Bone scintigraphy is routinely used in the diagnosis of lower jaw osteomyelitis; however, the radiation dosage of 3.5 mSv is quite high. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) gives information about soft tissue and bone marrow alterations. This study compares the sensitivity of the two imaging modalities in the diagnosis of lower jaw osteomyelitis. Thirteen(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The use of bolus injections of contrast media containing gadolinium for magnetic resonance imaging and their potential use as x-ray absorbents require the evaluation of possible cardiovascular side effects. The hemodynamic reactions of high doses (0.6 mmol/ kg) of gadopentetate dimeglumine (gadolinium [Gd]-DTPA, Magnevist) were(More)
Die 3-Phasen-Skelettszintigraphie ist Standard bei der Diagnostik der Unterkieferosteomyelitis. Dabei ist die Strahlenbelastung von 3,5 mSv nicht ganz unerheblich. Mit der Magnetresonanztomographie steht ein bildgebendes Verfahren zur Verfügung, mit dem sich neben Weichteilprozessen auch Veränderungen des Knochenmarks erfassen lassen.

PURPOSE A prospective study of the value of MRI in the diagnosis of osteomyelitis of the mandible with special reference to the suitability of different MR sequences. MATERIAL AND METHODS In 13 patients, average age 55 years (12-82), with clinical suspicion of osteomyelitis of the mandible, 18 MRI examinations were carried out (STIR, TSE T2, proton and SE(More)
