Cranial nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) scans were performed on 13 healthy volunteers and 140 patients with a broad spectrum of neurologic disease and compared with x-ray computed tomography (CT) scans. The NMR scans included a variety of sequences reflecting proton density, blood flow, T1, and T2 as well as transverse, sagittal, and coronal images. White(More)
Ten patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) were scanned by means of cranial X-ray computed tomography (CT) with and without intravenous contrast enhancement, and by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) using an inversion-recovery sequence. Altogether 19 lesions varying in size between about 7 mm X 5 mm and 13 mm X 8 mm were demonstrated by CT. They were all(More)
The results of initial clinical nuclear magnetic resonance imaging of the brain in eight normal and 52 children with a wide variety of neurologic diseases were reviewed. The high level of gray-white matter contrast available with inversion-recovery sequences provided a basis for visualizing normal myelination as well as delays or deficits in this process.(More)
PURPOSE The objective of our study was to compare MRI of fistulas-in-ano using an endoanal coil with that using a pelvic phased array coil and to assess the value of a combined approach by correlating the findings with those at surgery. METHOD Twenty consecutive patients with clinical suspicion of perianal sepsis were studied using an endoanal coil(More)
The results of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) examinations in 26 patients with histologic (15 cases) or clinical (11 cases) diagnoses of tumors within the posterior fossa were reviewed and compared with x-ray computed tomography (CT). Most tumors displayed an increase in T1 and T2 relative to brain. All seven benign tumors were seen with both CT and NMR,(More)
Attention is drawn to the use of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spin-echo sequences in the recognition of white matter disease of the brain. In 5 patients with multiple sclerosis, 8 lesions were seen with postcontrast x-ray computed tomography (CT) (37.5 g of iodine), 33 with inversion-recovery (IR) scans, and 47 with spin-echo (SE) scans.

Ventricular septal defect is not always a simple lesion, but may be associated with other congenital cardiac disorders. The object of this paper is to present anomalies of the great vessels that have been found on angiocardiography or at operation in a series of patients with a ventricular septal defect investigated and treated at Hammersmith Hospital.(More)
The effectiveness of repeated plasma exchange with 2 to 4 litres of plasma protein fraction as long-term treatment for familial hypercholesterolaemia has been evaluated in six severely affected patients receiving conventional cholesterol lowering treatment. Cell-separator mediated exchange at monthly intervals for one to two years reduced mean serum(More)
