Texture analysis was performed in three different MRI units on T1 and T2-weighted MR images from 10 healthy volunteers and 63 patients with histologically confirmed intracranial tumors. The goal of this study was a multicenter evaluation of the usefulness of this quantitative approach for the characterization of healthy and pathologic human brain tissues(More)
We used high-magnetic field (4.7 T) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to build the first high-resolution (100 microm x 150 microm x 100 microm) three-dimensional (3D) digital atlas in stereotaxic coordinates of the brain of a female domestic pig (Sus scrofa domesticus). This atlas was constructed from one hemisphere which underwent a symmetrical(More)
PURPOSE To test the reproducibility and accuracy of pharmacokinetic parameter measurements on five analysis software packages (SPs) for dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI), using simulated and clinical data. MATERIALS AND METHODS This retrospective study was Institutional Review Board-approved. Simulated tissues consisted of(More)
An interesting approach has been proposed to differentiate malignant glioneuronal tumors (MGNTs) as a subclass of the WHO grade III and IV malignant gliomas. MGNT histologically resemble any WHO grade III or IV glioma but have a different biological behavior, presenting a survival twice longer as WHO glioblastomas and a lower occurrence of metastases.(More)
Glioblastoma (GB) is the most frequent and aggressive type of primary brain tumor. Recurrences are mostly located at the margin of the resection cavity in the peritumoral brain zone (PBZ). Although it is widely believed that infiltrative tumor cells in this zone are responsible for GB recurrence, few studies have examined this zone. In this study, we(More)
Dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) using extracellular contrast agents has proved to be useful for the characterization of breast tumors. DCE-MRI has demonstrated a high sensitivity (around 95%) but a rather poor and controversial specificity, varying, according to the different studies, from 45% to 90%. In order to increase (a)(More)
In this study we used the colon carcinoma DHDK12 cell line and generated single metastasis after subcapsular injection in BDIX rats as an experimental tumor model. The aim of the work was to set up in vitro experimental conditions to prepare immune effector cells and in vivo conditions for monitoring the effects of such cells injected as adoptive(More)
The extraction of physiological parameters by non-invasive imaging techniques such as dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or positron emission tomography requires a knowledge of molecular distribution and exchange between microvascularization and extravascular tissues. These phenomena not only depend on the physicochemical characteristics of the(More)
In this work, a computational model of magnetic resonance (MR) flow imaging is proposed. The first model component provides fluid dynamics maps by applying the lattice Boltzmann method. The second one uses the flow maps and couples MR imaging (MRI) modeling with a new magnetization transport algorithm based on the Eulerian coordinate approach. MRI modeling(More)
The paper presents a computational model of magnetic resonance (MR) flow imaging. The model consists of three components. The first component is used to generate complex vascular structures, while the second one provides blood flow characteristics in the generated vascular structures by the lattice Boltzmann method. The third component makes use of the(More)
