Neurofibromatosis types 1 and 2: cranial MR findings.
Neurofibromatosis 1 (NF-1) (von Rekhlinghausen disease) and neurofibromatosis 2 (NF-2) (bilateral acoustic neurofibromatosis) have been recently recognized to be distinct disorders through geneticExpand
Marrow conversion before pneumatization of the sphenoid sinus: assessment with MR imaging.
To evaluate the bone marrow change before pneumatization of the sphenoid sinuses in childhood, the authors retrospectively reviewed short repetition time/echo time midsagittal magnetic resonanceExpand
Cerebral aneurysms: detection and delineation using 3-D-CT angiography.
PURPOSE We compared three-dimensional image (3-D-CT) angiography with conventional angiography to determine the clinical usefulness of this technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS We studied 15 patientsExpand
MR digital subtraction angiography for the assessment of cranial arteriovenous malformations and fistulas.
Contrast-enhanced MR images in patients with meningioma: importance of enhancement of the dura adjacent to the tumor.
Linear enhancement (flare sign) along the dura mater that was continuous with or emanated from the dural margin of meningiomas was frequently observed on contrast-enhanced MR images obtained in 18Expand
Cranial bone marrow in children: assessment of normal development with MR imaging.
Magnetic resonance images of cranial bone marrow in 238 patients (246 examinations) less than 25 years old were reviewed to establish normal age-related standards. Bone marrow in the clivus andExpand
Perfusion MR imaging with a superparamagnetic iron oxide using T2-weighted and susceptibility-sensitive echoplanar sequences: evaluation of tumor vascularity in hepatocellular carcinoma.
OBJECTIVE The study purpose was to examine the usefulness of perfusion echoplanar MR imaging with a superparamagnetic iron oxide (SHU-555A) for evaluating the vascularity of hepatocellularExpand
Assessing Blood Flow in an Intracranial Stent: A Feasibility Study of MR Angiography Using a Silent Scan after Stent-Assisted Coil Embolization for Anterior Circulation Aneurysms
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Blood flow in an intracranial stent cannot be visualized with 3D time-of-flight MR angiography owing to magnetic susceptibility and radiofrequency shielding. As a novelExpand
Effect of concurrent intra-arterial infusion of platinum drugs for patients with stage III or IV uterine cervical cancer treated with radical radiation therapy.
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to explore the effect of concurrent intra-arterial infusion of platinum drugs in patients with stage III or IV uterine cervical cancer treated with radicalExpand
Transient splenial lesion of the corpus callosum associated with antiepileptic drugs: evaluation by diffusion-weighted MR imaging
Abstract. Transient focal lesions in the splenium of the corpus callosum have been reported in epileptic patients receiving antiepileptic drugs. The characteristic imaging features included an ovalExpand
