Endurance exercise training studies frequently show modest changes in VO2max with training and very limited responses in some subjects. By contrast, studies using interval training (IT) or combined IT and continuous training (CT) have reported mean increases in VO2max of up to ~1.0 L · min(-1). This raises questions about the role of exercise intensity and(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether a combination of magnetic resonance (MR) parameters can help differentiate small angiomyolipomas (AMLs) without visible fat from renal cell carcinomas (RCCs). MATERIALS AND METHODS This HIPAA-compliant retrospective study received institutional review board approval; 69 men and 42 women (mean age, 59.7 years) with 15 AMLs(More)
The objective of this study was to develop EULAR/ACR classification criteria for polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR). Candidate criteria were evaluated in a 6-month prospective cohort study of 125 patients with new onset PMR and 169 non-PMR comparison subjects with conditions mimicking PMR. A scoring algorithm was developed based on morning stiffness >45 minutes(More)
PURPOSE To determine the causal association and effect of intravenous iodinated contrast material exposure on the incidence of acute kidney injury (AKI), also known as contrast material-induced nephropathy (CIN). MATERIALS AND METHODS This retrospective study was approved by an institutional review board and was HIPAA compliant. Informed consent was(More)
PURPOSE To determine the effect of baseline estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) on the causal association between intravenous iodinated contrast material exposure and subsequent development of acute kidney injury (AKI) in propensity score-matched groups of patients who underwent contrast material-enhanced or unenhanced computed tomography (CT).

OBJECTIVE To test hypothesized relationships between multiple health parameters and mortality among persons with spinal cord injury (SCI) while controlling for variations in biographical and injury characteristics. DESIGN Prospective cohort study with health data collected in late 1997 and early 1998 and mortality status ascertained in December 2005. (More)
UNLABELLED Studies on nonelite distance runners suggest that men are more likely than women to slow their pace in a marathon. PURPOSE This study determined the reliability of the sex difference in pacing across many marathons and after adjusting women's performances by 12% to address men's greater maximal oxygen uptake and also incorporating information(More)
Computed tomography (CT) is used to assess for fracture after knee trauma, but identification of ligamentous injuries may also be beneficial. Our purpose is to assess the potential of dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) for the detection of complete anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) disruption. Sixteen patients with unilateral traumatic ACL disruption(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Some patients with SIH have fast CSF leaks requiring dynamic CTM for localization; however, patients generally undergo conventional CTM before a dynamic study. Our aim was to determine whether findings on head MR imaging, spine MR imaging, or opening pressure measurements can predict fast spinal CSF leaks. MATERIALS AND METHODS A(More)
