CONCLUSION After the administration of a standard dose of gadodiamide, an intravenous gadolinium-based contrast agent (GBCA), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) evaluation of endolymphatic hydrops (EH) became possible in patients with ipsilateral delayed endolymphatic hydrops (DEH). We found that patients with ipsilateral DEH may also have bilateral EH. (More)
In this study, an automated scheme for detecting pulmonary nodules using a novel hybrid PET/CT approach is proposed, which is designed to detect pulmonary nodules by combining data from both sets of images. Solitary nodules were detected on CT by a cylindrical filter that we developed previously, and in the PET imaging, high-uptake regions were detected(More)
CONCLUSION Even after the administration of a standard dose of an intravenous gadolinium-based contrast agent (GBCA), visualization of endolymphatic hydrops (ELH) became possible in patients with Meniere's disease. The next step would be to consistently visualize ELH in the upper part of the cochlea. OBJECTIVE To visualize ELH after routine administration(More)
PURPOSE Automated detection of solitary pulmonary nodules using positron emission tomography (PET) and computed tomography (CT) images shows good sensitivity; however, it is difficult to detect nodules in contact with normal organs, and additional efforts are needed so that the number of false positives (FPs) can be further reduced. In this paper, the(More)
