OBJECTIVE To characterize neuroimaging, physical, neurobehavioral, and developmental findings in children with inflicted and noninflicted traumatic brain injury (TBI) and to identify characteristic features of inflicted TBI. METHODS AND PATIENTS Forty children, 0 to 6 years of age, hospitalized for TBI who had no documented history of previous brain(More)
BACKGROUND The prognostic value of (201)Tl myocardial imaging has been demonstrated in several studies concerning patients with a known significant coronary artery disease. However, the evolution of a coronary stenosis after stenting is difficult to predict. This study was designed to assess the prognostic value of (201)Tl single-photon emission computed(More)
Neuropathology occurring as a result of hemodynamic injury occurs in up to 25% of preterm newborns of less than 1,500 gm birth weight and in a much smaller, but nonetheless meaningful, proportion of more mature infants. Abnormalities in cerebrovascular regulation have been proposed as major contributing factors to both ischemic and hemorrhagic injuries in(More)
Early treatment and combining a triptan with a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) are thought to improve outcome during migraine attacks, possibly by counteracting the negative influence of cutaneous allodynia. The aim of this multicentre, double-blind pilot study was to evaluate the prevalence of brush allodynia and its relative influence on the(More)
PURPOSE Digital rectal examination is integral to staging prostate cancer. Ultrasound guided biopsy establishes the diagnosis, and it may provide useful information regarding disease grade and extent. Treatment decisions are largely based on information gained from digital rectal examination and biopsy but this information is only useful if it correlates(More)
Acute CT/MRI findings were examined in a prospective, longitudinal study of 60 children 0-6 years of age hospitalized for moderate to severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). TBI was categorized as either inflicted (n = 31) or noninflicted (n = 29). Glasgow Coma Scale scores and perinatal history were comparable in both groups. Acute CT/MRI studies were(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the early changes in left ventricular diastolic and systolic function due to anthracycline treatment. DESIGN A prospective study of cardiac function by radionuclide angiography in adults before and one month after the end of anthracycline treatment. PATIENTS 60 patients without cardiac disease treated with chemotherapy containing(More)
PURPOSE To determine the extent to which the number of planes imaged at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging could be reduced without modifying the calculated volume and thickness of the left ventricle. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty-one patients were examined after a myocardial infarction. The whole left ventricle was imaged by using 5-mm contiguous breath-hold(More)
