A prospective clinical study was performed in 32 patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) to evaluate the sensitivity of lesion detection and accuracy of lesion localization by neurologic examination, delayed enhanced computed tomography (CT) with a double dose of contrast material, and proton magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. After neurologic examination(More)
We present a method for producing accurate calculated T1 and spin density nuclear magnetic resonance images. A modified Carr-Purcell-Meiboom-Gill pulse sequence is used to obtain a series of images containing both T1 and T2 dependence. The image series is first analyzed to remove the T2 dependence. The resulting images are then analyzed, pixel by pixel, to(More)
Nine patients who had acute and subacute stroke were examined by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) using a 6-MHz Bruker Instruments proton scanner. A modified Carr-Purcell-Meiboom-Gill pulse sequence was used for signal detection. The resultant string of spin-echoes was Fourier transformed into projections that were subsequently back-projected to a series of(More)
The feasibility of using magnetic resonance (MR) imaging to estimate myocardial infarct size was explored in an in vitro model using only the inherent differences in contrast between infarcted and noninfarcted myocardium. Eight dogs underwent coronary occlusion; their hearts were removed 6 hours later. Estimates of T2 for normal and infarcted myocardium(More)
Cortical stroke was produced in rats by cautery occlusion of the middle cerebral artery distal to the lenticulostriate origins. Brains were removed, and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) scans of whole fixed brains and in vitro measurements of small samples were obtained. Brain tissue was then processed for histology. Routine scans used a modified spin-echo(More)
Microwave irradiation (2.45 GHz, 300-500 W) of N-(alkoxy)thiazole-2(3H)-thiones in low-absorbing solvents affords alkoxyl radicals, which were identified by (i) spin adduct formation (EPR-spectroscopy) and (ii) fingerprint-type selectivities in intramolecular additions (stereoselective synthesis of disubstituted tetrahydrofurans), beta-fragmentations(More)
The introduction of paramagnetic ions to affect relaxation times has been used in a variety of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) applications. All such relaxants used in NMR phantoms to date have consisted of a single paramagnetic ion. The disadvantage of this is that only one relaxation time can be adjusted as desired, either T1 or T2.
