PURPOSE To assess whether there is a significant difference in the effect of incremental changes of portal venous blood flow rates on the size of radiofrequency (RF) versus microwave (MW) ablation lesions in an ex vivo blood-perfused bovine liver model. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was exempt from approval by the Institutional Animal Care and Use(More)
Vascular pathology is ubiquitous in children. Common indications for angiographic imaging in the body include congenital anomalies, portal hypertension, assessing resectability of neoplasms, renovascular hypertension, vascular malformations, vasculitis, systemic vein thrombosis, and trauma. MR angiography, with or without the use of intravenous contrast(More)
Breath-held two-dimensional balanced steady--state free precession cine acquisition (2-D breath-held SSFP), accelerated with parallel imaging, is the method of choice for evaluating ventricular function due to its superior blood-to-myocardial contrast, edge definition and high intrinsic signal-to-noise ratio throughout the cardiac cycle. The purpose of this(More)
Background The right ventricular infundibular sparing approach (RVIS) to repair tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) avoids a ventricular incision used in the transventricular (TV) approach. Recent data has demonstrated better global right ventricular systolic function in patients who underwent RVIS compared to those who had a TV repair, however the impact of surgical(More)
