We have used dissociated, rat basal forebrain cultures to identify specific cell types that are potentially responsive to nerve growth factor (NGF). Expression of high-affinity NGF binding sites was examined. A subpopulation of cells containing choline acetyltransferase (CAT), the acetylcholine-synthesizing enzyme, exhibited high-affinity binding, employing(More)
Meniscal fragments may be difficult to detect on magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and yet are clinically significant. This paper describes and illustrates the MR appearance of an easily overlooked meniscal fragment. Ten knees, each appearing to show an abnormally large anterior meniscal horn (8 mm or more in height) were prospectively identified on MR(More)
The intraperitoneal administration of chemotherapeutic and biological agents as therapy of ovarian carcinoma is based on both theoretical considerations and experimental evaluations which suggest that tumor present in the cavity can be exposed to higher concentrations of certain antineoplastic drugs than can be accomplished if the agents are administered(More)
We report on the repositioning accuracy of patient setup achieved with a noninvasive head fixation device for stereotactic radiotherapy. A custom head mask which attaches to our stereotactic radiosurgery head ring assembly is fabricated for each patient. The position and orientation of a patient in the stereotatic space at the time of treatment are(More)
The virology section at St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center, Connecticut, is not a separate laboratory division but is a part of the microbiology division and is supervised by the same personnel who supervise bacteriology, mycology, mycobacteriology, and serology. Current volume is over 1,000 cultures yearly with 12 to 24 percent positive. Isolates are(More)
