PURPOSE To determine the efficacy of superselective angio-CT in the diagnosis of astrocytoma. METHODS Nineteen patients with astrocytoma had superselective angio-CT before chemotherapeutic agents were administered via superselective intraarterial infusion. CT was performed after contrast material was delivered through a microcatheter, which had been(More)
PURPOSE To compare a multishot echo-planar fluid-attenuated inversion-recovery (EPI-FLAIR) sequence with fast spin-echo FLAIR (F-FLAIR) and fast spin-echo T2-weighted (FSE-T2W) sequences in depiction of white matter lesions. METHODS Thirty-five patients with various white matter lesions were included in this prospective study. Two independent readers for(More)
Multi-shot echo-planar fluid-attenuated inversion-recovery (EPI-Flair) was compared with spin-echo T1-weighted (SE-T1W), fast SE T2-weighted (FSE-T2W), and fast Flair (F-Flair) in imaging brain tumors. In 32 patients with various different brain tumors, three reviewers independently evaluated image quality. Two reviewers evaluated the image quality of(More)
We connected two 3-inch coils to a dual phased array receiver system and sandwiched the shoulder between the two coils. To obtain a quantitative assessment of the improved SNR, we imaged a phantom with both the dual phased array coils and the standard shoulder coil. SNR as a function of distance from the coils was computed by the National Electrical(More)
The purpose of this paper is to retrospectively evaluate CT and MR findings of central nervous system (CNS) involvement of leukemia and systemic lymphoma in children. Over a 12-year period, sixty-five patients with leukemia and fifteen patients with systemic lymphoma underwent cerebral CT and/or MR imaging. Nine patients (11.3%) were diagnosed as CNS(More)
During a 3-year period, 6 of 50 children with systemic malignacies developed neurologic complications such as hemiparesis, convulsions and loss of consciousness. The children consisted of 1 boy and 5 girls, from 3 to 12 years old, 3 with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and 3 with malignant lymphoma. Four patients received induction treatment that included(More)
