BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Intravascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms is a relatively new therapeutic technique and long-term controlled angiographic trials are needed to assess persistence of aneurysm occlusion. Our purpose was to evaluate the effectiveness of 3D time-of-flight (3D-TOF) MR angiography as a noninvasive screening tool in the follow-up of(More)
Turbo Spin-Echo (Turbo SE) pulse sequences represent a new type of fast sequences characterized by a dramatic reduction in acquisition time with similar intrinsic contrast to that of conventional Spin-Echo (SE) pulse sequences. For a preliminary clinical comparison of turbo SE and SE sequences, a consecutive series of 25 patients with focal liver lesions(More)
In the last few years, new magnetic resonance (MR) pulse sequences called Fast or Turbo Spin Echo (TSE) sequences have become available. This kind of T2-weighted images is particularly useful for the study of spondylosis and degenerative spinal conditions, because it both reduces involuntary motion artifacts and its acquisition time is shorter than that of(More)
