Liver tumors: comparison of MR imaging with Gd-EOB-DTPA and Gd-DTPA.
Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced MR imaging enables improved detection of hepatic lesions over Gd- DTPA- enhanced MR imaging while providing comparable differential diagnostic information. Expand
Combined 123I-FP-CIT and 123I-IBZM SPECT for the diagnosis of parkinsonian syndromes: study on 72 patients
IBZM SPECT is useful to approve the diagnosis of PSP and MSA although a normal finding cannot exclude an atypical PS, and FP-CIT SPECT allows an accurate detection of nigrostriatal affection in neurodegenerative PS. Expand
Anomalous origin of the right vertebral artery: review of the literature and case report of right vertebral artery origin distal to the left subclavian artery.
The case of a 57-year-old patient who was admitted to the hospital for preoperative cerebral angiography because of an intraspinal mass revealed an abnormal origin of the right vertebral artery, which normally originates from the right subclavian artery. Expand
Comprehensive Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging at 3.0 Tesla: Feasibility and Implications for Clinical Applications
Cardiac MRI at 3.0 T is feasible for the comprehensive assessment of cardiac morphology and function, although SAR limitations and susceptibility effects remain a concern. Expand
Suspected chronic myocarditis at cardiac MR: diagnostic accuracy and association with immunohistologically detected inflammation and viral persistence.
In patients clinically suspected of having CMC, increased gRE and ER indicating inflammation were common findings that could be confirmed at immunohistologic analysis, whereas LE had low sensitivity and accuracy. Expand
123I-IMT SPECT and 1HMR-Spectroscopy at 3.0T in the Differential Diagnosis of Recurrent or Residual Gliomas: A Comparative Study
123I-IMT SPECT yielded more favorable results compared to 1H-MRS at distinguishing recurrent and/or residual glioma from post-therapeutic changes and may be particularly valuable when the evaluation of tumor extent is necessary. Expand
Cervical lymphadenopathy: ratio of long- to short-axis diameter as a predictor of malignancy.
The l/s ratio of lymph nodes provides an excellent criterion for differentiation between benign and malignant enlargement in cervical lymphadenopathy. Expand
In vitro validation of phase‐contrast flow measurements at 3 T in comparison to 1.5 T: Precision, accuracy, and signal‐to‐noise ratios
To evaluate the signal‐to‐noise ratio (SNR), precision, and accuracy of phase‐contrast flow measurements at 3 T with the help of an in vitro model and to compare the results with data from two 1.5‐TExpand
Enlarged cervical lymph nodes at helical CT.
The L/T at helical CT provide an accurate assessment of reactive versus malignant nodes in the head and neck. Expand
MRI of prostate cancer at 1.5 and 3.0 T: comparison of image quality in tumor detection and staging.
Intraindividual comparison shows that image quality and delineation of prostate cancer at 1.5 T with the use of an endorectal coil in a pelvic phased-array is superior to the higher field strength of 3.0 T, which is the gold standard for prostate imaging. Expand
