Computed tomography is an established modality for the evaluation of the pericardium. It is used to evaluate complicated pericardial effusions, pericardial thickening, calcific pericarditis, pericardial cysts, postoperative changes and primary and metastatic neoplasms of the pericardium. Magnetic resonance imaging is being used with increasing frequency in(More)
Thirteen patients with clinical stages I and II endometrial carcinoma were examined with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging before surgery. Depth of invasion and stage of disease were assessed, and the results were compared with those from MR images of the surgical specimens and pathologic findings. Staging with MR imaging was accurate in 11 of 13 patients(More)
This study investigated the effects of MRI on receptor-mediated activation of pineal gland indole biosynthesis. Exposure of rats to MRI reduced the effects of isoproterenol on pineal serotonin and N-acetylserotonin levels suggesting that strong magnetic fields and/or radio-frequency pulsing used in MRI inhibited beta-adrenergic activation of the gland.(More)
