In this pictorial review, we illustrate acquired diseases or conditions of the corpus callosum that may be found by magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the brain, including infarction, bleeding, diffuse axonal injury, multiple sclerosis, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, Marchiafava-Bignami disease, glioblastoma, gliomatosis cerebri, lymphoma,(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this article is to review the clinical, pathologic, and MRI findings of mediastinal neurogenic tumors according to the three tumor origins: the peripheral nerves, sympathetic ganglia, and paraganglia. CONCLUSION MRI findings reflect pathologic features of mediastinal neurogenic tumors. Integrating consideration of age and(More)
We report three patients with a cerebrovascular accident studied serially by MRI, including diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI). In case 1, DWI 1 day after the onset of left frontoparietal cortical infarcts showed no abnormal signal in the left corticospinal tract. DWI 12 days after onset showed high signal in the corticospinal tract, interpreted as early(More)
Carotid-anterior cerebral artery anastomosis is a rare anomaly of the anterior part of the circle of Willis. We report here magnetic resonance (MR) angiographic findings in 2 patients with this anomaly. MR angiographic source images are useful in evaluating the anatomical details of this anomaly. Including the 2 present cases, 27 patients with this anomaly(More)
Myeloperoxidase anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic autoantibody (MPO-ANCA) is a well known marker for small vessel vasculitis. Recent reports have demonstrated that interstitial pneumonia (IP) may rarely be associated with serum MPO-ANCA. Yet, little is known about the histological features. We reviewed surgical lung biopsy from nine patients with IP of uncertain(More)
BACKGROUND Pleuroparenchymal fibroelastosis (PPFE) is a rare idiopathic interstitial pneumonia defined by pleural and subpleural parenchymal fibrosis predominantly in the upper lobes. Although the radiological and pathological characteristics of PPFE have become increasingly recognized, its pulmonary physiological features are not well understood. METHODS(More)
We illustrate the various types of secondary degeneration in the brainstem and/or cerebellum detected on magnetic resonance (MR) images obtained after cerebrovascular accidents. The changes include: (a) ipsilateral nigral degeneration after striatal infarction; (b) Wallerian degeneration of the pyramidal tract in the brainstem after supratentorial pyramidal(More)
Unlike fenestration of the posterior cerebral arterial circulation, fenestration of the anterior cerebral arterial circulation has not been well described. We investigated the location and configuration of fenestration of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) detected by magnetic resonance (MR) angiography. We found 6 fenestrations of the MCA among cranial MR(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic hypersensitivity pneumonitis (CHP) has a variable disease course. Computer analysis of CT features was used to identify a subset of CHP patients with an outcome similar to patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). METHODS Consecutive patients with a multi-disciplinary team diagnosis of CHP (n = 116) had pulmonary function tests(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the distribution pattern of kinetic parameters in breast cancers with various molecular subtypes. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was approved by institutional review board and was compliant with HIPAA. We classified 192 invasive breast cancers of 186 patients into four molecular subtypes using hormone receptor (HR) and human(More)
