BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Intra-arterial contrast angiographies are generally used to confirm treatment results of endovascular neurointerventions such as aneurysm obliteration. We compared MR angiography with digital subtraction angiography (DSA) as a follow-up technique for the detection of aneurysmal remnant cavities and arterial patency in patients treated(More)
BACKGROUND Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is an increasingly used method for investigation of brain white matter integrity in both research and clinical applications. Familiarity with normal variation of fractional anisotropy (FA) and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values and measurement reproducibility is essential when DTI measurements are(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare quantitatively T2- and T2*-based magnetic resonance imaging sequences in patients with symptoms of Parkinson disease and to evaluate the information content of those sequences regarding brain iron concentration. MATERIALS AND METHODS We imaged 51 patients with symptoms of Parkinson disease on 3-T magnetic resonance imaging with(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The aim of the pilot study was to evaluate the feasibility of dynamic contrast enhanced (CE)-magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the detection of testicular ischemia and its ability to differentiate testicle torsion from other causes of acute scrotum. MATERIAL AND METHODS Seventeen boys or young men with an acute scrotum were included(More)
This project involves the development of a fast semi-automatic segmentation procedure to make an accurate volumetric estimation of brain lesions. This method has been applied in the segmentation of demyelination plaques in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and right cerebral hemispheric infarctions in patients with neglect. The developed segmentation method includes(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate whether texture analysis (TA) can detect subtle changes in cerebral tissue caused by mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) and to determine whether these changes correlate with neuropsychological and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) findings. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-two patients with MTBIs were(More)
Semiautomatic segmentation methods using High Resolution Computed Tomography (HRCT) or Magnetic Resonance Imaging give accurate and reproducible volumetric measurements in various intracranial diseases. In this prospective study, for the first time in literature, with the help of a new semiautomatic segmentation technique and coronal HRCT, we correlated the(More)
To compare different MRI sequences for the detection of lesions and the evaluation of response to chemotherapy in patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), 18 patients with histology-confirmed DLBCL underwent 3-T MRI scanning prior to and 1 week after chemotherapy. The MRI sequences included T1-weighted pre- and post-contrast, T2 -weighted with(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES This novel study aims to investigate texture parameters in distinguishing healthy breast tissue and breast cancer in breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). A specific aim was to identify possible differences in the texture characteristics of histological types (lobular and ductal) of invasive breast cancer and to determine the(More)
This study was designed to (i) evaluate the influence of age on diffusion tensor imaging measures of white matter assessed using tract-based spatial statistics; (ii) determine if mild traumatic brain injury is associated with microstructural changes in white matter, in the acute phase following injury, in a large homogenous sample that was carefully(More)
