BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Differentiating acute benign from neoplastic vertebral compression fractures can pose a problem in differential diagnosis on routine MR sequences, as signal changes can be quite similar. Our purpose was to assess the value of increasing the diffusion weighting of a diffusion-weighted steady-state free precession (SSFP) sequence for(More)
Inhibition of angiogenesis might be a therapeutic approach to prevent joint destruction caused by the overgrowing synovial tissue during chronic joint inflammation. The aim of this study was to investigate angiogenesis in the knee joint of mice with antigen-induced arthritis (AIA) by means of intravital microscopy. In 14 mice (C57BL6/129Sv) intravital(More)
OBJECTIVE Inflammation is associated with the invasion of leukocytes into affected tissues and with the up-regulation of platelet activation and adhesion. Assuming that leukocyte accumulation is linked to platelet aggregation, the aim of our study was to examine the effects of selective platelet inhibition by the glycoprotein (GP) IIb/IIIa receptor(More)
The head-up-tilt-test in pediatric patients for the evaluation of syncope shows a sensitivity of 35-85% and often requires pharmacological stimulation in order to improve its diagnostic value. We used a new device for beat-to-beat blood pressure monitoring combined with impedance cardiography in a 12-year-old girl during tilt testing. A seven seconds(More)
