Magnetic Resonance Diffusion-Weighted Imaging (DWI) has been reported to be helpful for the differential diagnosis between abscesses and cystic/necrotic brain tumors. However the number of patients is still limited, and the sensitivity and specificity of the method remain to be confirmed. The primary purpose of this study was to investigate a larger sample(More)
The olfactory bulbectomized (OB) rat is a well-accepted animal model of depression. The present magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) investigation demonstrates alterations in signal intensities in cortical, hippocampal, caudate and amygdaloid regions in OB animals, but not in sham operated controls. Ventricular enlargement was also evident in OB animals. These(More)
The aim of this study is to evaluate, in vivo, trabecular bone structure of the calcaneus of healthy volunteers and osteoporotic patients by texture analysis of MR images. Automated methods of texture analysis cover a wide range of techniques enabling quantitative analysis of grey level intensity and distribution within a region of interest (ROI). Texture(More)
Automated magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) texture analysis was compared with visual MRI analysis for the diagnosis of skeletal muscle dystrophy in 14 healthy and 17 diseased subjects. MRI texture analysis was performed on 8 muscle regions of interest (ROI) using four statistical methods (histogram, co-occurrence matrix, gradient matrix, runlength matrix)(More)
Recent developments in high-resolution MR imaging techniques have opened up new perspectives for structural characterization of trabecular bone by non-invasive methods. In this study, 3-D MR imaging was performed on 17 healthy volunteers and 6 osteoporotic patients. Two different MR sequences were used to evaluate the impact on MR acquisition on texture(More)
