonenhanced CT of the head is the initial imaging modality in suspected SAH(More)
Idiopathic thoracic spinal cord herniation (TISCH) is a rare cause of surgically treatable progressive myelopathy. The authors report 3 cases of TISCH diagnosed based on conventional T1- and T2-weighted Spin-Echo (SE) MR images in one case, and T1- and T2-weighted SE images combined with 3D-FIESTA (Fast Imaging Employing Steady state Acquisition) and(More)
Two cases (a young male and a girl, suffering intractable epilepsy) of diffuse subcortical laminar heterotopia, or so-called double cortex (DC) have been investigated using magnetoencephalography (MEG). MEG confirmed involvement of both cortices (hetero- and normocortex) in the genesis of interictal spikes, and, according to the heterogeneity of DC(More)
