BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Previous studies on the hyperdense middle cerebral artery (MCA) sign were conducted using > or =5-mm thickness noncontrast-computed tomography (NCT). The purpose of this study was to compare thin-section NCT with 5-mm NCT in the detection of thrombus in acute ischemic stroke. METHODS Enrolled were consecutive 51 patients with acute(More)
PURPOSE The authors report their experiences with the problems encountered during and after stent-graft placement in patients with aortic dissections. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between July 1994 and December 2003, stent-graft placement was performed in 60 patients with aortic dissections, 9 patients with Stanford type A dissection and 51 patients with type B.(More)
PURPOSE We investigated types and prevalence of coexisting lesions found on whole spine sagittal T2-weighted images (WSST2I) acquired from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and evaluated their clinical significance in surgical degenerative spinal diseases. MATERIALS AND METHODS Coexisting spinal lesions were investigated using WSST2I from 306 consecutive(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the therapeutic efficacy and safety of supplemental transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) through the extrahepatic collateral omental artery (OA) for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS We studied 21 patients with extrahepatic collaterals of the OA, among 1,512 patients with HCC who had undergone(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify the pulsatile small vascular lesion by echocardiogram (ECG)-gated computed tomographic (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) angiographies. METHODS Seven patients who exhibited small evagination at the cerebral artery bifurcations on 3-dimensional (3D) time-of-flight MR angiogram were enrolled. They were examined by conventional/ECG-gated(More)
