Despite the availability and wide use of modern imaging techniques, the diagnosis of Meckel's diverticulum is difficult. The signs and symptoms vary from none to those of an acute abdomen or gastrointestinal bleeding. Findings on physical examination may be inconsistent because of the variable location of the diverticulum, and bleeding may occur with no(More)
PURPOSE To estimate the radiation dose to the conceptus resulting from tangential breast irradiation. METHODS AND MATERIALS Conceptus radiation doses were measured in anthropomorphic phantoms simulating the geometry of a pregnant woman at the first, second, and third trimesters of gestation. Medial and lateral field irradiations were generated using a(More)
PURPOSE To measure lumbar spine T2*, T2, T2' and T1 MR relaxometry parameters and compare them with lumbar spine bone mineral density (BMD) in a group of postmenopausal women. MATERIALS AND METHODS Lumbar spine T2*, T2, T2' and T1 MR relaxometry parameters and BMD values were assessed in 101 postmenopausal women (mean age: 61.8 +/- 7.1 (1 S.D.) years); of(More)
PURPOSE To determine the feasibility of transtympanic iontophoresis in experimental animals with a paramagnetic contrast agent at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. MATERIALS AND METHODS Optimal MR sequence parameters and appropriate paramagnetic ion concentrations of a water and gadopentetate dimeglumine solution were initially assessed with phantoms.(More)
