BACKGROUND Neurovascular compression (NVC) of the trigeminal nerve is associated with trigeminal neuralgia (TN), but also occurs in many asymptomatic individuals. The purpose of this study was to investigate the possible microstructural tissue changes of trigeminal nerves (TGN) in asymptomatic individuals with NVC by using axial diffusivity (AD) and radial(More)
BACKGROUND Neurovascular compression (NVC) of the trigeminal nerve is associated with trigeminal neuralgia (TN). Some arteries that compress the trigeminal nerve are large, while others are small. This study evaluated the influence of diameter of compression arteries (DCA) on NVC with and without TN using axial diffusivity (AD) and radial diffusivity (RD)(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the image quality of cerebral dual-energy computed tomography (CT) angiography using a nonlinear image blending technique as compared with the conventional linear blending method in patients with spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). METHODS A retrospective review of 30 consecutive spontaneous SAH(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the differences in brain activation between musicians and non-musicians by use of functional MRI. METHODS Twelve right-handed musicians and twelve right-handed non-musicians were recruited in the study. During a listening task, they were scanned on the Sigma 1.5T scanner (GE) while they were passively listening to several segments of(More)
