PURPOSE To evaluate the technical quality and visibility of the biliary tree and pancreatic duct on magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) images obtained with a single-breath-hold three-dimensional (3D) fast-recovery fast spin-echo (FRFSE) sequence in several different slice thicknesses. MATERIALS AND METHODS As a fundamental study, tubes of… (More)
In gamma knife stereotactic radiosurgery (GKSRS) treatment planning, 1.5 tesla (T)-magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is normally used to identify the target lesion. Image artifacts and distortion arise in MRI if a titanium clip is surgically implanted in the brain to treat cerebral aneurysm. 3-T MRI scanners, which are increasingly being adopted, provide… (More)
BACKGROUND During administration of thecisplatin (CDDP)containing regimen, hospitalization is necessary to ensure adequate hydration. However, short hydration is widely used when administering CDDP in outpatient chemotherapy centers. METHOD To assess the safety of the administration of CDDP during short hydration, we retrospectively evaluated adverse… (More)
BACKGROUND It is controversial whether patients with stage I ovarian clear cell carcinoma (CCC) benefit from postoperative chemotherapy. This study was designed to evaluate the postoperative outcomes associated with the inclusion or exclusion of adjuvant therapy in these patients. METHODS A total of 185 patients who were treated for stage I CCC between… (More)
We present the case of a 44-year-old nulliparous woman who experienced irregular menstrual cycles for about 10 years and developed both pituitary prolactinoma and endometrioid endometrial carcinoma. In premenopausal women, hyperprolactinemia causes hypogonadism by inhibiting secretion of gonadotropin-releasing hormone and thus suppressing luteinizing… (More)
•We analyzed the epidemiological factors for clinical manifestations of uterine adenomatoid tumors.•Renal transplantation with immunosuppression therapy is risk factor for the development of uterine adenomatoid tumors.•The length of time on dialysis is risk factor for the development of uterine adenomatoid tumors.
•Primary ovarian neuroblastomas are extremely rare and have poor prognoses.•This report provides results of the same combination therapy in two cases, which indicated its efficacy for ovarian neuroblastoma.
We assessed the geometric distortion of 1.5-Tesla (T) and 3.0-T magnetic resonance (MR) images with the Leksell skull frame system using three types of cranial quick fixation screws (QFSs) of different materials-aluminum, aluminum with tungsten tip, and titanium-for skull frame fixation. Two kinds of acrylic phantoms were placed on a Leksell skull frame… (More)
OBJECTIVE To clarify the effects of uterine myometrial suture techniques at prior caesarean section on the incidence of pathologically diagnosed placenta accreta in placenta praevia with prior caesarean section (PPPC). DESIGN Case-control study. SETTING Eleven tertiary referral hospitals in central Japan. POPULATION A total of 98 cases of placenta… (More)
