This study evaluated the sensitivity of a 3.0-Tesla (T) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in measuring cerebral phenylalanine using proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy and in assessing MR-documented white-matter changes by means of diffusion studies (diffusion-weighted imaging, apparent diffusion coefficient map; diffusion tensor imaging) in patients with(More)
1. Tourette's syndrome is a disorder with a multitude of complex behavioral problems with major implications for social impairment and emotional pain. 2. The generic care plan anticipates the predictable management problems in adolescent patients. It offers nursing interventions, particularly structure, which is important in managing symptoms. 3. The(More)
This study was performed to clarify the role of perfusion-weighted imaging (PWI) at 3 Tesla in the characterisation of haemodynamic heterogeneity within gliomas and surrounding tissues and in the differentiation of high-grade from low-grade gliomas. We examined 36 patients with histologically verified gliomas (25 with high-grade and 11 with low-grade(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the potential role of newly developed, advanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging techniques (spectroscopy, diffusion and perfusion imaging) in diagnosing brain gliomas, with special reference to histological typing and grading, treatment planning and posttreatment follow-up. Conventional MR imaging enables the(More)
Any surgical approach modifies the normal anatomical and functional arrangement of the segmental spine which is aimed, therefore image interpretation cannot ignore a correct set of knowledge in the field of anatomy, pathophysiology, drug compliance, interventional radiology and surgery. Neuroradiological imaging has an important role before surgery to(More)
