There is an increasing body of evidence pointing to a neurobiological basis of personality. The purpose of this study was to investigate the biological bases of the major dimensions of Eysenck's and Cloninger's models of personality using a noninvasive magnetic resonance perfusion imaging technique in 30 young, healthy subjects. An unbiased voxel-based(More)
Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) represents a diagnostic challenge due to the diversity of clinical presentation. The radiologist should be aware of the common neurological features. Unenhanced CT may show the first indications of venous sinus occlusion. Confirmatory diagnostic imaging should be performed with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and(More)
OBJECTIVE A systematic review to determine whether the diffusion-weighted (DW) magnetic resonance imaging scan can reliably detect residual or recurrent cholesteatoma after mastoid surgery. DESIGN A systematic review. DATA SOURCES Databases including EMBASE, MEDLINE, CINAHL, Web of Science, and Cochrane Review were searched for studies published without(More)
INTRODUCTION High complication rates have been cited following olfactory groove meningioma (OGM) resection but data are lacking on attendant risk factors. We aimed to review the complications following OGM resection and identify prognostic factors. METHODS A retrospective review was performed on 34 consecutive patients who underwent primary OGM resection(More)
OBJECTIVES To report a new case of cavernous hemangioma of the optic chiasm and to review all previously published cases with regard to presentation, surgical treatment, and outcomes. DESIGN Case report and literature review. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Cases identified though PubMed and published literature. Presentation states of patients in terms of visual(More)
Tinnitus may be continuous or pulsatile. Vascular lesions are the most frequent radiologically demonstrable cause of pulsatile tinnitus. These include congenital vascular anomalies (which may be arterial or venous), vascular tumours, and a variety of acquired vasculopathies. The choice of imaging depends on the clinical findings. If a mass is present at(More)
Skull-base cephalocoeles and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks may be congenital, spontaneous, or secondary. A classification of congenital lesions is formulated and the imaging features are illustrated. The concept of spontaneous skull-base CSF leaks and the significance of aberrant arachnoid granulations in imaging these patients are explored. The majority(More)
AIM To compare the qualitative assessment of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow using a SPAMM (spatial modulation of magnetization) technique with cine phase contrast images (cine PC) and fast spin echo (FSE) T2-weighted images. MATERIALS AND METHODS SPAMM, PC and T2-weighted sequences were performed on 22 occasions in 19 patients. Eleven of the studies were(More)
Hippocampal shape anomaly (HSA), characterised by a rounded hippocampus, has been documented in congenital malformations and epileptic patients. Subtle structural hippocampal abnormalities have been demonstrated in patients with schizophrenia. We tested the hypothesis that HSA is more frequent in schizophrenia, particularly in patients from families(More)
Giant cell tumour (GCT) of bone is an uncommon primary bone neoplasm typically occurring at the epiphyses of long bones in young adults. They are osteolytic neoplasms with approximate local recurrence rates of 25%, and 2% of patients develop pulmonary metastases. These tumours appear very rarely in the skull, with those few reported cases arising(More)
