OBJECTIVE The prefrontal-parietal circuits have been reported to play an important role in working memory. The purpose of this study was to use direct neuroimaging to address whether interregional correlation in the prefrontal-parietal circuits is impaired in schizophrenia. METHOD [(15)O]H(2)O positron emission tomography was used to compare regional(More)
BACKGROUND Patient-specific CT-based instrumentation may reduce implant malpositioning and improve alignment in TKA. However, it is not known whether this innovation is an advance that benefits patients. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We evaluated (1) the precision of patient-specific TKA by comparing the incidence of outliers in postoperative alignment between TKAs(More)
We developed age, gender and ethnic specific brain templates based on MR and Positron-Emission Tomography (PET) images of Korean normal volunteers. Seventy-eight normal right-handed volunteers (M/F=49/29) underwent 3D T1-weighted SPGR MR and F-18-FDG PET scans. For the generation of standard templates, an optimal target brain that has the average global(More)
Verbal working memory plays a significant role in language comprehension and problem-solving. The prefrontal cortex has been suggested as a critical area in working memory. Given that domain-specific dissociations of working memory may exist within the prefrontal cortex, it is possible that there may also be further functional divisions within the verbal(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the outcome of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction using a quadriceps tendon autograft. TYPE OF STUDY A case series of patients who had received arthroscopic ACL reconstructions using quadriceps tendon autograft was retrospectively evaluated. METHODS Sixty-seven ACL reconstructions were(More)
There remains no consensus as to whether mobile total knee arthroplasty (TKA) should use a posterior cruciate ligament-sacrificing ultracongruent (UC) or a posterior cruciate ligament-substituting posterior stabilized (PS) prosthesis. The purpose of this study was to assess intraoperative kinematics and clinical outcomes of UC and PS rotating platform(More)
Although results from neuropsychological and neuroimaging studies have postulated the involvement of the frontal lobe and the subcortical brain regions in the pathophysiology of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), neuroimaging studies have provided little evidence that cognitive abnormalities in patients with OCD are related to dysfunctions in these areas.(More)
Differences in brain activity of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have been compared to normal healthy controls, suggesting neural correlates of cognitive/behavioral symptoms. Symptoms are improved with methylphenidate treatment but limited sources can be cited to show how brain activity in ADHD is altered after pharmacologic(More)
UNLABELLED Because limited resection could yield an equally good surgical outcome as standard anterior resection in temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE), the differentiation of medial from lateral TLE is important. We tried to find the differential features in metabolic abnormalities between medial and lateral TLE groups using quantitative analysis including(More)
We investigated the diagnostic performance of 18F-FDG PET and ictal (99m)Tc-HMPAO SPET in pediatric temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). Twenty-one pediatric TLE patients were enrolled in this study. Their diagnoses were confirmed by histology and post-surgical outcome (Engel class I or II). The patients' ages were 18 or younger (15+/-3 years). Of the 21 patients,(More)
